How To Get Free Traffic From Instagram
Instagram has become one of the fastest growing and hottest social media platforms on the web. If you think it’s just for sharing pictures you’re missing out on a tremendous opportunity to creatively bring targeted traffic to your sites.
- Instagram has over 500 million users
- Engagement is 10 times higher than Facebook, 58 times higher than Pinterest, and 84 higher than on Twitter
- A third of Instagram users have used their mobile to purchase a product online
- You’ll reach 100% of your followers per post… compared to just 6% on Facebook!
What Instagram can do for you is help you create a presence, expand your sphere of influence, draw in new followers and friends, and humanize your brand. And if you think that since you only sell other peoples products as an affiliate marketer you don’t need branding then you’re mistaken. I’ll save the topic of branding for another day but with social media going more and more visual (Instagram, Pinterest) you need a logo or a name to promote to start forming your own tribe.
The key to Instagram traffic is to NOT treat it as a photo album. Think of Instagram as a tool to help you give value to people who don’t know you. You must focus your efforts on using it to meet new people who can become your followers and eventually your customers.
The best part is… Instagram is still totally untapped with little competition to get in your way!
So how do you use images and photos on Instagram to drive more eyeballs to your own websites?
We’ll, if you’ve ever tried to get traffic and sales on Instagram, you know the struggle is real. Unless of course you happen to be a well-followed celebrity; and if you are you certainly don’t need MY help with traffic.
While the above facts certainly make Instagram sound like a dream come true for marketers…
All good right? Well… it was. But’s there been a development that has caused a problem.
Instagram Just Made A Problematic Change
Recent updates have completely changed the rules of the game. Before this change, ALL of your followers saw all of your posts.
That fact was a major selling point for previous Instagram methods and tools. But in June of 2016, Instagram rolled out an update that significantly affects your reach:
“The Instagram news feed is now algorithmic – just like Facebook. This means that Instagram will not show you content chronologically, but instead based on what Instagram thinks you want to see … if you’re a brand that advertises on Instagram, you can expect the organic reach of your posts to shrink.” – Wishpond, June 2016
By changing the rules, Instagram is clearly protecting its status as “the king of social engagement”. This means if you’re NOT using a tool that integrates with Instagram’s latest updates, you’re just not going to get the results you deserve.
Today, unless your followers are actively engaging with your posts, you’ll get buried in the newsfeed.
Cashing In With The NEW Instagram
This recent update has upset a LOT of marketers, but that means opportunity for us. Play it right, and Instagram can be even more profitable for you.
