How to Get a Million Instagram Followers for a Day

Are you a photographer trying to get more Instagram followers? One of the most common tips you hear for growing your tribe is to share your best work. As actor Steve Martin famously said, “Be so good they can’t ignore you.”

It’s fantastic advice. Unfortunately, even if your pictures make the Mona Lisa look like a finger painting, it’s easier than ever to be ignored. Instagram now has over 500 million users posting more than 52 million pictures every day!

Should Photographers Join Instagram?

When Instagram started out, it was meant to be a place where people shared basic moments of their daily life. As it grew in popularity and saw everyone from movie stars to presidents sign on, posts became more curated. Top names in the photography world from National Geographic to Magnum photographers joined too.

Although some argue this was the death knell of Instagram, an end to sharing our unfiltered selves through Gingham-filtered glasses, others saw an opportunity. Photographers found it inspiring to be part of a global social network, one where everyone speaks the same visual language. And companies found a new channel to market their goods.

instagram-followers-02

Some naysayers think Instagram, which is a mobile-first social network, is a second-class platform. What photographer wants their pictures to be viewed on a tiny mobile screen? The fact is that today almost 80% of social media time is spent on mobile devices.

Whether you are a pro trying to market your business or a hobby photographer wanting to interact with like-minded people, you need to be where your audience hangs out. Instagram is that place.

Something Terrible about Instagram

Steve Martin’s advice about getting discovered was great, but it doesn’t work as well in the Instagram Age. There are plenty of photographers who struggle to find an audience. P.T. Barnum gave some more pertinent advice when he once quipped, “Without promotion, something terrible happens…Nothing!”

On Instagram, you need to be proactive when trying to build your following. Unlike Facebook, there is no Share button to help new people discover you. Also, the Instagram algorithm doesn’t do much either to put your pictures in front of new people. The majority of engagement on your feed usually comes from your followers, not people who randomly stumble on your work.

instagram-followers-03

As a result, the best way to introduce your photos to a new audience is to get other Instagram accounts to share your work. There are two ways to go about this. You can ask other photographers to share your work. Or even better, you can get featured on hubs.

Leverage Hubs to Build your Tribe

Hubs are Instagram accounts that feature other people’s photographs. Think of them as a sort of variety show that shares what is happening in the world of Instagram. Each hub is like a channel. For instance, there are nature hubs, architecture hubs, street photography, and food photography hubs to name a few. A hub can be owned by an individual, a group of people, or a business.

This photo below I took in Malaysia was featured by the FreedomThinkers feed. According to their website, their mission is to inspire their viewers to travel the world. That aligns with mine so I was happy to share my image on their account.

instagram-followers-04

Some hubs are run just for fun as a way to create community. Other hubs are backed by a company and exist to market a product or service. Either way, they’re a great way to expose your work to a new audience.

To get a hub to share your photo, just include the relevant hashtag in the caption of your photo. You can usually find out which hashtags to use in their account bio. If the hub owner likes your photo, they will share it and credit you by sharing your name and IG feed address. The exposure you get can, in turn, drive traffic to your personal feed, resulting in an increase of followers.

instagram-followers-05

How to Go Viral on Instagram

Instagram is like the news, once one channel breaks a story, others quickly report on it as well. Many hubs copy their featured photo selections from other hubs. This creates a domino effect that can give you massive amounts of exposure.

For instance, my “Dark Towers” photo was featured on more than 20 hubs. One of those was on the Game of Tones feed which you can see below. I didn’t ask all of the hubs to share it, many featured my image because they saw it on another hub. Those hubs together had a combined follower count of over a million.

Having that many hubs share your picture doesn’t happen every day. On the other hand, it’s not uncommon to have at least a few different hubs share your photo at once.

instagram-followers-06

5 Killer Tips to Get Seen on Instagram

It doesn’t matter if you are a total newbie or seasoned pro, or if you have 100 followers or 100,000. There is a hub out there for all levels and types of photographers. Here are some tips for getting featured:

1. Know your hubs. To get featured you need to put the hashtag and/or tag your photo according to each hub’s request. Don’t just blindly tag a hub because it’s popular. Ask yourself if your work fits the style and quality of the hub.

2. Focus on your location. Geographic hubs are a great place to start. Look for ones that focus on a region like your city, state, province, country, or the place where you are traveling. Some examples are @ig_nycity or @uk. An added benefit to local hubs is that you can actually meet people in your area.

instagram-followers-07

3. Search according to types of photography. Consider genre hubs like @nightphotography or @urbanromantix. They are great for discovering like-minded photographers.

4. Try for small hubs when you start. If you are new to photography and/or Instagram, start small. Aim for hubs with less than 10,000 followers at the beginning.

5. Share with brands. Don’t disregard business hubs. These are some of the largest out there. For instance, the magazine Travel + Leisure @travelandleisure has over 2 million followers and regularly features photos from other IG feeds, as does @travelchannel.

The Super Secret to Instagram Exposure

This is my final and most important tip. Follow the hub you’d like to be featured on along with the admin of the hub.

instagram-followers-08

Some hubs will even direct you to “follow [insert name of hub admin(s)] to be featured.” The hub admins want exposure just like everyone else as they want to increase their follower count too.

If the name of the admin is not stated in the bio, look at the last few photos posted in the feed. There is often a note saying which admin selected the featured photo.

The Golden Rule of Engagement

Once you know who the admin is, friend them, visit the admin’s feed (not the hub), like a few of their photos, and then comment on one or two of their pictures. Be sure to write something that proves you aren’t a robot. In other words, don’t just leave a thumbs up or “Great shot!” comment.

Most importantly, don’t be human spam. Do not ask the admin to view your feed. Do not ask them for feedback on your work. And never ask them to feature your photo.

instagram-followers-09

If you take the time to interact with the admin’s photos, it’s possible they will visit your feed. And if they like what they see, you just might get featured. Reciprocity is the Golden Rule.

In the end, the hub admins are like gatekeepers, the editors of social network magazines. You want your photos in front of their eyes. Get them to know who you are. Connecting with a hub admin is the single most important thing you can do to get featured, besides creating amazing work of course.

Are Instagram Hubs Worth the Effort?

Some might say social media is a waste of time. It’s undoubtedly better to be out with your camera than staring at your phone.

instagram-followers-10

In my case, that Busan roof topping photo that was shared on 21 hubs got me a few hundred followers. It doesn’t really matter, though. Life is not a popularity contest. Whether you have one fan or one million, the most important thing for any photographer is to create.

On the other hand, the act of creating is deeply bound with the act of sharing. There’s nothing wrong with photographing what you love and keeping it for yourself.

But if you want to share what you’re passionate about with the most people possible, then let the world know. Or as writer and producer Dan Harmon put it, “Find your voice, shout it from the rooftops, and keep doing it until the people that are looking for you find you.”

8 Unconventional Social Media Marketing Tips

let's jump start social

If your social media marketing efforts aren’t getting the return you were hoping for, don’t give up just yet. This doesn’t mean that it won’t work for your brand altogether and it may just be time to mix things up a bit.

Let me guess…you’re posting frequently, sharing really interesting content that you thought would get your audience buzzing, but engagement just isn’t that great?

Sometimes playing it by the book doesn’t quite cut it in the world of social media and the nature of it means that customers often expect a more personal touch than within the general marketing realm.

Once you have discovered what works best for your brand and what pushes your audience’s buttons, social media marketing can be an extremely valuable tool for building your brand awareness, creating a loyal customer base and increasing profits; so it’s worth doing well and formulating an effective strategy.

Here are a few slightly unconventional social media marketing tips that could work for you.

1) Thank Your Followers

Manners cost nothing and people are naturally drawn to those who have a polite and friendly manner about them, so what’s stopping you from exhibiting this on social media?

An auto-generated thank you message is fine if you would just like to thank people for following your account, but if they are engaging with or sharing your content with their network, it’s important that they get a human response from you.

You can personalise your interactions by looking at their profile and complimenting/commenting on something they shared; or alternatively asking them for their own thoughts on the content that they engaged with.

2) Get to Know Your Customers

Your customers are the ones who keep your business flourishing, by buying your product and recommending it to others, so it’s important that you show them that you value them by getting to know them.

Make a point of recognising your most engaged and loyal followers and making the effort to get to know them a bit better. Treat them like your friends, by interacting with their posts and making conversation with them regularly. By connecting with your customers on a more personal level, they are more likely to form a loyalty with the brand and become an ambassador for your brand.

3) Join Hashtag Trends

There are a number of weekly hashtag trends which provide you with the perfect opportunity to expand your reach and brand awareness. By posting content on one of these hashtags it will make your update visible to everyone who browses the related results and will encourage engagement from users who may not necessarily have had contact with your company before.

Some of the popular trends are #MondayMotivation, #TravelTuesday, #WisdomWednesday and #FridayFeeling. Stumbled across a quote that’s bound to get people rearing to go on a Monday morning or a funny post that’s sure to get people excited for the weekend? Get sharing them on the hashtags!

The same goes for keeping up to date with current events and getting involved in conversation about popular topics. Try to keep things positive and uplifting, as people are more likely to follow an account if they have something encouraging or optimistic to say.

4) Get Visual

Images speak a thousand words and updates that include an image generally receive a much higher level of engagement than purely text, so get visual wherever possible! These images can original images that you have taken/created, such as photographs of your products, eye-catching graphics or photos of your team at work; or alternatively they can be images sourced from elsewhere.  Funny memes or GIFs always work really well and are likely to get shared. Just make sure whatever you share is high quality as you don’t want it to look sloppy.

5) Stand Out

Don’t blend into the crowd and allow yourself to go unnoticed. Quirky content will catch people’s attention and make them remember you! So as long as it is in keeping with your brand image,  you shouldn’t be afraid of sounding a little silly, as humour and personality is something that a lot of people value and look for from a brand when they decide to follow them on social media. Funny or unusual content is also more likely to be shared by other users, so get them laughing!

6) Encourage User Generated Content

User generated content is a really effective method for expanding your brand awareness, as each time somebody shares content related to your brand it exposes you to their personal network. It can also build a sense of community as gives followers a sense of involvement in the brand themselves when they work as a brand ambassador on social media. You can develop brand-specific hashtags for your fans to share their content on, collecting it all in one place and making it easier to browse through. Sharing some of the best posts shared by your followers or launching a competition are great ways to get people involved and make them feel valued.

7) Broaden Your Facebook Reach By Narrowing It

Recent changes to the Facebook algorithm means that many brands have found that their organic reach has dropped below 10%; however you can achieve a slightly broader reach by targeting your post according to gender, age, location, etc. You can target your posts by clicking the targeting icon next to the location tool at the bottom of the posting box on your business page.

8) Post Before or After the Hour:

There’s a lot to learn from your own social media use. Think about when you browse social media the most. If it’s when you’re on the move, you’re not alone. By posting either a couple of minutes before or after the clock strikes the hour, it is a clever way of catching people when they are on their way to or from a meeting or appointment, as this is a common time for people to check social media. Clever eh?

Posting updates during the lunch hour and evening are also good times to catch users.

6 Ways To Market Yourself Better With Instagram

Market Tips For Instagram

If you think you know all about Instagram – that it is just a way for hipsters to swap heavily processed snapshots of their cappuccino – then think again. Because it’s purely based around images, Instagram has become one of the most effective social media vehicles for photographers; unlike Facebook, you’re not competing with silly memes or news stories, or all the general chit chat and background noise you get on Twitter. It takes a while to learn how to use Instagram effectively though, so here are some tips to ensure you make the most of the big I…

1) Be There and Don’t Be Square

Par6997812
Instagram have made its name with distinctive 640×640 square images, but you can now post images in other formats too. This is particularly good news if you want to post a landscape image, as you won’t have to crop bits off, and it also makes posting video a lot easier. Indeed, posting video that wasn’t recorded with Instagram apps used to be a real headache; given the growing importance of video in advertising, this change was probably inevitable. So if the square format restriction put you off in the past, you now have more flexibility.

2) Upload Your Best Images Regularly

tumblr_npbzuaxgII1upqzato1_1280

A neglected Instagram feed will put followers off, so as with your other social media properties or indeed your website, you need to keep it populated with good images. Think of yourself as a curator of your best work, rather than regarding Instagram updating as a chore. It’s essential if you want to build any kind of following.

3) Be Consistent

instagram_android

Again, as with Facebook, if you are using Instagram for business, don’t mix messages. It’s going to look weird if you are regularly posting serious documentary or travel images, and then start posting goofy selfies or trivia/smut. Or if you start posting heavy human-rights stories when you are known as a wedding or pet photographer….

4) Keep Your Personal Information Updated

818c9442ca99c391_shutterstock_182593865.xxxlarge_2x

It is particularly important you do this with your contact details, and they should include details of your website and Facebook and Twitter pages. It’s all very well generating lovely images and having a great looking Instagram feed, but it will all come to naught if potential clients can’t hook up with you.

5) Don’t Forget Captions

instagram-iphone-app-1920

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it can be worth even more if you provide an illuminating or entertaining caption. You can use hashtags in your write-ups to attract people who are interested in similar things (eg weddings) or people in your area. Words and pictures work very well as a package.

6) Make It Easy to Share Your Images

Instagram-Update
Don’t get too obsessed about protecting your images or making them hard to copy. You want people to share your images, and start talking about you. If you are that worried, make images small to begin with, so they can’t be used at any decent size, or watermark them, but try and do this subtly. Heavy-handed watermarking can put potential clients off.

How to Monetize Your Blog in 5 Steps

How to Monetize Your Blog

Making money from your blog can be a pipe dream for many people. The mere thought of being able to write about something you’re passionate about and have that result in actual money in your pocket is enough to make anyone smile.

However, with all of the blogs in existence only 14% make any money at all. In fact, it’s actually quite difficult to make money from your blog if you don’t start with the end goal in mind. For instance, having a blog about underwater basket weaving might not be a topic that can actually turn into profit. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but it’s going to take a lot of dedication and perseverance to build a profitable blog.

Below we dive into a process that will help you monetize your blog and turn your passion into a real-life business.

1. Choose a Niche That Can Be Profitable

The overall profitability of your niche will determine how much money you can make from your blog. If your niche is too small, then you may not have enough interested people to actually monetize your blog.

One great way to choose the right niche is to select an evergreen niche. These are proven topics that people have spent money on, and will continue to invest in over the long-term.

Some of the most common evergreen niches include:

  • Business and finance
  • Relationships
  • Health and wellness

When choosing a niche it’s important to also select a topic that you enjoy writing about, have experience in, and have some innate ability. Without these traits it’s going to be difficult to stick with your blog over the long run. Making money from your blog isn’t a short-term endeavor, as building an audience and cultivating authority takes a long time. 

2. Create Share-Worthy Content

You need to create stellar content if you want to create a blog that’s actually worth reading. The content you’re creating will be the backbone of your blog. By failing to invest the time and energy it takes to create amazing content, it’s going to be very difficult to actually build an audience around your work.

Content that stands above the rest must be educational, entertaining, offer a unique perspective, and be thoroughly researched. Go above and beyond and your audience will thank you for it.

3. Have a Website That Promotes Your Goals

Your website must be professional and assist your monetization efforts. It’s going to be difficult to profit off your blog if your design is overly amateur. Luckily, there are a variety of ways you can easily build a professional looking blog.

To start we recommend using a CMS like WordPress. WordPress is a great blogging platform for beginners and will allow you to choose from a variety of free and paid themes that will take your site to the next level.

WordPress is great for bloggers as there are also a variety of plugins that will enhance the functionality of your website. Be sure to check out our post on the top 4 free WordPress plugins for bloggers.

4. Grow Your Audience

Posting blogs on your own site is great. But, what if no one is reading your blog? How will they find out that you even exist? It’s important to have a variety of outreach methods that’ll send traffic back to your blog and make other people aware of your work.

We outline a few of the most common traffic generation methods below:

Choose a Social Media Platform and Stick to It

Social media can be a great way to grow your audience and sends swarms of traffic back to your blog. Building a social media presence takes a lot of work, so it’s important you choose a single platform and stick to it. Once you’ve grown your audience on one platform, then you can branch out to other platforms.

Grow your social media presence by sharing your own articles, sharing other relevant and valuable information in your niche, and creating specific content focused on that platform.

Guest Post in Front of Larger Audiences

Guest posting is a very effective way to get your message in front of large and overlapping audiences. Sure, you’ll have to work to find the right guest posting opportunities and create brand new content. But, you’ll receive the benefits of gaining exposure to new segments of your audience and obtaining relevant backlinks to your site.

Most sites you guest blog on will give you an author bio where you can link back to your website. If you guest post on sites with large enough traffic numbers you can expect your posts to send a flood of new traffic to your site as well.

Consider Syndicating Your Published Content

Content syndication is a great way to gain additional exposure from blog posts that you’ve already written. Essentially, you’ll be posting the same blog you published on your site on a bunch of other blogs in your niche.

A few popular sites that enable you to post things that have already been written include Medium and LinkedIn.

Network With Other Bloggers in Your Niche

The relationships you build with other bloggers in your space are incredibly valuable. They’ll not only be able to share and promote your content, thus growing your blog, but you may be able to partner by selling each other’s products to your audience as well (we go into this a bit more below).

You can get started building relationships by leaving thoughtful comments on their blog posts, responding to and sharing their social media posts, and even sending gratitude emails about how one of their posts helped your life in a certain way. Relationship building is a long-term game, make sure you build up rapport before you go in for an ask.

5. Choose the Right Monetization Method

How you choose to monetize your blog will depend upon how much traffic you’re getting, the type of niche you’re in, and what feels best for your business. We recommend experimenting with a few different monetization methods until you find the one that aligns with your own business goals.

The most popular monetization methods are outlined below:

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is essentially selling other peoples’ products to your readers in exchange for a commission per unit sold. Digital products usually have a very high commission, which makes this a great way to monetize your blog.

If you’ve been thinking about spending time creating a certain product for your readers it could already exist. By promoting this product you’ll save yourself the time and energy it takes to create a new product from scratch, and you’ll be able to recommend something valuable to your readers.

Some common ways to promote affiliate products are by creating a review post on your blog with a link to the product, or promoting the product to your email list.

Setting Up Advertising

The two main methods of advertising on your site are either selling individual ad slots, or by using Google Adsense or a similar platform. Essentially, you’ll post ads on your site, within your content, and on the sidebar of your website. Then you’ll receive income either based upon clicks or ad impressions.

Usually, advertising only makes sense if your blog receives a lot of traffic, otherwise this method won’t be very lucrative.

Selling eBooks and Courses

Ebooks and courses are a great way to package up your knowledge and sell it to your readers. One of the best ways to ensure the profitability of this method is to create a blog post that tests out the idea, or by running a survey to find out the deep needs of your audience.

This will allow you to see if your readers are actually interested in the course or eBook you want to create.

Monetizing your blog will take additional work, but it’s time well spent if you truly want to be able to get paid to write about something you care about. As you can see from the process above monetization is actually one of the last steps in the blog creation process. But, by following the steps above you’ll be able to make your dream of turning your blog into a business a reality.

7 Ways to Use Pinterest to Promote Your Business

Image centric social networks are rapidly gaining market share due to their high engagement levels.

Everyone apparently loves an enticing photo.7 Ways to Use Pinterest to Market Your Business

Pinterest has become the social media network to watch after growing over 4,000% in the last 6 months.

At an average of 88.3 minutes per visitor it ranks third on engagement behind Facebook and Tumblr and well ahead of LinkedIn (16 minutes) and Google Plus (5.1 minutes).

Pinterest is a social network with a simple premise: Users share photos that they find online by “pinning” them, the equivalent of “liking” a status on Facebook or giving a +1 on Google. Users have to download a toolbar that can be used to pin items from any Web site. The photo and information then appear on your Pinterest board, and users who follow you can see your collection of photos and even re-pin them if they like them. The simplicity of this system does not lend itself to obvious marketing strategies, but there are a number of ways that you can use this growing social network to promote your business:

1. Share Your Products

The most obvious way to use Pinterest for your business is to pin your own products to share with other users. There are a few ways that you can leverage this strategy for the most benefit. Since you can create several boards, it is best to group your pins into product categories for specific customers, such as items for moms, kids, artists, and others. Doing so creates a virtual product catalog of interest to these consumers or for gift ideas for these groups. You can also create a “best of” board, showing off your most popular products.

7 Ways to Use Pinterest to Promote Your Business

2. Add to Gifts

When you create an entry for your pins, you can add a price tag. When you select this option, you can then add a link, pointing back to your Web site. Items added in this way are automatically included in the “gifts” section on Pinterest, which is a virtual catalog of gift ideas. Be sure to select your best photos for pinning, and include an evocative description.

3. Highlight Services

Not every business sells products. Pinterest is still a useful marketing tool for these businesses. If you provide a service, you can create a kind of visual resume with Pinterest. For example, if you design Web sites, you can pin a screenshot of a home page. If you are a graphic designer, you can pin samples of your work. If you offer other services, such as consulting or writing work, you can use Pinterest to share photos that inspire or that share a message about your work. For example, financial consultants could pin to photos that represent client goals, such as financial independence or financing education. Non-profit groups can share photos of the clients they are helping.

Pinterest for selling services

4. Maximize SEO Efforts

When you pin your products, you have an opportunity to maximize your SEO strategy and to drive trafic back to your site. You create quality backlinks whenever you or other users link to your products. When you write descriptions, you can use your targeted keywords, which will attract your target customers and encourage them to visit your site. You can share your pins on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter, encouraging more links to your products. All of these efforts will help to drive more traffic to your site and to increase your search-engine ranking.

5. Offer Added Value

Savvy social-networking users can easily identify a profile that is designed primarily to market products and services, and they are likely to avoid these profiles. Offer other users more reasons to visit your profile by offering them added value. Pin to other products and services that will benefit them, but that also complement your own products and services. For example, if you create custom wedding gowns, you can link to other bridal accessories or to beautiful wholesale fabrics. If you are a Web designer, you can link to useful tech gadgets.

6. Offer Exclusive Content

Encourage users to interact with you on Pinterest and to visit your Web site by offering exclusive content. You can hold contests by asking users to re-pin your items for each “entry.” The more items are re-pinned, the more buzz you will build around your products and your site. You can also offer exclusive discounts or other promotions by using a QR code or other tactics.

7. Engage with Users

Pinterest is a social network, so take the time to form relationships with other users and to build a community around your brand. When you see that users have re-pinned your items, comment and thank them. Follow other users, and this will encourage them to follow you in return. Ask for customer feedback by encouraging them to re-pin their favorite products in your catalog. The more you can do to encourage customer interaction, the better relationship you will have with them.

With the number of Pinterest users growing rapidly — as much as 4,000 percent in the last six months — the site is quickly becoming a dominant player in the social-networking field. Finding ways to leverage this site to promote your business is important to your overall marketing strategy.
