CALLING ALL DESIGNERS AND
SKETCH NOTE TAKERS If done right, your followers will play a
crucial role in generating content around your brand. Users of Instagram upload something like 40 million pictures each day. Stage hashtagged photo contests with prizes for winners, share consumer images of your brand on your Instagram feed, and use creative hashtags to assemble photos around certain topics to increase consumer-generated content. Many businesses neglect the
opportunity to rely on partners to drive traffic to each other’s Instagram accounts. Customers, business partners, and suppliers often share similar audiences, so tagging them in your posts can help spread the love and drive traffic between you. Trending hashtags can also help your brand join photo “conversations” and send users your way that might not find your brand otherwise. Instagram is huge, but Facebook is
. . . more huge, and it owns Instagram. Adding an Instagram tab on your Facebook Page enables you to instantly share your Instagram photos to your Facebook fans. Finally, remember that simply gaining
followers on Instagram is generally not the end goal. Whether you’re looking to collect emails or send viewers to a product page for a special offer, use the endless character count allowed by Instagram with your photo to tell a story, and use a call to action that refers followers to the link in your bio that can be updated at any time.
