If there is one thing in this life I do not like it’s this. Actually, there’s two things. One, I hate having to budget. Lately, it’s been stressing me out. And two, there’s always admin work to be done. Oh, how boring, is what you would say if you felt the way I do sometimes. And yet, it is just so darn necessary. Take your Instagram platform, for Instance. Err, you do have one, right? Anyhow, you don’t have to worry about budgeting too much here, but you do need to do your housework. Getting it all done gives you just one more Instagram like against your latest post.
I won’t stress you out. I’m already stressed, so I know how it feels. So, I’ll just keep to a short list. Because, generally speaking, the list of tasks to get through for successful Instagramming work is pretty much endless. Of course, even a fool would know that he doesn’t need to take them all to heart. All you have to do is select those essential tasks that apply directly to you, the kind of work you’re doing, the kind of followers you’ve got, and the kind of followers you’re still trying to attract.
The kind of presentation you’re trying to put together, and the kind of impression you’re trying to create, and so on and so forth. You get the message. So, the sample tasks you’ll be working on at some stage of your Instagram life, hopefully more regularly than not. Promote your hashtags. Be creative. Do your research. And work your bio link, that sort of thing. And how. Every Instagram platform needs it. Every business website needs it. A dedicated hashtag, and some.
The longer your statement or caption, the more space you should have for about three or four hashtags. Catchy and creative they can and must be, but it’s only ever going to make any sense to you if it’s linking up to your other social media platforms. And, of course, your main website. I’ve even been known to insert a hashtag or two in my email correspondence to prospective clients. It works, I tell you.
They get the message, and curious like the cat, they click on the blue text and, whammo, I’ve nabbed them. Let the business begin. You can learn how to make the most out of your hashtags by watching how the top trending influencers seem to be doing it. Of course, you’re going to be focusing on those souls who are like-minded and working similar niches. Yes, it doesn’t have to be exact. It’s called broadening your horizons. You’re creating more exposure opportunities for your platform and website.
Hope you get that I’m not boring. You get the message already that I’m quite creative too. And that’s important because you want to stimulate the interest of potential followers. Instagram’s all about action, a call to action to be precise. But if you want to be boring, blog about it. Cheers!
