Instagram is one of the most popular social media sites out there. If you don’t have the app, you’re doing something wrong. If you’re not using it on a daily basis, you’re doing something wrong.
How to get your customers to promote your product on Instagram. The first thing you want to check out is giveaways.
Do a monthly giveaway. It’s that simple. You do a giveaway. You tell people to use a specific hashtag to be entered in the giveaway.
You’re going get a lot of people on Instagram to do it. If you don’t know how to spur it, well, just go take your email list and then go email them each and every single month on how you’re doing the giveaway and the contest rules, and what you’ll find is that everyone will go on Instagram and just start entering. And by doing this, you’re going to get way more brand awareness and sales.
The second thing you should do is, you’re selling products, so why not put in your products a flyer, or a pamphlet, or a brochure, or a card that just says hey, join the club?
Join the crew. Take a picture of using the product in service, put it on Instagram, and tag us. By making it cool, hip, and fun, and including this in every product that you’re selling, more people are just likely to promote your product on Instagram. It really is that simple. I don’t know why people aren’t including this in every product they’re selling. Even if you’re selling products on Amazon, put a flyer in there to get people to promote your stuff on Instagram. It really is that simple.
And last but not least, pay some influencers. There’s really popular influencers out there who have millions and millions of followers, and I wish I could tell you that you’re going get them to enter your giveaway for free, but they’re not.
If you give them some money, they’ll promote it, and if people see really popular influencers promoting your product, everyone will jump on the bandwagon and start buying.
More people are going to buy products and services, and you’ll see your revenue go up. But when you’re doing all this stuff on Instagram, don’t expect to ROI right away, as it can take up to six months to a year to do well.
And you can’t just do this as a channel to do well. You have to do SEO, content marketing, pay per click. When you combine all these channels, you can do well and will do well. If you just do one and only rely on one, chances are you’re not going to do as well.
