📲 3 Simple Steps to use Instagram to amplify Biz Reach

As I grow my Instagram account organically, I find that there are many fake profiles and people are wary of communicating with bots! Here’s a quick list of a few quick recommendations for Instagram amplification for business.

1. Get Active

Instagram delivers 58 times more engagement per follower than Facebook, and 120 times more engagement per follower than Twitter.Create a schedule that easily integrates into your current social media strategy.

Set a time each day to post your content and then additional times to come back and engage with your community.

2. Share Instagram good vibes

Here’s how you can do this:

Add social icons to your website and blog and create a call to action to follow and connect with you on Instagram.
Post your Instagram photo to Facebook. This creates a link back to your Instagram account, so anyone can click through.
Post your latest image to Google Plus and let your followers know where they can connect with you on Instagram.
Create images for Twitter and schedule multiple tweets sharing the news that you’re now on Instagram.

3. Introduce a refreshing perspective

Stay away from typical shots or standard stock photos. Instead, capture a unique aspect or feature.
Consumers want a sneak peek into your personal world.

Give them insight into the factors that set your business apart. Add some colour.

4 Simple Steps to Optimize your Google+ Profile

An optimized profile is always your foundation to your success on that specific social platform.
Let’s dive right in and quickly cover 4 Simple Steps to Optimize your Google+ Profile:
1. Write your summary using information about you and your business that will connect with those looking for your product or service. Make sure this includes your passion and hobbies that fall outside of your “job.” Conversations happen when you share interesting facts about yourself.
2. A professional profile image – Your profile image should be considered a key element to your personal brand. For this reason, it is extremely important that you create consistency from one network to the next by using the same high-quality professional headshot.
3. Use relevant keywords – Do you know what search terms people are using when looking for your business? Google is eager to tell your story, but without your keywords you could create a situation where consumers have to hunt to find you.
4. Get more local – As you craft your summary, remember to add your industry specific keywords as well as your location based keywords including city and country.
Hope you enjoy applying these quick strategies. They may seem simple and generic, yet are powerful when implemented.
