    Question How can I get more Instagram followers??

    Not for me personally, but for my business. I just created an IG page for my business a few months ago, and I only have like 60 followers. And most of those followers are people that I followed, but I don't want to follow random strangers on the internet. So how can I get more people to visit my business page? I take pictures of my products and I post them on IG. Every one of you young jits is on the interwebs nowadays just glued to your phones, so you must know.

    Appreciate any feedback.

    first figure out if IG is even worth putting effort into your marketing approach. for example, my business doesn't benefit a whole lot from it, if i did residential projects, sure, it would be great.

    do you have a my google business listing? that's huge. for my industry, it brings a lot of residential clients...BUT, maybe once or twice a month i get a nice commercial lead that makes it worth it. i also paid for SEO so i am ranked well, but the my google business listing is huge. post some pictures on it and ask your most prized clients to leave reviews. FYI, having a bad review or 2 isn't the worst thing in the world. a lot of people find it fishy when a business has 5 stars, having a >5 star rating has been proven to attract alot of clients. gives you legitimacy. just respond politely to the negative reviews.

    if you just want to appear to be big and popular on all social media platforms, you can purchase followers on fiverr.

    Yeah I have a Google listing with some reviews. Problem is getting these people to leave you a review. I always tell them, and it's even listed on the receipt, but they don't do it.


    I do a lot of hash-tagging, but that's just people liking my post. I need them to hit that Follow button. And advertising with Facebook and IG is a waste of money. I may start doing promotions with customers who follow me on IG as soon as they walk into the store. Extra 10% if you follow us right now.

    yeah, i've wasted a whole lot of money advertising with facebook, it's usually tire kickers/cheap asses. the reason is facebook has a passive audience, aka, you look at facebook to shitpost or **** around. google is a much better audience because you're not going on google to shitpost, you're usually searching for something you are ready to pounce on. i feel you on the requests for reviews...even with clients that rave about our work, they may even promise to leave a review and never do it. you gotta do a bit of selling on your end, maybe even be honest with the client tell them it would help you out if they could spend 5 minutes. i text my clients a direct link to the review page so they don't even have to bother looking for it.

    you're gonna have to get creative with your content. i am not sure what your business is, but get creative with the content you put on social media...something that will engage your audience so they are compelled to follow. a giveaway maybe? idk, put yourself in their shoes, why the hell do i gotta follow you? you said you have a store right? is there a very exclusive product you can get ur hands on that other stores may not stock or have access to? cuz there are people that will follow you and you may gain a particular reputation for shit like that...

    High is one of the only decent liberal human beings on this site, so good to see.
    He's clearly sober.

    What's your target market? Is Instagram the best platform to reach your target market?

    It's way too risky posting your personal shit on here, any number of trolls could make you look bad.

    UGC marketing is very powerful, have you looked into that or are you already using it?
