Instagram is currently the number one social media tool. As a visually focused society, this is a huge tool for bloggers. There are millions of people using it everyday along with billions of likes and even sales. But what I keep hearing over and over is so many people saying that instagram and blogs are disconnected.
In fact, there are some that tell you that you should ditch blogging and focus on instagram. But guess what? When you try to search for her information about that on the internet, it’s kind of hard to find. Know why? She doesn’t have a blog!
Blogging is a great tool whether you just want to express yourself, you enjoy writing as a hobby, you’d like to quit your job to blog, or you just plain love it. Instagram, I’ve found, is the BEST tool to get people to read my blog.
Instagram is checked more often that any social media source out there, shouldn’t we use it to direct traffic to our blogs?
Short answer: hell yes.
But there’s a problem, you can’t click on direct links like you can on Twitter and Facebook. That’s why it’s essential to gain and keep followers engaged and create a brand story that promotes your blog or business. When you create an aesthetic that people engage with, you’ll see that they’ll go to your blog and read your posts every time.
You have to create consistent, visually interesting content. Just like on your blog, you can’t just post sporadically and expect people to follow along. Next, you want to create a community. That means responding and engaging often.
The question that most people (bloggers and non-bloggers alike) want to know: do I really need followers? Yep. You do. Number one, the more followers you have, the more likely these people are here to see your content. Number two, it’s better for working with brands. When they see more followers that means more money.
BUT, a lot of followers and no likes isn’t good. You want to make sure the content you’re producing is interesting and people want to like what you offer.
Focusing on Instagram is a great strategy for increasing sales, readers for your blog, and so much more.
