Today’s Audio MASTERCLASS: Leveraging a Powerful Social Media Strategy in a Digitally Driven World.
[01:11] – Ryan shares something interesting about himself that most people don’t know.
[04:10] – How do we set up a bio that’s really appealing to people and that generates more interest on Instagram?
- When a lead comes to your page, your bio is the first thing they notice.
- Capitalize on this section; if you’re a 7-figure earner, you have to put it in there.
- Make sure that in your bio, you have a nice point of contact.
- Make sure that your backend email under the settings of your profile is different from the front end email to avoid hacking access to your account.
- There are tools out there you can leverage to help do a lot of things for you.
- Ryan is using Linktree to turn the one link that Instagram wants you to have into multiple links.
[09:06] – What are hashtags, and how do we use them the right way?
- Make use of the 30 hashtags Instagram allows you.
- Research 10 hashtags that have over 5 million hits and that are related to your niche.
- Then research 10 hashtags with 250,000 to 5 million hits.
- Then 10 hashtags with less than 250,000 hits.
- Finally, create 3-5 hashtags that are geared to your brand specifically.
[15:09] – What are other tools people can use as a substitute to iPhone’s text replacement tool?
- Use the notes section on your iPhone.
[16:13] – How do you get more attention when posting to our Instagram feed?
- Have a clear vision and know your niche.
- Be consistent. Post at least once every 3-4 days. Instagram rewards you for keeping people on their platform.
- Make sure that you’re doing quality over quantity.
- If you have around 10,000 followers, post once per day.
- If you have around 100,000 followers, post twice per day.
- If you have more than 100,000 followers, post 3-4 times per day.
- Break your columns down to different categories: one column for personal posts, one column for motivational quotes and videos, and one column that’s for your business.
- Research your competitors and model what you see working for them. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel.
[21:50] – What are “stories” and why are they awesome? What is the best way to utilize them?
- Stories give your followers a behind-the-scenes look into your business and/or lifestyle.
- It allows for a deeper connection, and people like connection.
- Sometimes it’s hard for people to post daily, but stories free you up from that. There is no limitation to how many stories you can post.
- People can relate to people better than actual brands or logos.
- Leverage the “swipe up” feature once you reach 10K followers.
[27:31] – SPONSOR
[30:06] – What is IG Tv? What are its pros and cons, and how do we use it?
- It’s another way for Instagram to become a major player in every segment when it comes to digital marketing.
- Because it is new, now is a great time to get a head start on this feature (since not a lot of people are doing it.)
- Most people connect with videos. It draws in an extra 65% more engagement than a normal photo.
[33:48] – How do we pull the bio, the feed, stories, and IGTV together to keep growing?
- Make sure that you’re interacting with your target niche.
- Use the power of networking and community. There has to be genuine interest.
- A neat, little way to scale is to engage quickly – check your post 15-30 minutes after you upload it.
- Study the algorithm. Look and see what accounts seem to go viral over and over again. Reach out to those people. Engage in a real conversation with them and get their thoughts on methods that they’re using in order to go viral
[42:15] – How can you monetize on Instagram?
- It doesn’t matter how big you are. Brands are starting to utilize micro-influencers a lot more.
- Brand collaboration is huge when it comes to monetization.
- Another way that you can monetize is through shoutouts from smaller brands.
- Use swipe ups to build your email list.
- Helix Lombard method: build a network of influencers who have credible audience and leverage all of them together for one paid promo.
[48:20] – Ryan’s parting piece of guidance
- Get involved. You don’t want to spend your life on the sideline. Get on the playing field. Create success in your life. Anyone can do this.
