Tip 1: Pick a “Niche”

Whether it’s fashion and lifestyle, food, interior design etc. choosing a specific niche that you are passionate about is key to growing a loyal and large instagram following. People love to follow accounts that focus on specific interests and if you create quality content in that space, you will be able to grow your following quickly! 

Tip #2: Create Quality Content

Creating content that is creative, innovative, and fun is key in becoming an instagram influencer. People love to see aesthetically pleasing photos and videos, and know that you are passionate about the products you are selling and promoting. Another thing to remember is consistency is key when putting out quality content. Your followers want to be updated frequently about new products, promotions, and lifestyle updates. Daily posts and stories will keep your followers engaged and happy.

Tip #3: Get a Business Account

By analyzing what type of content is performing well, you will be able to move in a direction with your upcoming posts that you are confident will see a positive response from your followers and in turn, increase your following.

Staying engaged with these people and giving them a sense of community is key to building a reputable brand. As your fan-base grows, your followers will appreciate the quick response time. It pays off if they know you are really listening to their comments and questions.

Brand Loyalty

Brand Loyalty and Influencer Marketing

Brand loyalty is characterized by consumers repeatedly purchasing products from a particular brand. This loyalty can be attributed to their values as a brand, the quality of their products and services, and their brand image. Loyalty to a brand from a consumer perspective has nothing to do with price and everything to do with how the brand markets itself and the products and services it offers.

Why Posting Schedules Are Crucial

Why Posting Schedules are Crucial for Success

Whether you post YouTube videos or Instagram posts, as a creator, a major key to success is creating and executing a posting schedule. When a creator is looking to grow in follower count, among the many ways to do that is keeping a consistent posting schedule to engage with your followers.

Top Three Reasons

The Top Three Reasons Brands should Partner with Micro-Influencers

As a brand, you might feel as though you need a partnership with a major celebrity or an influencer with millions of followers to gain more recognition. While this is one strategy, bigger isn’t necessarily always better. In fact, micro-influencers hold massive power when it comes to influencer marketing campaigns.

Long-term Partnership

Why Brands Should Invest in Long-term Influencer Partnerships

Partnering with influencers is an effective way for brands to expand their existing customer base and grow their potential for more sales. Partnering short-term with influencers to promote one service or product can be effective, but creating a long-term campaign can be far more beneficial to brands and influencers. When a short-term campaign is over, both the influencer and the brand will move to find other partnerships, possibly leaving behind an amazing opportunity to expand and nurture an existing community into converting into a paying customer. If the creator matches the target audience of the brand and they have a great connection, there is evidence to suggest that a longer form partnership is more effective in influencer marketing, similar to email nurture campaigns which sometimes take 5-7 emails before a customer converts.
