Growing Your Instagram Organically: Conclusion (2019)


Instagram is hard work!

There are so many elements to creating a valuable Instagram. In this series of posts, I have only briefly went over the different elements of this social media platform. Instagram is a powerful tool for building your brand and acquiring new customers, but it has to be taken seriously.


Instagram isn’t a venue you can just simply post to and expect to gain attention. You really have to work for that attention:

  • Create engaging content for your feed that is both photo and video.

  • Create a constant feed of stories that will funnel people to you profile.

  • A/B test your profile bio.

  • Engage with your audience.

  • And more.

This is a lot to take into account and largely can be distracting for business leaders. Early on, it is reasonable for business owners to run their social media, but when they really want to scale their business, I simply do not think it is something they can do alone. They need to look in one of two places:

  1. Hire an inhouse marketer that will run their social media.

  2. Find a marketing freelancer that can do it for them.

Luckily, I can provide all this Instagram know-how for your small business. To start a discussion with me about what I can do for your business, click here.
