Instagram Stellar Report By Aaron Blevins. This Presentation covers Why to Use Instagram and how to market with Instagram.
The Stellar Report WHY USE INSTAGRAM? Honestly, why not? Itʼs one of the hottest up and coming mobile photo sharing applications in the market right now. Donʼt believe me? They have just over 40 million users to date. Still donʼt believe me? Facebook believed in them so much, they threw down 10 million Benjaminʼs (thatʼs 1 billion George Washington's) to put their skin in Instagramʼs game, which tells me they arenʼt going away anytime soon. So what is so appealing about Instagram to peak that much interest? Well, is is a photo application that enables anyone, without knowledge of photography, lenses, ﬁlters, and without any creativity, to create stellar photographs in less than 30 seconds that some say might rival photos that took hours to achieve. Instagram gives you the ability to capture these photos with your smart phone camera, and then with the push of a few buttons retouch the photo, apply 1 of 17 ﬁlters, add a creative frame to the photo, rotate the photo, and add blur effects that sort of trick one into thinking the photo could have been taken with a nicer camera and hefty lens. Here are a few sample Instagram photos... 3 © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 4 © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 5 These photos are absolutely great. The features theyʼve provided to enable Joe Blow to be able to pull these types of photos off is the most appealing thing about Instagram to a majority of itʼs target market. However, these features are NOT the most appealing thing about Instgram for you and me. No. Because beyond all of these shiny features, Instagram has positioned itself to be a very powerful force for anyone in the business of building and monetizing an online presence. This new app has the potential to drive TONS of trafﬁc to any online money portal and be an excellent source of monetization for any business, both online AND ofﬂine. THAT is why you and I should be really, really excited about Instagram. There is incredible potential for us to capitalize on these 40 million fresh and excited Instagram users, and harness them for our online businesses. I mean, what would it do for your business if you could get in front of 40 million more people? Lots of good, Iʼm sure. So if youʼre not sold yet (you would have to be crazy to not be sold by now), youʼll soon see, by the end of this report, that © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 6 Instagram really is a pretty stellar application with massive potential. Another cool strategy behind Instagramʼs really fast growth is that it connects with other major social platforms. So if youʼre on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Posterious, or Foursquare, you can do a few really cool things. Number 1 - You can automatically send the photos you take to any of these social platforms that you have linked to your Instagram account. This means that all of your followers on any of these other social platforms will see your Instagram photos everytime you post, if thatʼs what you choose to happen. Number 2 - When you create your Instagram account, it will automatically (if you let it) see which of your other Followers on your other social platforms are also on Instagram, and will give you the option to automatically follow them. This is GREAT for building your following fast. Right now, Instagram is still so new, and so fresh, people are still in a less hesitant phase of following people. So itʼs much easier to get followers, most of the time, by simply following someone ﬁrst. There is also an incredible advantage if you get on Instagram AHEAD of all your followers on your other social platforms. I canʼt © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 7 tell you how often I receive these little message, all because Iʼm connected to someone else on another network... These little messages actually tell me two things. First, it tells me that I now have the ability to connect with these people on Instagram, since they are now a member. If I choose to, I could click their proﬁle link, and easily and quickly follow them. But secondly, and more importantly, when I get these messages, I now know that these people have most likely already seen that Iʼm on Instagram too, and usually (Iʼd say about 65% of the time) © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 8 they have already followed me by the time I check out their proﬁle. Pretty sweet, huh? So when you get these messages, just know that these are your friends who have probably already seen and connected with you on Instagram, so why not return the favor with a follow :) ------------------------------------ Alright, so now that weʼve hit on why we should be using Instagram, letʼs talk a little about how to get an account and some basics of the app. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 9 How To Get Your Instagram Account So here is the biggest challenge for many people getting an Instagram account - as of right now, it is only possible to sign up for an account on their smart-phone (or iPod touch/iPad) based application. There are options for you to use your Instagram account without a smartphone/handheld device, but in order to create an account, you must have access to the actual application on a device like the iPhone or iPod touch. So if youʼre currently smart-phoneless, I would suggest ﬁnding a friend with who currently has an account, and asking if you could sign up under their application. Itʼs a process that literally takes about 30 seconds. If this is not an option, I would suggest paying a visit to one of your friendly Electronics stores that carry Apple products and have them on live display. An Apple Store is ideal, but Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Target are also great places to try. Most of these locations will have either a live iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad on display in the store. They might even already have the Instagram application installed on the device. If not, simply login to the App store on the live demo device, and search for Instagram and download to the device. To download, you might have to create an Apple ID, but Instagram is a free app, and you shouldnʼt have to input any credit card information to download it. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 10 Once downloaded, you simply choose the “create account” option. Once created, make sure you sign out of the account, since itʼs on a public device. You donʼt want any other public users getting into your account. So before we talk about setting up your Instagram account, many of you who donʼt have Smart-Phones are probably wondering how you can even use the application if you donʼt have a smart phone. There are some great web-based applications out there that you can use to login to your account with, and then use to interact in the ways I describe later in this report. Here is a list of 5 really great web Instagram applications... Web.Stagram.com http://extragr.am/ http://ink361.com http://www.gramfeed.com/ http://instagre.at/ The two sites I use the most are Web.Stagram and Extragr.am. Feel free to check them all out though, and see which one you like the most. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 11 Setting Up Your Instagram Account Once you have signed up and created an account on Instagram, you want to make sure you do a few things. 1. Be sure to customize your proﬁle section with a quick blurb about whatever your account is related to. If youʼre creating a personal account, youʼll want to include some info about yourself. If youʼre creating an account that is niche speciﬁc, insert some engaging text that draws people in and makes them want to connect with you. 2. Also be sure to insert your website link in the website section. This is GREAT for driving trafﬁc back to your blog, an afﬁliate link, a CPA offer, etc. Weʼll talk more about this coming up. One thing to note about your website is that most of the people who will be clicking on your website link will be visiting it from some sort of mobile/hand-held device. Something to strongly consider would be, if you havenʼt done so yet, to create a mobile- optimized version of your site(s) in order to present your visitors with a much more friendly and engaging user experience. By having a mobile-optimized site, you will ultimately increase your engagement rates because, instead of being distracted with trying to make out what is on your really small site that isnʼt optimized for mobile, theyʼll be busy actually reading your content, opting in to your list, and possibly even making a purchase from you! © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 12 Getting Familiar With Instagram Your application icon looks like this. When you launch Instagram, youʼll notice a bar at the bottom with ﬁve different buttons. The ﬁrst button is your Home button, the location of your Instagram feed. This will be where your photos, as well as the photos of your followers, will be viewable. You will also be able to comment, like and share these posts on the home screen. The second button is the Popular section. These are the photos that are “trending” on Instagram right now. If you click on some of the photos in this section, youʼll notice that they have quite a few likes, as well as comments. These usually are from Instagram users who have a large following, and therefor are seeing a lot of user engagement. We will talk about how you can get followers by hanging out in this section, and other sections like this, later in the guide. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 13 The third button is your camera button. This is where you go to take and share your own photos from your device. You can either choose to snap a photo with your build in camera, or you can also choose to upload a photo from your deviceʼs library. This is also where you can choose to apply certain ﬁlters, frames, effects, etc. Below is a screenshot of what this screen looks like. Frame On/Off Blur Effect Rotate Options Filters (drag left/right to scroll through) Auto Image Levels Adjustment © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 14 The fourth button is your following and news section. Following is where you can see what your followers are up to on Instagram. You can see insight into what content they are liking, commenting on, who is following who, and just an overall great place to get insight into what your followers are interacting with the most. The news section shows you who is following you, as well as which of your friends and connections on other social networks now have Instagram accounts, as well as it gives you a complete view of the new likes and comments on your content. The ﬁfth button is your personal hub on Instagram. From here, you can... •Find friends connected to you on other networks •Search for friends by their name or username •See your suggested users •Invite people to join •Search Instagram by #hashtags •See the photos youʼve shared in one place •See the photos youʼve liked in one place •Edit your proﬁle •Edit your share settings •Change your proﬁle picture •Set photos to private •And ﬁnally, Log out of your Instagram account © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 15 How To Build Your Following Alright, so that brings us to the next step in your Instagram success - building your following. Once you have clearly identiﬁed which niche or niches you want to target, these are the next steps you need to take to build your following. Here we are at step #1. STEP 1: Identify Your Target Audience. This is a process where you will assess who your audience will be, which will then help you determine how to best speak to them and what methods of communication they will respond to the most. Each audience will be different. One niche might be mostly moms, while another will be artsy young people. You must clearly identify who the majority is that you will be communicating to, and then from there, research how they are already interacting with the types of content youʼll be posting. How do you do that you ask? That brings us to step #2. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 16 STEP 2: Search Using Hashtags. Once you have your niche selected, and you have a decent grasp on who your audience is, youʼll want to perform some searches on Instagram using #Hashtags (#yourkeyword) to determine which types of content the people in your target audience are interacting with the most, as well as how they are interacting with it. To perform these searches, simply visit the bottom right button, the one listed below... And then click the “Search Instagram” button on this menu. Then you will type in the hashtag keyword(s) related to your niche. These will be keywords that you feel like your niche is typing in/ tagging so that people ﬁnd their photos. To get an idea for the types of keywords people are searching for, simply type in your keyword (usually one word keywords work best) and then Instagram will show you all the related keywords people are also searching. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 17 See the photo below for an example... Once you have clearly identiﬁed your keywords, (itʼs a good idea to pick just a few, no more than 3 for the beginning) you want to begin your assessment of what types of images are getting the most engagement, or interaction. Good questions to ask yourself through this process include: -What type of images are being posted the most? -Is my original target audience in fact the ones who are posting and/or interacting with these posts? -If so, how are they interacting? © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 18 -Are they liking posts? -Are they also commenting on posts? -Are they also choosing to follow the user who posted the content they interacted with? These questions will help you determine which images you need to begin posting in order to also get the highest user engagement rates. User engagement rates are important because they will directly dictate how quickly youʼll see success from a particular niche or campaign. You might begin dabbling in a niche that isnʼt very responsive or interactive, which will in turn take much more time and effort on your end to see a successful campaign. This isnʼt necessarily a bad thing, and these types of campaigns can be very proﬁtable, you just have to decide what your goals are on the front end. So once youʼve clearly identiﬁed what types of content receives the highest user engagement, you now know what types of content YOU need to be interacting with and sharing. Which brings us to step #3. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 19 STEP 3: Like & Comment Like Crazy! This step is actually the easiest of all of them, and can be accomplished with the least amount of time. And, take special notice to the fact that the title of this step ISNʼT “Like, Comment and Following Like Crazy!” If you notice, I left follow out, because of the simple reason that when a new account mass-follows people, it is a bit of a turn-off to other followers. Granted, it isnʼt a complete waste of time, and many people will teach that in order to get followers, you have to follow, but Iʼll argue that itʼs actually better to be patient, and build a list of followers slower. I recommend this because it gives extra perceived popular value to your new visitors, and they will subconsciously be attracted to join you more than if they were just mass followed. If youʼve been on Twitter any, you know what Iʼm talking about. There is a certain celebrity status that is associated with people who have a high follower count, but not so high following count. It sets the user apart, and whether or not the visitor realizes it, they are drawn to want to associate with that person/account MORE because their ratio is so wide. Itʼs the whole concept of “we want what we canʼt have”, ya know? You know. So I saw all of that to say, what you will be doing from this point, after youʼve identiﬁed your 3 hashtags, will consist of typing in each hashtag into the search bar, which will look like this... © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 20 Once you click that bar, simply choose the “tags” option and then enter your keyword. From there, it will pull up all the photos that have been labeled with that hashtag. And potentially, if itʼs a good keyword, there will be quite a few photos. So then at this point, you want to choose this little button at the top.... What this does is make it easier, and quicker, for you to go through and like/comment on photos. In the other view, you have to choose each photo, and then like/comment. In this view that we will be using, you can simply scroll through the photos and press like nearly once per second if youʼre good. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 21 I recommend also commenting on photos that you think are particularly intriguing. If you do this, you will have a higher chance that person will actually follow you if they donʼt already have a ton of likes on the photo. Sorry for being a bit scatterbrained, but that actually brings me to another point Iʼd like to make - You actually want to focus on liking and commenting on photos that arenʼt popular. If you simply go and like/comment on all the popular photos, this will help you some, but usually by the time the photos make it to the popular page, the user who posted it will have no interested in you. However, if you are liking photos that arenʼt popular yet, and which also have very few likes/comments, you stand a MUCH higher chance for that person to follow you. This is simply because Instagram is still a very new application, and people LOVE to connect with others on it because itʼs so new and fresh! Sorry, that was something I wanted to make sure I threw in there because itʼs valuable to know. Alright, where was I... oh yes, likes and comments. So by this time, you should have changed your view to be able to scroll through photos and then easily and efﬁciently like and/or comment on them. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 22 If you set aside some intentional time to do this everyday, even at minimum of 5 minute chunks a few times per day, if your niche is even remotely responsive, youʼll begin seeing people following you simply from your likes and comments! Itʼs a freaking beautiful thing. And completely different from what Twitter has become. Twitter used to be like this back in the day, but now everyone is on Twitter, and itʼs much harder to get people following you because Twitter is inundated with junk people who have nothing to offer. But rather because Instagram is still very new and fresh and lots of people are still signing up for the ﬁrst time, most everyone is willing and able to follow just about anyone, as long as youʼre not doing anything too crazy (and even then, youʼll have a special group of people wanting to follow you ;). Hopefully all of that made sense to you. If it didnʼt, feel free to get on my Facebook account at Facebook.com/LikeAaronBlevins and ask me any question there. Iʼll respond asap to you! So that brings us to step 4. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 23 STEP 4: What To Do If You Donʼt Get Followers So, the reality is, this shouldnʼt happen. You will get followers by applying the techniques that Iʼve shared above, you just might not be getting them as quickly as you want. If you still arenʼt getting the amount of followers you want, check out a few of these Fiverr gigs... You can also do a search on Fiverr.com for “Instagram” and then choose “rating” at the top to sort by. This will give you the best gigs on Fiverr for Instagram. “I Will Get You 100+ Real Instagram Followers For $5” http://ﬁverr.com/followgram/get-you-50-instagram-followers-in-a- day “I Will Get You 70 Active Instagram Followers Plus 50 LIkes For $5” http://ﬁverr.com/instagramgod/get-you-25-active-instagram- followers-plus-50-likes-in-less-than-24hrs “I Will Do A Shoutout To 70,000+ Followers On IG For $5” http://ﬁverr.com/contactrobin/do-a-shoutout-to-more-than-50k- followers-on-ig If after all of this, you still arenʼt getting the amount of followers you want, you can try following people talking about your keywords. Attempt this for a period of time and see what type of response you get. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 24 If you still arenʼt pleased with your response after following others, I would go back through the previous steps and evaluate your niche, the type of content youʼre posting and interacting with, and your keywords and then begin testing other options. If after all of that, youʼre still not pleased with the amount of followers youʼre getting or not getting, it would probably be best to just try another niche. Easy, right? But I wouldnʼt be so quick to give up. It takes work and dedication to be successful at anything, including this. You can also always leave a comment on my Facebook page and ask me questions, if youʼd like. Iʼd be happy to help in anyway I can! So that completes section 2, How To Build Your Following. So letʼs not waste anytime and move on to Section 3, Monetizing Your Accounts. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 25 Monetizing Your Accounts So weʼve arrived at the fun part, the part where we make the money! This method is fairly simple to do, but the hardest part is judging when the time is right to promote your offers. But before we get too far into that, letʼs actually discuss how you will be monetizing and making your money. IDENTIFY YOUR MONETIZATION METHOD The ideal ways for you to make money will either be through... -Afﬁliate Marketing -CPA Marketing -Out of the box Methods The method that you use will depend on a few different factors: the niche youʼre in, the audience youʼre communicating to, and whether or not your audience is motivated to buy anything. This isnʼt going to be a course on selling or how to sell online, but you deﬁnitely need to be able to assess your audience and know what types of offers will convert the best. The best Afﬁliate networks to join are the following. If you donʼt have an account, head on over and join right now: © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 26 http://www.Clickbank.com https://afﬁliate-program.amazon.com/ http://www.CommissionJunction.com Afﬁliate networks are super simple to join, and usually can be completely right over their website. In afﬁliate marketing, youʼll be selling either a physical product or a digital product to download. The best CPA Networks to join are the following. If you donʼt have an account, head on over and join right now: http://www.MaxBounty.com http://www.WolfstormMedia.com http://www.Neverblue.com With CPA Networks, youʼll be posting links to sites where you get paid every time someone ﬁlls out a form, such as an email submit. I recommend the email submits over any other type of CPA offer, because they convert the highest. For each email submit, youʼll make anywhere from .50 to 1.75, give or take a bit. Types of offers include free ipads, giftcards, surveys, contests, etc. The CPA Networks are harder to join, and usually require you to call them to conﬁrm you are who you say you are. I recommend you do this, because youʼll most likely be rejected until you actually talk to a human being on the phone. They are really picky about this, but itʼs nothing to worry about. Just act like you © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 27 own the world when you talk to them, tell them how you will be promoting their offers, and youʼll be solid. CPA OFFERS These offers will work best for an audience that is pretty broad. If your niche appeals to people of all spectrums, itʼs best to go with a CPA offer. Depending on who your biggest audience is will determine whether or not you promote an offer that women would like, like perhaps a Victoriaʼs Secret, or rather a more broad offer like a starbucks giftcard or free iPad. Another great example would be Dating Site CPA offers. This works great, especially if youʼre marketing in the beautiful women niche on Instagram. These offers convert extremely well, and can pay anywhere from $1-$2 per lead. If youʼre interested in this, simply search “Dating” on your CPA network, and youʼll ﬁnd tons of these type of offers. Also, if youʼre intrigued by CPA marketing and youʼre interested in learning more about it, check out this cheap resource ==> CPA Loophole. AFFILIATE OFFERS Afﬁliate offers are great if you can ﬁnd a particular product to sell that appeals to a large part of your audience. For instance, if you were in the dog niche, Iʼd promote a dog training product from Clickbank. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 28 You could also promote an item straight off Amazon (itʼs a beautiful thing, you can now be an afﬁliate of ANYTHING on amazonʼs site now!). I saw a great product the other day - it was a pet-related thong that someone had posted. It had a cartoon of the particular animal that was in this niche right on the front of the thong. This would obviously appeal to the women in this niche, and is a great way of thinking outside of the box! If youʼre interested in becoming an afﬁliate at Amazon, click here ==>https://afﬁliate-program.amazon.com/ Commission Junction is also a great place for different types of products to be afﬁliates of, but I would check Amazon before you signup for CJ. If there is a particular product youʼre looking to be an afﬁliate of, Amazon would probably have it and it would save you the hassle of signing up for CJ. OUT OF THE BOX OFFERS So this is something that I learned from one of the guys I study under. Iʼm not going to give away the speciﬁc niche, but his niche has to do with animals and his out of the box selling is partnering with breeders. He has a huge following online in this animal niche, and he has partnered up with businesses online who breed this particular animal, and now he is promoting these speciﬁc animals from the breeders for sale on his account, and he gets a cut of each sale that is made. Itʼs a pretty freaking brilliant concept. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 29 Another great idea to get out of the box would be to create your own products, similar to what I mentioned about about the thong. You can use websites like CafePress.com and create nearly any type of product you want, setup a free online store, and then sell them via this free free service. So depending on what your niche is, you could choose to create products like t-shirts, mugs, stickers, and sell them. If your niche is the responsive type who are raving fans of whatever the niche is, you could potentially do quite well with a service like this. One ﬁnal method to getting out of the box would be to start some type of paid membership or email newsletter. You could charge as much or as little as you want with this, and it would be a great way to provide value to your fans that they wouldnʼt get from Instagram. Depending on what your niche is, you could provide news, discounts on related merchandise, interviews with prominent people in the niche, fun videos or other fun content worth sharing, and much more. The list could go on and on. I have seen people charge anywhere from $1/month to upwards of a few hundred dollars per month, depending on the niche, for a service like this. Just think, if you build a niche of 1,000 followers, and you can get 15% of them to join something like this, paying $10/month, youʼd be banking an extra $1500 from that! I bet if you think out of the box like I have done here, youʼll ﬁgure out more sly and sneaky way to make bank. In fact, I know youʼll come up with great ideas, because youʼre just me and the guy I © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 30 referenced above - another normal person who has the ability to think critically. So get on it! That concludes the section on Monetization, and brings us to the ﬁnal section on Outsourcing. From here, we will be discussing how you can outsource your entire Instagram campaign. WHEN TO PROMOTE YOUR OFFERS This is a great question that youʼve probably had in the back of your mind while reading the previous sections. And really, it all just depends on when youʼre comfortable with promoting your offers to a community that youʼre conﬁdent loves you and your content. Like I mentioned earlier, some people just want to blast out their afﬁliate links right out of the gate, and they forget the most important part of building a list; that is, establishing the relationship. You see, followers want to feel needed, and heard, and a part of something bigger than they are, and they do not want to be involved in something that pushes an agenda. And unless youʼve initially built a list of hungry buyers, you will need to warm your community up to believe in you and your “agenda”, which is to build a community. The reality is, this really is your main agenda. Monetization should always be secondary. Because, the second you turn into a salesy salesman, youʼll turn off and disconnect most of your following. And the only good way to keep your © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 31 followers attention is to give away and post content that they want to interact with. Your community and credibility really is built off simply highlighting individuals and their photos in your campaigns. If you can do that, and do it well, youʼll amass a huge following. Like I said earlier, every campaign will be different, but I usually like to go for at least a month without any type of afﬁliate promotion so that people can warm up to my content. Then, I will initially and sporadically work in an afﬁliate offer once, no more than twice a week. Really though, once is best. Just remember, your main focus throughout this whole process should simply be to keep building your community. The more followers you amass into your community, the higher the percentage will be that someone will interact and convert on your offers when you do actually post them. And the best way to keep getting followers and to keep your engagement rates high is to keep your offers as minimum as possible. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 32 HOW TO POST YOUR OFFERS This can be done in a few different ways. But the main method of posting will be as a comment onto your photo. And you must include some sort of call to action for them to click on the link you include in the comment too. I would also suggest using some sort of link cloaking/URL shortener for your links. I use bit.ly and they work really well for me (except for clickbank offers). By using a site like bit.ly, you donʼt have to type out some long afﬁliate address, you can simply just insert your shortened URL into your comment and go. Another good URL shortener is Ow.ly I would just make sure that whatever URL shortener you use, they donʼt ﬂag your offer as spam. Bit.ly does ﬂag Clickbank offers now with a huge warning for people that click on them, saying the site is unsafe... itʼs crap that they do that, really. Just make sure you test all your offers with your shortener and make sure they function how youʼd want them to. Other ideas to promote links/call to actions would be to insert text onto your photos AND your comments section. There are some great apps out there like Insta Text that allow you to write text right on your photos. This is another great way to make sure that your CTA and links are seen. To ﬁnd apps like that, simply search for “text on photo” in the Apple App Store and youʼll see a slew of them. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 33 Outsourcing Your Instagram Campaign Sooner or later, one realizes in most any business that time is their most valuable commodity, and should be used as wisely as possible. With that knowledge, one could easily and cheaply outsource certain (or even all) Instagram tasks that they arenʼt the most efﬁcient at, or that they just donʼt want to do, at a very cheap rate with a Fiverr Virtual Assistant. So if you donʼt want to spend your entire day researching keywords, or liking/commenting on photos, you should totally look into this great resource. And by the way, your VA complete these tasks via one of the web- based Instagram applications I shared previously. Here is one of the best Virtual Assistants on Fiverr. http://ﬁverr.com/macklove74232/be-your-virtual-assistant-for-2- hours If youʼre interested in searching for more assistants on Fiverr, simply search using the phrase “Virtual Assistant” or “Online Tasks”. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 34 Something to consider when youʼre delegating tasks like commenting, itʼs a good idea to create a spreadsheet excel document with different variations of comments that your VA can just copy and paste onto photos. That way, you are keeping your interactions fresh and youʼll be much less likely to get ﬂagged as a spammer. Examples of great comments you can change up and variate would be... “I love this photo.” “Great shot!” “Love this.” If you spend a few minutes trying to come up with phrases like the ones above that would apply well for most any photo, and then copy them into a spreadsheet for your VA, youʼll get a ton of milage out having them leave these comments for you. I would strongly suggest, once you get a few campaigns up and going on Fiverr, to look into paying a Fiverr VA to handle at least a few certain tasks. That way, you know that youʼre being as wise with your time as possible so that you can focus on making your campaigns the best that they can be, instead of getting caught up in completing monotonous tasks every day. © Aaron Blevins, 2012. www.AaronBlevins.com 35 ================================================== Well, you made it to the end!
