Lets talk for a second about instagram engagement. I get at least 5 messages a week asking me specifically how I grew my instagram following and how a person can grow theirs – I wrote an entire post about it which you can read here.
Before we get started, are you starting a business and want to see how to put that in your bullet journal? Then check out this post!
In summary it’s about genuine engagement, making sure you are consistent in your posting and not just posting once every 400 years. Hashtag research is also really important so remember to do that!
Another question I get asked alot about instagram is how to edit your bujo photos and in this post I covered off some excellent tips and tools to do just that from the pros!
So why track your instagram posts and what should you track?
Many people track followers – this is great if you are starting out and want to see your growth over time, but it can be frustrating if you are coasting around the 100 follower mark. Another things to track is engagement, moving your account to a business account can help you determine the best times to post and also potentially helps you establish what posts are most likely to be shared.
Have a look at some other more popular accounts and have a look at when they are posting and what hashtags they are using. This can really help you get an idea around when the best time to post is for you and use of hashtags. I also schedule my posts well in advance to make sure there is consistently content going out to our amazing followers.
Another great thing to track is reach – how many people that you dont know or follow are seeing your posts? Instagram can be such a powerful tool! So start tracking those stats we would love to see them!
