If Instagram is your jam, this checklist is for you!
But first bust a myth I hear time and time again. "The more followers you have, the more sales you'll get." That is absolutely not the case. It doesn't matter if you have 10,000 or 100,000 followers if your followers aren't engaged. Your follower count is just a vanity metric.
The truth is: real growth happens when you stop focusing on vanity metrics and start focusing on attracting the right followers and the relationships you create with them.
Building meaningful relationships with your tribe is key to growing your reach, engagement, and above all: making sales.
Here are 5 daily Instagram tasks that will lead you down the road of success:
☑️ Spend 15 minutes engaging and nurturing your current community. This means commenting on their post, stories, and sliding into their DMs.
☑️ Spend 15 minutes engaging with ideal clients.
If you only have time for one of these two, always pick your current community first. Trust is compelling and when their social media friends see your accounts communicating, they'll be more likely to click follow and interact with confidence.
☑️ Respond to all comments and DMs on your profile. Social media is intended to be social. Don't post and ghost on your audience.
☑️ Start an authentic conversation in your DMs with 5 members of your current audience.
☑️ Check your insights. If you have a professional or creator account, these stats are free, y'all. Use them to determine the best time and day to post and what content your audience is vibing with the most.
That's it. Do these 5 things every day and you'll start to build the community that leads to major growth.
