Oh Instagram…my social media platform of choice. I really do have so much love for this little app it’s sort of ridiculous.

Can you believe that Instagram is only about eight years old? Not even eight! That’s crazy, right?

I mean, what the heck did we do all day before Instagram? I mean guess there’s Facebook, but yeah whatever lol.

So since I’ve never done a post about what are my favorite tools for Instagram I thought I’d do a little share today.

Keep in mind that Instagram has helped me grow my business to multiple six figures as a wedding photographer. It’s allowed me to partner with some big brands and also travel to the most tropical and wonderful locations I never thought I’d ever see.

So my friends, that’s why I speak so highly of this little app, and why using these tools is such an important part of my social media strategy.

So here it goes…

Tools to Grow Your Instagram Followers

Grow your Instagram engagement

Tool # 1: Later

Later is an amazing scheduling website and app that allows you to schedule out all of your Instagram posts for the entire month (on the free plan @ 1 post a day)

It won’t actually post for you (you have to manually do so), but as an official trusted third party app for Instagram, you’ll be sure to never get your account blocked when using.

So how does a scheduler help you grow your followers you may be asking?

Well, it’s quite simple. When you actually take time to schedule out all of your posts it makes it much easier to stay consistent.

And consistency is key when it comes to growing your following.

Another reason to love this tool is the whole drag and drop feature. You can easily drag and drop your photos to create the perfect “grid”. Half of the reason people like following people on Instagram is their beautiful photography. By curating your “grid”, by different themes, color story, etc, you’ll be able to create more of a mood board for your entire brand.

Tool #2: People Map.

This is one of the newer tools I just recently discovered, and I have to say…it’s pretty freakin’ ah-mazing.

This site (it’s is $20/month just fyi but totally worth it) is an absolutely genius way of finding your people. Basically the way it works is that you can search anyone in your niche and hit this magic “analyze” button which then takes all of their followers who have most recently engaged with the person you “analyzed”. From there you can filter out these followers keywords, hashtags, engagement, likes, you name it. It’s awesome.

So in terms of growing your followers, you’ve gotta do this thing called “mining and grinding”, which is basically analyzing and liking and commenting on people in your niche. And we’ve all heard the whole “like and follow” game, but this is a very strategic approach because you’re actually engaging with people who might potentially want to follow you as well.

It even shows you who as engaged/liked back or followed you back from all of your “mining and grinding”.

I’ve definitely seen a huge spike in my engagement and followers since I’ve started.

*I am such a fan, I’m also an affiliate, so be sure to say I sent ya and you’ll get $10 off your first month.

Tool #3 All-hashtag.com

This is also a new site I recently heard about. (Well maybe it’s not new, but it’s new to me lol)

This site will find any hashtag in your niche just by typing in your keyword.

The coolest thing is that it generates Unique hashtags or Best hashtags so you can sort of pick and choose which ones you want to use. And there’s even a simple “copy” button so you can copy and paste right into your Later scheduler. So simple, definitely give it a try, it’s free!

Taking Instagram Connections Offline: What I’ve Learned

Make a personal connection Because we are in the business world, it can be easy to feel like you need to be all about business 24/7. On the other hand, the best way to make connections is to find something you and the other person both enjoy or have in common. It’s important to get away from the computer and email and meet in real life.

The number one thing you need to know to stand out on social media that no one will tell you!

Social media is like a sea of information. Great content mixed with spam and things that are not relevant at all. It is probably everyone’s number one time sucker and it’s easy to get lost, unconsciously and unintentionally, getting sucked in. Standing out on social media is getting harder and harder by the second. You can’t just post something. You have to post something remarkable and inspiring, that is also short and easy to ready in 10 seconds or less.

 

So why is it so hard to stand out on social media? Do you find yourself saying or feeling?

“There are so many people doing the same thing as me, how am I  going to easily and quickly show that I can do it better?”

“Social media takes too much time. I barely have enough time to edit all my photos.”

“This is all overwhelming, I do not even know where to start.”

“I do not feel comfortable putting myself out there so much and acting like I know what I am doing.”
