Posting on your Instagram feed and stories almost daily can be exhausting and also cause anxiety. Here’s what you can do instead to stay engaged with your current followers and grow your community on the Gram!
Repost other accounts on your stories
Repost from someone similar to your niche on to your stories or mention them in your stories. If you do not use @mention sticker, they will not be notified and they also won’t be able to reshare your story on their story (story inception 😄). Usually when you repost content from another user they will reshare your story. Your screen name will then be visible to a new community and hopefully some new members will join your Instagram space.
Join Instagram lives
Join Instagram lives from your current community and make sure you ask a really valuable question. Your user name will stand out among all the live attendees. Follow some of the people in the live after it is over and don’t forget to keep the conversation going in the DMs.
Attend free and paid online events in your industry
Attend events from your peers like co working hours. You will make face to face connections that can lead to new opportunities and you will be welcoming new members to your Instagram community.
I’m hosting my next co working power hour on Monday August 10th at 12 noon PST/3 pm ET. Want more deets? DM me at @SalmasPalette with your e-mail address so I can send you the invite.
This free co working hour is for an entrepreneur or blogger that would like some online company while working on their project. The last 3 sessions have been super successful and filled with inspiring and helpful women.
