One key reason your Instagram following isn’t growing at a good pace is because you aren’t using hashtags strategically.
Some of you may think you are using all of the “right” hashtag tricks, and getting really dang frustrated that your audience still isn’t gaining any traction….I get it, that’s how I felt my first 6 months on the Gram (which BTW was only 1.5 years ago).
I said WTF after each one of my carefully crafted posts didn’t get much engagement, or they did and it didn’t help grow my following at all.
At one point I thought, “Do I have to shake my bootie and show my body more to gain followers?” I wasn’t willing to play that game. Ya hear me ladies?
I started to experiment with hashtags, and track my results, after much tedious effort and lots of WTFs, I cracked that damn code.
There were Three things I was doing wrong:
- I was using hashtags waaaay too big for my small size audience. No one would even find little ‘ole me in a sea of influencers with hundreds of thousands of followers.
- I was selecting hashtags solely based on what the post topic was about, versus the people who find that particular post helpful, enlightening, or entertaining.
- I wasn’t thinking at all about my ideal client when selecting hashtags, and as I teach EVERYTHING must be filtered through the eyes, hearts and souls of our ideal clients.
Since you know I never hold back on teaching you exactly how to succeed in your business and in life, in this episode I will teach you my winning hashtag formula that has helped me attract thousands of ideal clients to my feed.
