Your Instagram FAQs
Now, let's dive into some of the frequently asked questions I receive about Instagram:
1. How often should I post on Instagram?
- IT depends on how often you CAN post, and what your goals are. If you are trying to grow a new account, your posting frequency may be higher than if your goal was to convert referrals and keep a steady stream of leads.
2. How do Instagram highlights work?
- Instagram highlights are like tabs on your website. They can be used to organize and showcase your best content. Be creative with your highlights and use them to tell your brand story effectively.
3. Starting a new business: Should I create a new Instagram account or modify my existing one?
- The answer depends on your branding strategy. If you're the face of your business, your personal brand can evolve with your business journey. However, if you prefer to keep your personal life separate from your business, starting fresh might be a better option.
4. How can I grow my Instagram following?
- Avoid buying followers or engaging in follow trains; they don't lead to genuine engagement. Instead, focus on tagging, collaborating with accounts that share your values, posting more reels, and being consistent with your content.
