How to drive more sales from Instagram. Did you know that Instagram has over a billion users according to Statista? Now just think about how many sales you are generating from Instagram. I bet you’re generating a tiny amount of sales from Instagram, if not realistically, zero sales. So how do you change that? Well, you could use ads, but that’s expensive. So what else is left? Well, there are a few strategies that you can use that work.
use Linktree. Linktree is a tool you can put in your bio on Instagram, and you can link to multiple products and services you’re selling. This is especially useful if you have more than one thing that you’re trying to monetize and sell. Best of all, it doesn’t cost any money to use and you can get it for free.
tell your users to Swipe Up. When you create stories, make sure you create stories promoting whatever you sell and intertwine them with educational advice.
For example, I may be releasing three different stories on Instagram on SEO advice, my first tip could be around content, my second one around how to generate more links, and my third tip around on-page SEO. And you would want to give tactical advice in those tips.
Now, right after the third story, I would create a fourth one saying, Swipe Up and we can end up helping you out. When you do this and a user swipes up it’ll take them to your website and you can collect a lead to sell a product right then and there.
sell going live. Have you heard of Tai Lopez? You know that here in my garage is a Lamborghini guy. And did you know that Tai owns companies like Dressbarn and Pier 1? If you live in the United States you’ve probably heard of at least Pier 1. They’re a massive furniture company. How did he own those sites? Well, he would go live on social media, and pitch people to be investors in his ventures and it worked.
Going live is a great opportunity for you to get in front of your followers and pitch them. The more educational your content is, the better you’ll be. But don’t forget to integrate that sales pitch. There is nothing wrong with selling and if you don’t sell, you’ll never generate any revenue. As my mom always would tell me as a little kid, if you never ask, you’ll never receive.
promote through a post. When you post on your well why can’t it be about your product or your service? Even if it doesn’t get as many likes or comments, that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with selling. And if you’re offering a limited-time promotion, you’ll find it’ll do even better.
