Instagram Influencer 1mm+ here - looking for ideas to generate leads for featured posts on my page

11 replies
I own a large instagram page that is focused on unique and innovative products. I am looking for ideas on how to generate leads to email to offer to "feature" their product on my page. I currently have a VA that generates about 200 per week from manually finding contact emails from gadget site (gadgetflow.com, thegrommet.com, etc). Lead cost is $1 per lead, which seems way high to me. I have worked with crowdfunding campaign owners, website owners, inventors, etc.

I feel like I need to make some connections with professional marketers that handle marketing for multiple products. I have found that you can make multiple posts on my page and I don't see any deterioration of engagement. Instagram has been great for branding!

Does anyone have any other ideas to generate leads?

I have built out a clickfunnels page and started building out a keyword list for PPC..however, I was having trouble narrowing down the beginning / most applicable keywords to generate leads.

    Why don't you put in your bio: "DM me for a shout out on my page!" I know on Instagram a shout out is essentially the same thing as being featured. That way people who are interested will hit you up.

      Many travel blogging IGers who have some serious clout use this approach, benefits both parties.

    You can try these 2 of the most popular of these sites(there are smaller ones out there) to get shoutout/promo business:

    plughype.com
    buysellshoutouts.com

    These sites can help you get more business for your account but of course when you go through them they take a cut.

    Why not just reverse engineer equally influential IG members?

    Pay attention to their posts

    Many charge money for shoutouts

    You will have to provide a service like " shout out to so and so number of people" to generate leads. Anyway google is still your best friend. Anywhere you get stuck ask google.

    I used to be Head of Marketing for some large CPG brands and was responsible for new product innovation. Exposure on your IG site would be attractive to many brands. However, I think you may get better quality brands with outbound marketing. Have your VA search for news around the terms: new product innovation, new product launch, etc.
    Create a service where the brands could promote their new innovation to 1MM engaged IG followers for $__ dollars. Email or DM the offer through LinkedIn or IG right after the brand releases the news on their new product launch. Plus, the posts will be totally aligned with the current content.

      Rob, Thanks! This is definitely good to know. I have been trying to figure out the best way to get in touch with the appropriate people that manage CPG brand marketing budgets. I will definitely get my VA working on this. Do you still have any specific contacts that you can think of that would be interested? If so, please DM me. Thanks again!
