    Generating traffic from Instagram on a blog is a bad idea for me. Since When you have a bog you have too many pages to work with and with Instagram you can only have 1 link so it cannot perform well in my opinion besides if you have products or service then Instagram can really go well.

    Instagram, at its core, is a photo-sharing, visual marketing network. So, in order to be successful on Instagram, you have to focus on creating a quality, aesthetic Instagram profile. If you don't have the drive or commitment to make a quality Instagram page, don't bother with half-assed content.
    Once you've identified your niche, develop a well-branded, captivating Instagram profile by having a:
    • Recognizable & Searchable Username
    • bio that is personal and encourages action
    • sticking to your content pillars (Behind the scenes content, User generated content, Product demos / showcase, Educational etc etc)
    Once you have put in the work into creating a well-branded, high-quality Instagram profile, you want to do everything possible to increase the payoff for all that work. There are several actions you can take to ensure every post receives as much attention and engagement as possible. The higher your engagement rates are, the more likely it is that Instagram's new algorithm will put your posts at the top of your follower's feed. You should ensure that you post frequently, post at the right times, and use a post scheduler in order to automate your Instagram and be more efficient.
    ONLY WHEN YOUR CONTENT IS GREAAAT is it worth it to pay for automation services and will you generate ample amounts of traffic. If your content sucks, following/ unfollowing, liking/ commenting will not be enough because you aren't giving people a reason to want to follow you. I personally use the business package to automate my instagram, on top of spending the time to make great content. The business package has an automated instagram pod- a like exchange, so when I was first starting out, it guaranteed at least 200 likes per post, so my engagement rates where great from the beginning which helped me grow faster. I have 100k followers in the golf niche after working it for a year, and have replaced my full income and then some. I love instagram marketing because while there may be a greater number of active users on Facebook, it is far easier to grow faster on Instagram and see results

    Besides what others have already mentioned, be active and get involved in discussions! That means to manually visit other profiles related to your niche (your target customers) and to Follow them, leave Likes and Comments.

    You can use bots too, but they are not as effective. It's much better to write genuine comments that are truly related to that post...instead of an automated "nice post!"

  • If you want to boost your Instagram. You can follow these simple steps:

    1. Post Consistently

    According to an average Instagram user posts once per day. Interestingly, users with a large number of followers post 2-3 times a day.

    This indicates that posting consistently gets you more followers on Instagram.

    2. Use Hashtags Popular in Your Niche

    Hashtags are incredibly popular and important on Instagram, more so than any other social network. By using the right hashtags, your content is exposed to a larger, more targeted audience.

    3. Use the Right Filters

    One of the first features that attracted some many users to Instagram was the fact that you could add different filters to improve upon your original photo.

    Instagram filters are still popular to this day. Using the right filters can lead to more views and engagement.

    4. Include Emojis in your Caption

    Here's a fun fact - Instagram reports that nearly 50 percent of all captions and comments on Instagram have an emoji.

    Hope this helps! best of luck!

    8,000 views a week for an account with 800,000+ followers is incredibly weak, that's about 1% of its userbase, meaning 99% of it is ignoring it / not bothering with clicks. I'd be incredibly worried about that. But that's Nylon magazine, and something for them to deal with.

    Apart from industry case studies, have you personally seen much success driving traffic to website via Instagram on your own accounts / client accounts?

    I'll suggest you to invest in paid traffic & insta ads. Because around 75% of Instagram users take any action, such as visiting a website, after looking at an Instagram advertising post.

    Instagram's ads are the most advanced social media advertising platforms where you can just access targeting options. Now try Instagram Ads Platform by yourself to promote your blog by sharing images, posts, dropping a link, and call to action in your posts. If you want any help in building a perfect strategy for your social media marketing campaign you can find some threads shared in this forum for that or just DM me.

    Hey there,

    As Instagram is all about sharing images and videos. You should share really good images that your follower is tempted to go and check out other posts by you. You should include links in description leading to your blog or website. The traffic you can generate also depends upon your niche. If it's like food or travel you will be posting relevant images and people love to see it but again it should be unique and eye pleasing. Hashtags should be your keywords which you are aiming at. Search for similar pages as yours and comment over there which also gives a way for people to go and check your page out the possibilities are low. So, basically, you have to pay really very close attention to your content you are posting. Hope this helps.
