Using instagram to drive traffic/sales to my shopify store

4 replies
I have several large instagram fitness pages showing peoples before and after transformations. I recently set up a shopify store targeting women who want to lose weight or are in the process of losing weight. So im selling apparel, mugs, and fitness related jewelry.
I keep looking for the best ways to advertise products on instagram both posts and stories and people so far talk about either 1. pay a influencer to advertise for you or 2. Pay for instagram ads. No one really talks about if you have already got a strong following what the instagram stories/posts should contain.
So my question is what would be the best way to advertise to my audience to get them to buy?
I just posted a story showing a few of my products with the caption "Up to 35% off" at the end. Really I dont know how to get users to go to my site even with getting regularly 10K likes on a post so feel I really need to monetize my pages better.
Any help would be appreciated.

    Instagram is the best platform for business promotion. We can promote our business/brand in various ways like, Using Hashtags ( # ) that boost your brand availability.

    You can post images and videos that more impact on your business growth. As well as, you can connect with new users that related to your niche/category.

    There are so many social media agency in Miami that boost their brand upto the another level through Instagram platform.

    I think you need to work on the content and design of your Instagram posts. Apart from that, also try to include some of the most famous tags in your industry. You should create a creative banner that should be alluring and the content of it should show what benefit the buyer will get from your product. If you can communicate about your product's features, benefits, USP, etc with followers, you will see a good selling from Instagram too.

      This is a great idea! You could also hand out some merch to influencers or clients in the before + after photos.

    Part of the strategy that I employ is actually creating a creative that sits on your feed.

    So something as simple as a solid pink background with "check out our site for 30% off our fitness products" in a nice readable text - the exact same way you are probably posting quotes - except NOW you are creating a Call to Action.

    Do this S P A R I N G L Y as in don't do every 3rd image as this... I know some try to keep only the top middle image with this type of Ad image, and others dispurse 1 out of 9 - I tend to go somewhere in the 1 out of 15 range and maybe a bit less.

    Hope that Helps!

    PS I tried to find an example of this in use on someone elses feed that I am not associated with, and to be honest it was difficult. I did find a liposuction Clinic that was overdoing this but doing it none the less.
