    If you can spare $12, there are straightforward tutorials on Udemy. I always spend a little under $15 in Udemy to learn something fast and straightforward. Yes, there are a lot of tutorials on YouTube but sometimes following different tutorials from different people produces a confusing result and takes more time.

      Yes I agree. Find one good valuable course to follow and don't get distracted by other things around you. It doesn't need to be udemy you can also use another good one. But once you found it stick with it.

    I think paid ads are the way to go .Give instagram ads a try to see how its going ,sometimes going organic its a steady and low process as they give priority to ads

    IG can be very lucatrive if used correctly. Focus on value and customer brand experience. No blatant selling. The viral capabality and reach is immense. Focus on decent content then rely on your bio link to drive traffic.

    I think you are on Facebook also ..... If not then create account and page for your business. Link your Instagram account from Facebook page ..... So bye this way you can advertise or market your products or services at both platform.


    If you want to marketing yourself then use most suitable hash tags with each post .... Try to use unique pictures and contents to get more better response.


    Also care about posting time because its also playing big role to drive traffics from social media. There are many tools or online sources ..... from there you can know easily that at which time in which country or state or city you should post to get more engagement.

    If your goal is to get clients, I'd start with Google Ad Search Campaign and maybe supplement with Google Display Ad Remarketing Campaign. Social media is more for long term brand awareness, not for generating high quality leads that will convert today IMO.

    As most of the comments are stating, using paid ads but also monitoring this data using tools like Google Analytics and HotJar. Instagram is great but it requires a lot of time engaging and producing great content. Even so, building it up to the standard you'd want will take time. Maybe start with it on the side and see what happens alongside ads too.

    Instagram is one of the best social platforms for promoting brand awareness and increase audience traffic. Once you have created your IG Business Account, make sure it is optimized - searchable @usernames, on-brand profile pic, informative bio description with CTA, and a clickable link to your website. Schedule regular posting of relevant content with high-quality photos. You can create a content calendar and use Apps like Later or Hootsuite to do the posting, so you don't have to do it yourself every single day. To increase followers, you can either do Organic or Paid Ads. You may follow Instagram Influencers so you can have ideas on how they do it. I hope this helps.

    Instagram is an inspiring place for a lot of people and I know from personal use! The amount of profiles I discover and love is crazy and more business-type brands are dominating. Before diving into any ads, I suggest making sure you have a brand theme on your profile. Understand the content you want to post and make a plan so you are consistent. With our Instagram, we lacked engagement and we saw no progress. Engaging is so so important as it works with Instagram's algorithm to help you rank. Utilising stories is a great way when using Instagram, its not all about feed posts. Feed posts will show up to people who have an interest in your page, its not based on posting times anymore. Therefore, if you arent engaging or making use out of stories, your posts will struggle to be seen. If your posting content surrounding fitness/health then I'm assuming you want to inform and help others. Your approach with content needs to answer potential questions, stand out but also come across entertaining/interesting. Once you've built up your page more, you can use it to backlink to other things you do. Ads are great if you want more traffic but you cant forget about building organic! Use your insights to monitor success and create adapted strategies after trialing them. You should just go for it and see what works best!!

    If you're going to go with IG, you might have to wait a while before seeing any results. The platform is great for established, major brands but sucks for smaller businesses that don't have huge footprints yet. You definitely want to start with Google first and supplement that with your IG efforts. Once you have built up a following, you can start investing more in IG. Get more followers, more likes, more views.


    The more engagement you get, the better for your brand. As already stated though, this will take time.
