    Instagram has over 100 million users. I am seeing that a lot of people are using it for targeting a specific groups. The ones that are having the most success are the fashion designers and hairs sellers and also I am seeing a lot of cases.

    One of the downfalls is when people complain - the person doesnt really seem to reply but then when they do - they would remove the entire photo in questions.

    The best way to go about it - is to test whatever it is and I thinking (in theory) instagram is to Facebook as what the images are to Google. I hope that makes sense.

      Well for me right now I have a product.
      I am thinking creating an ig account for the product
      buy some followers traffic (they will unfollow if they dont like) just do a small % purchase. Honestly buying followers is like rolling dices.

      I will let you know what happens.

      as for the url link issue - you have to tell the basic customer to go to your profile and click on the url that is the only way however on certain app the link is clickable. I wont say which one but if you look around you will see what url is clickable (hint its a specific OS app)

      same concept you can do for Pinterest too.

      Using hashtags is a way to drive organic traffic to your IG account.

      I am actually working on a WSO for this. So that why I didnt really say much.

    Did you do any research into this before creating a topic about it? There's tons of information about this on Google already and it's like asking "how can you make money from your website". This depends on a ton of factors like what niches you're in, if you're trying to build a list, if you prefer direct sales, etc.

      That is all true but what is the best way to do it?
      I'm not much of an Integrations user,you know the usual: sharing and liking, but i do see the potencial,it huge!!!
      I think that because Instagram is very personal,the marketing has to be done on a personal level.(some how)

    I'd figure out where to find a modeling CPA program for mobile phones by e-mail submit or short form submit. Then find a pot or software for Insta Graham to advance, like peoples boats, automate everything for you and target hash tags like #selfpic or #selfie and things like that where girls are modeling for their phone and posting the pictures of instrument and follow those people are like their pictures and have multiple accounts set up automating with a link to your CPA program targeting all these people.

      This is exactly what I am doing . Abt to do a launch for a particular product (with its own IG account) the IG user profile allows you to add an url link

      So using the hashtags is key to success. I am working on a case study for an idea.

      I think Instagram = Instasales if can you convert the likes into buyers

    Instagram would depend on which market you're targeting into. I agree that it's more effective to fashion designers, hair stylists and accessories. For services like mine, i think its more effective when I use Pinterest than Instagram

    Regarding the hashtags, there are now apps that will automatically generate the proper hashtags for your images. I am not sure if it's available for Android smart phones but I am using it for my iPhone.

    Wouldn't it be great if Instagram automatically added hyperlink to links we include in the description. This would be a great way to drive traffic to your website but at present because this is not possible, I feel we are missing out on potential leads as Instagram is the perfect way to showcase your products with a strong hash tag follow through. Thoughts on this?

    Driving traffic to Pinterest is quite easy. I'm currently writing a report on how to get thousands of traffic with Pinterest on a daily basis.

    If your adding links to Instagram please DO NOT use Bitly links as Instagram are instantly banning these links.. Use only your real domain where ever possible.

    Just be quite general with your tags, don't post rubbish pictures really, its quite simple

    For instance if you post a picture of work put #Bored in there, soo many people tag this and it gets searched allot etc picture of yourself ? put #Smirk etc stuff like that

    I have quite a good following on instagram due to my "lifestyle" pics i post up, do the same put posts of what your online marketing earnings allow you to do etc
