What’s up guys, it’s Los. If you haven’t figured out, I talk about Instagram, I talk about Facebook, I talk about marketing in general.
Welcome to Business Thoughts.
Today we’re gonna talk about why you need to start using Instagram stories to make money.
See, Instagram announced stories a while ago. It got so popular that now we see Youtube copying them and you can start seeing people doing stories on Youtube. Does it work? Kind of, it’s a little weird, little buggy, but Instagram killed it.
Took all the business from Snapchat and now everybody lives inside of Instagram. But if you’re not using Instagram to make money, you’re just waisting time.
The fastest way to make money on Instagram is to create stories every single day. If you’re thinking, man I can’t do that, I dunno what to talk about, I dunno how to do these things.
I’m gonna give you a few tips to help ease your mind and help you focus on creating content that you will ultimately use to make you money, to create relationships and connections on Instagram.
Now before I go into it, I wanna talk about relationships and connection.
There are a lot of people that are just not willing to DM people or build relationships, they think it’s spammy. I’ve made some super high-level relationships connections of just following people on Insta, commenting on their stuff until they notice me.
Then they follow me cause they’re like, all right I kinda see that he’s doing something too. Then we start laughing inside of the comments together, it breaks the ice and then I boom I’m all up in those DM’s.
I say “Hey, what’s up man? I love your stuff, I would love to collaborate, and I’ve had people fly down here and collaborate.
Now I’m partnered with one dude Goody Beats. We’re working on some of his projects now and that started off Instagram.
Obviously all the relationships are genuine and some people are just my friends and stuff like that, if it turns into business awesome.
But you have to use this tactic to start making money on Instagram and start building relationships. Your net worth is your network. That is the realest thing I’ve ever learned in my life.
Using Instagram stories can make money. The fastest and simplest way to do it is to create a calendar. So there’s seven days in a week, there’s seven stories that you can be telling every single week.
I’m gonna give it to you like this. Monday hit people with motivation. Motivate people get them excited be like yo guys, it’s Monday we’re here, we’re setting up this is what I’ve got planned on Monday, boom boom boom.
Get them that motivation, give the that rah-rah, and be like all right I’m ready let’s do this, it’s exciting okay. It’s an engaging thing to get people to watch the rest of your week.
Tuesday, give them tactics and show them that like you’re really doing this, give a lot of value.
Wednesday, we’re gonna go in and we’re just gonna have some sort of a workplace Wednesday. If you’re a real estate agent and you’re kinda just driving around, show the homes, show everything. I’m always showing the office and kind of how we’re doing things, etc.
Thursday you’re gonna go back to tactics. Or give them some sort of a testimonial, show them what’s going on. You could teach them something and give them knowledge to help them in their space.
Friday can be casual. I call it f*ck a round Fridays. Show the fun sides of you and your life. I get a lot of tattoos, so I’m always showing my sessions. Keeping it fun and light.
It is a different version of me, you get to see my authentic self.
Saturday and Sunday just freestyle. Keep it easy, keep it light, make a promotion, talk to people, just have a conversation.
Maybe go live and be like what up guys, it’s me I want to talk to you guys about X, Y, Z. Just have a conversation that’s gonna stay and that’s gonna increase your views. It’s also gonna get a lot of more people to watch.
Make sure you put hashtags inside of your stories. What that does is it shows people where you’re ranking.
Let’s say I’m doing a Keto Transformation. I’m gonna put the hashtag #Ketotransformation because it has between 300,000 and a million people following it.
Rather than put #keto which has 25 million people following it, I would most likely not show up then.
Try to think about hashtags do some content research, and use that inside of your stories.
