  • review rating 5  Good digital marketing agencies are hard to come by. I’ve probably used at least 5 different ones for companies I’ve started or consulted for. And I really enjoyed working with the team at Silicon Beach Digital because they were very hands on and explained their strategy and executed it professionally. A lot of the times I was stuck with an agency that wasn’t transparent and then it became very difficult to try to tie into results and see the return on investment. SBDA was the complete opposite and they really work with you on a budget especially if you are a start up! I highly recommend giving them a shot!

LEADS FROM INSTAGRAM: IT IS POSSIBLE!

Use Instagram as a lead generation tool. Here is how:

1. Optimize your Instagram bio for lead generation

Instagram presents a huge problem for brands. It doesn’t let you add clickable links in post descriptions or comments the way other social networks do. You’re only allowed one link from the bio on your profile page.

Since you only get one, you need to use that bio link effectively. Plan these three elements carefully to create a compelling bio:

  • The content
  • The link
  • The profile image

The bio content or text is the most important element. You can drive a flood of leads with a relevant and enticing call to action. The bio link is also important. Instagram only allows you to add one clickable link, so you’ll want to optimize it to get the most clicks.

2. Create an Instagram-specific landing page

You can easily set up a landing page using a tool like Leadpages. (Paid version after free trial).

Connect this to a drip email campaigns tool to optimize the conversion opportunity. You can use email marketing tools like MailChimp (free and paid versions) or Constant Contact. (Paid version after free trial)

3. Create and share great content

The Instagram platform is great for caption images; that’s why inspirational, motivational, and thought-provoking quotes work so well.

And quote posts are easy to put together. All you need are tools like Word Swag (free version), an app you can use to add text and fonts to free images. You can also use some of the more robust options like Canva. (Free and paid versions)

Feel-good content also performs well. You may have come across some of the Instagram videos from the nonprofit organization Shining Hope for Communities. These videos attract a lot of attention and engagement, simply because they make people feel good.

4. Engage and promote

The final step in engaging effectively with your audience is to post the right way.

Hashtags

Using the right hashtags (those relevant to your business or messages) can get you hits and “likes,” and even sales.

The free TagsforLikes app helps you find popular hashtags that can drive traffic and engagement.

Compelling calls to action

Clear calls to action can mean the difference between posts that get buried in feeds and posts that go viral. You need to add a mix of CTAs driving to your lead magnet opt-in, CTAs for engagement, and promotional CTAs.

Contests

Contests and giveaways are a proven way to drive leads and followers. Contests can be organized for cash prizes or for free products. Online marketing veteran Neil Patel acquired143,000 followers on Instagram using contests and giveaways.

Share for shares

Doing a share-for-share campaign is a super simple way to tap into the follower base of other brands on Instagram. You’d simply email a relevant brand and ask if it would like to do a share-for-a-share. If the brand’s team agrees, you share their posts first, and they’ll reciprocate.
