Are You Sick Of Wasting Time Trying To Figure Out How To Monetize Your Instagram? LadyBossBlogger Shares Her Secrets…
Two weeks ago, I took LadyBossBlogger’s “How To Make Money as an Influencer” course and have been working hard to implement what I’ve learned. It’s going to take me a while to put everything into practice (there was so much information!) But it’s already building my confidence to reach out to brands and giving me a clear plan to grow my Instagram.
Before taking the course, I was, honestly, sick of Instagram. I wanted to learn how to make money from it but wasn’t sure how to create the right bio, increase engagement, and get noticed by brands. Thankfully, it was all in the course. But before I get to what I’m doing now to increase Instagram engagement and make money, I want to talk about what I’m no longer doing first.
Tips to Monetize Your Instagram
Here are two things I’ve STOPPED doing since taking the course:
1.) I’ve realized I need to boost my blog/newsletter along WITH Instagram
Instagram is just one social media platform out of many. We also don’t own our content there. If Instagram shuts down tomorrow we’ll lose all our content and followers. That’s why it’s so important to create a blog and email list.
Having an e-mail list quadruples your value as an influencer – that’s because unlike Instagram, you OWN your email list. It’s like renting an apartment versus owning your home. No one can take that away from you. Trust has been built. For people to give you their email it’s an act of trust.
2.) I’ve stopped being so goal-driven.
As Elaine Rau says in her course, “Stop thinking about your destination and fall in love with the journey. Yes, it’s important to set goals and you will always have more goals to hit, but 99% of the time you’ll be in ‘process’ mode which is a constant state of learning, improving, and growing. If you’re goal-driven you’ll run out of steam…”
This really resonated with me. For years I was goal focused. When I didn’t hit certain numbers on my blog or Instagram I easily became frustrated. But when I started following my progress and growth – I became excited again. Bloggers and influencers have to keep learning to keep up with the changing social media platforms and we have to learn to enjoy that growing process.
And here now here are things I’m doing now to monetize my instagram because of the LadyBossBlogger Course.
1.) Being consistent.
Before the course, I’d just post when I felt like I had a good picture to share or a new blog post. There was no consistency. Elaine founder of LadyBossBlogger reminded me that I have to continue showing up to gain trust. People come on expecting to see something new from you.
I sort of knew this before taking the course but was tired of trying to come up with new content or create a beautiful feed. Thankfully the course gave me LOADS of tips on how to plan content to take the stress out of it. I’m now excited to post since it’s easier to plan content.
Also, she gave me so many tips on how to make my feed beautiful and it doesn’t necessarily involve having to take new pictures every single day or buy expensive presets.
Also, the Influencer Course includes a full content calendar of what to post for engagement. Talk about pressing the easy button.
I’m currently working on using her content calendar and creating my own from what I blog about. Once I have that in place it will be a lot easier to post more frequently, which we all know is important for engagement.
2.) Interacting with Brands
I had never heard this tip before. But as Elaine mentions in the course, “The more Instagram sees you interacting with bigger accounts and them interacting back, the better you’ll rank in the algorithm.” Such an easy to implement tip!
I actually tried the tip this week and I could tell it worked! I targeted five brands I hope to work with in the future and loved and commented on several of their posts. All of them responded which was great! Also, I noticed my own posts got a little more juice than they normally do.
How to get the course?
Guys, if you’re sick of wasting time trying to figure out how to grow Instagram or make $$$ then stop wasting time and invest a little in your blog. It’s already paid off for me and will save you so much time trying to hunt down information you don’t even know you need.
I’ll be honest, the course is on the pricier side, but you also won’t find this information on Pinterest or in a free e-Course. If like me, you’ve reached the end of your expertise, LadyBossBlogger’s courses can catapult your blog or Instagram to the next level and help you start making money.
