Charlotte, one of our clients, sent us this message a while ago:
“I’ve been trying to grow my Instagram following for the last few months but haven’t seen much improvement. I want to drive more traffic and sales to my store from Instagram and build brand awareness and engagement too, can you look at my account and tell me what I should do!? I feel like I’ve tried everything!”
Let’s make something clear.
Charlotte was a hard working entrepreneur who already knew Instagram pretty well. She’d spent the last several years growing her ecommerce business but hadn’t got the followers and sales she deserved from Instagram.
But she’s not alone in this..
How long have you tried to grow your Instagram following, traffic and ecommerce sales but fall short?
Even worse when you do get more followers only to find they are not engaged, don’t turn into traffic and bounce from your website without buying.
This means — whether you’re an entrepreneur, marketer or agency — you’re at risk of missing out on the sales that you desperately need … but there is hope.
The truth about Instagram growth for ecommerce
Let us know if this has ever happened to you.
You’re checking out your favourite blogs on Instagram marketing, reading case studies. Again and again you see examples of people with massive Instagram followings.
That’s when you think to yourself…
“How did THEY manage to get such a large following!?”
Even though they often don’t reveal the financial data in the case studies, you just KNOW that they’re converting sales for their business and increasing their profits.
And you think to yourself:
“How can I do that?”
That’s exactly why we’re writing to you today
You see, when someone creates a huge following on Instagram — and generates a steady stream of sales for their ecommerce business — there’s no magic or luck involved.
You may not be able to see it, but there’s almost always something behind the scenes that causes their account to grow and motivates their visitors to convert (and creates the landslide of sales that come along with it).
(In fact, there are actually three secrets to growing your Instagram account and ecommerce sales. We’ll reveal all three of them in a minute).
And that’s exactly what we are going to share with you today.
Before we get into that, we want to answer the question that might be rattling around in your head right now:
“How did you figure all this out?”
