Post on Instagram from computer! No phone needed!

It’s not possible!” She swore to me I needed a phone to post to my Instagram account.

How Instagram can make you money!

I wanted to go over why I love Instagram.  I want you to understand why this post is important for your business!  You know I love to give you the best, most complete information, so let’s go over Instagram for business!

Followers to read your content

Oh, yes, the ever-illusive “followers.”  We all want them!  We write content, we post pictures, and we want an audience to view them, right?  That’s great, but how can followers equate to dollars and cents?  I’ll tell you!

When you write content and promote products and services on your website, you blast that content out on your social media!  Your hope is to attract visitors or “traffic” to your article!  If you have a lot of followers on your social media, you will have a better reach and more people clicking your links and following over to your website!

The more traffic to your article, the more clicks on your affiliate links, and the more money you will make!  It only stands to reason that you will benefit from having more followers!

Engage with the Influencers

I know that you’ve heard of “Influencers.”  These are the people in your niche who have thousands and thousands of followers.  You will get there yourself, but until you do, you can leverage their fame to your benefit!

Here’s how it works.  You got to the profile page of an influencer, and if they have their email address showing, that tells you they are in the game.  They are willing to display your content on their feed to their followers for a fee.  Fees vary by person and number of followers, etc.  You can pay these people for the opportunity to get in front of their followers.

These are influencers.  However, did you notice the one thing missing?  Their email address!  Unless their email address is showing on their profile, you won’t be able to hire them to post your content to their thousands and thousands of followers!

This takes some research, but it’s well worth it when you do.

See who they follow

You’ll notice that these influencers only follow a handful of people themselves.  You will want to go to go see who they follow and choose the ones in your niche that you will want to follow as well.
