Howdy ladies and gents! Wowie, well you guys all seemed to love my last post about how to get more reads/exposure for your stories so I thought seeing as I’m clearly on a roll, why not do a follow up post? Fyi, this is gonna be a hella long post so I’d get some snacks, beverages and get comfy if I were you.
I haven’t heard anyone else talk about this in regards to Instagram, but from my experience of taking over Episode Life and starting a Instagram page for it, what I’ve found the biggest thing for gaining followers is asking what they would want to see. It seems super simple, but honestly when I started the page I went straight onto stories and asked what you guys wanted from this website and then I fulfilled your answers. So loads of you were saying you wanted to have story promotions that weren’t just for those with loads of reads which is where Top 5 Stories Under came from and that has seriously boosted both Instagram performance and this website. So just by asking what your audience wants and then giving it to them is one of the most powerful things.
Most importantly, have fun with it! Yeah it’s a job but it’s also so creative and it’s YOURS! No one is governing what you do with your feed, you are the boss! So let your creative juices flow free and go wild!
