Instagram is the fastest growing network on the planet. With over 300 million monthly active users, the network is a major force to be reckoned with.
If you’re a business owner and not taking advantage of the power of Instagram, you need to get on board – ASAP!
There is a company that is doing a perfect job of using Instagram to marketing their business: InstaFamous. InstaFamous is an online blog / website that provides news and updates from around the web for what are known as “Instagram Celebrities”.
They have literally built their business using Instagram to drive millions of new user views a year. They were kind enough to show us their process.
They use a like and follow method to drive traffic. What this method entails is going through photos by one by (sorted by hashtags) and liking, commenting and following the users.
This drives attention back to their target profile. By using awesome call to actions they are able to drive millions of new clicks on their little blue link every year.
Here is a YouTube video that outlines the process:
We contacted our regular correspondent, Ryan Stewart, for a quote on the matter.
I think what they’re doing is awesome. As an SEO expert, I specialize in driving lazy traffic. In other words, I drive traffic when people are looking for it. This method uses a proactive approach – they are actively going after their target audience with disruptive tactics. When you do things this way, there is no end to what you can accomplish.
The ladies at InstaFamous were nice enough to share a screenshot of their analytics to help us with our case study. The traffic results are pretty staggering.
You can see the month over month growth that perfectly coincides with their increasingly aggressive strategy.
