How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?

Instagram is a peoples social media site where people express themselves by using high quality photos. It's not like Facebook or Twitter in that you can post virtually everything you want such as your websites blog posts and pages, products etc. You can't create posts with links to where that image is such as a blog post. You can use #hashtags if you want though which can be useful but although Google can and does index your profile it can't index your images.

If you're a fashionista, designer or label, or a foodie, or restaurateur you can post pictures of the latest clothing and fashionable items or photos of the meals you cook. Or if you're a traveler you can post photos of waterfalls and elephants and things and that's good. They love that sort of thing on Instagram!

But if you're an SEO / freelancer where your business doesn't involve any images in any way other really as you're doing SEO work. What sort of things can you post to your Instagram profile for people to like? As an SEO or Freelancer, what would be good to post to Instagram that other people using Instagram might like?

I figure that a lot of people on Instagram probably would buy things like Instagram followers and likes and even followers/likes etc for their other social profiles too. And it's feasible many Instagram users are bloggers or webmasters so may need SEO or website marketing / traffic etc. But you can't really take a picture of SEO or Internet marketing in action like you can a beautiful waterfall or of a delicious cooked meal ya know!?

I've been thinking of things I could post that were eye catchy and that. But as an SEO / freelancer, they would have to be text images made using Canva or something with text written on them. But honestly, how appealing can you make "BUY 50000 INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS"? And why would people want to follow someone that just posts boring things like they no matter how nice they looked?

People want to see amazing, stunning, high quality REAL photos of people and all the things that the cool kids and users of Instagram post. They don't really want to see you posting about "Buy SoundCloud Views" etc in their timeline. So it's a real problem!

I have/had several IG profiles and mostly they have been in a nice that is much easier to post things too. But I've created an IG to help promote my SEOClerks affiliate site and wondering what things would be best to post that I could always have an endless supply of to actually post! I guess I could post nice images of things that people can buy with their money like gold watches, tech, cars, clothes etc etc and posts screenshots of earnings and things like that. That could be cool. The sorts of things a professional and successful freelancer / affiliate might purchase with his earnings. In and amongst the obvious image ads created in Canva or something.

So far all I have right now is an infographic split into 12 different tiles.

You can see what I mean on my Insta https://www.instagram.com/seoclerk/

I guess I could do that for other infographics/graphics I have and make just for it as you can play around with that and have some fun and do some really clever things with it.

Do you use IG to promote SEOClerks services as an affiliate?

Have you had any success selling SEO, SMO services etc on IG?

What are some ways to go about promoting SEOClerks services on IG?

I know there's gold in there just got to find a way of tapping into it!

Cheers!

Mike.

You're missing a huge part of the traffic you can pull from Instagram How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram? How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram? How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?

If you add tags to your image you can get a load of traffic if your image gets rated as the "Top Image". This is because Instagram will rank the most popular image at the time for the tag you have in the description. I've had images get 100+ likes just from hitting the top images spot and every time my image hits, I get at least 1 new client How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram? Adding tags isn't difficult, you're just using hash tags plus keywords in your description. I've noticed that a line of text and then a bunch of hash tags plus keywords are best because you give users a little bit of info so they know what you're about. You can even throw your URL in there right above the hash tags for even more traffic How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?


Ok, so here's what you do.

  • Find a cool looking image, make sure it has a sweet graphic or text on it.
  • If you can't find something you really like, go on your computer and "borrow" a non branded image from a competitor and brand it yourself lol How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?
  • Post your image and add a your line of text to it. The text just needs to be short and sweet. Give them a taste of your page so they click through How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?
  • Add your URL under the text
  • Add your hash tags to the post so that you pop up in the search results for specific keywords. I like to mix difficult keywords and easy to rank keywords in there so that I can get a flood of likes from the easy keywords and that should be enough to rank me for the difficult ones. Once you're ranked for the difficult ones you'll see a spike in likes How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?

Cheers Raz! You always give me something I can actually work with and do something with. I really admire and respect and appreciate you for that! So as you know right now all I have is 12 tiled images on my Insta but at some point I'm going to have to actually start posting stuff as well. I've noticed you can put quite a lot of text in an insta post, including hashtags as well. You can't put URLs though in insta posts though Raz. Well you can, but they're not hyperlinked. I guess you could put your domain name though if it's short 'n sweet is that what you do?

For images, I've got the Canva app on my phone. This gives me unlimited images I can edit on the fly, save to my phone and then upload to Insta. There's a wide range of pre-made images to choose from that you can easily change the text of and use. For example (Screenshot of the Canva app Instagram pictures)

And as an example I'm just taking one of those images, editing a little to this..

But of course, you can get really creative and put other words as well but that's basically one thing I can do when it comes to finding images to upload to my Insta. I'm thinking about giving it a good go anyway and seeing what I can make of it on this side as I suspect there has been other Internet marketers and SEO's etc out there that have often wondered how they can use Instagram for these reasons and to promote, advertise and sell those sorts of services. At the end of the day I just see it as a social media page like any other in that it helps you to build brand awareness and increases your seach engine and social media presence online as well.

That is basically the main idea behind it anyway! How to Promote SEOClerks SEO and SMO Services on Instagram?

Thanks Mike and Razzy. I have not joined Instagram yet because I just haven't had the time.

I didn't know you couldn't add links to posts though, so how does someone find your website? Is this through your profile?
