👉Just this month at an event I attended, Briana Dai from eWomen Network spelled out the nine top tips for INFLUENCE. 🔥 She brought so much value to this word and what it represents to online business. Briana is a digital marketer, speaker, author, and podcast host.
I just loved the 9 tips she shared with a little bit of sales brand flavor. What is Sales Brand you ask?? More to come in the next few weeks! 😉
I - inspire This is the #1 thing you need to focus on Insta 📱
What are the things that inspire you? Why do I follow the people that I follow? They inspire me to be a better business person and they're visually inspiring. Create content that inspires - what would inspire your customer? If you are not the avatar of your people, then really study your people.
N - niche 👩💻 👀
You have to really know your niche! Instagram is a visual platform, what images connect with your audience? We put a lot of time and money into our imagery, it should be the forefront of everything you're doing on insta. First grab their attention with graphic, then two lines to hook them in. 🤯
F- facilitate collaborations 🤝
No one is making it alone on insta! We are all trying to grow on Instagram - find complementary services to your biz - introduce each other to each other’s insta audiences.
✅ Host a give away with your referral partner- that complements your partner
✅ Do a shout out
✅ Do takeovers- you can take over each others accounts for a day - run your story for a day
L - Listen to your audience 😍
Just ask them what they want - here are some suggestions:
Why do you like my account?
Why do you like following us?
Would you rather I create a download on this or on that - give people permission to give advice
U - utilize trends and hashtags 💻
Pay attention to these things ahead of time. Success is scheduled!
What are the social media holidays for 2020? Which ones do you want to have a seat at the table in advance?
Think about a free download that aligns with the day.
E- Engage your followers 🖐
Just because a feature is there doesn’t mean it's good for you. It's about keeping and building a relationship as much as growing it. Have genuine interactions and conversations with people and become online friends.
If your followers are the only ones to reach out, comment, and they don't get that reciprocation they will eventually go away. Be the person to reach out! ⌨️
N - noticeable style and aesthetic 💥
Visuals are king on Instagram- you have 140 characters to show who you are and then all they see are tiles of your profile. You see those 12 tiles and without reading a word you can see what this page is about.
👉Aesthetic test- someone scrolls past your tile and they don't even have to see it's you that posted it, they just know it's you by the aesthetic.🌟👏
C- consistency 🕒
Influence does not happen by accident - everything is scheduled and mapped out. Ideally you are two weeks ahead, and everything is planned. 🤩
E - Embrace your flaws 🏆
You are the only thing between others seeing your gift and sharing your extraordinary YOU with the world! 🌏
