WHY SHOULD I INVEST IN GROWING MY INSTAGRAM?

 

Whether you are a small business, freelancer, blogger or just trying to make a brand out of yourself, Instagram is where you need to be placing your primary marketing focus for 2017. With over 330 million users worldwide, Instagram can literally change your business or personal brand’s fortune overnight. 

There are the right ways and wrong ways to grow an Instagram account [Please read our blog on these specific points]. At Lunch Money, we can help you navigate the peaks and valleys. A few years back, it was important to spread your marketing efforts across a variety of social media platforms. In 2017, not so much. Now, it’s important to find the most active and most used social media platform that contains the largest cross-section of demographics. At some point, that will be SnapChat, but for now, that platform is Instagram.


WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE LUNCH MONEY TO GROW MY INSTAGRAM?

With over a year’s experience in exclusively growing Instagram accounts for our various clients, we’ve done the work (and the trial and error) to give your account the best chance at growing organically with the least amount of hurdles. After having clients in every industry from travel, sports, fashion and retail, we understand the methodology in reaching your target audience effectively. After we have you fill out our social media questionnaire, we will tackle the questions your brand seeks to answer by devising a comprehensive Instagram strategy that will build over time. With extensive research that goes into discovering your competition on Instagram to developing relevant hashtags, we’ve got your covered.


WHAT ARE HASHTAGS AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?

Think of hashtags as tickets to a convention. Each hashtag represents a ticket to get you in front of the type of audience you desire. There are right ways and wrong ways to use hashtags. At Lunch Money, we’re able to distinguish between these two usages. For example, if you were a fashion blogger in San Francisco and you were using #fashion in your posts, that hashtag is so overused that you would either never get your post seen OR be seen by such random people that you would never care to target. However, if you were to use #sfstyle, chances are you would be in a much smaller community, but in a much better niche for your business. Make sense?


WHAT IS ORGANIC FOLLOWER GROWTH (A.K.A. ENGAGEMENT GROWTH) AND WHY IS
IT IMPORTANT FOR MY INSTAGRAM?

Organic Follower Growth is your personal effort to reach out to other Instagram accounts that might be an ideal customer for your business. There are many Instagram Growth companies out there with low monthly premiums that attempt to simulate this growth by the use of bots. These bots will either follow and then unfollow a bunch of random accounts in hopes that they will follow you back, but there is no strategy behind who these bots target. Sometimes, these bots will randomly like 5-10 photos on someone’s Instagram account, on your behalf, in hopes that the overwhelming "Insta love" will cause them to follow you. Again, no methodology or thought behind this. 

At Lunch Money, you'll always have a human being who thoroughly understands your brand behind the engagement made on your behalf. We create an ideal customer profile for your brand and systematically target your competitors on Instagram. We then begin liking and commenting on your competitor’s followers that meet our stringent criteria. This way, you get a healthy dose of engagement back from those people who meet your target customer profile. This not only boosts the chances they will follow you back, but also that they will later convert to a loyal customer.


CAN YOU GUYS MANAGE MY OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS?

We do manage Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, but only for Insta Deluxe clients.


DO YOU GUYS KEEP UP WITH THE TRENDS OF INSTAGRAM?

Yes! We are very aware of the progression of the Instagram algorithm and usually learn within 24 hours when an update is occurring or about to occur. This is all relayed to you at the end of the month when we build your monthly analytics report and describe its contents to you, in detail.


CAN YOU CREATE ORIGINAL CONTENT
