What I’ve learn on Instagram from Nathan Chan
Updated on January 5th, 2020
I’ve been dabbling in Instagram for a few years but when Nathan Chan‘s free training was released last week, I decided to commit.
You know what’s happened?
I’ve overcome the ‘barriers’, I’m loving posting images and quotes, and I’m seeing more followers, and MORE email subscribers.
It’s not just me either.
Fellow Bluewire News reader Andrew Sparks from Sparks Elite sent me this email today.
I’ve read that Instagram is becoming the fastest growing channel for smart marketers to get more traffic & more leads. When I saw the stats, the first thing that came to mind was “whatever..”
MySpace, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Digg, Reddit, YouTube, Instagram, WhatsApp, SnapChat…
Over the years… It’s been hard to keep up sometimes, right?
Some of these things go on to dominate like Facebook and Twitter. Others do “OK”, and others just vanish into oblivion… Personally, I tend not to get excited until things are proven…
So I sat down to talk to Nathan Chan, the owner of Foundr Magazine about what he thought of Instagram as business strategy.
Well it turns out speaking with Nathan he is crushing it with Instagram as a way to growing his followers base fast, getting thousands of leads per week and consistent sales.
In fact, Nathan told me that the secret to his success was that he was able to take advantage of Instagram to go from 0 to 500,000 followers in just 12 months!!!
I asked Nathan Chan lots of questions about Instagram
I interviewed him on episode 116 of our podcast and I’ve spent time on the phone asking him stuff I wanted to know.
For example, I never knew how to re-post an image that I like — after all there is no “re-post” button, but I saw it happen all the time. Nathan told me to screenshot the image and post it (with attribution of course). The screenshot gets cropped perfectly inside Instagram — I never knew this — and it’s so simple now that I know!
I kinda knew to include hashtags in the first comment so I could increase visibility, but I never knew which ones. Thanks to Nathan’s free training, I now swear by TagsForLikes.com to work out the most popular hashtags to get more people to see your posts.
It’s all such good stuff.
You know what ..!? It is converting and our email list is growing because of Instagram. This is where the real value lies!
Plus I’ve been posting a combination of marketing quotes, email screenshots, work photos (mainly of me at speaking engagements) and some holiday/family pics. Using Nathan’s techniques I am getting 20-30 followers per day, 50-100 likes per post and people are starting to convert into email subscribers, which is great!
This is the last few days on my @Adam_Franklin Instagram account.
Anyway Nathan has agreed to do a webinar on this for you and fellow Bluewire News readers on how they can get more followers, leads and sales with Instagram?
