OMG THE INSTAGRAM ALGORITHM IS KILLING ME.
THEY ARE HIDING LIKES.
NO ONE WILL EVER FOLLOW ME AGAIN.
Okay, I’m exaggerating a tad, but I’m a social media marketing manager by trade. I help a lot of small business owners with their social marketing, and I have gotten a lot of panicked messages about Instagram lately. Personally, it’s my favorite platform and I talk about it a lot on my Facebook page (ironic, I know).
A lot of people have been telling me that they are struggling to grow their following, get authentic engagement, and find a way to use Instagram to actually drive traffic to their blog/site/store/podcast whatever. Thankfully, I haven’t had those issues. In fact, I’ve seen substantial growth in all metrics over the past few months by using Tailwind.
Plus, I’ve been able to earn more money and get more traffic from my IG bio by utilizing their new free tool, Smart.Bio! Yup, no more remembering (or forgetting!) to change the link in your bio or driving people to one spot and losing out on valuable affiliate income or blog views. More info on this sweet new tool below!
Of course, these are my personal results, but Tailwind also publishes the Typical Results of Tailwind for Pinterest/Instagram Members every year, so you can see exactly what the average growth rate looks like for their members here.
Great, new followers. But NOW what Do we do with them?!
The growth in followers, likes, comments, and posts (thanks to the Tailwind scheduling and hashtag finder!) is all super nice, but they’re just numbers. Personally, I love using my IG profile to connect with others with Chronic Illness and raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. I love our online community!
But we all need to make a living, and my clients #1 question to me is always how do we get our followers to connect with us off of Instagram?
Can we use Instagram to drive sales?
Thanks to my favorite new Tailwind tool, it’s easier to drive traffic to your website than ever! Their free Smart.Bio allows you to create a branded landing page and a never-ending stream of traffic from your Instagram bio to your most important content!
Like I mentioned above, Smart.Bio has made my job a lot easier (SWEET). Now I can track and measure real results with every click, and link directly to the products I love and recommend frequently.
Plus, the Smart.Bio tool is AMAZING for marketers (or bloggers and influencers) and has nearly doubled my affiliate income (of course, results aren’t guaranteed) and click-throughs via my IG profile link.
Furthermore, Tailwind is an official Instagram Partner, so you know it’s safe. Smart.bio as a completely free tool for anyone to use, though it does work best with a Tailwind for Instagram Plus Plan, which is what I have and recommend to anyone looking to improve their presence on Instagram or Pinterest.
I love that I can customize my landing page in my own brand colors and easily add links to posts without messing up my post captions!
TIP: Set a custom call to action (CTA) on each Smart.Bio post to help your visitors quickly find exactly what they’re looking for.
