Why do we feel confident that Instagram will give you the traffic you are looking for in your business?
It is because of the leadership of Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook.com). You see, Instagram was created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, and launched in October 2010. Its app distributed through Apple App Store, Google Play, and Windows Phone Store. The services gained popularity in which it reached over 100 million users in April 2012. When Facebook acquired Instagram for U$1 Billion in cash and stock in April 2012, Instagram grew rapidly in which it reached more than 300 million users in less than two years.
The question is... "What was the original vision of Instagram?" Well, the original vision was to become the number one online mobile-photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr. Basically, Instagram's vision was to grow its business in which it attracts different users across all social networking sites. This is how they were able to build more than 100 million users on their owns. However, as Facebook acquired Instagram, it became the #1 app people use to share their photos across the big four social networking sites. HOW? Instagram users are able to post the same picture they publish to Facebook Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr with just one click. How will this help you with your business? It is very simple, really.
Here is an example:
• You have 1,000 Facebook fans.
• You have 1,000 Twitter followers.
• You have 1,000 Tumblr followers.
• You have 1,000 Flickr followers.
• You have 1,000 Instagram followers.
What will happen is... When you post a picture with few words on Instagram, instead of reaching out only to 1,000 Instagram followers, you can share the picture on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr with just four simple clicks. That will simply quadruple the number of audience you reach with just four clicks. -- Yep, it takes less than five seconds. That's the power of Instagram. Of course, there are other functionalities in which we are going to discuss further in this book. For now, you just need to understand the power of Instagram. Basically, everything is just one gram away. :-)
"What if you want to use Instagram to build your business?"
This is where we come in. However, it wasn't an easy route to discover the right way to do it. WHY? One of the reasons was really because people did not get used to the Instagram especially Instagram does look like Facebook, but it doesn't function like Facebook. In fact, when you look at...
It looks a little similar like Facebook, but it doesn't have the functionality like Facebook does. This pretty much makes a lot of new users feel that there is no reason to utilize Instagram to attract customers for their business. Well, this is exactly what you are going to learn on the Instagram Automator. Of course, after you are able to create your own traffic system with our guidance, you can always teach others how to do the same thing.
Further, you can even charge your clients, real estate agents, insurance companies, dental offices between $500 and $1,000 per month for maintaining their Instagram account. What it means is... "The sky is your limit." You just have to master the skills you are going to learn on this course.
Chapter I: What is Instagram?
The first question is... "What is Instagram?" Instagram was co-founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. During the early stage, in San Francisco, CA, began the development of Instagram. The name "Instagram" is a portmanteau of "Instant Camera" and "telegram". Instead of bored you with the *history* of Instagram, let's talk about the Key Event on Instagram History:
• March 5, 2010: Systrom received $500,000 funding.
• December, 2010: Instagram has 1 million registered users.

• December 2014: Instagram has 300 million users.
Chapter II: Why Instagram?
The second question is... "Why Instagram?" Let me show you an eye opening fact about Instagram and why it will be beneficial for your business. Here is the latest data on Instagram: (We are confident that it will grow faster than our words)
If you are a savvy marketer especially when you value the important of having a list, Instagram has one of the biggest mailing list on the planet aside from Facebook and Twitter. It means that by tapping into Instagram network as part of growing your business, you are indirectly tapping to one of the biggest countries in the entire planet. The question is NOT whether you should tap into it or not, but it is more into how you can attract massive traffic to your website. Well, as you progress through each step on this course, you will be able to see through what it takes to build your business around Twitter.
Chapter III: Instagram Page
Instagram is focusing on photos-sharing and 10 seconds videos-sharing. It means that you or your company can post any activities occur in a real-time in the form of images or videos. It allows you to connect with your customers, develop your brand, and engage with your followers with a visual story. Why does business need to use Instagram? 1. Easier to grow followers compare to Facebook. 2. Less marketers are tapping into Instagram as they are way too busy with Facebook. -- HINT: Facebook owns Instagram. After Facebook owns Instagram in 2012, the number of Instagram user increased from 100 million to 300 million users. 3. Organic free traffic. -- As Instagram has not yet introduced its advertising platform, all the traffic is FREE. 4. You will reach all your followers. -- With Facebook, you will reach ONLY a portion of your audience with organic search. With Instagram, you will reach out to ALL your followers. This will help you maximize your exposure. 5. You will receive much higher engagement than any other social networking sites especially Facebook. -- HINT: From a recent study, it shows that Instagram has a THREE TIMES more engagements than Facebook. Again, everything is depending on your focus. As Instagram focuses on visual expression, it will help you to brand your business. Let me share with you some examples: A. If you are an Internet marketer, you can use photos to represent your lifestyle, your picture with other marketers, the screenshot of your results, or the picture of you standing on the stage. B. If you are a clothing company, you can use photos as a way to show all great looking clothes, skirts, pants, and much more. C. If you are a weight loss consultant, show before and after photos of your clients. D. If you are a chiropractor, show pictures of you giving treatment to your clients. E. If you are a restaurant owner, show pictures of your foods. Of course, take pictures of your happy customers. In other words, your Instagram website could look like this..
@dunkindonuts 246,000 Followers
@gucci (Clothing Store) 3.1 Million Followers
@tigerwoods (Celebrity) 150k Followers
As you understand the power of Instagram for your business, on the next chapter, you are going to learn how to set-up your Instagram account correctly. This allows you to start getting traffic to your website as soon as possible.
Chapter IV: Seven Simple Steps to Exploit Instagram Marketing
As you are ready to exploit the power of branding your business and attract massive traffic to your website, let's create your business on Instagram in the shortest time possible. Here are seven simple steps to exploit Instagram Marketing:
Step #1: Pick up your profitable niche.
Step #2: Download and Install Instagram Mobile App. Step
#3: Creating Your Instagram Account.
Step #4: Customize Your Instagram Account.
Step #5: Understanding APP on Instagram.
Step #6: Post Photos and Videos on Instagram.
Step #7: Getting Followers to Your Instagram Account.
Let's talk about each step carefully, shall we?
Step #1: Pick up your profitable niche.
There are "three" ways to do research: 1) Use Google Keyword Planner at: https://adwords.google.com/ko/KeywordPlanner
Look into the number of searches per month. If the number of searches per month is a little over 100,000, it does show that weight loss is on high demand.
2) Find out if there are advertisers on the products or services you are trying to sell.
3) Be very specific on your search.
There is a difference between attracting freebie seekers and potential buyers. If you focus on *Weight Loss*, there is a chance that people are just looking around. When you focus on *Weight Loss Consultant*, those people who go to your website will fall into two categories: (A) Potential clients; (B) Potential Weight Loss Consultant;
Once you have chosen the profitable niche you would like to focus with, you can then proceed to Step #2. The question is... What if you are an affiliate marketer or marketers who focus on selling information products? Well, if that is the case, how do you know which product is profitable?
Here is the *Four* steps process: (A) Head to http://www.clickbank.com and search for "Marketplace".
B) Search for the highest gravity product on Clickbank.com.
Why is gravity important? It will indicate the sales conversion of the product. For example: If you are sending 100 clicks to the affiliate product, gravity is the indication on how many sales you are going to receive.
C) Focus on how much money you are going to get.
There are "two" key formulas you need to be aware of:
Formula #1: How much money are you going to get on each sale?
• Product A paid 75% commission at the price of $10. It is equal to $7.50 cash per sale) • • Product B paid 50% commission at the price of $20. It is equal to $10 cash per sale)
Formula #2: How many sales are you going for every 100 visitors you send to an affiliate site?
• Product A paid $7.50 per sale. It has a conversion of 5 sales for every 100 visitors you spend. That is a profit of $37.50.
• Product B paid $10 per sale. It has a conversion of 2 sales for every 100 visitors you spend. That is a profit of $20. Without these two components as the gauge, you may think that Product B will give you more cash for your business. In reality, you need to use the formulas above as a way to measure how much money you are going to receive from selling affiliate products.
D) Look for re-bill as a way to earn residual cash.
Re-bill is the key for you to make monthly cash without the need to keep promoting products after products. This is the reason why it is important for you to have both residual income and non-residual income type of products to maximize your cash flow.
Step #2: Download and Install Instagram Mobile App.
Once you have chosen your profitable niche, your next step is to install your Instagram account with your phone. All you need to do is going to http://Instagram.com -- Of course, you can always get it from Google Store for Androids or iTunes for iPhone users. First, look at your computer screen especially if you are using "Android". Click on "Google Play Store" (NOTE: If you are not using Androids, you can always go to http://instagram.com to install your Instagram app.
Then, search for Instagram.
Step #3: Creating Your Instagram Account.
Once you have installed your Instagram account, your next step is creating your Instagram account the right way. Why is this important? Well, if you are NOT careful, you will end up making a lot of mistakes. What kind of mistakes? Well, the majority of the users will connect their Instagram account with Facebook or Invite their friends. I am not saying that it is a bad thing, but it is important to grow your followers first before you involve your audience on different medium. This allows you to have a head start compare to other Instagram users. As you are ready, here are the steps you need to take:
Then, sign-up with your business email account instead of your Facebook account.
Choose "Not Now" on adding your friends from Facebook. -- Hint: You will learn how to get followers on the later steps. :-)
Choose "Not Now" on following your contacts on Instagram. -- Hint: You will learn these steps later on. :-)
Step #4: Customize Your Instagram Page.
Click on the "human" icon to go to your profile.
Once you do, click on "edit your profile".
Click on "picture" to add your picture or the logo of your company. -- NOTE: If you are branding yourself, it is important to add your own picture.
Step #5: Understanding APP on Instagram.
Step #6: Post Photos and Videos on Instagram.
How do you do it? Well, it is easy. Just press take a "photo" tab and you are on camera. :-)
and you are on camera. :-)
All you need to do is clicking on...
However, if you are a camera "shy" person, you can always click on
to choose pictures from your computer. On the other hand, if you would like to take your 10 second video, simply click on...
It is really that simple. :-) However, here are "two" simple tips you need to follow on creating powerful posts on Instagram: 1. Always smile. -- It doesn't matter if you have a good day or bad day, it is important to always show your best pictures to your audience. 2. Always focus on the end result you want your audience to have. -- That's the key to everything. So, you should NEVER take any random pictures. Instead, you need to focus on creating a purpose and the reason why people need to go to your website.
Step #7: Getting Followers to Your Instagram Account.
Unlike other social networking sites, it is easy to find followers for your business. When you do it correctly, you are able to get followers faster than ever. In fact, here are "THREE" simple steps you need to focus on: 1. Focus on ONLY following users who are in your niche. 2. Focus on engaging with other Instagram users in your niche. 3. Un-follow users who don't follow you back. As you are ready, let's get some followers. :-)
When you do, the system will automatically will come out with posts that has that keyword. So, it will look like this...
Another way to follow others would be to follow the followers of the Instagram users you follow. Here is exactly how you do it:
Click on "Following" and you will see all the activities of the people you followed.
Click on one of the Instagram users you followed. Click on "followers". You will be able to see people who are interested in following others.
If you want to go deep, you can even follow the followers of the followers. You can follow up to 7500 people and a percentage of them will follow you back. Here is how you do it: Click on the name of the followers.
Then, you will be able to see the profile as well as the number of people who follow the user.
My point is... The key is the limit on the number of people you can follow. However, it is important that you only follow up to 50 Instagram users per hour depending on your account. One last important tip you need to remember, ok? Every single month, you need to "un-follow" users who don't follow you back. You can use a app in the app store called Followers + to find the users not following you back. This allows you to build an audience who are truly interested in what you have to say. That's all you have to do. :-)
Instagram is one of the powerful medium you can use to build your business on the Internet. Some people say that Instagram may replace Facebook or even Twitter. In reality, Both Instagram and Facebook are belong to Mark Zuckerberg. Instead of comparing whether Facebook or Twitter are the better medium for your advertising method, you should really focus on Both. Why? Twitter has a separate audience then Facebook. It means that your chances on getting new leads for your business are HIGHER when you focus on both grounds. As I said, Twitter has been spending hundreds of millions of dollars to expand its business. I am confident that they will continue to do so to stay competitive as the TOP five social networking sites in the world. In turn, it will help you bring a lot of traffic to your website. Below is a training video I did for my private coaching students How to Automate your Instagram Account. As you are ready to get massive traffic to your business, go ahead and review this course again. We are looking forward to serving you in the years to come.
