I could probably rant all day about Instagram’s algorithm and we may all be used to it but, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still grow our blog. Here are 3 ways you can drive traffic to your blog with Instagram!
Join blogging groups
I’ve joined so many blogging groups so then I could promote my blog and support others. My favourite groups are blogging comment groups because the rule is to read and comment on everyone’s posts they’ve shared. This has consistently helped me to gain views and engagement on posts.
Utilise your story
I know, I know, it is annoying that only accounts with 10k have the swipe up feature. However, you can promote your posts by adding screenshots of it straight after it has been posted. Then promote it another 2 times after a couple of hours, just in case someone has missed it. Also, do #throwbackthursday to promote your older posts and gain more traffic (by the way, it doesn’t have to be only on Thursday, haha).
Be interactive on your Insta posts
When you post a picture: ask questions, make your blog post sound interesting and ask others to share your post if they found it useful or liked it (don’t be too excessive on this one as some may find it annoying). Commenting on other accounts that you will read their post, and actually read it, will make them want to check out your blog. Spread kindness and it will come back to you.
So I hope you all found this blog post useful. What is your favourite way to grow your blog through Instagram?? Comment below as I’d love to know!
