5 Cool Ways to  Sell More on Instagram

1. Create Shoppable Content:

Statistics show that 72% of customers say seeing Instagram photos of a product increases their chances of buying and 38% of customers say they frequently purchase products they find on Instagram.

 A shoppable Instagram gallery is a parallel site you can link to your Instagram bio. This link directs customers to an abridged version of your Instagram storefront where they can make a purchase.

2. Build and Share User Generated Content

 User generated content like product reviews boost customer confidence. This seems more authentic and lessens risks of online purchase.

 Positive feedback from peer reviewed product purchases convinces consumers that they’ll also have similar good experiences, especially since the reviewers are hypothetically unbiased.

3. Post Customer Testimonials

 Social proof strengthens buyer confidence, which in turn boosts sales. Smart marketers blend product reviews and customer testimonials into a powerful IG sales strategy. Post videos or photos showing happy customers displaying or using your product, along with a quote about why they love it.

 People buy benefits, not products or services. If satisfaction is guaranteed by 5 star ratings and smiling faces, shoppers are more likely to pay to buy into such experiences. That's one smart way to hack Instagram

4. Partner with Influencers

 Nearly everyone has influence over at least one person. If you can influence John who can influence 10,000 others, good for you. Now imagine John mentions your brand with the right hash tag to his 10,000 followers.

 Usually, when people see another friend post about a brand on Instagram, it increases awareness, curiosity and interest: key stages of the buying process. For someone with even more influence or popularity, such mention or recommendation can literally spark a frenzy from friends, fans and followers.

 There are IG accounts with millions of fans and followers that can help you reach tons of potential customers who are in your target audience and interested in exactly the type of product and experiences you offer.

5. Make Personal Connection with Your Customers

Know their names or something personally important to them. Consumers nowadays crave personal connection with brands they trust. Instagram not only offers the opportunity for product awareness, it also gives room for connection with customers. Deep level engagement is key, and brands with this personal touch excel.

 Consider using your images to give customers limited behind-the-scenes sneak peak of upcoming products and ask their opinions. This way, you make customers feel valued, special, invited, involved with and connected to your brand.

Conclusion

Daily, people discover new products from their favorite brands on Instagram, yours could be next.
Whether you choose one or all 5 tips, Instagram makes you connect deeply and authentically with your customers visually. Exploit that.

There are many other ways to hack Instagram, but the ability to implement methods consistently makes all the difference.
