5 Strategies to Drive Traffic From Instagram To Your Blog Posted on 06 Oct 16:35

Instagram is used by over 77 million people every single day, these are just the daily users. What about the people that check Instagram less frequently? There are over 300 million Instagram users every month. 330 MILLION! That is A LOT of opportunity in our opinion. So with that opportunity, how can we drive more traffic to our blog from Instagram?

1. Post An Eye-catching Photo That Ties Into Your Blog Post

Get in the habit of having your blog post icon be visually appealing enough for Instagram. This also allow you to share this photo via Pinterest, Facebook and other social media sites as well which will ultimately drive traffic. It's a simple extra step (or not if you take amazing photos already) that can make an impact on your blog traffic. 

2. Do You Have A Link In Your Profile?

It sounds like something so obvious, but often times we are so excited to get our Instagram page up and running that we completely forget about this essential. 

3. Use Creative Videos

Show the real side of your blog and business through videos. Share a blooper clip, a silly video compilation, day in the life or even a short teaser about your blog topic. Use videos to connect with your following and direct them to your blog for more. 

4. Share Exclusive Content On Your Blog

Posting a teaser image and directing them to the blog for the full, exclusive content is a great hook to get them over to the blog. Sharing exclusive promotions and giveaways will entice them to stick around.

5. Be Authentic

People connect best with people who are real and genuine. Share yourself and what you're all about, people will appreciate it and connect on a deeper level. When your audience likes you, they'll have no problem heading over to your blog for more.
