Are you ready to finally start making money from your Instagram account?
You may have already trawled through the internet looking for advice or even taken a course about Instagram, but I hope to add a new perspective on what it takes to create an Instagram that makes you sales.
Many people believe you first need to grow a huge following before you can start to sell but that may be holding you back.
If you’re struggling with making constant content for your Instagram but seeing little or no results, this is the place for you.
Ready to dive into a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into an instagram account that makes you money?
Always Remember to push through the comparison trap.
If you’ve been finding yourself saying “I’ll never be able to make my business work” or “it’s impossible to make money on Instagram”, you may want to challenge these thoughts.
Ask yourself, why do I think Instagram is so hard and who benefits from me thinking this way?
Let’s get real, these thoughts often sneak in fueled by fear, self-doubt, or societal pressures. But, you know what? It’s time to debunk those myths and realize that Instagram, when tackled with a bit of strategy, is a game-changer for business success. So, why not flip the script? Challenge these negative narratives, take back the reins of your entrepreneurial journey, and recognize that behind every triumphant Instagram tale lies conscious effort, authenticity, and a mindset ready for a glow-up. You’ve got the power to rewrite your story and unveil the opportunities that Instagram holds for your business.
My Routine for Instagram sales
I am happy to say that I have achieved a consistent flow of inquiries and sales from Instagram, and my routine directly influences my ability to succeed.
A day in my life looks a little like this:
- Morning: I get up, get my kids breakfast, get myself some coffee, post an Instagram story, post a carousel or reel & respond to DMs and comments
- Noon: I eat lunch and post another story or two.
- Evening: post one more story for the day
Let’s break each of these down more:
Every morning is a hustle, but a purposeful one. As the sun rises, I kickstart my day by not only nourishing my kids with a hearty breakfast but also fueling myself with a cup of strong coffee. The Instagram world is my first stop. I kick off the day by sharing an authentic story, pulling back the curtain on the daily grind of my business—this isn’t just about showcasing, it’s about building credibility. The first story sets the tone for the day, offering followers a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes of my entrepreneurial journey, proving that I walk the talk. Oh, and here’s a golden rule: at least half of my posts dive into how I can help others or spotlight what I bring to the table. It’s not just about me; it’s about how we can grow together.
As the clock strikes noon, it’s not just lunchtime; it’s a prime moment to seize the attention of my audience. While savoring a bite, I’m crafting stories that strategically lead my followers to take action. These aren’t just any stories—they’re the bridge between a casual scroll and a decisive choice. Whether it’s an invitation to book a call, an irresistible product offer, or a service that’s hard to resist, the stories at noon are the driving force behind conversions. Each tap or swipe is a step toward a potential client, making lunchtime a powerful moment in my daily Instagram strategy.
As the day winds down, I wrap it up with one last Instagram story, and this one has a touch of the personal. It’s a moment of vulnerability, a glimpse into what makes me human beyond the business realm. This story isn’t about pitches or services; it’s about sharing a slice of my life—something that happened that day, a personal achievement, or just a real, unfiltered moment. This touch of authenticity humanizes the brand, fostering a deeper connection with followers. It’s the evening finale, an opportunity to show that behind the entrepreneur is a real person with relatable experiences. And just like that, the day on Instagram comes full circle, leaving a lasting impression on those who choose to be part of the journey
So, you might be wondering, how exactly does this daily routine serve as the secret sauce to propel your business forward? Well, it’s all about strategic consistency. By weaving your business activities seamlessly into your daily rhythm, you’re not just posting content—you’re crafting a narrative, a story that unfolds in real-time. Putting yourself out there on Instagram isn’t just a suggestion; it’s the very essence of building a thriving community around your brand. When you embrace this routine, you’re not just creating content for the sake of it; you’re building credibility with your morning stories, seamlessly linking your audience to your offerings during lunch, and humanizing your brand with personal touches in the evening.
The call to “Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there on Instagram” isn’t just a nudge; it’s a rallying cry for authenticity. Instagram, at its core, is a platform built on connection. When you share the highs and lows of your entrepreneurial journey, you’re not just broadcasting a polished image; you’re inviting your audience into your world. The worst that can happen? Well, let’s be honest—probably nothing changes. But here’s the exciting part: if you stick with this routine, embracing each story as a chance to connect, you’re not just increasing your follower count. You’re opening doors to inquiries, and sales are poised to follow suit.
Now, let’s talk guarantees. No, I can’t promise overnight miracles, but I can almost guarantee that if you commit to this routine, you’ll witness tangible growth within a week. It’s not just about the numbers; it’s about cultivating a thriving community around your brand. More followers, increased inquiries, and a boost in sales—they’re not just aspirations; they’re the natural outcomes of a routine infused with authenticity, strategic storytelling, and a touch of vulnerability. So, fear not, entrepreneur! The worst that can happen is nothing changes, but the best? Well, that’s a thriving business that resonates with an engaged and growing audience.
This works for me, and my clients, but I do want to tell you that whatever works for you is what will work best for monetizing your Instagram.
Never let people who haven’t achieved what you desire give you advice.
Our Insta feeds are FILLED with so-called “experts” showing you the hacks to go viral. Hacks may get you more views, but they’re not going to build you a sustainable business.
Instead, look for experts that have reviews, testimonials, screenshots of proof that they can indeed help you.
