There are currently 200,000+ businesses out there using Instagram to promote their products and services. I was hoping to get some information on just general promoting from this book but it is really geared more towards selling – but there are still some good tips that can be used in both cases. To follow up, you can also visit UGIGbook.com. Some of the tips that I took to heart are – Don’t spam. Don’t be too chicken to post. There is a lot of information on how to set up your account and guides to some of the photo effects you can use. There’s also a list of popular hashtags – if yours are relevant that can help you get more traffic to your posts and account. According to this resource here, there a lot of great content on giveaways and getting interaction between your brand and your followers. You want to build trust with your followers. There’s also a list of apps to check out to help out with your account, some that I am going to be checking out include: fontcandy, hipstamatic, Schedulegram, facetune and Later. Again, if you are someone trying to sell a product or a service, this book has lots of valuable information in it that you won’t want to miss out on.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
