hey everyone I mean as a tow Rakib Khan or theme probably and in today’s Posts we are going to talk about how to sell on Instagram I
am going to share 10 ways that you can start using your Instagram as a way to make money and to sell now I work with all different types of entrepreneurs and content creators and influencers so one of the biggest mistakes that I see is that people aren’t actually using Instagram as a place to monetize they post without a strategy and no matter what business you’re in even if you’re a personal brand or an influencer or if
you’re a brand that sells on no tangible products or a doctor or dentist
whatever you are if you’re using Instagram in a business capacity
then you’re gonna want to make sure that you’re actually optimizing this platform to actually help you sell so today’s Posts are gonna cover the top 10 ways that I always recommend so let’s jump in so my first tip is you have to always be very clear with what you sell this needs to be in
How much does it cost to sell on Instagram?
your bio and your highlight the strategy you need to be able to really
effectively communicate what it is that your business is about now if you’re an influencer and you’re like well I don’t really sell anything and you know I’m a personal brand then make sure that your Biol lets people know that I work with brands to create content and your
highlights would say something like work with me or content that I’ve created or Posts testimonials or whatever it is it’s not about just selling tangible products but the point are it’s about having a mindset that Instagram now needs to be very clear everything from your tone your captions your bio your highlight strategy all that good stuff needs to let people know what it is that you’re selling now, of course, you don’t want to be too salesy no one wants to follow a sales e Instagram page people
want value people to want information so between your selling points, you need to offer that value you need to offer that hook and that authenticity to actually keep your audience engaged and want them
to come back if every single post is about selling
How many followers do you need to sell on Instagram?
no one’s gonna stay on your page and people are gonna get annoying
very quick because that’s not the experience on Instagram so definitely
keep that in mind I just want you guys to be clear about what you’re selling or how you’re trying to monetize as the very first step so my second step we want to learn to saw on Instagram is you need to gain people’s trust people need to trust you they need to like you they need to understand who you are so my the second tip for selling is actually don’t
sell it all but show up be there for your community be there for your
audience show up in stories let them see who you are if you are aged someone who is usually behind the screen well it’s time to come forward and be on camera and on-screen to let people know more about you even if you don’t want to do that on your permanent posts stories is
a great way to start building that trust with your community so that they can actually feel confident in buying from you in the future I always
Do you have to pay taxes if you sell on Instagram?
recommend things like you know set up your own zoom call or find a way to get your community offline in a secret safe sort of space engage with them and learn about what their needs are it’s gonna help you develop better products and I guess serve them better in the long-run so my third tip for selling on Instagram is getting life whether it’s on an Instagram live or you’re talking to them like a webinar or a zoom call or
whatever it is selling life is so much more effective than selling you know in a caption or in an email and this is because people feel you they see you’re the energy they you know feel like connected to you in a way so even again if you’re reselling a tangible product you can get
some sort of brand ambassador within the company to serve as that person that you know goes live and people connect with
How do I accept payment on Instagram?
That’s an amazing place to start even if you yourself as the owner of the
business don’t want to go in front of you need to find someone from within the company that you think that you know can highlight this position for you and if you’re a personal brand or an influencer
or someone on the content side this goes for you too if you’re going to be selling anything even if it’s not a digital product but maybe you’re selling a service or panel workshop tickets or whatever it is selling life is going to you know really really increase your chances of actually making that sale my the fourth tip is to use direct messages to
your advantage the DM so many people will reach out to you via DM and maybe want to find a way to work with you or learn more about you or ask you questions this is a perfect opportunity to take those inbound
Can I make money on Instagram with 1000 followers?
you know requests of people coming in and turn them into either a lead or an actual sale if someone is coming into your DM you can you offer them a freebie get them on your list which would then take them down some sort of you know welcome series I’d let them learn more about you where you can sell to them there or depending on what the ask is
you know you can sell directly in the DM we’ve got people right away ask us how do I work with you and we just send the link and right there we’re able to sell so you want to make it easy for your end customer to be able to purchase from you and if it’s let’s just say a brand that wants to work with you have you know a landing page set up or have a survey set up or some way to capture their information that you can send them
right away like an inquiry form or even get their information so that you can follow that lead and close the sale another way to sell on Instagram is by self-creating shoppable posts now Instagram I’ve included a link below because you do need to be approved by Instagram to have
Can you sell directly on Instagram?
shoppable posts but this is something that I think is gonna be happening way more and Instagram is gonna want to let creators monetize and
have you know their e-commerce business set up on the platform so people can just shop right away so of course if you’re selling anything you may want to start looking into the shoppable post a feature so that you can just sell directly through the posts the sixth tip to sell I think this is a really good one to show behind the scenes of the
product creation or whatever it is you’re doing if you’re an influencer and you’re on a campaign even if you’re not on a real campaign and you’ve set your own up you know to help get you work show that behind-the-scenes if you create a tangible product show the
factory show how it’s being made if you’re a coach show yourself prepping and preparing or what that looks like people trust in the behind-the-scenes process it makes them feel like they’re being let in and they
how to sell on Instagram dm?
understand how it all works so if you can let people in behind the scenes as a great way to sell on Instagram my the seventh tip which I love is share testimonials of people using your product or your service this speaks volumes because you’re not selling they are if people love what you do they find value in what you do and they trust you and they feel like a brand rep they’ll do the selling for you you just need to work on getting those testimonials and work on getting you to know people to
actually do that for you so you always have to provide really good service and really good value and then people will be more than willing to provide you a Posts testimonial you can use that you know in your highlights and your posts as ways to help sell without having to be super sales y my eighth tip would be to use questions in stories to give
people confidence so people may want to ask questions before they buy they may have like you know concerns or I don know things that they wouldn’t have they want to purchase but they don’t know XYZ by
sell an Instagram account?
enabling them to ask these questions and stories by giving them that prompt do you have any questions about our upcoming product or upcoming service or do have any questions of about working with me you basically allow it you’re giving them a prompt so that they can
respond to it maybe they wouldn’t have thought about messaging you what their questions are but because you’re asking how you’re gonna get that response and that’s definitely gonna help you saw on Instagram because people want that trust and they want to feel good about the purchase so if you’re able to add an answer any questions that they have you’ll have a better opportunity of closing the sale my 9 tips would be to show different ways people can use the product this is huge because sometimes people don’t necessarily know how your product is
meant to be like all the different facets of it you want to show the different ways if you have a service you want to clearly explain this is what is included in my service maybe there are bonuses that are included it’s an actual the tangible product you want to show people
how to use it this is almost more like tutorials so again people feel safe they feel like they have a strong understanding they don’t you know they want to feel good about making that purchase
ideas of what to sell on instagram?
and the tutorial and showing people are gonna help them do just that and my last tip but not obviously the only one but the last one for this Posts is to tease a product before launch if you have a product or something that’s coming down the pipeline don’t just say hey I’m here
to sell you want to tease it beforehand spend a week doing a pre-launch strategy show again a little bit of those behind the scenes or show like bits and pieces of what’s coming down the pipeline build some excitement because whenever you pre-launch it gets people excited to actually purchase once it’s available so I hope you guys like this Posts if you want to learn more about selling and monetizing your business then you’re going to want to look into our group coaching I’ve included a link below that you can work with me in my business partner Clarisse with about 15 other people just like you and we go over this exact module but way deeper how to monetize your business and we talk about
