Some Secrets to “Blowing Up” on Instagram
So, why are these real estate agents so popular on a platform as big as Instagram? How did they do it? Is it hard? And what do I need to achieve similar results?
Don’t worry, we’re going to talk about that and more!
P. S. This does not involve buying fake followers or running a follow-for-follow train!
Let’s get started.
Put Your Face Forward
What is the first thing your ideal audience will see when they stumble upon your page? Your face! Or rather, your profile photo.
People don’t use Instagram to be sold to. They use it to get the inside scoop of a corporation, celebrity, friends, etc. All people want to be there is to be entertained.
They want to know who YOU are, not your company.
Like we mentioned above: BE YOU
A lot of lives are edited and streamlined to show people only the good sides of life. But that’s not what loyal followers and potential buyers want.
What they want is someone authentic, relatable, and well, human.
So don’t forget to add a few fun posts in between your real estate-related content. Crack a few jokes, post a meme once in a while.
Come Up with a Clear and Fresh Bio
The next thing your audience will check out will be your bio.
You’re limited to only a few characters on IG bios, so make them count.
Say a line or two about what you do, and add something personal! That could be a hobby, favorite food, book, etc.!
Use emojis to add some color and character to your bio.
Get people curious to know more about you and what you have to offer.
For example, you can write:
Part-time realtor, full-time fur parent
(link to your website/page)
The goal here is to attract the right crowd to your profile.
If your account is veered towards real estate and selling real estate, make content about that!
Add value posts on how to choose their ideal property, find their dream home, your wins, your losses, and slip on an icy lawn during an open house.
And use the right hashtags!
Niching down and tailoring your Instagram feed to that niche will help boost your posts so they show up in the scenes of the right people.
Add Calls to Action
Sometimes, you need to tell people what to do. So add a call to action.
Call to actions include:
- DM me now!
- Leave a like and follow!
- Tag a friend!
- Like and share!
- Check us out for more tips!
Adding a CTA will tell your viewers and followers what they should do if they want to see more of you and your content.
Engage, Engage, Engage!
Unless you’re uber famous like the real estate Instagram stars we talked about above, you will have to engage with the people who comment under your posts.
Even a simple “thank you” or a laughing emoji at a funny comment will show your followers that you appreciate their presence and engagement in your posts.
Plus, interacting with your commenters will also boost your post because Instagram will see you as an active account that shares valuable information.
This tells the IG algorithm to boost your content, allowing more users to see and interact with whatever you are posting.
You don’t need to follow these tips to a “t”. Of course, you can break a rule here and there. But these are the best ways to grow a loyal following on a platform like Instagram.
And the best part? All of these tips are free and easy to do!
The quickest and surest way to win in your career is to follow in the footsteps of the winners. Learn their techniques, adopt their mindset, and maybe even interact with their content from time to time.
Who knows? Maybe that short one-liner will get the attention of your favorite Instagram realtor!
Following top realtors on Instagram will also give you access to other professionals in the same field. That’s free networking!
And if you follow the tips we gave above, maybe in a few months’ time, you could be the next Ryan Serhant!
