Today’s we don’t want to talk to you about how to use your Instagram to get more listeners on the music and the stuff that you’d be creating. So if you’re new to my blog Casey, I’m a producer beat maker and engineer for over 10 years, and I upload articles on how to make peace, how to mix your music and how to use Logic Pro, sometimes for our new clio’s of self help or how To grow your brand, today’s article is going to share some tips that I’ve been using them for Instagram to grow.
My following, so the first of all consistency. You’ve got to be consistent that for me up before I was posting that every three to four days, sometimes five days and I didn’t really see much difference, much growth in my my following or engagement, then I switched up and start to post every two to three Days and though it’s a big difference in engagement and followers, and also people asking about inquiring about bees and mixing and stuff that food, which is the main reason why I’m on Instagram yeah to build my brand.
So what you need to do start posting more consistently. You don’t have to post every two to three days comes down to self awareness. If you feel like you, want to post every two to three days and do that, if you want to post every day, duder some some of the pages that I follow, they post that four or five times a day – and I see i’ve, seen a difference in Their engagement and their followers, which is probably something that they they’re aiming for, so you’ve got to have a goal.
Obviously, if it’s just instant gratification that you’re looking for like 50 lakhs or hundred lakhs for your post just for today, then you do that. But if you’ve got bigger, pitch and you’re trying to build your brand and reach people organically, then there’s ways of dinner, and this is what I’m showing you. So the next thing you need to be, then, is posting good content, consistent content right people don’t want you.
Don’t want new people to go into your wall and see your wall. Is it’s just it’s a bit bit! Mismatched lucky! You don’t know. What’s going on one-minute year, yeah in food, next to your your dogs on there or your cat will prepare whatever pet you’ve got and then you’re in a studio. I just think you need to be a bit more consistent with it, but at the same time, if that’s what works for you, then just crack on and do that.
For me, what I’ve been doing is posting like the finished product on my actual wall and then using IG stories to show behind the scenes so like I’d, be in the studio, making beats or just I’ll post me, editing, flowers that I’ve been given to mix so Cuz, I know if I put that onto my wall, it’s going to be a bit boring for some people and it’s not going to really get the engagement that I’m looking for.
So I’d rather just put that in my stories like me, going to the gym or me with the family going out or so laughs. So that’s what you can use your stories for you don’t have to have everything on your wall, so that’s consistency being consistent and posting good content. Another thing that I’ve been doing is commenting and a lot more people’s work. So rappers, I see them doing their thing or beat maker and their listen to what they did, leave a genuine comment, it alike, and that helps to build a rapport with that person.
You know I’m saying so: they they seen that you’ve commented on their stuff and they probably comment and your stuff or they might lack some of your stuff. They fully you further back you fully. They may fall about whatever and that way you’re building like an organic following. So I’m saying and next time you post they’re more than likely to see that post and be like oh yeah, that’s so, and so let me just hit them up and hit put a lock on it on there and their post and instagram loves to see that You, when you post enough to see that in the first hour that there’s been a lot of engagement, because I’ve been hearing they’re only showing like 10 percent of the people that who follow your post.
So if you’re, getting like a high engagement, they’re, probably just going to show a few more people and that way you get more reach might even end up on the explore page. It’s doable. If that’s what you’ve won, that will help to grow your following. That will help you to boost your brand awareness. Another thing that I’ve been doing is using hashtags. I still use hashtags. Some people don’t want to use hashtags.
Some people think it’s corny. I still use hashtags because that in a day someone looking for beats – or I put hashtag beat maker or send beats, and someone puts that in this I’ll come up or you come up. So there’s nothing wrong with hashtags. It’s still use them take advantage. Man make it better. Well, I don’t know if there’s a cap on how many you should use, that’s something that you’re going to have to experiment with I’m normally used between 5 and 15, sometimes 20, and it seems to be working for me.
So what you need to do is experiment see what hashtags work for you. What’s not working for you, I like to put them in my comments still and some people like to use dot, dot, dot and then hashtags in the caption, because they feel like it’s going to get more reach. I don’t know if that’s true but, like I said experiment, let’s see what works here and also, if you’re posting, you need to kind of work out what what’s the best times to post.
So for me, I like to post in the mornings, seem to be getting more engagement. That way so Instagram can bump me up too to let other people see it. That way, like I keep saying it, can build brand awareness and have more people on and eyes on my business because I didn’t date at the end of the day, I’m just trying and what I’m trying to do is reach music. Art is to work with and help beat makers with, use your logic and making beats and mixing stuff.
So we just find that, what’s the best time for you to post experiment with it posting a morning post in the evening, maybe lunch time or night time when everyone’s back home from work or whatever, then you can hit it with a post. Just to recap, be consistent, post post, often post frequently post good content on your wall user AG stories to show you behind the scenes of what you’ve been working on and as well use drop hashtags into your IG stories that works locations and all that to build A good rapport with people by comment in and lacan on, their work and hashtag resolve find out what hashtags are working for you that should help you to grow.
Your Instagram and game get more listeners and ears on your music or whatever is your craving, because I don’t say that’s what you’re trying to do. You know you don’t want a whole heap of music on your hard drive just sitting there or you just got your family and friends. Listen to it because you’re creative you’re, talented, you need it, but you need people.
