How To Grow On Instagram | Tips To Grow Instagram Followers 2018

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. You need a world to hear what you create and you need to share it, stop being so selfish now, but seriously get your work out there and keep pushing Punk.

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES: Website Hacked

What’s going on is Casey from Casey sounds calm, so today’s article is learn from my mistakes. So if you’ve been keeping up with the articles that I’ve been putting out, you would know this put a article up about having your own website. So in that article I was talking about why you should have a website and why it’s a good thing to have made you look professional and you can make it your home page and you can make it branded and all that good stuff yeah.

It’s just positive. Just all positive stuff, but in that article I didn’t mention the fact of you could possibly get hat, which is something that’s happened to me in the last week within the last week. So what happened was? I was super net. My website doing all this added some new stuff to the blogs and Supan up the SEO, because I obviously I want to rank higher for selling beats and mix and mastering so I thought to myself.

Let me just put Casey sands in Google search and see will come up. I’ve done that and then clicked and then I could see the description box saying something completely different to what I saw and you can imagine I was devastated. But at first I didn’t realize that I was hacked. I didn’t realize how much I would have to do to get it back up and running. So when I, my Instagram story is talking about it and kind of like laughing and joking about it.

Some updates to my my website and sorting out the SEO and stuff like that yeah. So I thought, let me just put a quick search in and see what comes up for the description theme. Look what it says after laughing and joking about it, I think about couply. I was laid up. I realized that had been hacked and it’s going to cost me quite a bit of money to sort and this I could do myself, and so I got on the phone to my web hosting.

They quoted me a price for them to fix it, and I was just like wow. That’s a lot of money. I thought is just going to be like a little plugin. That’s cause my website to crash. So I’ll. Just talk to my web host a they said to me that I’ve been hacked and is malware on my actual website, so I’m using the WordPress plug-in, which is something I spoke about in my article saying that yeah you should use this plugin as well.

I don’t get me wrong, the plugins nicest it looks the part, but then is also these other factors that you need to think about and have in place to make sure that you don’t get hacked and that your security is up to scratch watertight. So I spend a good couple of days researching how to get rid of malware, what plugins used to get rid of the Marwin of WordPress back-end, and it set me back. It did sent me back good couple of days.

I had obviously other people’s work, gigs mix and mastering to do and stuff. I wanted to put a new tube that I couldn’t cuz. I put it on the back burner just to sort this website out, because I didn’t want people to go in to put Casey sands in or go and look for beasts and then click on it and then cedar. I’m selling because something completely different, which is not good for a first time, client or first time, man.

These are so this articles. It’s about you! Learning from my mistakes, don’t make the same mistake that I did if you want, if you’re wanting, if you’re running a WordPress website, make sure that you’ve got all security that you need, you’ve got your malware protection. Your backing up your website, changing your passwords regularly regular! I’m not hundred percent how they had they managed to hack me when I spoke to the web hosting they said.

Is it’s a common thing malware to get on there? So now I’ve got all the security up to date. Passwords have been changed, it’s something that I want to do regular, because I kind of like put a password in and forgot about it. I wasn’t updating it regularly. I wasn’t backing it up, which is something which I ain’t going to happen again, because I’m making sure that I’m on top of it, because that took so much time and effort just trying to get it back to normal and have my Meta Description.

Saying what I sell, beats and mix and mastering services so yeah, please make sure if you are running a website, WordPress website that you’ve got all the necessary security, malware protection web hosting security. Even if you have to pay that extra bit a month. Do it because trust me, when you get hats, it is devastating and it takes a lot of time to get it back up and running it, and you also cost a lot of money which you might not want to pay out.

You could use that money on creating ads or buy studio equipment. Yeah just learn from my mistakes.

You can find good produce up to work with tip number one tip number one’s going to be your local area. Where you live, it’s bad to be producer out there that’s ready to work and it’s down to work.

But this all depends if you’re just looking for a producer to buy beans from or you look into to, build with them and a collab a collaborative basis, which means no upfront fee. But you will come up with some kind of agreement on the ROI. So that’s located on word-of-mouth tell your family and friends. Your family and friends will know that you do music or it should not reverse. If that short should be a support system and wife, it’s not colleges.

Universities in your area get out there. Networking meet like-minded people. I got it before searching Eventbrite, see who’s hold it. Networking events for musicians most timely producers will call it dynamics. I know I do we’re looking for artists, you wants to work with so yeah just get a new local air and stop start working with producers in your area and whoever’s making the type of music that you like to create then go for it tip number two: Will be Instagram Instagram is, I don’t know the success rate, it’s kind of saturated, but you still will be able to find decent music producers and beat makers, I’m just going to call it music producers, these music producers on there looking for artists to work with.

So what you need to do is go into this search bar put in put in need, beats, put instantly beats yeah, because I even know it’s saying send me: bees need beats. I know for me I’ll put that in a hashtags, because I don’t know that music is looking or will use that.

So you need to see if you, if you resonate with that Medusa, are they putting out the type of music that you like the type of sound that you like, if not keep it moving. There’s plenty more on there and just hit you so once you do find someone, let’s hit them up at a DM and then it has to be for all bridges and beat makers.

But when someone hits up in your DM saying, I, like your Sam, this work that there is that that’s everything I’m saying cuz! This is that’s what your Dana for in it. So when you’re putting in your content at me, you want people to see what you’re doing and get in touch and start collaborating, so yeah just hit up hit them up minute. Dm it happen is DM. I don’t know think you need to say. Oh cool piece, nice piece and well, I think if you weren’t in the DM and I said, look I’m a music artist looking to work blah blah find out.

If this, if it’s a case of you having to pay for the beats or if it’s a collaborative fee, all depending on what you’re trying to do, is war so yeah, okay, some producers, I’m not into the freebies thing or trying to collab summers – want to make Money, but that’s it just talk to see, see what you’re. After don’t, if you don’t work out, keep moving tip number three kind of the same thing: YouTube your planet, your feet, articles on there put search in plant beets or beets, they’re, sort of keywords, you’re going to bring up a whole heap of banners.
