Focus on Influencers under 1 million followers
If you are starting in Instagram marketing, then it’s better to start with a small account. User Instagram’s search bar and look for influencers in your niche. Every niche has an established influencer, but you should look for a less-known person. Start with an influencer who has under 15 000 followers. Don’t forget to check the engagement rate of the account.
So, your main task is to find as many Instagram influencers under 15 000 followers as possible. Then you should store every account in the working document. In that way, it’s easy to understand which account can give you profit.
Choose an account with a higher engagement rate.
The engagement rate equals the percentage of engagement on Instagram posts. For example, if an account is getting 100 likes on average and has 1000 followers, then the engagement rate is 10%. You should look for a higher engagement rate. In general, the most prominent Instagram influencers have a 2-5% rate.
You’ll see a higher rate of engagement in niche-specific influencers. With the help of the working document, you’ll understand which account has a better rate.
Ask for 12 and 24 hours promotion
In most cases, Influencers advise you to go for 24 hours promotion. If you want to save money as it’s your first step in influencers marketing, then go for 24 hours promotion. Don’t ask them for 12 hours promotion blindly. First, ask for statistics from Instagram analytics. Then look at the times when influencer’s followers mostly active. Choose the most productive 12 hours of the day and publish your ad in that period.
