How would you like to be able to use images to move people to fall in love with your brand and buy your stuff? One of the best places to post viral images is on Instagram. You’ve heard it said that pictures are worth a thousand words. Outside of video, images are the most shared status updates on any social media network. Pictures have the power to move people.
My friend and Instagram expert April Marie Tucker created a course that will help you do just that. April is a single mother of 3 who went from broke cocktail waitress to enrolling over 700 people into her business using Instagram.
April has three very active kids as you can see in the photograph to the left. Best part is, she did built a 6 figure business while spending time with them.
I’ve gone through her training and using her simple strategies now have a following of over 20,000 on Instagram. It just plain works.
Your Key to Success on Instagram
I’m going to give you a simple formula to achieve success on Instagram. If you embrace this formula you will never run out of people to talk to and you will write your own paycheck.
It’s not the number of followers on Instagram that gives you success. It’s having an ENGAGED audience.
With that said, here’s the formula
BA + EA + SA = FF
You must first BUILD and ENGAGE your audience before you sell to your audience. Instagram is one of the best social media networks to build and engage your audience.
In order to build and engage your audience on Instagram you must focus on your Instagram profile.
3 Tips to Optimize Your Instagram Profile
Most people ignore their Instagram Profile, which is the most important piece of real estate on Instagram. It allows you to create a compelling picture for why people need to pay attention to you.
Here are three simple tips to optimizing your Instagram account to increase your followers and leads.
Tip #1: Describe Who You Are and What You Do
People need to read your profile and know exactly what you do. Be playful and fun describing yourself.
Have one line for each description and use emojis. Why? Two reasons.
First, emojis make your profile stand out. Second, your Instagram profile has a character limit and having emojis can save you character space, especially with big words.
Tip #2: Have a Call to Action
Have a short description using a combination of text and emojis telling people what you want them to do. People like to be told what to do.

Tip #3: Have a URL in Your Profile
