On the 6th day of Movember, the votes are in and “The Question Mark” has won in the polls. I’ll be craving it out tomorrow, but today I’m reviewing Instagram hacks that work.
I’ve barely dipped my toe into the world of Instagram, which has been on the internets since 2010. I’m on a mission to use as many Instagram hacks as necessary to grow my audience to over 10,000 followers. The original post was Movember 8th, 2018, but there will be updates periodically that showcase results from the products.
The first product I’m testing out is Kicksta, which helps brands and influencers grow on Instagram by providing them with a tool that connects them with real followers. This quick video explains how simple the platform is:
I’ll be using this product throughout the month of #Movember. The goal is to accelerate the growth of my audience from a modest 184 followers (and I’m following 160).
My video is quick view of the platform, but Alex (we’re on a nickname basis) explains what the product actually does in much better detail in this video:
So what are Instagram follower worth? Merely thousands of dollars once you get into the six figure followers realm. According to Forbes, “An Instagram user with 100,000 followers can command $5,000 for a post made in partnership with a company or brand.”
100,000 followers would be pretty cool, but I’m a modest guy, I just want to hit 10,000 followers. That’s the magic number where micro-influencer status kicks in and brands start reaching out to you for sponsorship opportunities.
Kicksta is absolutely worth a try at $49/month for the service. Use this link and the code BFSAVE for a buy one month, get one free.
My first month of actively posting and using Kicksta has done pretty nicely. In less than 30 days, I raise my 184 followers up to 497, an increase of 313.
It doesn’t seem that cool, but if you factor in a learning curve for the product and that I didn’t post every single day (27 posts total), I’d say this was pretty great boost for doing very minimal work
Update May 4th, 2019
I tested out the Pro plan and I’m up +976 Followers in the last 3 months. That’s an average of 300+ new followers every month that are engaging with me on Instagram. My biggest engagement post was on 3/28/19 which was MLB opening day. 600 views, 150 likes, 12% engagement. All these stats Kicksta provides for me on the dashboard, which I love to see!
