You Can’t Hack Your Instagram’s Growth

People use and talk about Social Media a lot. Our lives changed so much due to their existence to a level where we say to each other that we should keep our phones in our pocket and enjoy real life.

Although I don’t like social media so much, I’m very fond of the people that know how to make good money from them.

It’s an art.

Although calculating the ROI of social media is difficult, it all comes down to awareness and influence.

Personally, I use Instagram just to follow interesting people (I don’t try to sell anything), but our team has helped some accounts to grow bigger.

Most of the guides you will read out there are outdated and probably so will be this one also in the next few months.

This article has to do with what Instagram allows, how it serves content and how you can leverage those in order to build a healthy account.

A Marketing Conference That Actually Helped Us Grow!

This is not just another article.  It’s just a recap of some awesome things I experienced first-hand in the beginning of the month.

How To Get Early Traction For Your Startup

Who doesn’t want their product to skyrocket?

Who doesn’t want that VC investment that will back all these amazing product features?

How all these unicorn startups made it?

2 words: Early Traction.

Having early traction is a sign that you have a product that people want to use and also acts as an insurance for VCs and their investment. You don’t need money to get early traction.

You need early traction to get money, honey!

The Ultimate Step-By-Step Guide To Guest Blogging [+ Trello Template]

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over time, is that people in business tend to work with folks that belong to the other side; those that take risks and always go one step further. It’s those people that make the difference.

Are you one of them?

Use The Force

“The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.”- Obi Wan Kenobi

I couldn’t find a better way to begin this article, than quoting Ben Kenobi’s words to Luke Skywalker. As the force to a Jedi (or a Sith), knowledge is the ulterior motive for a Growth Hacker.

Knowledge comes to us from a lot of different sources, either for free or in a highly paid manner. The truth is that for one to obtain it, all it takes is the will for it.

I personally feed on knowledge. Whether is learning a stupid information (and obviously, memorising sci-fi movie quotes) or mastering a tool for my job, pursuing knowledge is established in my daily routine and a vital factor for my performance at work.
