Instagram Marketing Podcast #1: Learn How to Double Your Instagram Growth in One Month

With over 500k followers, Jenna Kutcher is a bit of an expert when it comes to growing a massive following on Instagram — and that’s the focus of this episode of The Goal Digger Podcast.

Chock-full of actionable tips (and hilarious anecdotes), Kutcher outlines the strategy she used to double her growth in just a single month.

Through a combination of experimentation and tracking her Instagram analytics, Kutcher learned that posts featuring images of herself often got more engagement than anything else. So for one month, she committed herself to only posting photos of herself.

The result?

In that one month, Kutcher saw her engagement rate skyrocket to 6-9% per post! She even had one post that got over 21% engagement.

This in turn led to more brand deals, sponsorship offers, and, of course, a ton more followers.

How it can help your Instagram marketing:

Deep diving into your Instagram analytics might sound scary, but as Kutcher shows in this podcast episode, sometimes the smallest changes can lead to the biggest results.

Even if Kutcher’s experiment doesn’t apply to your account directly, taking her advice and analyzing your post performance is one of the best ways to unearth new ways to drive better results on Instagram.

As Systrom says in the interview, “I think the best thing for any entrepreneur is failure.”

Real talk: when you’re using Instagram for business, sometimes it can be hard to disconnect from your screen and find a healthy balance between your real life and your internet life.
