It finally happened. My Instagram account got disabled for violating community guidelines Saturday. Honestly, it SHOULD have happened years ago. I have tried everything under the sun on my account for testing purposes and whatnot and quite honestly, my goodness score must have been next to 0.
So what did it do you think?
Was it 100's of comments dumping in on one second (accidentally) that I was testing a new strategy with?
Was it having my virtual assistant AND Agent and me posting stories and 100's of comments in that exact second that tripped it?
I don't know entirely though I am pretty sure it was suspicious logins over the course of the month from my virtual assistant company in a different country who had to close and quarantine due to covid and so the workers had to login from home Ips, tripping phone verifications often, etc and then when they came back to the office it tripped a "Is this you" login request. And during that hour that the VA was working, I was storying...
If you're looking for a way to grow your following on Instagram, there are a ton of different things you can do. From buying followers to paying for ads, there are many ways to get more followers. Today we are going to chat about one of the most effective ways to steal your competitors followers and why you should do this.
It's important to have a large following on Instagram if you're looking to grow your business. But how can you get more followers when your competitor has such a large following already?
You might not be able to get all of them, but you should be able to get some of them.
How? By mentioning them in your comments under your post and tagging their username in it. This will increase the likelihood that they will see the post, and if they see it then they will most likely check you out and follow you.

The holiday season is in full swing and it's time to start thinking about your plans for the final quarter of the year. Here are a few tips to help you prepare and plan for the fourth quarter of 2017.
1) Start planning your holiday content early - this is the time when people are most engaged with their social media feeds, so it's a great time to post content that will get in front of your audience and give them inspiration. Holiday content can take many different forms, from recipes to gift guides, so think about what you enjoy creating and choose a topic accordingly.
2) Consider collaborating with brands that align with your values - this goes hand-in-hand with planning out your holiday content. You might want to create something around the holidays that ties into your personal brand or a related topic, such as food or fashion. If you're interested in partnering with brands, start by reaching out to them on social media or emailing them directly if you know someone who works at...
Every day, more and more people are turning to social media as a way to express themselves. In fact, many people are finding that they can make a living by creating content on various social media platforms. If you're looking to jump into the world of influencer marketing, there's a lot you need to know about what it takes to become an agent for an influencer.
First things first: What is an influencer?
An influencer is someone who has followers on social media and who can influence their followers' decisions. For example, if someone follows a fitness influencer on Instagram, they may follow their advice about what kind of workout they should do or what food they should eat. Brands will often pay influencers to promote their products or services.
What is an agent for an influencer?
An agent for an influencer is someone who helps them find brands and sponsorships to work with. Agents typically take a commission from the money that the influencer earns from these collaborations....
1. Keep it short: A video reel should be less than 30 seconds long, with most being under 15. The shorter the video, the more likely people are to watch it.
2. Get to the point: Keep your message short and to the point. Your video should be simple and easy to understand in a short amount of time.
3. Maintain an even tempo: Make sure you don't go too fast or too slow in your video reel. A steady pace is best so people can keep up with what you're saying and keep their attention on your reel.
4. Include a call-to-action: Tell viewers what they should do after watching your video reel, whether that's subscribing, following you on social media, or watching another one of your videos. This will help them move from passive viewer to active participant in your campaign and ultimately help you reach your goal of capturing their attention for a few minutes while they're scrolling through their feed.
5. Put together a cohesive presentation: Use a consistent theme throughout all of your...
I'll be honest, I find it difficult to write good captions for my own photos. Especially after having done this for SIX years. I'm fresh out of ideas, inspo and creative ideas often. I find myself hung up on submitting drafts to brands because I can't find the motivation to write the caption. It's brutal!
Captions are supposed to add context to the photo and give it a story. With limited time and little writing inspiration, Instagram captions can be a daunting task!
Move over lack of inspo and motivation!
Now, with the help of a artificial intelligence, we can generate captions for your Instagram photos in seconds.
Here's how to do it and try it for yourself:
1. Create an account at text.cortex
2. Scroll down to write with TextCortex on the left hand menu.
3. Click "Auto Complete Sentences"
4. Tell it what to write about. Start it with "Write an Instagram caption for" and finish it with detailed info about what it's supposed to be about.
5. End it with a :
There's no denying that captions are a crucial part of any Instagram post. Influencers and content creators alike know that a good caption can make or break an Instagram post. If it's boring, not engaging, or doesn't help to tell the story of the post, then you're missing out on a lot of potential engagement. The trick is to find the perfect balance between captions that are informative and captions that are entertaining.
For example, if you're posting a photo of your dog at the beach, then a caption like "I'm so lucky to have such a playful pup!" will probably be more engaging than "Here's my dog at the beach." The second caption is informative, but the first caption is more engaging because it's more relatable. Here's how to create captions that are not only informative, but also entertaining and engaging.
1. Don't Be Boring
One of the most common mistakes that Instagram influencers make is posting dull captions. If you've...

As we mention throughout the guides and email challenge, tracking the click-throughs from Instagram to your blog or whichever link you are promoting is important because brands care about the cold, hard numbers about the conversions from the campaigns.
When you do a sponsored post for a brand, you should follow-up with links to all the posts across social media channels as well as the numbers of likes, comments, click-throughs to the blog (if there is a correlating blog post which most brands want).
The URL that you input in your Instagram profile will not show up in Google Analytics unless you add in Google Tracking Parameter.
