Master Instagram growth with Gary Vaynerchuk’s $1.80 strategy. Boost engagement, find your niche, and build an authentic community.

“Cinderella, this isn’t a fairy tale. It’s Instagram,” I remember saying to a friend over a light brunch at the Ivy. We’ve all heard the story. Girl makes an Instagram account, posts a few pictures, wakes up the next day, and voila, a million followers and an endless stream of brand deals. Oh, if only the path to Instagram stardom was as simple as waving a magic wand.

It’s no secret that every aspiring socialite, entrepreneur, and go-getter out there obsessively wonders the same thing: “How do I grow my Instagram account for my business or brand?” And darling, aren’t we all? From the Manhattan elite to the upcoming influencers in Belgravia, everyone wants a piece of the Instagram success cake. So who better to turn to for guidance than the digital godfather himself, Gary Vaynerchuk?

Well, listen up because Gary’s got the royal recipe for Instagram growth. He calls it the “$1.80 Instagram strategy“. Rather fitting, if you ask me since we’re all striving for that Instagram crown. But the real question is, how can one employ this strategy to build their own empire?

Join me as I unveil how you can perfect this strategy, taking lessons from Gary and applying them to our very own PRINCESSA Academy.

Step 1: Finding the best hashtags to follow related to your brand, business

Think of this as the grand ball. You’re there to find your Prince Charming, but first, you need to know where to look. Dive deep into Instagram’s sea of hashtags, identify the ones relevant to your brand, and begin your pursuit. It could be #wellness if you’re a fitness enthusiast or #mindfulness if you’re into meditation. Just like Gary, let your passions lead the way.

Step 2: Leave your Instagram comment .02c for the 1.80 Instagram strategy

Now that you’ve found your Prince Charming (read: perfect hashtags), it’s time to make your move. Get out there and drop your thoughts on the top nine trending Instagram posts for ten different hashtags relevant to your brand or business daily. You’ll leave a full $1.80 of thoughts online in the specific category, niche or industry you want to become a part of. Remember, being authentic is key; no one likes a pretentious prince.

Step 3: Continue to comment, like and engage on Instagram

The grand ball doesn’t end at midnight. This isn’t a one-time affair. To truly master the art of Instagram growth, you must continue to engage with your audience. Comment, like, respond, share – remain active and become part of the Instagram community.

So, dear ones, the journey to Instagram stardom isn’t about the perfect outfit or the prettiest smile but building a kingdom of like-minded souls. It’s about participation, authenticity, and meaningful relationships. Remember, every relationship has value, just like every cent in that $1.80 strategy.

Until next time, stay fabulous, and remember, there’s always a place for you in the high society of Instagram. The PRINCESSA Academy awaits you. Be seen, be heard, and most importantly, be you.

After mastering the $1.80 strategy, we’ll delve deeper into Instagram networking via direct messages (DMs). Here, in the world of Instagram DMs, your reach expands even more, directly touching base with potential followers, influencers, and clients.

Step 4: Strategise your Instagram DMs

Instagram DMs are akin to the secret passages in a palace; they let you reach your audience directly. Gary insists on initiating conversations with at least 90 unique individuals in your target demographic daily, making it an essential part of the process.

Step 5: Authenticity in communication

Just like any royal decree, your messages should be authentic, direct, and meaningful. Authenticity fosters trust, and trust builds relationships. Remember, your goal is establishing a community, not a one-sided fan club.

Step 6: Consistency is key

The rise to Instagram stardom is a marathon, not a sprint. Consistent engagement and networking are essential. Comment, like, share and direct messages consistently. This consistency will keep your brand on top of the Instagram algorithm, increasing your visibility.

Step 7: Analyse and adapt

The final step in the process is to evaluate your progress continually. Identify what works, learn from what doesn’t, and adapt your strategies accordingly. Use Instagram’s insights and analytics to guide your journey.
