It is well-known by most social media readers with an entrepreneurial bent that marketing work forms a pivotal part of their daily work schedule or regime.
But here is a scary or disheartening thought, depending on how you would be looking at the problem. It could also be irksome or downright irritating, depending on the standards you may have already set for yourself as a consumer and/or entrepreneur. Hardly a thought is given to editing work. Dismiss editing work at your own peril and the rest of this note on how to get more Instagram followers would become meaningless and inconsequential.
Two sets of editing tasks customary to Instagram are not difficult to maintain and manage. But it more than likely requires discipline, diligence and dedication. With exponential practice, these management tasks are not time-consuming. It is necessary to monitor the filtering in of unwanted photographs and images. And whilst the Instagram editing tools are effective, it cannot be foolproof. This is due to the high volumes of traffic that continue to filter across platforms. To this end, it becomes necessary for the platform user to check every once in a while to make sure that acceptance or approval tools are primed accordingly.
One of the latest marketing concepts now in full swing in social media circles is that of influencer marketing. But this status does take time to achieve. It is not an overnight process, but depending on how proactive, ambitious and disciplined the Instagram activist is, it need not be an eternity before the budding entrepreneur or social activist achieves celebrity status. The earlier development of this evolutionary process requires you to make good use of your time as a dedicated follower.
But much like many people have neglected their essential editing and admin work, they have also been complacent and tardy in their attitudinal approach towards being a follower. No status is afforded to you merely because your name is listed among the many on a leading Instagram influencer’s platform. To the influencer, perhaps even irritatingly and frustratingly, you are just another number. Do not be surprised that he does not clean you out during one of his quarterly spring cleaning sessions.
You could hardly blame him, because he wanted to make space for active followers that he knows are going to make positive contributions towards his business or cause. And that really is the be all and end all of becoming a follower. It is certainly good practice for the day you turn influencer. You are encouraged to participate in ongoing and trending conversations. If a niche area is being covered, this is also your early moment to shine. To gain instant recognition, showcasing what you know about a certain product or idea.
A good way to enhance your reputation is to ‘consider your market’. This is a principle of marketing work. And there is also that great moment when you break the news on something consumers did not perceive of before.
