Social media marketing enables us to extend our online reach. Among all the platforms, Instagram is a great platform for influencer marketing and advertising.
Content Marketing Institute’s Ann Smarty has shared five steps to help you drive more organic clicks and leads from your Instagram channel.
She says, “Here are a few definitive steps to start seeing higher converting traffic from your Instagram channel:
1. Create eye-catching content
While content quality is crucial for any tactic, it’s actually fundamental for Instagram. You want people to stop scrolling when they see your update – otherwise, nothing else that you do to get clicks matters.
You need “scroll-stopping” content – eye-catching enough for people to pause from scrolling their feeds to see your post and read your caption.
Like all good content, its creation involves a lot of brainstorming, competitive analysis, and experimenting. Instagram content also requires you to improve your image and video editing skills. Trying new visual content creation and editing apps could make all the difference”.
A strong content marketing strategy enables you to increase your return on investment by growing customers and making more sales online.

He says, “First off, it’s what we do best here at Easelly, whether it’s through our simple infographic maker tool or team of infographic designers.
It’s worth noting that most of the principles and steps discussed below will also apply to other types of visual content assets.
1. The visual nature of infographics makes them more shareable.
As to why infographics are perfect tools to help boost your website rankings, Joshua Hardwick of Ahrefs (a well-known toolset for backlinks and SEO analysis) shares two reasons:
An infographic helps your readers understand and retain your message easily and quickly.
For example, when you hear information, you’re likely to remember only 10 percent of that information after 3 days. On the other hand, if a relevant image is paired with that same information, you are likely to retain 65 percent of the information after 3 days”.
Quality video content enables you to make your sales efforts more rewarding. By adding the element of persuasion in your videos, you can have more influence on your audience.
Social Media Examiner contributor Matt Johnston has shared four steps to help you make highly watchable video content.
He says, “To learn how to induce people to watch and share your video with their friends and followers on Instagram, Facebook, and other social media platforms, read the article below.
#1: Hook Viewers in the First 3-5 Seconds of Your Video
The first step to making a highly watchable and shareable video is the hook. In the first 3-5 seconds of your video, you need to grab people’s attention as they’re scrolling through the news feed. You can do this either by placing your best footage at the beginning or using a strong headline.
This is a case where you don’t want to save your best for last. When you’re making videos for social media, you need to frontload your best stuff. The first few seconds are when all of the magic happens”.
