Nine Steps to Increase Your Instagram Engagement

The engagement rate of Instagram varies from industry-to-industry. According to the HubSpot’s Instagram Engagement Report, posts on the platform generate 23% more engagement than Facebook.

HubSpot contributor Flori Needle has shared a nine-step guide to help you improve your Instagram engagement.

She says, “There is debate among marketers on the best way to calculate your Instagram engagement rate, as different industries define success in different ways. Your preferred method depends on your goals as a brand or influencer.

Calculating Instagram engagement rate for brands

This formula is best for brands on Instagram because it considers the number of people who have seen a piece of content (impressions) rather than the total number of followers.
formula to calculate brand instagram engagement rate
Brands typically convert more leads via exposure first, rather than follower count. When branded advertisements get viewed, engagement rates go up, especially if they follow the advertisements to Instagram profiles and become followers. Note that Instagram accounts need to be public Business Profiles to see impressions”.

Nine Ways to Improve Your SEO Performance

An effective SEO strategy enables you to explore and utilize unprecedented opportunities to grow your business. But to keep performing well, you need to continue your efforts to synchronize your SEO efforts with the changing search algorithms.

Terakeet contributor Jonas Sickler has shared nine useful ways to help you improve your website’s SEO performance.

Sickler says, “With SEO strategy, it’s important to think holistically about your website. You need high-quality content, and you need high-quality domains pointing at your web pages.

First, though, you should make sure that your structural and technical foundation is rock solid. Here’s how to do that:

1. Organize your site taxonomy

Is your website easy to navigate? Is the hierarchical structure logical? URL structure matters. Each folder and subfolder in your URL provides search engines with more context around what’s on the page, and how the URL relates to the overall website.

When organizing your site, pay attention to information architecture and enable site visitors to easily find what they want”.

Nine Ways to Create Useful Content

Your content needs to be authentic and useful. Your audience will share it only if they find it worth using. Visually appealing content can help you to catch your audience’s attention and reach your conversion goals.

Content Marketing Institute’s Jodi Harris has shared nine ways to create visual content that your readers would love to share.

Harris says, “Considering how rapidly visual trends come and go and how often new creative platforms and capabilities emerge, it’s always worth taking a fresh look at ways to let your brand’s photos, videos, and graphics do the talking. Below, I’ve compiled a collection of best-practice tips from some of the industry’s most creative and design-minded content experts, along with a few best-in-show examples to inspire you to put your brand’s own vision on display.

1. Align your visual story with your content marketing strategy

Posting a photo or video online and waiting for the business offers to start rolling in is not an effective strategy. Neither is hinging your visual content success on creating the next viral phenomenon.

Like any content marketing format, you should have a compelling rationale for communicating with your audience through visual storytelling, as well as a clear plan for turning views into meaningful marketing results”.

Nine-Step Guide to Creating SEO-Friendly URLs

URLs that are designed to meet the needs of users and searchers are known as SEO friendly URLs. Such URLs make it easier for search engines to find your content.

Ahrefs contributor Joshua Hardwick has published a nine-step guide to help you create SEO-friendly URLs.

Hardwick says, “There’s rarely much point changing existing URL slugs as it takes too much time. You’re also likely to do more harm than good.

So let’s focus on new posts and pages.

If you did keyword research and created content around that keyword, jump to step 6.

If you created your page without doing keyword research (which is never a good idea if you want to rank), follow the steps in order.

  1. Start with your page title
  2. Remove special characters
  3. Remove numbers
  4. Remove superfluous information
  5. Boil it down to a keyword“.
