Facebook and YouTube remain the two largest social media channels when it comes to number of users, but Instagram is close behind at number six (after WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and WeChat)—which means it’s an essential platform to be on if you want to raise brand awareness, whether it’s business or personal.
However, Instagram is a complicated platform that requires marketers, entrepreneurs, and brand owners to devise complex strategies in order to find success. Has anyone figured out the perfect formula by now? Not really—but there are services that can offer their wisdom and expertise to help you grow your Instagram audience quickly and efficiently.
How does it work?
Instead of using generated bot accounts, SocialUpgrade is a management service that helps you expand your account’s reach organically. After signing up, you surrender your profile to a growth expert who leverages advanced targeting techniques to connect with new followers.
Think of it this way: if Instagram was a game, then partnering with SocialUpgrade is like having someone replace you who thoroughly knows the rules, the best strategies, and understands what it takes to win. Working with SocialUpgrade means working with a real person who knows what they are doing.
What are these advanced targeting practices, you ask? They include finding potential followers via hashtags, competitors, locations, and blacklisting. Finding people or making yourself visible with hashtags can be a trial-and-error endeavor, but your growth manager knows which ones are most effective for augmenting your brand.
Perhaps you are a local operation searching for potential customers nearby, or want to tap into a competitor’s existing audience—SocialUpgrade can help you with that, too. Some accounts are also better left alone, so blacklisting can keep you from interacting with channels that would ultimately harm you.
Between following and unfollowing the right people, responding to comments, answering direct messages, re-sharing user-generated content, posting intriguing content, composing relevant captions, scheduling the best times to post, and more, executing a successful Instagram strategy can be overwhelming and time-consuming.
You have a business to run or a brand to create, so you do not always have the time, patience, money, or energy for all of these intricacies. Handing your account over to a SocialUpgrade expert frees up your time to focus on other aspects of your brand while you sit back and watch your Instagram audience boom.
What are the other perks?
SocialUpgrade offers two plans, Standard and Turbo. The former costs $39 per month, which includes targeted audience outreach, real growth, a tailored strategy, and is safe and secure to use. The Turbo package for $99 per month offers similar features, but SocialUpgrade doubles your exposure to attract as much as three times the amount of traffic and engagement than the Standard subscription (which already promises a significant amount of engagement than you were experiencing beforehand).
SocialUpgrade’s customer service representatives are easily reachable, and Turbo package subscribers receive “priority support” for any issues or concerns. Even if you change your Instagram goals halfway through your campaign, your partnering growth manager is prepared to handle your requests and expand your presence online.
And don’t worry—SocialUpgrade is safe to use. You may have heard about growth businesses like Instagress being shut down, but SocialUpgrade does its best to work within Instagram’s constraints and keeps your account secure. If you are curious about results, Brandon Taron, owner of Taron Photography, says:
“SocialUpgrade has really elevated my social media presence by giving me real feedback on building my body of work with my photography. The ability to target similar material as well as knowing who your competitors are is second to none… Thomas, who’s head of growth management for SocialUpgrade, has been very attentive throughout the entire process to ensure maximum results will be met.”
Instagram is a sophisticated platform that can be difficult to navigate for amateur users. Instead of spending all of your energy on social media marketing when you have a brand to create (and other channels to pay attention to, like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest), why not let a growth management expert take do all the work for you?
