Instagram Marketing for Beginners

Amazon $5.00

Jenny Li's book is one of the most useful items I've ever helped promote.  The information is accurate, timely and easy to follow.  It's no wonder that with 19 reviews it stands at 4.8 Stars on Amazon.  I was not aware had such a vast following - 150 million users.  Tapping into such a huge resource would be beneficial for anyone with a product - authors take note.  Ms. Li takes the reader step-by-step through the process of building a loyal following.  I highly recommend this book and I'm working to implement the principles myself - watch for future updates on my Instagram successes.

Synopsis: Published February 2014
Do you know Instagram has 150 million users per month? Are you taking advantage of this free social network to market your products? Do you know Instagram has a different demographics than Facebook?

Instagram has been one of the biggest social networks. If you are considering using Instagram to promote or market your business, you need to know the mindset of your followers and how to build a relationship with them, and how to get more followers.

*** It doesn't matter how wonderful your product is or how much effort you spent on marketing when you don't have real, good followers. ***

This book provides specific insights from followers as to what they like or, even more importantly, what they don’t like. It also includes interviews with successful entrepreneurs who have thousands or tens of thousands of followers regarding how they build relationships with their followers, and how they promote their businesses on Instagram.

Amazon 5 Star Review by Laura Scott:
"I was skeptical about buying this book, because there are so many people out there selling fake follower services and books about strategies that only work temporarily. Being a business owner and freelance designer, it is extremely important for me to have a great public image, and I always thought that having more followers was important. Thanks to this book I've learned what is truly important, and exactly how to get it: quality followers!

When I found this book I was extremely happy to find that it was filled with very useful information, and not a bunch of nonsense that wasn't going to help me gain followers. I especially loved the chapter that covers the "lingo" of Instagram. Through my friends and Google, I have figured out a few of the hashtag meanings, but there are so many that I didn't recognize. Another aspect about hashtags that I didn't understand was how to make my own. I always just went with the flow of using hashtags of whatever came to mind. For example, if it was a picture of a kitten, I'd think: #kitten #kitty #cute #adorable etc. After reading this book, I'll definitely be redefining the way I look at hashtags.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, whether you're a business owner or someone looking for more information about Instagram. The author is extremely insightful into how Instagram works and she will definitely get you more quality followers!"
