Fifty Ways To Build Your Instagram Community – 2018 Edition – SOLD OUT

February 26 @ 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

- £15

Hosted by Jess Siggers (@Porthjess), Photographer, Instagram Influencer & Social Media Week Ambassador

Instagram changes so rapidly… from the introduction of Stories and Instagram Live to algorithm stress and ‘shadowbanning’, it likes to keep us on our toes. If you’re still sticking to the same Instagram rules, filters & techniques you were using in 2016, you can expect your follower count & engagement rate to be stuck in the past too! Instagram is now bigger than Twitter and your business needs it, which is why Instagram now holds its own at global Social Media Week events among the other big guns such as Facebook and Linked In. But no fear… Jess Siggers obsesses over the latest community-growing Instagram tips, tricks & techniques so you don’t have to.

During an hour’s workshop, Jess will explain:

  • Going back to basics: maximising your homepage so people hit that follow button
  • The Three C’s To Success: Curation, cohesion and consistency
  • How to make an ally out of the Explore page
  • How to beat the algorithm without the use shady practices…
  • Why bots & comment pods are bad news! (see above)
  • Tips for successful Instagram Stories
  • Organic content vs sponsored ads
  • Other tricks Jess has used in building both her community to 43.5k and her IGers Bristol community to 20k (and how both continue to grow daily)
