Why I hate Instagram Follow Groups (& what you should do instead)

I have had a lot of messages on Instagram across the last 2 weeks asking me to join ‘Follow Groups’

I wanted to share why I hate them, why I think they are a waste of your time and what you should do instead if you want to grow a following you can actually convert to sales!

Obviously I understand that reaching 10k followers is a massive Instagram milestone and opens up the benefits of Profit Tools like the Swipe Up function.  It also gives you ‘Influence’, but this means very little if you have influence in front of an audience that isn’t targeted to the result you can create for them. Your audience won’t engage and they certainly won’t buy, which is the goal I’m guessing you are seeking from hitting 10k followers in the first place!

So if we strip back to the basics… Instagram is about building your brand, right?… So you can build a following of people who know, like and trust you, so that they see you as an authority and trust to buy from you when you post an offer.

Can you guarantee that these random people in Follow Groups are going to build you a following that is targeted?  No.

Do you risk creating traffic that is misaligned?  Yes.

Do you risk following a bunch of people that screws up your algorithm score and looks bad?  Yes!!  (I made this mistake and am still trying to unfollow everyone!)

And let’s be honest.  Instagram can be a drain at the best of times in terms of your time, money in ads (if they flop) and your mental sanity!

Wouldn’t you prefer to grow your following with less risks?

With a stronger chance of growing a following that is targeted?  Who are curious about what you have to offer? Who respond to you with warmth (and at all) when you reach out to them in the DM?

Shall I break down how you do this?

  1. Maximise the Profit Tools available to you before you hit 10k followers!  These are the power of your Bio & Call to Action, so people click your link!  Your goal is to UP profile visits, so you get more clicks!
  2. Master your Newsfeed posts, stories and meaningful comments to drive traffic to your profile and increase follows
  3. Drive Influenced Traffic – engage with people who are your idea client/customer avatar – this is a BIGGIE!
  4. Utilise your IG direct messenger.  It is here you can connect with people directly, find out if they have a problem you can solve and make a call to action directly!

I have two absolutely free tools that can help you undertake these 4 steps to:

  • Increase visits to your profile
  • Increase clicks on your link
  • Increase your targeted followers on a daily basis
  • Convert them consistently to clients/customers in the DM!

10 Things to Sacrifice TODAY for more HAPPINESS!

Recently I went live on my Facebook profile with 4 things you need to sacrifice to be happier in your life!  Check it out here!

I promised to share 6 more things you have to sacrifice to get happier NOW!

And here they are…

5. Give up HUSTLING!

Believe me, you think that by working every hour you are going to get more financial freedom, but it’s likely not true.  A really powerful exercise is to write a list of everything you are working hard for, which you feel you aren’t getting/don’t have already and then next to that list ask yourself honestly what you are not giving.  It’s likely that most of the work that you are working hard on isn’t the world-class work that will make the shifts you seek.  However, the world-class work challenges you, creates fear or puts you outside of your comfort zone.

Decide if you want the balance in your life that will bring you more happiness, which in turn will bring you more abundance and then commit to making some changes.

6.  Give up BLAMING!

Take this phrase, tattoo it to your brain and say every time you find yourself looking for someone to blame about what’s going wrong in your life…

Everything is happening around me, not to me, I can control how I respond!

Then look at what you can GIVE to improve your situation.

7.  Give up trying to PLEASE OTHERS

When you can trust that all your innate power is within you and be true to a life that fits you, you won’t need the approval of others.  It won’t matter anymore.  Not in a selfish way, but in a fulfilled way.  Your happiness shouldn’t be hinged on the love, appreciation or approval of others.

8.  Give up the SHOES THAT DON’T FIT

This is the first step to finding fulfilment and happiness from within you… Find out who you are in all your unique beauty.

9.  Give up the need to be RIGHT

Defending a point of view is exhausting and lowers our vibe.  Give up the need to be right to defend your peace of mind.

10. Give up CONTROL

There is little we can actually control in life, as I adhered to above, life is always happening around us.  Feeling like we have little control over our life makes us feel really unhappy.  This is just one area of a comprehensive scorecard I have to help you see what is making you feel unhappy in your life.
