Hey everyone! First question how is everyone doing this January? Me, I have had a hella time getting back into the swing of things AND I am still not really sure what day of the week it is!

However, this week my oldest son went back to school >> finally, yas<< and I was able to do some catch-up work as well as re-open my IG services for new trials. If you want someone to help you with your Instagram ( go from dabbling to strategizing ) and are serious about growing your Instagram Presence and getting leads from your efforts on Instagram I might be the gal to help you with that! You can find out by applying for one of my IG takeovers. >> here’s the form <<  

The trial is 24 hours – and then we book a call to discuss the results and talk about how I can help you. I only have a few spots to fill so you don’t want to miss out.

Okay, so now that shameless self-promotion is out of the way, let’s talk about what YOU can do to increase your results with Instagram this year. Today I thought I would share with you my 2 favorite tools for Instagram and tell you WHY I love them.

First of all, let’s talk about Hypeauditor!

This is a tool that was designed to help business owners identify quality influencers to work with. Hypeauditor is great for a variety of reasons though. 1st because it gives you additional insights on your Instagram audience ( who is following you, where they live, what other content they are interested in ) and because it also tells you quite bluntly, how much of your audience is actually “authentic” active accounts. The 2nd reason why hype-auditor is fantastic is that it also tells you how you are doing with Instagram, in comparison to other accounts in the same niche’ as you. It gives you an engagement rating – and shows you what % of audience your posts are reaching. I LOVE this report and I share it with all of my IG management clients!

Hypeaudits do normally cost $100 for 50 credits, but you can run one on your own account FREE if you use my link here.

Another tool that I use with my Instagram clients and that I personally swear by is called Tailwind. Now I know there has been a lot of viral buzz about Tailwind for Pinterest, but personally – I love Tailwind for Instagram more! Tailwind for Instagram is THE BEST post scheduling tool that I have found. It also allows you to see additional analytic stats on your Instagram account. In addition to being a great pre-scheduler and post planner ( yes it auto posts to your feed and your stories ) Tailwind also has a feature called “Tailwind Tribes” that allows you increase the traffic to your Instagram profile, through collaborative sharing. Think of it as a level up on IG pods or engagement swarms.

If you’d like to Tailwind for Instagram out for a spin, NORMALLY it will cost you $15 per month but you can try it for 1 month FREE on me with this link.

Want more? If you are looking for even more helpful IG growth tools I also have a full toolbox you can get for free. This includes both Tailwind and Hypeauditor as well as some other gizmos and gadgets that I love.

Okay, so that’s what I have for you today, i’d love to know what you thought about these two awesome tools! You can always start a convo with me by clicking here or drop me a message on Instagram.
