This is such a great question. The key thing to keep in mind when it comes to organic social media marketing is that it is the long game. By that I mean, without "paying to play" on Instagram (and other platforms), growing your audience organically is a slow and steady process. 

Here are a few things to keep focused on as you build your organic social media presence on Instagram:

  1. Stay consistent with your posting. Organic social media does not work if you post something here and there. The best way to do this is to have a monthly content calendar and execute it.
  2. Make sure you've done your hashtag research and are incorporating a good mix of hashtags with every post. And remember to include your branded hashtag too! For example, #faithandhonesTee or #AmpUpMyBiz.
  3. You also want to make sure you are incorporating all of the following throughout your monthly content strategy: going live, posting stories, IGTV, and reels.
These are a few of the basics and there are more advanced methods once these are nailed down. You're welcome to join our upcoming free masterclass as well, Behind-the-Scenes Secrets to Social Media Success. We'll be hosting it in our Facebook group. Here's the link to join the group:
