Freelancing is getting bigger and bigger and so the competition too! Nowadays you have to market your skill too in order land more freelancing gigs.
Instagram is never looked to promote any freelancing skills as it is a photography based. But I think otherwise. Instagram is for visuals. WIth great use of photos, texts, and artwork one can easily generate freelancing gigs with Instagram.
How to land freelancing gigs with Instagram?
1. Create an exclusive account for your skill
Create a separate account for your freelancing skill. Come up ith a catchy name and go for it. If you have a website dedicated to your skill, then name that account like your domain name.
2. Promote the skill using beautiful artwork
Instagram is all about great visuals pleasing to the eyes. Create infographics or animations explaining what you do and how you do it.
3. Use quotes
Quotes are popular on Instagram. Blend them with your skill.
4. Don’t forget to use Instagram Stories and Instagram Live
Use those features of Instagram to speak your mind. There are more chances of user engagement when you go live as Instagram notifies followers when someone goes live.
5. Tags are very important
Don’t be lazy to tag your photos. Add many many tags as possible.
6. Connect with people who share the same skill as yours
Make friends with like-minded people and benefit from their followers. Use Instagram Direct to reach out and create a rapport with top influencers in your field.
7. Publish more often
This is not done. You can’t post only a few times and be done with it.
8. Share knowledge
Be open to enlighten your followers n sharing real knowledge and be talkative. Give away something free so that people can remember you and see your profile as an authority in your field of skill.
