What's up everyone so happy wednesday to you guys Listen and thank you guys we're here today at today's show we are We'll get into how to get 10,000 Instagram followers per week and not in The month is not a year I am going to share a few of the strategies I have used recently My Instagram grows it blows up first for everyone Thanks Thank you Follow me if You don't follow me @ thechrisdo and everyone is here if you guys Have a question if there is something for you you wanna know just bother me interrupting me It's totally fine if I don't like you just say ignore you progress Well how do you get 10,000 followers per week on Instagram first I'm going I tell you a little story.
The story this, challenged my professional community It's about 280 people at the moment. I set a goal for two weeks and wanted to I usually take part in my challenges but I said Well I'll do that too so my goal was to get 10,000 followers in 2 weeks that She was my enemy and preceded math so what should I do to get it 10,000 follows in two weeks, I figured I needed to post twice a day and give Get the average 405 following the suggested suggested now before the point in time that I had Posted 1 time every 3 times roughly 22 weeks you know it was 3 days Very rarely did I really think this one but have to think that I might Will fail I want to go even in failure anyway we learned on the first day I went Post I only posted one post that day No Well it got off really bad I was such a bad thing and it took me six to eight hours to do it first Post was a difficult circular post okay. The next day I told myself this is not good We have to get two jobs a day so I said you can't eat until you're done Your pie until that day I had a late lunch 2:30 pm I posted it and felt a bit Weird I was thinking as if I was working on something in a shorter period of time Will it affect the quality and number of the following? The quality of the post The number followed to my surprise she did not, and I knew I needed to get another One I don't mind I run a company I talk to employees only There is a lot of things going on and I need to shorten the time So what I learned at the time in two weeks of posting twice a day I'm going to share with you now so let's get into that you guys excited So yes, thank you.
All right. There is some mass participation that I love Which let us enter it now from here, a large follower of Instagram and a great follower Like over 5,000 raise your hand over 5,000 Oh, we're okay We are in the right groove then fine it has more than 2000 only one follow Someone who is good for you. Look at you oh well really I love it for that oh all Young people achieve what they do already have more than two thousand Followed she kills her Well, now I have to say III This took Me over a year to get five thousand followed so what I'm telling you is It will look like clickbit but I am going to share what works for me and I hope so It will work for you and if you don't get the full amount I'll give you Money Back Okay Here we go let's get into now all right before I go Dive into this I have to talk a little bit about how the social or platforms work How do I think it works we must understand something okay what to do All social platforms want to do this wants you to spend more time on the app It is true that we know that it is a competition there are more and more oval first eyeballs Don't spoil that fee and so much of this morning's tea they want more Eyeballs are seeing their own content that we know they want to boost adoption too What do they want you to embrace Adopt that okay that's okay It's still early everyone who breaks is awake, well we're fine, they want to adopt it New logical features change the algorithm and that is About the technique that I will get about the algorithm because I will be They do things then change the algorithm to promote this You guys get this somebody mocking me like you can't Lane this stock ever and probably true it's a lame stock Well they want Promotion that they will be promoting new features so it's important for everyone You have to pay attention to what changes every time they learn a new feature Use it to see what makes it work and what doesn't Of the new features we are going to focus today on Instagram But this generally applies to the type of whatever social platform you remember when 3D pics appeared on Facebook and then everyone was seeing 3D pics and It was like how they do it so what they're doing is coming up with new features for it Early adopters are people who are very active in their program and they are the only ones Play it randomly until someone pays attention until some features are available For some people, for some people this is not what is happening here Well, they will choose their best content creators and usually convert them Get it on and serve it first but what new thing are you guys SEEN ON Instagram SEE WHAT SOCIAL FEEDING MASSAGE NOW Carousel thank you angel carousel so carousel that way They are used up and I don't know when they changed but again on the first day Remember that two carousels are limited to like three slices or something You cannot publish this issue but for whatever reason they decide, let's go Down to ten, so it's not a brand new feature but they changed it a little bit and me I always felt weird because I was very aware of the network you guys know InstagramAll Right Network Instagram A network for you we want it all beautiful because we are Graphic designers and we very OCD wanted to make it pretty pretty The picture and like it bothered me like me I have to plan all my posts Think about this and I wanted to post it multiple things but I have considered if I publish Often it would have hurt me that the carousel is designed to perfection People who like to teach are good at designing to tell a story The time is perfect because now I don't have to wait and not number All these things I can no longer last 10 at once and the first question People ask me how good is the ideal number for what is a carousel What is the answer to that 10 you guys who said so okay Wait, did you see it sounded like a woman said you get really high The playing field as well did all right 10 this and why should we post 10 does anyone I know why yes this is so smart if they give you 10 to use right if I'll give you 10 to use Why not use 10 It makes perfect sense but think about This is a criticism of everyone interacting until your engagement continues Even thinking that the more swipes the more time On Instagram, it makes perfect sense what happens is the algorithm The content dictates and you have to know this is happening everywhere Happening on Facebook YouTube Linkedin Happens Right Because Why We are concerned worried about this we must worry about this and that The ROI on your investment means investment is a time of creativity and energy You get inspiration you want to do something then you like The world gotta love you this will go viral you didn't think so before This will go viral there and it's like cockroaches on social networks The media liked people like him and everything related to him Yours this is not good and this is not good good return on investment so we are I know this.
We don't want to put much time and energy into this because it is It gets frustrated if you do things and you don't even get our ROI To play with the algorithm you can fight it if you want but ignore the algorithm At your risk a small last thing to note the big one Three interesting things happen all right now you guys know who The big three on social media is I'm Linkedin Right Now Let me write this Well we're not going to get into it yet you are right but yeah Linkedin Yes well there is one you miss Here's tuk tuk okay i have to ignore coz i'm a teenager is it tic yes yes everything Tick right to wait for Twitter Yes twitter twitter i haven't figured this out yet you youtube thank you So much you guys nice it is our main channel you guys just one minute so well Youtube Youtube Right Youtube is owned by Google, we know that Facebook owns Instagram that's why I put them all here who owns LinkedIn Oh no you can't answer this question for you you haven't been here okay Microsoft is fine until the real battle right now takes place between these three Companies have a lot of money Microsoft you know that they have a lot of money however You know Google has a lot of money so this is where I want to cover my bet Because these others may disappear, but these others, I think, have had enough Pocket There are deep enough pockets will stay in the game so me I guess there's this cool thing that's happening just me On the zero data just brain crystals I looked into my brain and said this Happening I'll expect this right now until Gary Vaynerchuk does all of this A time when a group of wilderness makes predictions of those that come true Cuts for what happened remember when 2006 When you said this, remember that in 2025 When I said this only works if not we will delete this video fine Here's the thing that's going on and I love this part Not when there is one player because they have a monopoly they are only somewhat Screw you right we own all your content doing what we want and now You have to pay other people that are your friends just to see your situation Now check this out since Microsoft they are not sleeping at their wheel Not the sleeping giant knows the game an antisocial right I'm just waiting Apple has to answer that maybe I'll buy it I don't know they're not getting it An interesting right because we need companies that compete against it Each other to fight for us, see I think a shift is taking place From platforms to creators of you guys coz look at this you notice this Direction that has been happening there are a lot of videos about this at the moment Burning YouTube Anyone here create videos on YouTube and You don't get the views yes yes yes so you are the content on YouTube and what you are not OG creator or love to kill her to the rhythm of the unger kind of Difficult now because they changed the algorithm to offer more content More people, the more content creators are trying to democratize but that People spent too much time trying to build the audience or not Seeing this lovely ROI so what's happening is now Gary Vaynerchuk talking about This LinkedIn is the best in my opinion Next to their organic social reach until they even earn enough money They feel they have enough traction to compete and then they will Certainly money because they are at home work to be in the right action for it What happens now is what they want to entice the creators to post you guys The content is organically original on the platform that's good news for us There is more to sheriff in town now thats mean if you don't like it The growth you get then YouTube or Facebook moves elsewhere To Instagram or to LinkedIn fine historical boring you get the top ten Thousand bro followed well I'll get there any questions so far live good audience Post any questions more than there is no how we thank you all right let's reserve Oh my God what is that okay now of course you will say well of Doesn't make content for you I don't make it for yourself I know it is Don't show any pictures of you eating a thousand selfies unless you are Like so beautiful and some of you guys I don't say all right if you are Then you use what God gave you, use what your mother gave you, okay but Otherwise, you have to start serving the public and we have to get away This idea of the customer is fine the audience the power of influence Money here leverage here is okay because when you go after clients, Chasing them all your life built by an audience like you will You show you might even buy a hat, badge, cap, or something This is kinda cool, really neat and what happens is people just don't I understand this when you serve others and people say to others Organically and other people have the power to hire you to give you money Paying for a sponsored job to give you a dealership posting here is a small aspect Years ago a story I used to call publishers like Oh I need help Publish a book Yes Write a proposal to write an outline Like its okay now because I did a publisher follower and audience She recently called me one of the biggest companies and called me in the design books and he said Chris hello how are you do you have an audience we would like to help you spread Good book I don't know if I need it now See power transfer I love this so many people complain about the ills Times change, but they change and whenever one door closes Opens another door this opportunity for you Well even the audience for who they are You're targeting okay so let's take a look at this people here so we have to know who they are The audience is our audience well we know their creators are coming From all levels of design the scope to that I wouldn't call it graphic Designers but their creators that we know many of them are self-taught Lots of self-taught people here make some noise from their hearing A self-taught person sees all truth change, and so are my expectations It's like in 10 years the idea of this degree isn't a degree that it won't even matter anymore Now I still don't know I don't feel safe about it until we know You taught yourself a lot of men in the transition you are moving Maybe like you were a career changer anyone here you did career hangman Another thing and now well you guys know how this right works for you Make some noise Yes Thank you very much Well you move on as we know That and some of the guys you guys I'm just going to say is how you spell how baffling I felt cheated, you guys, cheated on you.
I went to design school Truly, you were disenfranchised and I know that you were promised beautiful creativity A career you can pay off your student loan in five years slows that bill Right I see rolling eyes I get it right you are really deprived I went for it The school sold you something but didn't get what you paid for it The problem is until we know it about you and about us. I know you are an international audience Men and women are all that kind of thing so this is what and then what It is what you need, you guys need what you need with just that Getting to know Europe Identifying you the public are what they need What do you guys need so I guess I know what you need You need to get clients that you need to make because you got the money Life is part of helping us with our rightful mission.
One billion creative people make money Make money doing what they love with that simple Thus how do you get a good customer you must know alright so it makes sense Tree that makes sense you didn't get it and it's known to be cheaper Effective way I know how to recognize to set it off socially what we are Today we talk about how to blow social see so you want to know With an accessible social right, anyone can do it from anywhere and with you Why do you need a social detonation Well you are why I need to be driving me Want to verify that I know something that's logical what else why Why do you want to know this thing you share knowledge Love you want to share inspiration, thank you, anything else Those are good what yes achieving, accomplishing Yes, full photography fulfillment.
I know the internet is like a police force If you guys spell something wrong in an attempt to do a live show, what happens Well so far we kind of know now we know you are the creator we know The public so I will give you two demands okay two tasks and loopholes Well if she thought of you what she is trying to do with your life every day One day if you sit down and think about it for a second and Seth Godin talks about this; you can choose your audience from what crowd it is Your name is what Sabine Sabine is today In your life as I try to imagine you love what you do Well, do you have any children? Are you married or are you celibate? Help center designers we met well center for designers Before yes we did now know you yes, more like to see you Need to hide I think we've met before Well Sabine No, no no, it's okay Sabine Okay so I try to think of you about life, and if I could talk to you, it would be Easiest but you can use your imagination, creative people have rich imagination We are usually busy thinking how bad we are and how the world hates He says use this imagination for something else Think about another person for a second thinking about one day in Sabine's life What you are trying to do to get this position of four designers right then time Set it as soon as you get to understand it What a gap like how can we help Sabine so Sabine tells us such thing She tries to do what she has not been able to do yet she is getting it Mike I love that okay you can keep it say Mike Sabin go ahead 10,000 Instagram and YouTube Followers Alright oh there's 10,000 followers on how close they are You're on YouTube I just started so I'm about 2000 in 2010 okay so you are 2008 All right yeah ok well I've been creating videos for YouTube for a few years now So I didn't take advantage I really need help right I must help you know okay fine So there is a gap like a wrench there is ok so maybe you need Learn all sorts of things like what kind of content presents itself when it poses how What gets posted is opinions on how an algorithm works for all this kind of thing So I'm going to make a list of all those things you see to me just yeah coz you are Your audience is thinking about it right Okay well ok I'm totally done what I'm going to do is make a list Of the gaps okay and now that is starting to become a roadmap for content Strategy Until Gaps Live Here Now This is something that you may have a lot Challenges in your life I cannot solve for all of them so I am looking for what I am My interests are where I am strong in any kind The skills I have are thinking about those things okay Does that make sense and I will list okay so I would love to teach my own The backgrounds in the video I make the video right I enjoy helping the people I want to help Others have read a lot and read about it, like you know until I come down Your audience is okay so you know the audience well because you are talking to them Him all the time through the right axis so if you are able to build your list That will be your content strategy so what I'm going to start with is action Highest impact with least effort first give the priority you've seen it Effect of Voltage Graph You know what I'm talking about everyone look right Online unfortunately well, you want to do the things that The easiest to do this is the greatest results everyone first I understand that sometimes you spoil that so we do the hard things to do I don't know why this gives us the lowest results and then we feel depressed like It doesn't work, quit.
We give up the easy things I want to say People for whom I'm too lazy I just want to do the easiest thing possible if it is Not working I will put in more effort and I will continue to increase the effort until I get The results i want ok do we get any comments or Questions so far on YouTube so far good Going on son Oh Jana Tommy it's like Chris got it on the number of people They watch inside 300,200 okay strange camera roll we are now on I need To talk to him this little guy hurts 220 I'm trying to help you 10,000 Follows Tell a Friend Now I will stop recording into two parts Minutes if you don't tell two friends well, thanks a lot serious Are we going to stop the live broadcast after that we are for 24 hours Don't do it don't do it well Sabine says she lives like busy Life doesn't take it right away for 48 hours Okay 48 hours okay now I tried to find out like who created this thing but this Very well known within the marketing community right ai da guys Heard about AI da Heard about ABC right What else ABC always closes or always is cool ai da What does AI da mean for Marketing Anyone know it's not like a disabled person The thing is not that the graphic arts guild we know it is not that we know Oh Oh my God, nobody knows that Sabine tells us brain freeze Yeah i heard about it so that's good you don't know this because here it is The thing is if you share something new you are today then you will walk away Some value that my goal you have gave me to invest your time and Attention I need to return it as in many right then we develop Nexus until the first thing that is mentioned of the mic interest YES first One is great interest attracting my attention and tell me why should I care why should I care Care okay logical Why should I care Give me a reason for this this benefit This is about them and not you I don’t know why you put a period there Damn don't calm down or not you're okay about them not you're okay I'm willing to We understand this is critical a while ago I tweeted Saying, I want to write a new book, one hundred books that changed my life Then I think that these martyrs knew me the response to change the title of Book 100 Books that will change your life like a very good genius think so guy Marty Marty was or it could be Blair I'm sorry I'm sorry if I messed it up well This is what I'm talking about.
The benefit we need to get their attention They are victims of this all the time guys go to CNN or Fox then Try to follow a story and they display ads below as if you wouldn't Believe how a child star has turned and you are like I'm trying to be Star but i am so compelled to click that stupid thing pay attention to how They write for you to get your attention pull you inward Even if you do a quick search of like the most effective addresses you get a list Really fast and includes words like How You Like How to Get 10,000 Follow on Instagram the week you see how this works Well the next stage is the benefit. It's very important. Very well My attention if you don't come forward and give me more and gain attention So the title grabs my attention the subtitle and body copy Built interest and if you fall here repeatedly and you have to continue building This is okay attracting my interest so you gotta give me more okay now Your Instagram relates to a total of eight slides to give me more Okay and I'll tell you why it's eight in a while later and not ten we'll even get to it The magic number is eight men I want everyone to know is like infinity It's just eight, think of eight, think fine eight eight great eight eight Okay, great, four plus four, eight okay, next is the wish, okay Mention that what you're trying to do is get them to imagine now changing their lives Turn this what you are trying to do, wish okay and last Make lights working camera teacher an action that wants them to do something And the way they talk about this wants to be given step by step Help if you can go to your mailbox to pull this open the envelope I write this and put $ 5 into a 25-cent put down 50-cent stamp and drop into the mailbox before Tuesday they are clear that this is effective marketing direct marketing to all The kind of things that I want to change these things out of desire are fine I want To change it for social media What is Desire I'll just give you this The thing is probably gonna work, maybe I will change then I will tell you give me The details are okay and I'll tell you why that's the only difference otherwise It's AI just like it's said here now you know you have 10 max The slides are okay.
First let me signs of change here questions so far Everyone is fine guys its ok all right yeah thank you yeah all right Let's go down here up to the first slide in a carousel, you learned Pull me in This is your magnet This is all it is A mixture of type and image that you have to do to get my attention There is a formula here if you can do it properly I have been working A little lazy, I just use a kind, then my wife says honey I can't say what It's all kind everywhere so she told me to put pictures so I went on Internet and I found this picture and I was like what I would do with it That and this is this woman's lip She saw it and it's like piercing a fine piece of paper Sorry for the show. Okay okay I got it then put some answer Remember what I just wrote something in here and everything was pink This is now my best post that has 21000 likes for volume Really good crowd that has already earned me over a thousand It follows in one post that allows for much better performance I know you hate me I know and this is not so Even count the traffic you bring in for others to see or be seen Another carousel so it helped me out a lot This is a very provocative photo It's mysterious so I think these are the kinds of things that are formulated for you You want to use it not complicated because it's almost like monotonous The whole singles are pink in color like pink and pink and it works a combination of Image for typing really works and that's what they're all good at We do it for other people we just don't do a good job ourselves This is the attention part.
If not, make me here. Goodbye. Tell me the benefit What's in it for me Why should I care Well now here's the interesting thing About the rest of this I talked about this before with your professional community You have to push them past Slide Three This is critical, well there the momentum is building here if they can't Skip the third slide if it's broken here I don't think Post will work fine on the algorithm I will guess that no taste of clicking lost me So how can you lose me? You don't tell me anything new, honesty or Don't tell me too much because there is a flush if you think about it when you were On Instagram, you can swipe up like 1001 1002 if another 10 seconds Swipe I'll get stuck and then don't want to do that don't get stuck in it The slip calling me now is okay, okay, well, okay, it's like it wasn't My wife is like Palisades on fire once again or have you answered so well Here we are now making that mistake before I put the most intense ones Information is valuable right here.
Guess what happens. Okay They read everything well we finished you gave me everything I even needed to know The value is here somewhere okay so that's like a story there There is a car collision spurt we are jumping into the story of what happened and We start moving the camera just you know what happened so we see like One of the wheels falls down there, some of us smoke each other upside down Deer see what this is so we're going to The car that we build now like what what happens then we move on To an open bottle of alcohol what happened then there is a twist Usually here so nothing is what it sounds like Then there are some bullet holes, oh a little more see how you like pool People now you guys ain't you guys but they're all just not perfect No yes you know that okay men don't do their deal Thats but I'm just telling the story the way I want it okay so this is where you are Most of us should delve into this juice here We start logically here tell me what will be valuable It is true and what you want to do is you want to learn, tell me something I am I never knew before or told me a joke Make it funny entertain me fine that's what you want to do here and I tested this theory, researching and reading books Marketing and pricing all the same and they gave me very good reviews then I'm just joking on twitter somewhere and i cut it like me I wonder how it will go and how crazy as she is, she is crazy as well I'll get into a little strategy content later on as if it doesn't even need it To be your idea most of the ideas I have all the righteous come from another person Well, the only thing I want to warn you about and I'll put it The post in this is also if someone quotes them just don't take it And then leave their names on it, this is strange It creates bad energy between you and the person who wrote it due to guesswork For me at least I have some fans tagging me and starting like Shadow cast on that person and you think about it if you take someone in Another idea you are not getting the referral right is to make it as popular Once you get the popularity, track it back to the position and You are on a scumbag now doing plagiarism.
We all hate plagiarism Give credit for it doesn't hurt you, it actually helps you write something I wrote Tagged Austin Cleon I put his full name on to go with the book whatever Then he tells me private messages thank you very much Next thing I know about two weeks later is on her podcast and he said I'll send you A book, Austin, if you're watching this, haven't sent me the book yet I'm just just honest, okay right, and I have the same relationship that I have I build with a lot of authors who are similar to Thank You Ben You help me Now booksellers are all wins well so there's good steal there Bad robbery This robbery does not give attribution at all good robbery You give credit and try to steal from more than one person The last to do what you want me to do now is fine so tell them One thing they do bookmark like this comment gives them a message tell me What is one of your biggest challenges or tell me your highest performing posts Why do you think this is the case for you? Give them a reason to interact with you This is really critical or you can say oh you have a question the next day Two hours I'll answer them that way your next post is born, right Awesome.
Yeah, now back to why it's eight why it's eight because you're You basically lose two slices, the first one in the last and the right one That is why you need to focus on Magic Eight Fine How many slides to you Need to think about oh my god it's a bunch of designers how many slides you have Need to think of a much better awesome you guys great job okay Remember any questions so far, you should pass them to the third number if you can't Go through you deep into trouble until you keep light give me A little more and one thing I would like to use is when we're doing a storyboard When I was studying serial design I told them to use the talking metaphor Every time you enjoy the breath, put a comma new slide I looked at some of my earlier posts before I figured this stuff out they were so dense this is good news what I should have done was I should've Taking that one dense slide and broke it out into four slides why is that good news I have way more content to share because I don't have to put so much in ten slides this is critical this is how you can do two a day don't try to put too much in there's all obviously the opposite side which is nothing here it's like hot candy but there's nothing it feels like I'm eating something but there's nothing there okay everybody are you like I have ideas now I do know what's on this page oh there's something on this page not a lot let's recap okay we're almost at the end of this whatever I'm trying to do here let's recap guys let's summarize what do you need to do to post a day so frequency thank you frequency and consistency is key I've tested this I posted one every three weeks I got some follows I posted once a day and I've done as many as five a day guess which one gets me more follows there's no mystery believe it or not now five a day you guys are gonna faint you're like I have a job I have children to raise a spouse to argue with you know whatever I can't do five day go for two a days see what happens okay now when you post when should you post when okay you want to look at your analytics you guys know what analytics are everybody everybody here of analytics yes if you don't you need to switch to a business or creator account it's easy you just hit a button I thought it like you have to apply or something no just hit a button and it lets you do it and you get your analytics and you look at they'll give you a I think it's like Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday they'll give you a Little chart like that and then I think they tell you the time too so my time is usually around 7:00 am something like that to like 2:00 pm but I've done a test I posted at midnight I still get follows probably not a good rule of thumb for you guys and then all of a sudden it used to be Los Angeles was my highest engaged audience and then it became Indonesia Tolle pm must be a hot time for them or something that's what I'm thinking I don't know why so if you put a good piece of content quality here good put a good piece of content Out the time doesn't matter as much but try to hit it when your audience is Paying attention the next thing is you need to engage you got to engage with them okay and this is really critical so I usually reserve about one to two hours to respond to every single comment and if you've ever followed me if you ever Made a comment I either heart or I give you sarcastic answer I harass you or I give you an answer and one of those three things will happen right I literally am going through my son say what do you know I'm like hold on okay let me answer this okay all right now I'm gonna give you a The shortcut is cuz people always ask you this how many people are working in your account how many of you work on my account one me that is how is this possible and I live a highly optimized life okay I'll give you a little hack here so this is the first hack I'm gonna give you how many of you guys use an Apple device raise your hand almost I know I

Full phrases I even use them for my hashtags cuz you don't have to go and copy / paste anymore right smart right I learned it for somebody else okay so I use something like what I use biz ht1 because I have many hashtags so I use about 30 hashtags that my friend at Dave Tallis he's awesome you guys should follow him okay he does similar things as me teaching people how to grow on Instagram so it gives me about 30 hashtags boom I'm done I don't have to think about it it's awesome okay that also is the cap you cannot do more than 30 hashtags if you do more than that something funny happens so don't do more than 30 hashtags okay so this is what I'm doing right i typing API appreciate it I type of TFS thanks for sharing its optimizing my life it's all built-in no extra plugins totally free totally free is a good price right yes okay so engage with your audience why should you do This because I want to reward my audience for paying attention and after So and I always respond I tried to but I can't always I prioritize those people now here's the next beautiful thing is This is what they call kind of generative you guys know that we're generative it's kind of a fancy word right things that generate more things right something like that so like generative art like fractals you know you just keep zooming and just keeps making more stop I read the comments and if I keep seeing the same kind of comments and questions that's another carousel right I don't have my notebook here but then I just jot it down in my notebook okay so I'm an analog kind of guy in order for me to be able to post Five times a day I have a book full of ideas literally in my notebook like if You guys want to pick up an amazing notebook you can or field notes or something like that if you look at my notebook it looks something like this Right and it's very small it's like that I Draw a line across a line across I divide in half and divide it in half guess what there's my eight frames and I jot down the ideas sometimes I have the whole idea mapped out sometimes I have fragments I need to get them down and later on when you see me do my master class on this you'll see oh my god that was a note that was the carousel yes sometimes how you can get a carousel done thirty minutes because it's already been planned I want to do this here right here's another little thing I do I leave a little gap between this and my next grid and I'll tell you why all right messed that up that's horrible bad designer I leave room here so I can write little notes like I'll think about this so there's a little room for me to add other ideas without making it all messy okay so that's what I do so if you're really super good you should use both sides right and it would look like that it's gonna look amazing and when you get super famous and big Doing this becomes a really beautiful artifact that then you share – it's so generative that's how it works okay this makes sense so far reward people give them a call to action you can and next thing I'm gonna say is write something witty if you can if you're witty person but personal tell me a story in the caption it's very important there's a few people could get away without doing this like people he's had over a million follows because he Makes amazing art every day cares right a witty personal caption use the hashtags add a call to action you're gonna do really well okay let's talk about hashtags for a second I don't wanna get out of my league here you're allowed 30 hashtags okay somebody told me you've used too many it's not Hassan so I don't really know what the rule is nobody knows what's going on you some not too many but not more than thirty now there's a balance here okay when you search for hashtags you need to have a mix of high low and medium search traffic okay now you want a couple low ones like you know average search for this yields like 100k or less than okay Let's say 50k it's not a ton of people looking for that that's fine and then highs like a million-plus right it's very hard to compete against those people but it doesn't mean you shouldn't try the ones in the middle so you want a mixture of these okay do a couple low so you become really well-known for something and that's good builds traction you're teaching the algorithm and other people we're kind of related and if you don't know the the best thing I can give you a shortcut without any fancy tools look at somebody that you like that you think you want to compete against it has a good sized following look at their hashtags copy / paste into like some program and then research each one of those your goal is to be top 9 you know I'm talking about top 9 when you search for hashtags there's a magnifying glass you want to be somewhere here if you're not there's a good chance that people are not gonna look for you anywhere in there you're golden okay I didn't talk about IG TV embedding video those are all good things those are also features they want you to use I'm just super lazy that's all right so this is the fast way I know how to do this I'm pretty sure there's other things I forgot to talk about so I Opened up for questions and we'll wrap this segment up any questions so far well I have the mic yes please talking about video because I mean what's your Instagram paper specs at papers pay paper specs specter like this paper as pcs pay respects I do a lot of videos and I try to keep them under the minute yes but that's where the IT TV comes in so do I do I not do you or do you longer do you what do I go for the longer videos or not yeah so what you do is you post on IG TV and then you do some linked version on Instagram I think that's how that works right and I just saw some new announcements for premiere that they can do this auto Reese entering thing which is like whoa my god you know no Jason talked about let's talk about this for a second Adobe always picks exactly the right clip and then just do these perfect demos right and you get home you're like wait it's like looking at the cat I don't want that yeah in real life it but that's a really cool idea to do the center cut so you always want to produce content that's natively designed for this format here's the analogy that I have for you and I talked about this earlier is that radio is the dominant media form right so when they went to TV they produce TV programs like radio static camera people just read super boring and then they realize we can move the camera and we can cut and we can cross this off we can do so then TV became its own thing same thing is happening right now it's like well I used to make content like this and I'm gonna smash it into this other form it's not gonna reward you for that so you definitely want to do vertical videos and I think Instagram just recently allowed you to tell people you can rotate it so you can go widescreen now I Don't know if you guys know that sounds like huh okay we can do that but ideally You would have your videos captioned and you gotta come up with a cool headline the whole bit you gotta follow the rules okay it'll do really well any other Questions so far yes if you can't create like no hi if you can't create like jaw-dropping art every single day what if you do like one carousel of your idea and then another one of the witty personal stuff as well it better be friggin really witty okay I mean really yeah are you that witty no me neither no I'm not yeah and so what I try to do is do the jaw drop okay jaw drop is like that's a high standard suit to hit right I'd rather be clear and to give value and then if you can make it beautiful jaw-dropping and be witty that's like layers on top of the cake but the cake needs to be there first all right be clear make sure the type reads so here's another thing I want you to design for somebody who's nearsighted like our yet nearsighted right because It's hard for us to read so when you put like 12-point type because you know you're designing something on screen that's ginormous and then you look at it's like I can't read that so what I would advise you to do is zoom out of your artboard whatever program you use to kind of like roughly the size so can you read that if you can't it's not gonna work okay so make sure you're designing for the platform how it's being used everybody is using a mobile Mobile's where it's at 'not desktop yeah mobile okay another question I'll take your hubble questions and we'll wrap it up what's your name dead room what's a what we have dijeron dead Rijn okay when it comes to Commerce and you're trying to sell trying to sell product should you focus on getting follows first or selling the product audience first always I believe yeah because you build credibility yeah so yeah the rule would be give 10x take 1x okay now I've been able to grow my following I'm gonna hit 200,000 followers pretty soon here's a Really cool story people are gonna pay me they are already starting to offer me money to just post on their behalf that's all I need to do and I'm a small like relatively Instagram influencer so I'll get like hey Joey like like they've evolved for $ 2,000 for posts I know other people graphic designers artists $ 30,000 for posts 3 posts you made more than a lot of people have made in a whole year so it's worthwhile ok now your thing in terms of selling product it shouldn't be selling at all get rid of the words telling your mind educator entertain teach me how to use your product what problem does it solve stuff to go to talks about this in his book this is marketing he says build a product or service that matters with the built in story and then just share that story do you make a product that matters ok so then tell the story does have a built in story you got seeing some Mike if you want anybody yes yes ok well that's what you want to do so you're gonna talk about a lot of your why like why you're doing it because that then today all show and all things look the same right so there's a story there okay anything else in last minute questions anything that I know I'm forgetting a whole bunch of Things I had a whole elaborate presentation prepared I just decided to write it out instead anything else okay Jade any question from the 220 people that were watching huh you answered all of them how many people watching now 100 all right we got 361 all right since there are no more questions thank you you guys Thank you very much
