Unethical Instagram marketers seem to be all over the place these days. Pitching their businesses on first contact, posting false claims of success, and spamming up our Instagram feeds with garbage.
If you're just starting out on Instagram, it might even seem like an epidemic. Lol 😉 😉 😉
But this is good news for the Instagram marketers that actually want to create a real legacy!
Where it might seem that these guys are clogging up the space, it's actually creating a nice spot to stand out.
It's easy to look better than most of them. Just by being present and interacting with your followers, you've already got a leg up.
So in this article I'm going to share a few things, that you can do to bring a fresh element of professionalism to your Instagram account. Without drowning in all of the noise!
Here's what I see that you'll want to avoid. A fake profile name. You'll definitely want to use your real name. You can change your Instagram name and handle at any time. So if you see someone with a bunch of random letters and numbers, especially in their actual Instagram names. This is more than likely a spammer, or fake account.
Believe it or not, there are probably thousands of fake accounts created daily. Just for the purpose of abusing and pushing Instagram, until they get shut down. Throwaway accounts.
So to avoid looking like a spammer, use your real name. Lol. You can change it, at any time.
Next, if you're using Instagram for a home business. Change your profile over to a business account.
This completely legitimizes your account, because you have to attach your Instagram account to a real Facebook account. You can find this option in your Instagram settings. (The little gear in the corner)
Now you can run ads to your posts. Add your contact information to your profile. And give yourself a sweet title. I chose the ever distinguishable “Entrepreneur” title. Lol
But again, the unethical, and the spammer Instagram marketers have probably gotten kicked off of Facebook too. So this option will not be available to them. Easy to stand up. And Easy to stand out!
Finally, if you want to capitalize on the unethical Instagram Marketer's mistakes. Stay consistent! Show up everyday, post everyday, interact with your followers everyday!
Usually, unethical people, are pretty lazy. They're always looking for shortcuts, and the easy way to the top. So they're not going to be there everyday. They're not going to interact with their followers, unless they are going to spam them, or argue with them.
You see, it's super easy to stand out on Instagram. The most important thing I think, is to be YOU! The right people will find you, and the right people will see your hustle and effort.
Don't let these leach-like Instagram marketers get you down or drown you out. Instagram has a way of weeding these guys out anyways. So ignore them, block them, and move on! Your opportunity is here!
