10 Ways to Use Instagram for Ecommerce Marketing

Many successful Internet marketers  have more than one approach to making money online. A basic Internet business is based on one of two approaches – sell your own product or sell someone else’s product.

Many of use do both. My primary Internet business is based on affiliate marketing. I also sell content I create. In addition I engage in eCommerce.

I do not recommend attempting multiple approaches to an online business until you have mastered one. That is also my recommendation for advertising. Master one form of advertising then learn and employ another.

Most people (up to 97%!) earn less than $500 a year online, if they earn that much.  The basic problem is not learning how to do it. That means mastering (yes, becoming expert) one approach before moving on to another. Generally people want to make fast money online – not build a business.

A great tool for many Internet businesses is social media. I use many social media outlets. A new one for me is Instagram. I’m learning how to use Instagram effectively before employing it for business. I suggest you learn about it before just jumping in.

Here’s an article originally published on PracticalEcommerce.com 2/5/15 by Paul Chaney. I consider this a good starting point to learning about Instagram and how it may benefit your business.

Read on and enjoy.

The photo-sharing site Instagram is in a transition phase between personal and business use. Unlike Facebook or Pinterest, for instance, the site offers no business-specific features.

That has not stopped retailers from flocking to the site in hopes of garnering the attention of Instagram’s recently announced 300 million user base, 60 percent of whom fall between the ages of 18 and 34, according to data from Adweek. A report from digital research firm L2 found that 93 percent of premier brands have a presence on the site.

The use of Instagram is not limited to large brands. Smaller ecommerce merchants can also take advantage of its benefits.

Here are ten ideas for using Instagram to promote products, highlighting online retail brands as examples.

SEO: 8 Free Tools to Find New Keywords

JILL KOCHER (This article originally published at PracticalEcommerce.com)

Discovering new and more valuable keywords can be one of the hardest parts of optimizing your content for search engines.

To some extent, your site is probably optimized today based on how your business and your industry thinks about the products you sell. Invariably, customers search for your products differently, and breaking out of your current mindset to identify the keywords real customers use can be challenging.

In “SEO 101, Part 3: Keyword Research Planning,” I detailed the basics of keyword research. The list of tools in this article will break you out of your keyword rut, making it easier to identify and plan lists of keywords to research.

Keyword Suggest Tools

The suggest-type of keyword tools literally scrapes the related searches that Google, Bing, YouTube, and other search engines provide to help searchers find what they seek.

  1. Übersuggest.This clever tool scrapes Google Suggest for the keyword ideas that Google shows to its searchers. The image below illustrates a search in progress for “shoes for m.”

Google Suggest results for “shoes for m”.

Each new letter the searcher types in changes the words shown in Google Suggest. Übersuggest scrapes all of the suggestions Google Suggest offers up for any keyword you enter. Typically the resulting list contains over 100 keyword phrases. Some of them won’t be relevant to your product offering, but you’ll have plenty of new keyword suggestions to feed into your keyword research tool.

Who Are You Dancing With This Year?

Because you are on this site I guess you’re serious about making money online.

If you want to make serious money online you have to dance with successful Internet money-makers. Why do I use the ‘dance’ instead of hangout? Well when you hangout there’s nothing you have to do. You are just there.

When you ‘dance‘ with someone you have to know the right steps and rhythm or you’re another clumsy wannabe. Now, there is only so much you can learn online. Yes, you can learn a lot. But to fully understand online business there is no alternative to learning directly from the professionals – those top 2 or 3% of all online money-makers.

And you want to get to know them. At live events the people you may know from Internet activities get to know you . . . the real you. There are many, many advantages to getting face-to-face with presenters and engage them in conversation after they leave the stage.

I’ve never attended an event where the presenters didn’t speak to me and other audience members one-on-one. These conversations, no matter how brief are the beginning of a relationship.

Remember, it’s not who you know. It’s who knows you.
