[…] Infamous To Influential – Okay, so this course is expensive. I have not signed up for it yet. However, I 100% believe it’s worth it and I 100% trust Alex. I’ve been following her since she started “instawithalex” and she gains actively participating followers more easily than I breathe (I have asthma). I feel like I’m going to inevitably sign up for this at some point and you’re going to see my Instagram followers spike and you’ll know why. So this course is here if you want it. […]

You are SLAYING it with this very first blog post! Super helpful, I didn’t know about several of these and I love your explanation as to why they’re beneficial! Top posts is my favorite… I’ve managed to get into the top post spots several times lately for my hashtags. I always thought it was just for IGers with a huge # of followers but was so happy when I realized it was based on engagement and we all have a fair shot!

Crazy; I didn’t know about most of these new features! One of my favorite newer ones is the ability to get notified when people post. I follow a LOT of accounts, and I often will then miss posts from the people I’m closest with. Now I get a notification when those people put a picture up so I can go straight to it! But yes, the features you listed are awesome!

Okay, this is the best information! I am loving the new Instagram features and I think your “top post” theory is right. The other day I posted something that went to top post but in the past I have had things that had way more likes than the top posts so I had no idea. haha

Really interesting – I have just started getting my posts featured in ‘top posts’ more regularly and it’s definitely to do with comments. I don’t get that many likes because mines a small account but I will sometimes have more comments than much bigger accounts and I’m sure that’s what makes the difference.

These are such great tips! I’m loving all your Instagram info – signed up for the course as fast as I could πŸ™‚ I wondered if #1 was only applicable on the iPhone 6s? I know that’s a feature of that phone, but maybe it’s comparable on Instagram with other phones. Also, I wondered if the “top posts” had to do with the person’s influence who liked your photos, but this thinking also makes sense! And the last tip – AMAZING!! So excited to be able to delve more into other recommended IG accounts. Thanks!

Loved the tips, thanks so much for sharing, Alex! I’ve been trying to find ways to get back to design as a side-thing, and the first option is super appealing to me. I’ve only looked at Society6 so far, they’re pretty popular with print on demand, but this is ideal if you want to set up your own shop instead of “borrowing/renting” virtual space elsewhere. These guys are awesome for providing such a fab service. Only thing I’m not sure about is the signup/pricing process. Is there a subscription fee or do they get their share on each submitted order… Read more »

I’m a fashion blogger so I may do the affiliate links. But I also like your first idea of selling products with your logo on them. I’m gonna look into that.

This is so great Alex…just the techy stuff keeps holding me back from making money it seems, or time… hoping I can monetize, soon, seems crazy to have 3500 followers almost and not making a dime….! Need to change that! I certainly have learned a ton from you about doing that, as always thanks for sharing your expert tips!!

These are all excellent ideas! I love the first one the most, because I’ve been wanting to come up with my own products to sell without having to do the work to create them and ship them out — this is perfect! I’m not sure just yet how I can use the other methods for my relatively new travel and outdoor lifestyle blog. The affiliate method could work if I teamed up with outdoor or travel products I guess! Just need more traffic and engaged followers first! πŸ™‚
