Building an Engaged Following with Joey Ruben

Published

on

As massive portions (sometimes even 100%) of today’s businesses’ revenue comes from social media, learning how to please the Instagram algorithm is one of the most important things you can do as an entrepreneur. I was able to interview Joey Ruben, a social media entrepreneur who has been able to master rapidly building audiences on Instagram, on what kind of strategies he’s learned in his experience growing dozens of accounts (some over 1 million followers).

 

What are those trying to grow an audience doing wrong?

Joey: “Posting isn’t everything. Although posting good content is important, it isn’t enough to grow. You need to foster and nurture an engaged follower base in order for Instagram to organically promote your account through recommendations and explore page. I focus on 5 things when trying to build a highly-engaged following:

 

1. Direct Messages

I try to respond to nearly every direct message I get. Along with showing people you care, Instagram will rank your posts higher in the feed of those accounts who direct messaged you. You’ll also gain additional insight on what you can be doing better with your page through the suggestions people make and questions they ask.

 

2. Stories

Half a billion Instagram users watch stories daily, so if you aren’t publishing content on your story you are missing out on a large viewership. I’ve found that by posting your followers will tend to engage better with your feed content as well.

 

3. Responding to Comments

Show your followers you care by responding to comments! They took some time out of their day to leave a comment on your page, it’s only right that you spend some time to reply.

 

4. Going Live

Instagram lives are ranked higher than stories, so it is easy to get additional engagement from your followers by occasionally going live. Instagram live is also a powerful tool for garnering page feedback from your followers or redirecting them to engage with a post.

 

5. Engaging with Followers

Follow your followers! You can create superfans by engaging with your followers’ content. Scratch their back and they’ll scratch yours.”

 

How can I quickly boost engagement?

Joey: “If you’re looking to authentically increase your account’s engagement overnight, you should pay attention to what kind of content top pages are posting. Repost high-engaging, proven content to your page and you will notice a difference. You can also boost feed engagement by adding niche-related hashtags to your posts. Another tactic to get more engagement on your posts is by adding posts to your stories. You can also gain extra organic impressions on your account by posting content that is shareable, this is usually content that is funny or provokes some sort of strong emotional response in the viewer that they may want a friend to experience. There are lots of quick cheat codes to getting better engagement on your posts. They are constantly evolving so the best thing I can recommend is for you to model after what top-performing pages in your niche are doing.”

 

What kind of tools do you use to run your pages?

Joey: “There are a few different tools I use to free up time when managing my pages. Before publishing video content, I often use the app Vont to add text or edit the video. When I make commentary-based based photo posts, I’ll add a comment to the photo with Twitter, then screenshot and crop it to a square. This is what you see most large Instagram theme pages do. I use IGBlade to track my growth over time. I also use the in-app analytics tool to monitor my pages’ performance as well as to gather insight into what kind of people follow me. There are a number of tools out there to streamline various tasks like content creation, scheduled publishing, analytics and more. I recommend anyone who runs multiple pages to look into using some of these tools.”

 

How can readers connect with you?

Joey: “Instagram: @jo.ey”

Being an entrepreneur is appealing, but it can also be a difficult battle, especially when you are running the business. When new entrepreneurs are just beginning, they often fret that they are not going to make it in the business world. Well, it is a familiar feeling among entrepreneurs; some may not know how to overcome it. Here are ways to beat fear by Parmarth Mori.

Leading Entrepreneur of Gujarat Parmarth is the founder of the best website designing company in India PM Communications and Top App Development Company in India.

Identify the doubt

It starts with identifying fear once you realize it, you can eliminate it from your life.

Entrepreneurs need to discover what precisely is causing it. So when you are passing from such stage, just sit down and think about it and ask yourself what is causing these feelings.

Is it the fear of product failing, or is it the concern of not being able to keep up with other entrepreneurs? You have to find out the actual reason first so that you can overcome it.

Embrace Defeat

After finding out the reason of fear, the next thing you can do according to Next Gen IT Entrepreneur Parmarth Mori is to accept it. Let’s say, one of the most familiar fears that every entrepreneur has is fear of failing.

Many entrepreneurs in the start are afraid that they won’t make it like others. Well, this is not a line; it is a fact which is shared by many successful entrepreneurs with their business experience.

Take Risk

They are afraid that a product of theirs won’t appeal to people, and they will face a significant loss of time and money.

Well, Parmarth Mori believes that failure sometimes is beneficial than the direct success. Failure teaches you many things in life and makes you perfect in your field. Failure sometimes also improves you as a professional.

Fears can Guide you in your Entrepreneurial Journey

Fear is beneficial too, and when you have the right doubt means you are on the right path. It helps you improves more and more in your work, which makes you perfect in your field.

Matthew J Phillips is Disrupting How Coaches are Normally Helped

Published

on

Best Coach who can help you earn in six figures:

We’ve all seen it, the hundreds of courses out there designed to take coaches and consultants to 6 figures in 30 days. The gurus charging 5k for 1-1 to help only to throw you a couple of finding your avatar worksheets. Isn’t it sad that the majority of support out there for struggling coaches, consultants and mentors sucks?

Matthew J Phillips under 20 Entrepreneur:

Matthew J Phillips a 19 years old entrepreneur from the United Kingdom has completely disrupted this. His educational company and Organic Clients Program has transformed the lives of hundreds of coaches for a fraction of the price of these low detail, overpriced courses, and guru mentorship programs.

Earning in big numbers:

As proof, from an investment of $300, coach Adam Smith made $7,000 in 5 days. From an investment of $1,000, Gilberto Morales made $11,000 in under 4 weeks. From an investment of $500, Devansh Sharma made $9,000. You don’t see these types of success stories anywhere else.

Matthew knows how to run programs and content on social media platforms:

We think it’s fair to say Matthew and his company have truly disrupted how coaches are helped. His programs and content across platforms like Facebook & Instagram simply work and it’s not just Adam, Gilberto and Devansh that have seen success. They’re just a few of hundreds.

Learn how to gain more leads:

We asked Matthew how you pick the right person to learn from if you’re looking to start fixing up your problems and get more leads and clients flowing through on a week-to-week basis. He said, your best bet is to not go searching for a big guru. The best help he’s ever had is from highly successful individuals that don’t have their face plastered on every youtube video, podcast and ad. Shop around in quality groups on Facebook.

Nice Human Being:

He also says to avoid anyone who’s only success stories go along the line of this “You should work with Jack, he’s a real nice guy”. Again, this is common amongst those that plaster their face on ads and are not in the slightest bit results-oriented with anyone other than themselves. Also, you want to make an ROI, someone saying that someone is a nice guy shouldn’t give you confidence that you’ll see that ROI. You want to see real success stories.

Last words:

Matthew’s fuel to help those in his industry, the right way, comes from individuals like one of his students who spent $40,000 on courses and gurus with not a client closed in return. After sitting down with Matthew, we believe he is disrupt approved.

Learn How Jess Crow Became The Successful WoodWorker She is Today

Published

on

 Jess Crow Is the founder of Crow Creek Designs, a woman-owned and operated woodworking shop located in Alaska. She is widely known as a leading authority in the artistic woodworking and epoxy industry.

 Crafting A Name For Herself

 Jess has not found it easy to get to the level she is currently at; Jess explains that she has made a name for herself by trying to be being an inspiration and sharing everything she’s learned so far. 

 By striving to be approachable and willing to accept advice from anyone; Jess feels that that has been an essential contributing factor to her growth, both personally and professionally.

 So far, Jess’s designs have caught the eyes of notable individuals like Team Gary Vaynerchuk in New York, LinkedIn, as well as Insider, DIY Network, and many more. She’s well on her way to becoming the most sought after woodworking epoxy artist in her field. Jess also is a highly sought after teacher for those wanting to learn how to grow their business despite facing challenging obstacles and learn how to “build more than furniture.”

 Overcoming Obstacles

 Obstacles are a part of everyday life, and so far, Jess has dealt with more than a handful of them. Some of the challenges she has had to deal with include criticism and rejection.In a lot of Social Media circles, the advice is often “stick with what other people are doing,” and that is how you can succeed. Jess has found that standing out and being different than the crowd is the way to go.

 “It is a lot easier to conform to what is known than it is to break free and become what is will be known.” – Jess Crow

 Below Jess shares how she handled this obstacle;

 “To overcome not only these obstacles but any obstacles that are in my way, I run through all the problems I think I could happen. For me, I function better when I am not surprised. 

 

Some folks may see this as “worrying” whereas I feel it falls more in-line with pre-gaming and planning. If you can think about, the “no’s” you may get; you can fine-tune your approach based on that information.”

 Making A Difference 

In a field that’s dominated by men, Jess sometimes finds that her voice sometimes has to be louder to make an impact. Although this sounds daunting, Jess has taken it as a good thing. She shares that she’s learned so much from her male counterparts and that she feels her ability to accept the different ways men and women think has given her an edge. 

She listens to what everyone has to say, and if she deems it’s worth trying, she takes it and adds it to her knowledge bank to make something new or better.

 “Woodworking is an art unto itself, but when you add unexpected elements by way of color and objects, it is exhilarating.”- Jess.
