Let’s try something different today. I’ve read all your DMs and emails, and you are ready to commit to Instagram’s push for video content. Mainly because it’s not going anywhere and this is your job, so this week I want to help make your job easier…by helping you plan a month of content. That’s right. I’m about to share exactly what you need to do to find what resonates with your audience and grow your business. Keep in mind that results will vary from person to person, but here is how to go viral on Instagram in one month.
First, you have to commit to a month of content to go viral on Instagram. This will not work the same if you’re skipping a few days here and there. Eventually you’ll be able to go back to your regular schedule but for the purposes of growth, give me a month.
I’ve also gotten a lot of questions regarding the reels bonus tanking stats. If you’re only making the base $100, It might be better to not have the option turned on for this month to see what it does to your stats and get a more accurate view of your content.
Utilizing Reels to go Viral on Instagram
Next, we’re going to do one reel a day for two weeks (that’s 14 reels) in various trend styles and various audios. This is our experiment phase. Don’t forget to check out my recent blog post on how to go viral with Reels in 6 steps.
I’ll even start your posting schedule for you, you fill out the rest:
Day 1 – Trend: Vlog Audio: Original Audio (You talking to the camera)
Day 2 – Trend: Lip Sync Audio: Trending
Day 3 – Trend: Meme (One Where You Use A Popular Clip At The End of Your Video) Audio: Trending
Day 4 – Trend: Q+A (Leave A Question Box In Your Stories The Day Before) Audio: Original Audio
Day 5 – Trend: Remix Audio: Original Audio
Day 6 – Trend: Popular Filter Trend Audio: Trending
Day 7 – Trend: Picture Slideshow Audio: Trending
Don’t worry about your stats for these fourteen days, again, this is our experiment phase. You don’t need to do any crazy transitions, just create content and see what happens.
Captions and Hashtags
We’re going to listen to Adam for this month. That means short captions, utilizing keywords the same way we do hashtags and also including five hashtags.
Evaluate and Repeat
Now, for the last two weeks of the month, you’re going to go back and see which of your videos performed best. Pick the 2-3 best trends / styles and alternate those for the last fourteen days.
Don’t forget to show up in stories (that means face on camera) every day so that people who are considering following and new followers can get to know you.
It’s a lot of work, but that’s because it works.
