How to properly promote Instagram consultants and to trainers?
Advertising and massfollowing
Massfollowing and massluxing for trainers and consultants can Be a way to attract the attention of the target audience. For example, you can do geolocation tagging (if necessary subscribers from your city) and competitors.

No need to rewrite chapters from a textbook. Your goal is to write in plain language about complex things. No universal tips needed. The subscriber must be aware of the problem and buy from vasconsultation or training course. However, it’s important so that the person feels the real benefits of your post. He will do as you wrote, and thinks that he wants to learn from you more.
Write to the reader’s world.
Those. talk about what excites him, not about what you want to write. You are a professional and you are interested in deepening your knowledge and learn new research. And to the reader on Instagram need basic knowledge (in the key “you can do it directly now”).
For example, if you are a psychologist, then tell how not to quarrel with boss and properly support friends in difficult times. 10 leave personality psychotypes for later, when the audience is already “warmed up”.
Content that is difficult for the audience needs to be published too. it shows your expertise. But do it once in 3-5 posts, not more often.
Write so as to collect maximum comments. Hype and provocative topics are what everyone is discussing today, and tomorrow too late. Therefore, follow the trends, be aware of not only events in your field, but also in general on Instagram and for it the limits.
And do not forget to periodically remind you that you can buy consultation / course / coach session. As well as the cost of services and how to order.
For a trainer or consultant working with people personally, it’s important “show yourself.” Take a short video – from your presentation, master class, webinar. You can still write short answers to questions from subscribers or go live. Make stories like that You can once again remind yourself. You can even post announcements publish in Stories so that those who do not leaf through to you in their ribbon, go to your account through Stories.
If the main goal of the account is to sell your professional services, then give information about your personal life in a metered and client’s world. Create an image of an expert, not a “neighbor’s girls. “Advanced training, well-known customers, everyday life on work – those aspects of your life that you need periodically show. Great for this Stories and Direct Airs. But your family weekend and trip to Thailand is such a information should be minimum only if you are not a family psychologist or travel agent.
Consultants are sometimes afraid to transfer a personal account to “business”. They think that they will lose the trust of subscribers earned from using personal communication in the account. But because of this you do not get statistics and don’t know how many people are watching your posts, how often save what time they go, gender and age, etc. Evaluating post performance only by likes is not enough advancement.
