  • Instagram allows you to share photos and videos instantly with your followers. There are so many ways to get followers involved and engaged. Today, Ill be talking about the power of a Guest Post!
  • Gaining a New Audience Are you looking to target a new audience in addition to the one you have already cultivated? Then Guest Posting is an awesome way to receive tons of new followers with different interests.
  • Combine Forces and DOUBLE your Followers By working together, both accounts are endorsing the other, and this will lead to followers on both ends checking out the others feed.
  • Preparation This is essential to reap all of the benefits a guest poster can bring you. Both accounts should be involved in the preparation stage. You should be giving their account shout outs, by either reposting content, or including their account in captions of your own posts. The guest poster should be directing their followers to your account in the weeks and days leading up to their takeover. This way, their followers will know where to look for their guest postings.

Liz and her blog were featured on an account with over 98K followers. While posting her favorite spots, Liz was sporting two adorable outfits from Piperlimes newest collection, lending her credibility as a fashion blogger to the brand and introducing her 19K followers to their new line.
