Stop Posting To Instagram And Hire Someone To Do It For You

Instagram has proven to be the fastest growing platform for our sellers using Soldsie, but there’s no way to automate posting to the platform. This means you have to physically create and post to Instagram via the native app on mobile which can be very time consuming. Recently we did a study on the correlation between increased posting and revenue growth from Instagram which means your business should be posting consistently 3 to 9 times a day on the platform.

We recognize you may not have the time or resources to post or hire someone to do it for you. So to make it easier for you, we’ve gone ahead and done the research for you. Introducing your new virtual employee from CloudPeeps! We put out a job posting and received over 30 applications and these are the 5 best peeps we found. To hire them, you simply have to click on their profiles below or email for help. Also, receive a one time $50 credit towards your first hire if you use code: Soldsie-communityfun via email to their billing department. All of the prices quoted are for 3 posts a day.

7 Habits of Highly Effective Instagram Sellers

Growing rapidly from its inception in 2010, Instagram has become an indispensable part of our online lives. The platform has helped friends keep in touch internationally, regular users find celebrity, and photojournalism thrive. Business owners and brands, too, have used the power of visual storytelling to reach customers–and now, they can sell directly to them as well.

Standing out on Instagram can be a challenge, however. Below, we showcase some of the companies who are selling on Instagram using Soldsie’s Have2Have.it, and what strategies they use to turn Instagram into a robust source of revenue.

Introducing the Newest Update to Have2Have.it

Today we launched the newest version of Have2Have.it for brands.  In today’s update we’re excited to announce three new features:

  • The ability to add actual product images for tagged products.
  • The ability to display product titles and short descriptions in the feed.  
  • The ability for followers to select grid view.  

Here’s a closer look at the three new features:

    1. Product images for tagged products.  Now, when you add a product to a post, you have the option of uploading a product image so followers can now see the product instead of a small screenshot of the Instagram image.  Brands asked for this ability to better showcase the multiple products featured within a post.  Don’t want to add an image?  Don’t worry, as it’s just an optional feature.  If no image is uploaded, then the product name will be displayed to the customer.

    1. Product titles and short descriptions in the feed.  Have2Have.it used to only be a feed of images.  Now with the newest update, you can toggle on short descriptions and product titles for followers to see.  To get your product titles and short descriptions to show on the feed, go to Settings and turn Images only to ”No.”

  1. Grid view in the feed.  Followers viewing the feed can now toggle between single images and grid view to more easily discover content further down in the feed.

We hope you enjoy these latest features.  We’ll be launching more new fun stuff in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
