Social Media Management
With Instagram putting the final nail in the automation coffin, is safe to say that the Golden Age of Instagram automation is over. After successfully growing hundreds of accounts with 3,000+ followers a month for over three years, many of our clients are now asking the dreaded question, “What do we do now?”
Up until a few months ago, just about anybody could grow an Instagram account with mediocre content and less than consistent posting habits (1-2 time a month). Thus, just about anybody with $50 in the bank and a promising side hustle could call themselves an ‘influencer’ and live the Insta-famous life. Not bad, right?
What Do We Do Now?
So, does this mean we should all give up on our Instagram accounts we worked so hard to grow and nurture? Of course not! Instagram automation was just a tool used by entrepreneurs and small businesses to level the playing field and compete with big companies.
The key is to continue to post high-quality content regularly keep your momentum moving forward. Even if you don’t get 50 new followers a day like you used to (oh, the good old days), it doesn’t mean you are not on the right track. Assuming you have used a reputable Growth Agency, you should retain about 90% of the followers you gained while on your automation run. It is normal to see a small drop in followers once you stop using automation, but within a few days, your account should level off.
Do It Yourself (Free)
The best option if you do not have the budget to pay someone to manage your social media platforms. Here’s how:
- Use free scheduling software to organize your posts. Or, you can save drafts of your posts directly in the Instagram app.
- Post stories (daily) to keep your business fresh in the minds of your followers. A few great ways to leverage your IG stories and engage with your following is by using the questions and polls feature.
- Influencers who succeed on Instagram (without getting naked) are transparent with their fans and connect with them on a personal level.
- Actively respond to comments and direct messages. Even if it is just to like a user’s comment, the effort is what matters.

Our Social Media Marketing Process
The key performance indicators we look at are followers, engagement, and website traffic. All 3 of these metrics influence sales in the long-term. You will see these metrics increasing monthly, and we will track our progress to see how this is working for you.
On Facebook, growth will be contingent on advertising and how effective we make your advertising campaign. On Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, our clients normally see an organic boost in their followers of 100-300 followers each month.
Our social media management services focus on developing followers and engagement on your social media channels. Your organic website traffic may increase as you gain new followers. However, to see an immediate increase in website traffic, you should use our paid social advertising service.
If you define results as followers and engagement, our clients normally notice an increase in followers and engagement within the first 30 days. The results should continue to increase each month.
We recommend our clients to try this service for at least 6-12 months to see a noticeable impact on conversions. This is because the main focus of our social media management service is to develop your brand’s followers, engagement, and word-of-mouth. If you want to focus on driving conversions in the short-term, you should consider using our paid social advertising services.

We offer initial contract terms of 3 months. After the initial contract term is complete, your account will be serviced on a month-to-month basis.

Service & Working Together

Upon completion, we will schedule a kickoff call with you to discuss the questionnaire and any additional questions may have about your business.
