I don't know if I am teaching everyone to suck lemons here :D but I noticed that I literally am getting no click throughs from Instagram. I have had 2 since May. So I spent far too long watching Instagram YouTube videos and have trialled the Swipe Up option.

Now I am no media whore so I do not have 10,000 followers on Insta, so I don't get it for free. So following this video, I worked on the long way round -


She has updated it to say you need to make a video a minute long now but that's ok.

So posted just now on my Insta story as I seem to get most of my views from Friday afternoon with my Horse Agility vid on YouTube. There is not much cross over from my Facebook faithful so it should get some new growth. Will see how many views I get from Instagram over the next few days and report back

;)

For me Instagram isn't so much about driving traffic but more about just being 'around' another audience that Google, Email, Newsletters, Facebook, Twitter etc maybe aren't exposing my content to.

One thing people (myself included) so who don't have swipe up is use Linktree (https://linktr.ee) and then direct people to click my linktree in my bio in videos and they then get a cut down menu of blog posts I am promoting or whatever I want to push people to

This is very good and I must get round to doing it! I have seen a load of other bloggers that use this.

Incidentally using the Swipe up I created, gained me no extra views of my blog. So going to add linktr.ee when I get back into it.
