You’ve been asking for it – so an Instagram contest template is finally here.
A great way to run a powerful Instagram contest that explodes your email list and generates a ton of new followers for your Instagram account.
Note: This template is 100% free and REI was not a part of this – they just happen to have a beautiful Instagram feed.
What you need to get started with this free Instagram template…
- A website hosted on WordPress (we suggest WP Engine).
- Your own copy of Optimize Press 2.0
- A desire to build a bigger email list.
Also, if you want to 4x your leads – you’ll use this template in conjunction with Contest Domination. The tutorial video below will help a lot.
Instagram Contests: Simplified
There were two main reasons we kept this template so simple and elegant, when in the past (such as our Pinterest template) went to great lengths to revolutionize how contests are done.
1. A simple approach is the one that will get used by the most people… and have the biggest impact.
Or in the words of best selling author, Tim Ferris…
“The best diet is the one you actually stick to.” – Tim Ferris
We wanted this template to be something a lot of people feel they could quickly and easily deploy in their business.
On top of that, we know that making content creation (even as simple as posting an Instagram post that is NOT pre-configured) is going to have massive drop-off.
You’re welcome, of course, to add an additional step on this template asking people to post with a specific #hashtag if that’s your goal. 1 1. Just use the dead simple clone option when hovering over the "Step 2" headline element, description and spacing. ×
But for most people, we think this will fit the bill just right.
2. Instagram restricts users from embedding links into images and doesn’t appear to changing anytime soon.
This one is HUGE – we’re big fans of Instagram, and so are many of our 10’s of thousands of users. However, without the ability for users to embed unique links into images this severely limits the referral mechanics that we normally rely on to get our customary “Insane Conversions” directly within Instagram.
However, what we CAN do – is give you a great way to pick up a bunch of Instagram followers… build a massive email list and use our traditionally exceptional referral funnel.
