Shout Outs have been part of the instagram game since forever. I created this topic so we could share our knowledge on tips & tricks on how to convert Instagram users into taken the desired action of the shout out. So we could all benefit from it whether you are providing or buying shout outs. Some examples of Shout Out purposes: Post/Stories to gain followers - Follow @username Post/Stories to sell product/services Posts/Stories to get brand awareness Etc. Some tip/tricks from my experience Shout Out should have 1 single call to action, don't expect to convert well if you ask users to perform multiple tasks Try to trigger a strong emotional response, for example a good offer for limited time (must buy this), some good value (information) Make them laugh/feel amazed etc.. this will usually result into the user taking action. Make sure you tell the user what to do, having a clear call to action is a must Shout Out should be relevant to the niche (no brainer right? So what are your thoughts on this? and what is your experience using/providing shout outs? Also be sure to make a vote on the poll !
