Want to perform and affordable Instagram ads at the same time?

You can get them through this article where you’ll find how to make and run Instagram ads that turn followers into consumers at only $5 per day.

1) Discover Your Most Engaging Instagram Content

The first step is to identify your 5 best performing ads ever.

For this, you need to click on View Insights for each post.

Instagram 1

Estimate the number of following engagements from Insights-
  • Hearts
  • Comments
  • Shares
  • Profile visits
  • Website clicks
  • Emails

Then add all of these numbers together to get your total number of engagements per post.

Next, add all of the numbers of engagement per post to get your overall number of engagements per post.

After that, calculate the total number of impressions from Insights.

Now you have the data you need to calculate your engagement rate. Take the total number of post engagements and divide it by the total number of impressions.

Now, the overall data will help you in calculating your engagement rate.

  1. Total number of post engagement/total number of impressions.
  2. Multiply that number by 100 to make it into a percentage.

2) Choose Content for Your Instagram Ads

Now, you need to pick the best performing content for your strategically prepared Instagram Ads Sequence.

For this objective, select content that resembles an organic customer journey.

You would require a three-pronged approach to running Instagram ads that will create your audience, generate leads on autopilot, and convert prospects into buyers-

  • Connect
  • Commit
  • Close

3) Create Your $5 per Day Instagram Ad Campaign

Your $5 Instagram ad campaign set up comprises two parts-

  • Building the target audience who will see your ads
  • Launching the ad campaigns in order to deliver ads

Build Target Audience for Your Ad Campaign

Once you got your Instagram posts to make the ads, you would go for creating a custom audience who interacted with your brand on Instagram.
