Growth Hack #1 – 300% More Shares With 1 Simple Change:
Winnie – an app for parents – had a Share button on every post, but not too many people used it.
Then they made one change and saw a 300% boost in shares.
What did they do?
1. They removed the Share button from every post.
2. Instead, they replaced it with a Save button, so that users could create their own collection of interesting posts.
3. Then they added the Share button on the collection of bookmarked posts.
Boom! +300% more shares.
Growth Hack #2 – 48% More Instagram Video Views From IGTV:
People are still way too hesitant to move their IGTV preview into the feed.
True: It is not that great looking. But, Instagram favors IGTV in the feed.
So, when you tick the box for preview, your video will earn maximum traction.
We have lately seen up to 48% more views on videos that were posted to IGTV than similar videos posted to the feed.
We have also seen more engagement from these videos that are on IGTV.
Pro tip: You should use IGTV and the preview function no matter what. But, if you don’t want it to mess up the look of your feed, then you do have the option to only keep it there for the first 12h.
