Instagram is my favorite social medium. I love how visual it is, and it's easy for me to browse while I'm nursing the baby or driving around town. (Just kidding about the driving part.)
Seriously though, I think a lot of us sewing bloggers love Instagram for a lot of reasons, but most of us don't have much of an idea about how to use it for increasing traffic to our blogs (and subsequently, sales of our patterns/products/courses, signups for our newsletters, etc.).
I recently became curious how much traffic I was getting from the link to my blog in my Instagram profile. However, I was shocked to see that it wasn't showing up anywhere in Google Analytics. With a little research, I determined that inbound traffic from Instagram simply shows up as "direct" in Google Analytics.
Womp, womp, womp.
So, I set out to find a solution to this little problem, and I'm sharing it with you in the video below!
