26 Apr 5 Tips to Help You Become #Instafamous on Instagram
Is your main life goal to be #Instafamous on Instagram? Well, I’ve got some good news for you! It just so happens to be a whole lot easier than you think. With a few small changes to your posting routine, you may get the increase in followers that you are looking for. Find out how to do this with the simple tips below.
Who doesn’t like a good hashtag? I thrive off them. They get me going in the morning. Not really, but they are very important when it comes to getting people to notice your content on Instagram. Essentially, hashtags tie different users together through specific keywords about any given topic. As an added bonus, they can be easily searched on social media platforms. For some ideas of what you should use, check out this list of the top trending hashtags on Instagram. I’d recommend using hashtags that are relevant to what you are posting about. For example, if you post a selfie from your trip to the beach, you might want to use #beach or #beachlife. Seems obvious, but its worth noting.
- Post at the Right Times
I hate to break it to you, but those 2am Instagram posts aren’t helping your cause. Think about it logically. When are you most likely to see something on Instagram? Chances are it is on your lunch break or after work. Am I right? With that being said, try posting sometime between 11am-1pm and 7pm-9pm to get the most engagement. If weekdays aren’t your thing, consider posting around 11am on weekends. Whichever route you take, strongly consider who your target audience is and when they are most likely to be checking out your page.
- Follow and Like Other People’s Posts
Have you ever had a one-way conversation with someone? Yeah, it’s not the greatest. Quality communication flows both ways. If you want people to follow you, follow them back. If you want people to like your content, like theirs back. Basically, if you take the time to appreciate the work that someone is posting, they are more likely to reciprocate.
- Post Targeted Content
Some people like to take odd pictures and post them on their account. Now, that is completely fine, but the main thing to consider is who your target audience is and why are they coming to your page. If you have built a following by sharing pictures of your cat on various surfaces around your house, that is great—stick to that posting strategy. If all of a sudden you decide that you are going to share pictures of the flowers in your yard, you might notice that engagement isn’t what it used to be. Long story short, post content that is going to draw in your audience—think Inbound Marketing techniques.
- Post Quality Pictures
No one wants to see that blurry picture of that gourmet meal you made last week. Quality over quantity (within reason) is a key towards your success. It doesn’t matter if your Instagram specializes in pictures of cats, or if you take pictures of the finer things in life, the real thing to keep in mind is that you are posting quality images that people will enjoy because of their inherent visual aesthetic.
