How to make Your Instagram Work for you

There are no hard and fast rules as to how to make sure your Instagram posts are on your side. There is only a few rule of thumbs and I think Neil Patel, author and internet entrepreneur, nailed quite some of them down in an article. But I’ll make it short if you don’t have the time to go through every one of them yourself and I’ll toggle benefit according to what I think is important to an Instagram post without beating around the rose bush.

Invest in a Good Picture

Not every single one of your posts has Buy Instagram Likes to be postcard-ready — all you need is a few good quality pictures that highlight the best of your products. There was once a food delivery site that we followed on Twitter who made the best food but had the worst-lit pictures on Instagram. I thought it was a waste of potential and asked them if they could possibly modify their pictures a little with filtration systems before posting it. They did and their pictures have been mouth-watering ever since!

Get Personal

Give your Instagram account a face, someone they can relate to or post a behind-the-scene picture. There is a good reason why people hunt down BTS Youtube videos before/watching a movie or television series. Human beings are curious that way. Once they can relate to you, they’re half-way connected.

Be Funny, Be Quirky, Be In-the-Know, Be Cool or Any One of those

If you be funny, be quirky. If you be quirky, be in-the-know. If you be in-the-know, be cool. Pick one. This way, people remember you whenever you quick look around the corner. They see you from the corner of their eye and know it’s you and they’re interested from the start. That’s branding.

Get an Influencer

I came to be in the point in time when you call someone an influencer, your parents probably thought that they were drug pushers. But in the digital age, it means someone who has a large following on their social media accounts. If you can afford to pay one of those Youtubers or Instagrammers to highlight your service or product, great. If you, find someone affordable you can work with, preferably within the same industry But not your rival. Did I really have to say that? =) The is a list on the internet that shows you the ones with an International platform. If you’re going local, don’t be afraid to negotiate with them.

Use Instagram Ads

As long as you keep to your finances and have a pretty eye-catching short video, DO IT NOW. You shouldn’t be spending thousands on the ads, anyway. When you have split the cost up between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google, you might enjoy a decent MOTOROLA ROI. What you want to enjoy, at the end of the day, is readers.

Run Competitions and Encourage Positive Proposal

Posts that offer something nice or simple will surprise even the best of us. Some people will try their darnest to win a notebook, a pair of tickets to a theme park, a bottle of hand lotion, any occasion, air tickets or a grand piano. Whether it’s free, not many will complain. And besides, compared to Facebook, Instagram’s got fewer rules to follow… for now.

Use Hashtags

I can’t say enough about how some people are using hashtags mistakenly. You don’t post images of your baby and use a hashtag like #AngieandBobsBabyisSoCute. 1) Nobody else is using that hashtag so it will be a complete waste of time (and space); 2) You want to use a hashtag that people can search for and are already using; 3) Find other similar posts for inspiration and like for exposure. You can also come up with your own cool hashtag and promote it everywhere. I am talking about, EVERYWHERE which means your friends, family, and followers uses it too. Now, That’s the intention of a hashtag.
