So, INSTAGRAM …..If you want to develop a following, then you need to post quality photo’s and do it regularly. This means more than just once a week. You need to be posting every day. But, at the same time, you could be posting too much. Posting too much may overwhelm some people. Perhaps post once in the morning and once in the afternoon. You could increase your posts as you gain more followers.
Make sure your captions provide some good emotions such as inspiration and motivation. That may sound a bit cheesy, but these are the sorts of things that get people coming back for more.
Are you a hashtag user ? They need to be descriptive. You could use descriptive two word hashtags to represent the post. EG – RedApple
Engage with your followers. There is more to it than just posting pictures and videos. One way to engage with followers is to ask questions in your captions. This helps to develop relationships and a stronger group of supporters. This will increase the number of followers who comment on your photos as well.
Positivity is key. Once you develop your followers,you need to create a positive community where followers interact with each other.
Like alot of things online, you can benefit by promoting similar accounts. Find accounts with a similar number of followers. Maybe reach out to others and help promote each others accounts.
So, all the best towards your Instagram Success !!
