Instagram has become one of the best ways to put yourself out there in order to make yourself known, whether that be your personal page, a business page, or if you just like posting pictures of your art!
It has become a major link between new business clients, friends across the country, and more. But how do you get the views on your profile? Instagram pages should be pleasing to your own aesthetic, as well as providing something that others would be interested in, all while showing the world who you are. So how can it be done?
There are a number of strategies that are out there, but I put together the three most important things to keep in mind.
1. Have your layout be consistent
People are going to want to follow your page for a reason, so make it a good one! According to this page you need to post regularly in order to have your followers be reliant and see you as a regular mutual interactive.
2. Interact with your followers in your captions
Instagram mainly focuses on pictures, but your interactive followers will read your captions, too. It’s important for them to be relevant to the photo of course, but this study suggests that most people find it best when the photo captions are honest, and don’t try to portray the “perfect life” image.
3. Be active in the Instagram community
If you expect people to interact with you, you have to know that it is not a one way street. You have to gain the following and keep the following in order to have loyal followers and have them to your advantage. Some sources say that hashtags, although they seem so simple, can be played right in the way that they can be the main reason that you gain followers and people can come across your page.
The only way that you can do this is to get posting. Follow these tips and be true to yourself!
