So, you learned how to use Instagram, but now you want find new ways to raise your popularity? That’s not easy, but there are some hints you could use.
I don’t say i know how to get famous on Instagram, but if you follow my suggestions you should be able to engage more followers!
Let’s start with HASHTAGS. Like on Twitter, on Instagram is possible to tag your pictures to raise visibility. Choose right Hashtags is very important, but how to choose them? Follow these two guidelines: relevancy and popularity. If a tag is relevant but not popular, or it’s popular but not relevant, you won’t get much results. For example, if you post a picture of your cat, you could tag #cat, #cats, #cute, #pets and so on, these are very popular tags and they are very relevant for your picture. You can also tag popular tags like #girl #fashion #sunset… but if someone is looking for a sunset is very unlikely he will click a picture of a cat. So my suggestion is: popular AND relevant.
Instagram allows up to 30 tags for each picture, and deleting them to put new ones doesn’t work anymore, so choose carefully!
Also choose TOO popular tags can be less effective than choosing, for example, a medium popular tag. That’s because a very popular tag get thousand of tags every minute, and your picture would be visible in that window for less than a second!
A good app to find popular and categorized tags is TagsForLikes. You can download it on your smartphone or consulting it on the web.
If you are a musician or you like music theme photo, you can tag #bestmusicshots. Your picture could even be featured and you will get a free shoutout, or you can book one at WWW.BESTMUSICSHOTS.COM
The road to popularity on Instagram starts from here!
