The Instagram Social Network is probably the most popular web application for vintage photo filters, allowing its users through their smartphone to upload photos of what they want, enriching them with great retro effects.
Instagram is easy to use – shoot with your phone, cut the photo, rotate it if you want it, choose a filter, apply it, share it and make it ready.
This is an overly expressive social network where you will not only show the best of your surroundings but also everything related to your business that can be shot.
Instagram & Facebook
Don’t forget to connect your IG profile on Facebook. That way, you will be discoverable. You will start to get notifications from Instagram about your FB friends who also has Instagram profiles. ( They will also receive the same notification).
Use popular #hashtags
Using popular hashtags you will get you more likes & comments, this may lead to new followers. Don’t spam your post with hashtags! No more than 10 hashtags.
Popular hashtag examples:
People prefer liking instead of commenting or following
Because liking a photo is easy – two taps on the screen or just one on the hearth. Boom! You got your like.
If you want more engagement you also have to engage. Start interacting with other people with writing a nice comment or follow somebody.
On average if you like 100 pictures ( pics from people you don’t follow ) you will approximately gain 20 likes on your pictures and 1 – 10 new followers
Follow and Unfollow
Just don’t do it! Maybe a few years ago that was working perfectly, now is not. Instagram’s algorithm is smart and they will catch you. This will lead to less showing when you post pictures with hashtags, which means less likes,followers and comments.
More bling bling more curiosity. When you start posting pictures from places where not everybody can afford or go, your followers will be interested in your lifestyle and with their like or follow will try to become a part from it. That’s how it works.
