Instagram Success Formula For Beginners

The road to success on Instagram is possible, but you need to follow some guidelines that will make you a mega star of the Insta-world. Take a look at them!

Find Your Winning Combination Of Hashtags

There are countless possibilities of hashtags to use (you name it), but more often than not, choosing the right hashtag can be a major success.

The criteria for choosing a particular hashtag over another are that you are interested in being in that conversation, since a hashtag is a way to categorize or gather specific content under a label and many times that content is relevant to us; why? Because the audience is checking upon those hashtags searching for that specific content.

A hashtag has many uses such as creating conversations, events, campaigns, contests, can be a networking tool, and so on.

My personal trick: Spend some time searching for hashtags that might be relevant for your. Pick a set of 30 of them and have them ready in the “notes” app on your smartphone, for all your future Instagram posts.

Create Your Own Hashtags

It is very important that you create and use your own hashtags. Your own hashtag will help you monitor your conversation, find relevant users, as well as allow users to find you, or even it can be a customer service channel for your brand (and all that for free!).

Here’s a rule of thumb for creating a good hashtagIt must be SIMPLE, expressed on your audience’s LANGUAGE, it includes relevant KEYWORDS, the SHORTEST possible, easy to REMEMBER, witty and friendly.

Share, Like And Follow Similar Or Related Accounts

Explore your favourite hashtags to find like-minded people who post good pictures, and when you see one you like, leave a thoughtful comment, give a like, or even follow them. Often times, the other person will respond the gesture, or at least  they might take a look. If they like what they see, they can just keep coming back!

Post Original Content

While Instagram is a great tool for sharing your latest posts on the blog, it does not work this way for Twitter or Facebook. In other words, you should not get into a routine of just sharing your latest posts, as this policy does not give people any incentive to follow your Instagram account.

The best way would be to offer some details, teaching them a “making of” or “behind the scenes”, sharing moments of your day to day etc.

Your Own Aesthetic Identity

It is very important to have your own aesthetic identity or your own style in your images creating a cohesive feeling, that fits in with different subjects or themes; you can achieve this by using the same filters (one or two) for all your images. You can use filters built into Instagram, or you might just go with other filters you can find in thousands of filter apps until you find the one that fits you or your brand.

 

This way you will always have your images of different subjects but all of them with the same element of cohesion and own your style.

Tag and Mention other Accounts

Mention your followers, your customers or any other users to spread your message, show appreciation and create engagement with your audience.

Put Your Email In Your Bio

Not everyone does it but it’s a great way to get in touch with you, or even if someones would like to offer you any collaboration.
