Edit - Proper filter/preset
Always make sure you EDIT exactly the way you want it!
If it's a COLLAB make sure your picture has a clear message and the content is the main focus!
Don't have anything to distract away from what you are promoting!
There’s nothing worse than posting your photo, likes are starting to flood in and you realize you forgot to "doctor it" and you have to archive it.
*don't delete your photos-always archive*
CAPTION CAPTION CAPTION
You need to grab your audiences attention within the first four words!
YEAH, FOUR WORDZZZZ.
We are a now generation and if you don’t catch "instagramers" right when they see your post, they will keep scrolling!
Ask open ended questions!
"What's your experience with this? Help me out!"
Do you a call to action
“check out the link in my bio “ “Double tap if this puppy is cute”
ANYTHING that will get them to STOP SCROLLING!
Tagging people or a location
I forget this one all the time!
Tag a like minded follower!
Just depending on what your niche is, try to always tag a location!
Rumor has it adding a Geo tag to your picture can boost it up to 70%!
More engagement? Yes please!
Instagram allows you to use 30 hashtags #! That’s 30 pages your photo is going to!
It’s a no brained!
Tailwind suggests the best hashtags for my photos!
A few things I have learned about hashtags!
First, I thought using really popular hashtags was the way to go!
What I learned was, it got lost IN SECONDS!
When you use a hashtag that has a million + pictures you are going to get lost in the mix! Using longer hashtags and more specific, will get your photo seen more!
Just some examples! Spice it up!
Second, You can put your hashtags in different locations!
1. At the end of your caption
2. In the middle of your caption!
3. In your comments
I've tested out all three ways and the best results I've had is when you take your 30 best recommended hashtags and drop them in the comment section! Most of your reader won't see them and it keep your posts looking clean!
double check! All set! Post! NOW, GO PROMOTE!
