How to get the most out of Instagram

Instagram is one of the fastest growing social networks at the moment and it’s pretty easy to use. There’s no better time than now to get started with your own Instagram account.

Here are our top three tips to help you make the most of it…

  1. Keep your Hashtags to a minimum
    Using hashtags is one of the best ways to increase your audience and engagement on Instagram. Use them sparingly though, as captions are often bloated with hashtags that have nothing to do with what the post is about. Using short, relevant hashtags are the best way to benefit most.
  2. Interact with your Followers
    It’s important to not ignore your loyal followers… otherwise, you might end up driving them away. As long as you make your followers feel valued by replying to their comments of liking a few of their photos. There’s an evergrowing list of tools that can help you to keep track of your followers.
  3. Avoid the temptation to purchase Followers
    Since the inception of Instagram, many new accounts have turned to buying a lot of followers for not a lot of money. The problem with buying followers though is that most of them are fake and show little engagement with your account. If your new Instagram account has 30k followers and only a small number of likes on your photos, it’s going to look odd.
