Here are 5 Tips for Creating a Thriving Instagram
1. Have a Brand
I know you may want to show off every aspect of your life but keep it consistent. You should be able to summarize what your Instagram is about in a few words. What keywords summarize your Instagram?
If you are about travel, make sure all your post can somehow relate to travel. If you are a personal brand, make sure that your post still reflects an ethos.
Pro Tip: Ask a few new friends to look at your existing Instagram and summarize what it’s about. If they stumble or take long to answer – you may want to rethink content theme you are putting out there.
2. Have a Story
People are following you for you and not solely for amazing photos or videos. Ensure every post has a little story, and be sure that story follows your brand. I post a lot of content about myself, my journey and the freedom of travelling and working online. My post stories are not elaborate but I do talk about how I feel in each post and often how grateful I am for the moment I am in.
Make sure you post tells a story.
3. Quality is King
Even if you have 1k followers, build content like a 100k influencer. You want your content to reflect where you want to be – and the quality of your photos and videos will show that. Take time to curate your content so that it looks good and keeps up to a certain quality standard.
You don’t need a $2000 camera to take great Instagram photos. Be mindful that your quality stays consistent.
I wish you all the best on your Instagram journey. Again, add yourself to the facebook group.
