You'd have to be a fool not to consider getting a piece of the action over there. Especially, if you want to be a social media influencer. How do some people blow up on Instagram? You're at the right place, my friend. Keep reading to find out more!
First of all, Instagram's biography is like your business card. It is a small box at the top of your profile for 150 characters of who you are, what you do, and why you should be followed. It should also come with a profile photo (the best you got) in high resolution to look attractive.
A well-defined biography has the power to attract and keep the attention of the people you are targeting. The most important thing is that within your bio, you can add the unique, quirky things about you that make you unique from the other people. For example, you can write ‘Virgo’, ‘Plant Connoisseur’, ‘Aspiring Chef’ and more. Remember to include the link to your website. Here is also where brands will want you to direct your audience to their specific link in the future.
If you want to be successful (in all things really), the secret is to be consistent in creating content. To do this, you must keep posting regularly. For example, Instagram stories are an excellent tool for daily use. You don't have to post daily (though it's highly recommended), but every 2nd or 3rd day is good. Being consistent is not about posting too much; it's about creating quality content.
Consistency + quality content = guaranteed followers.
To keep the momentum, create a posting calendar using Planoly, Preview app, Garny, or even Google Calendar. It will help you to be regular and not be left blank with nothing to post.
As you continue posting, keep looking at Instagram analytics, which tells you what your viewers like and what they are likely to like. You must evaluate your followers and keep them engaged with more posts like those that rate highly.
Instagram is a network that continually adapts to change and continuously updates and creates tools that further humanise this digital platform. When it releases a new feature or update, it really promotes them to its audiences to create awareness. So use them as much as possible to get more views. At the moment, 'Create Story Template' is one of the new features in 2021.
As a closing, remember consistency is vital in content creation. It creates trust in your followers of who you are. If you can't post all the time, use online platforms like Later to create a calendar, schedule posts, and forget it. Being consistent will allow you to maximise the new features and updates. Now that you know don't wait to be an influencer! Start today!
