WHAT SHOULD I POST?
Wearing a cute outfit? Ask a friend or your certified “Instagram Boyfriend” to snap a pic of your look! This is a great way to express your personal style and allow people beyond your office to see your fashionable outfit of the day. If you’re a fashion blogger, then this a great way to build your brand and showcase your style.
Step One: find a cute table or even a white sheet. Step Two: Spill. Lay out your bag essentials: your morning coffee, newspaper, or your latest spoils from an online shopping adventure. Step 3: Take a snapshot!
Snapping an aerial pic of your favorite things is a great way to get a lot of likes on Instagram and curate an amazing feed.
The classic food pic. Search for good lighting and arrange your food to make it look its most delicious!
No shame in a classic selfie! Show off your latest favorites from Sephora and smile!
- Post between 4 PM and 10 PM. This is a good window because people are getting off work and checking their feeds! Try not to post after a lot of people have gone to bed. We won’t count the inevitable tipsy bar selfie.
- Try to post photos of yourself strategically – post them evenly so that there’s a balanced amount of photos with you in it and photos of things like food, flat lays, etc.
- Perfect your bio – this is the first thing people see. Organize it into multiple rows, add emojis, and add your blog or website! This allows people to connect with you more easily.
- If you want to use your Instagram solely for business purposes, switch to an “Business Account”. All you need is a Facebook page for your business or blog and people will be able to seamlessly connect with you through Instagram! It also allows you to add a very chic tagline to your page. Some examples are “Blogger”, “Public Figure”, and more, depending on your profession.
