Make Instagram work for you! Instagram is a powerful social media tool that you can use for personal and business use. For both your business and individual account it is essential to have a detailed biography. Most potential fans decide whether or not to follow you within the first few seconds of reviewing your profile. Your biography is the first thing that people are going to see when they visit your Instagram account. Captivate them!

Are you thinking how? Stop frantically typing! Take a step back and consider the following…

  • Business? Or Personal?
  • What will your page represent?
  • What’s your goal? Buy your product? Read your blog? Enter a competition?
  • Create tracking links so people can take action and you can track conversions.

Instagram is all about pictures so get creative! Share a variety of images because sharing similar beach posts or memes won’t excite and engage your audience for the longterm. Post once a day and make sure your share when your audience is most likely to engage. 

Okay, now you’re posting your pictures, so how do you grow your following? Use hashtags! They will boost how many people see your posts. Select hashtags that relate with your post theme or brand. You can use up to thirty hashtags for each post but we recommend using at least five and no more than ten. This Instagram post by Aqua Hotels & Resorts is not only a great picture but it’s caption and hashtags help to tell a story that attract a broader audience. This post is about Oahu, vacation and beach time and these hashtags target this audience.

Have five minutes? Get on Instagram and like photos from the people you follow or photos that have used similar hashtags. Don’t be afraid to comment because engaging will get your name out there.
