Creating an Instagram account for the first time and expecting instant success is a common occurrence, particularly within the UAE. However in reality, Instagram needs time to build a following, and requires some elements of work. Once successful, a good Instagram account can gain a company or business unlimited exposure and transform the way they communicate with customers.
We have compiled a list to help you transform your instagram from lacking to lucrative in 5 easy steps:
1. Have An Obvious Theme
Posting pictures of anything and everything just wont cut it on Instagram anymore. Your top six images need to quickly and effectively convey the style, quality and concept of your Instagram, enticing people to click ‘follow’ without trawling through months worth of low quality and uninteresting content.
2. Use Hashtags Effectively
Using hashtags in your posts that are known to be the most used tags relevant to your content ensures that the right eyes will be looking at your page. You can use up to 30 tags per post, so use them! You can also use tags such as #followback #followforfollow #instalikes etc. This has proven success, but these tags make your intensions for Insta-fame obvious, reducing the quality of your content in the long term.
3. Be Extremely Active
People respond best when their own content has been complimented, either by a ‘like’ or ‘comment’. Spend an hour or so everyday ‘liking’ every post relevant to your own content using hashtag searches. For every 100 posts you like, you should receive on average 6 likes to your profile. This is time consuming but very effective.
4. Have A Complete and Interesting Bio
Writing an enticing, interesting and visually appealing bio is the easiest way gain followers who have stumbled upon your page. TIP: Write your bio in the ‘notes’ application on your phone, and then copy them into Instagram to get around formatting issues and stand out from the crowd.
5. Use An Engagement Service
Want success but can’t wait for it? For just a small amount per month, services such as the First For Marketing Engagement Package can be used to help you with all of the above on a professional level.
