Have you ever thought of yourself as a brand? How would you turn what you do every day into a money making machine? Our social media says a lot about who we are, if well managed it can be turned into a business. Getting paid to just take a selfie! Who wouldn’t like that?
These are tips on how to become an Instagram influencer:
FIND YOUR NICHE
Find something that makes you stand out. This can be photography, dancing, modeling, you name it.
CREATE A NET-WORTH BIO
To most people, the bio is one that is given least attention. However, your bio needs to be the most interesting thing. It needs to catch people’s attention.
MAKE YOUR INSTAFEED APPEALING
Not only should each of your photos be visually-appealing but also adhere to an overall theme. In simple terms it means that you should post photos with high resolution and with good editing. Editing apps like VSCO and Light room will do the magic
SHARE YOUR STORY
If you think you can become an Instagram influencer just by sharing photos, you clearly have it all wrong. The captions that go along with those photos are as important as the photos themselves. Use them to tell your stories and connect with your followers on an emotional level. Give them a reason to trust you, follow you, and engage with you.
Posting consistently is really crucial. If you choose to have a schedule, you must be able to stick
HAVE THE RIGHT HASHTAGS
Hashtags are important because they enable your content to be found by other Instagram users. Instagram allows you to use a maximum of 30 hashtags on a photo, and I recommend using them all. Remember that hashtags having high search volumes aren’t necessarily good for you. High search volumes imply high competition too. Chances of your post being discovered using those hashtags is bleak. Instead, choose hashtags that have decent search volumes that maximizes your chances of appearing in the top posts.
HAVE A BUSINESS ACCOUNT
The most important benefit is that with a business account, you get access to insights. You’ll be able to see not only your follower demographics but also which posts are getting better engagement. You will also be able to see the days and times which give you the best engagement.
