Becoming popular on Instagram

One can say with no doubts that social networks have changed our lifestyle. And this is especially true if you are a creative person who has own small business, or an artist dreaming of selling his artwork. With the correct strategy, you can find not only public recognition but also attract potential customers. We can't deny that Instagram is one of the most powerful tools to show you and your work to the world. 

If you visit Instagram at least once a day, you must have paid attention to how actors, athletes, bloggers, and other famous personalities behave in this photo network. You can love and hate them, read or ignore, but they can undoubtedly inspire you and understand how to become famous person with a bunch a followers on Instagram.

Seven tips can help you become famous for gaining an army of thousands of fans. 

1. Account settings

 You need to start, of course, with creating and setting up an account - everything needs to be thought out. The first thing you should do is to come up with a nickname or username. It is unlikely that merely your name and surname will become a proper nickname, although there are many such cases. But you'd better think of something memorable. To make your nickname simple - separate words or letters with characters, dashes or underscores. 

Another essential thing to do is to upload the photo. In Instagram, it will look like a small circle. No details will be visible there. Therefore it is better to choose a bright, clear photo taken in close-up.

Now go to the profile description. It is limited and should be sufficiently short and clearly express the essence of your profile. Do not write your biography here - it is boring and trite. 

2. Be open

If you want to become famous, you have to open the door to personal life. Look at how celebrities do it. They publish photos from vacations, restaurants, hotel rooms, gyms, etc. If you look through the list of people you follow, there is a big chance that some of them are interesting for you not only because of the photos but also because of the details of their lives. You can choose which part of your life to highlight. There is no need to write or post something deeply personal. But still do not forget to be a little closer to your subscribers, this makes people like and comments more.

3. Cross-promotion

If you look for recognition, I am firmly convinced that in addition to Instagram, you also have accounts on other social networks with hundreds of followers or friends. So why haven't you still cross-promoted your accounts? For example, if after posting a photo on Instagram, you leave a link to it on Facebook (News - Alert) or Twitter, people may come to your page and subscribe. So, it is essential to perform at least good and be active in all social networks.

4. Primetime

I bet, it is not a secret that publishing photos at one time can get a higher response than at another. But in this case, there is no universal advice that will work for everyone. According to statistics, on Instagram, a more significant number of likes are gained by publications that are posted between 8 am and 3 pm. 

But, again, it all depends on your subscribers. For example, if your target audience is youth who spend the whole night in clubs and sleep in the morning and afternoon, then what's the point of uploading a photo at such a time? You can think at what time your subscribers may be active on Instagram and post pictures then or you can also post at a different time for test and look at the feedback.

5. Time to post

This is an advice that is guaranteed to increase the engagement of your subscribers and the popularity of your account. If now you think that you publish photos quite often, you should do it even more often. Frequent publications of high-quality images attract more attention to subscribers and pull up the new audience.

6. Love your subscribers

Have you ever paid attention to how the celebrities show their love for subscribers? Well, there are chances they lie. But what's the difference if this method works? Show your subscribers that you love them, make contests with generous gifts, make live stories and try to be closer to your audience.

It is essential from the very beginning to understand that popularity can only be achieved when you are appealing to the public. Think - what can you offer? The format of photos greatly facilitates the promotion in this social network. Many Instagrammers choose lifestyle type of pictures where they post their beautiful daily routine. One photoshoot while walking around the city is enough to fill their accounts for a long time.

7. Photo editing

You'd better not publish photos that have not been edited. Everything should be perfect: no mess in the background, no bad shots. Make everything look perfectly flawless. Use retouching and light editing to do your best. It is not cheating on subscribers; it's just an Instagram! That's why people come here - to look at successful and beautiful people, to admire the beautiful life can be.

To summarize

So it does not matter whether you want to improve your existing account or create an entirely new Instagram account and want to do business with this social platform, you should follow these five rules that will help you in this Instagram journey.

Nowadays, the opportunities for social networks and Instagram especially are vast. With their help, you can build a strong brand and sometimes vice versa - spoil your reputation. Publish quality content, make vivid descriptions, respond to comments and dedicate all your free time. But make sure that it gives you pleasure, otherwise, nothing will work.
