Instagram is one blow minding app. It has really developed into a great way for brands and influencers to connect. It is also a gateway to sell just about anything. These days you cant scroll your feed without finding something someone is trying to sell. That being said, it can seem a bit overwhelming and intimidating. I have some great tips on how to improve your social presence.
I can’t tell you how important hashtags are when posting. There are many that you need to stay away from due to be over shadowed. These hashtags are a huge no-no when posting. To find out what those hashtags are, there are many websites you can google to find out. The lists are long. Make sure to not use any of those listed hashtags. It doesn’t make your profile look good to Instagram. You can also look up the most popular hashtags to use that could possibly get you on the Explore page. The more you can make the Explore page, the more ways people can find you.
Blogging is a fun job, only of you make it fun. If you feel at times that you are doing all you can, and seem like it’s not growing as quickly as you would like, make sure you are staying patient. Everything takes time. Using the correct backlinks in your blog is very important. If you are talking about a brand , or a company and you are posting about them, make sure that you add their business link so people can get back to the business that you are talking about. Back links help so good with helping people find what they need. It is very important that you always use the appropriate backlinks.
Engaging with other bloggers is critical to your growth. You have to find the right bloggers that are within your niche and communicate with them. Joining into a giveaway or shout out is a huge way to spread your growth .Reaching out to other bloggers for a guest post is a great way to grow your presence on social media too. Commenting on other bloggers pictures will only help your posts. the engagement rate goes up also with the instagram algorithm. It can change constantly, so always be on the lookout for new changes within the social media platforms. It really is great getting to know the same people doing the same job as you. You can always throw ideas off each other, and you will have friends for life.
The best thing to do when posting anything on any of your social media platforms is tagging. Collaborations come in handy this way, especially if your engagement is high. If you are wearing a cute outfit or a cute pair of shoes, tag the brand. They will have an easier time finding you this way. If you are doing a story on your Instagram channel, tag the brand in your stories. It’s crazy how many times I received shout out from a huge brand or influencer because I simply tagged them in my stories or my post. A little goes a long way if you know what I mean. If you are a fashion influencer, and you are some really great platforms such as Reward Style, make sure to always use the appropriate tags when posting.
CONNECTION OF ALL PLATFORMS
Social Media profiles such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and now TIk Tok is very important for your brand. These are the platforms where everyone and anyone can find you. You want to make sure if you have a blog, or domain, or any type of website that is your main page, that all your social medias are linked directly to your page. If someone is reading one of your great posts, they may certainly want to follow you on all other platforms as well. It’s a great idea to have a follow widget in your blog with all your social media icons. They can press it and follow. It’s that easy. WordPress is one of the best platforms for blogs. They are easy to work with and they stay up to date on all their upgrades.
THE USE OF EMOJIS
Emojis are a complicated thing when it comes to Instagram. I feel they are frowned upon by the algorithm, and it really isn’t good engagement protocol. The best bet is to skip the hearts and the emojis and really give a sincere comment. I feel that emoji comments bring down the engagement rating on your feed. I prefer to have words in my comments. Don’t get me wrong, it’s cute when someone leaves an emoji, but for rating your engagement, it really doesn’t help.
The ultimate win when owning blog is keeping yourself patient through the process. It is very important to know that good content is vital to a good social media platform too. Do not copy someone. Be creative and unique. There are so many bloggers sharing the same things, same clthes, same shoes. Open yourself up to new possibilities, and be original. That is what it’s all about. You can also use great websites to utilize your blog better such as the bloggers outreach program.
