Ok so I have been very resistant to using Instagram since I have never liked using my phone for apps. I like to use my phone as little as possible and leave it for urgent phone calls.
I am not quite sure when this happened because I used to love being connected with people. It probably has something to do with the fact that since I started working online I am constantly connected with so many people that when I am finished work I like to turn off my laptop and that's it, I am "disconnected.
Anyway back to Instagram. Within a few days of joining I have 166 followeres and I have posted 17 times. I have followed a good few people and liked some images. I have had one hit on my website from Instagram.
I have found that most of the users I come across are women, which is cool because the website I added in my profile is my mommy blog so it is women I want to connect with.
Instagram is quite fun and I am getting into the swing of things, trying different types of posts.
I can see that people like pics of kids, of food and of plants. Yes strange isn't it? I have just taken pics of whatever is closest and happening in my life.
Here are the pics that were the most liked:
First place - a pic of my daughter laughing with 22 likes.
Second place is a pic of my cherry tomato and marigold plants..
In Third place we have my two kids looking cute...
And here in fourth place we have my daughter's breakfast this morning. It looked tasty so I took a pic and up it went...
I have to admit I am enjoying this and I am enjoying trying to see what is popular and playing around with it. It seems like people like the black and white pics but for my plants and the breakfast I wanted the brightness so I never went black and white.
What have you found works on Instagram? And how much traffic do you get from Instagram?
