6 quick tips on how to get your business on Instagram
Getting your business on Instagram might seem like an intimidating thing if you're never done it before. I'm here to tell you not to worry because I'll go over 6 quick steps on how to do that very act. Did you know that Instagram has over 1,000,000,000 downloads and 400,000,000+ reviews on their app? This is on Android alone (not sure about apple because I don't use it lol) Posting to Instagram is pretty simple, you just use your camera and take a picture, then upload it to Instagram later on. You can choose a filter if you'd like, or just post the original. I don't tend to use filters when there are actual people or animals in my photos because I don't want them to look odd. If I'm posting something that is a picture of art, prints, cartoons, etc. I will use a filter to make it look as close to the original or use something that I think looks cool lol.Here are the 6 quick tips on how to get your business on Instagram
So let's get to it, shall we
After you install the app, tap on the camera icon and then tap "Register" and sign up for your new Instagram account. Pick your username wisely because you'll want it to be as close to your business name as possible. Once you fill out the email, name, and anything else it requires for registration, you're done
Well, you'll have to submit it and log in, but that's understandable.
Add a personal photo or something like a picture of your building to increase the chances that you don't look like a robot. You should probably avoid just using your business logo since you won't get as much traction when it comes to obtaining followers.
Be sure to connect your account to all of your other social media accounts and following everyone you're connected to. This will get your your initial followers in return and start off your Instagram journey
If you don't autofollow them through the app, be sure to post your URL onto facebook and ask people to share it or follow themselves. This will usually get you a few additional follows.
Make a brandable hashtag which is unique and related to your business. This will allow you to get tagged on Instagram when someone is using a hashtag, it won't happen often, but it's nice when it does
Start sharing pictures and tagging them. You can add up to 30 tags within a post and the comments section, so use them wisely. Some people will say to not post all 30 under your description of each picture, but I do anyway and it works just fine. Just be sure to say something along the lines of "We're a new account and tags help us get found" then add your 30 tags. I like to add my main tags in a notepad file on my phone so that I can just copy and paste them into my post with ease
It's not difficult to get on Instagram and begin posting, but for some people it's frightening. I would recommend to take baby steps when posting and learn how everything works before thinking you're an Instagram pro lol. You can do it, and if you have any questions you can easily post them here in the comments section and I'll get to them when I'm online
