Curious on how to make your Instagram account with many followers and likes? Charles Porch, Head of Global Creative Development Instagram provides six tips and tricks for your Instagram account to become popular.
1. Customize with passion.
Share photos that you think are most interesting and do show your passion. Do not just upload a photo just because it looks 'pretty' in your Instagram account, "Charles said. Upload photos that are self-deprecating, if necessary make certain characteristics so that your identity is easy to remember.
2. No need to edit excessively.
It's good that photos and videos you upload are not edited in excess. Photos that are natural and authentic will usually attract a lot of likes, while photos that go through the process of redundant edits - such as, whiten the face to look "fake" - will get bad comments. Do not want your account to be a joke with a line of painful comments in the comment field?
3. Share your funny video's.
You can share your funny videos or other videos that will catch the attention of your followers. Based on data owned Instagram, current growth viewers who see the video on Instagram increasing rapidly.
"In the past year, viewers who spend their time looking at videos on Instagram are up to 80%," Charles said. Uploading your funny Boomerang video with the girls? Why not.
4. Use Features Maximally.
Want to show your unique character but do not want to upload the video on your home? Use the features available, such as InstaStory or Live Video. Let your followers know what you normally do when it's free time, or show your inspiring office desk to attract other followers.
5. Make Sure Your Hashtag Is Right.
Use relevant hashtags according to the content you are uploading. To be neat, write your hashtag in the comment field. The right Hashtag makes it easier for people to find your account. Avoid using too many hashtags, which will make others less likely to follow your account.
6. Create a Second Account.
There's nothing wrong if you want to use more than one account. For example, you are a career woman who likes hiking, but you do not want that hobby to appear on your account. Create a second account that can showcase your hobby, then write the name of the second account on your bio. Good luck on making yours popular, guys!
