If you’re trying to build up a strong presence on Instagram – what better way than to mimic successful influencers? Considering these influencers have already built up their own following, learning from them could help you emulate their success.
While there are many things traits and habits that top Instagram influencers tend to share in common, the four that are invariably the most effective are:
- Quality over quantity
Every post that you publish on Instagram should be carefully and deliberately weighed. The idea that you can just keep publishing posts and hope that some stick is not very successful, and will likely damage your credibility. That is why top influencers focus on publishing high quality content that they feel their followers will like – and you should do the same.
- Be passionate
Normally Instagram pages are focused on a specific area of interest – one that (presumably) you’re passionate about. It is important that you display that passion in the content that you publish, as it will help you to attract others who are also passionate about it.
- Make your captions count
Although Instagram is a visual platform – your captions matter a lot more than you may realize. It is your chance to provide context to your image, mix in some humor, or even credit others that you’re collaborating with. Of course it is also where you’ll want to place your hashtags.
- Use trending hashtags wisely
It can be tempting to jump on board every trending hashtag in an effort to give your Instagram presence more exposure. However if you do that your Instagram page will very quickly start to just be a mix of posts trying to capitalize on trends. Making use of trending hashtags is definitely something top influencers do – but they do so sparingly, and only post into one when they have something worth posting.
- Network with other Instagrammers
As a social platform Instagram is all about establishing connections – and you’d be surprised how much of a difference networking with other Instagrammers can make. Find Instagrammers that you admire or want to emulate, follow them, comment, and start networking. As your network grows you may even want to collaborate with them to your mutual benefit.
When you first start out it may seem as though your following is growing slowly – but as it does the rate at which it grows will normally pick up. Keep learning from successful Instagram influencers and you should be on the right track – especially if you also tune in to some of the webinars they may host.
