Do you want to be as famous as a Kardashian, have millions of followers and influence others through your experiences? Perhaps you want to earn money from it. This is possible in today’s social media territory. Word of caution, there is no guarantee of success, but you can try.
1. Who are you?
Decide on what image you want the world to see and stick to it. It is easier to be authentic and yourself. Don’t copy others. You are unique, use it to your advantage.
2. Snap those photos
Make sure the photos you post are clear and interesting. Unless you sell makeup, close-up selfies become boring. Share experiences. Remember the old saying; “a picture speaks a 1000 words”. Instagram is about quantity and quality. Post regularly. Give people a reason to like, share and comment on your posts.
3. Follow others
Follow as many people as you can. Comment positively on their posts. The more you interact with others the more they will interact with you.
Whether you use Instagram for fun or to generate money, be careful of what you post, how you comment and who you like. You don’t want posts from the past to haunt you in the future.
