If you’re not using Instagram yet, you’re missing out! This visual social platform is taking over the internet. If you’re late to the Instagram game, don’t worry we’re here to help you catapult your profile. Here are 7 important tips to creating an epic Instagram account.
We get it. Not everyone is a photographer. But, everyone does hold a camera in their hand! There are some basic tips to getting better quality photos.
A general rule of filters is to drop the opacity to 50%. Filters can get very distracting from the purpose of the photo and it’s super easy to go too heavy on a preset filter. When you select a filter, tap it again. That's how you can control the intensity of the filter.
PRO TIP: don’t limit yourself to the Instagram filters. The app VSCO has some quality filters.
If you’ve been looking for a filter and nothing seems to be working for you, try a black and white photo instead.
Instagram does a great job of filtering with their hashtags. If you want your photos to be seen, add the hashtags! The more the better! Get clever with them.
Create a lasting impression on your profile. A short witty bio is a great way to show off your personality.
If you’re on Snapchat, you’ll love Instagram stories! They have a very similar user experience so there isn't much of a learning curve!
There are a ton of Instagram tools to help enhance your account.
The ultimate Instagram weapon is consistency. Here at Jive Media we have a defined color palette for quote posts and a consistent filter used for our photography. If you have a consistent theme of photos, that helps your followers spot your content right away! It’s an instant recognition of your photography that helps keep you top-of-mind.
Instagram is very visual. Use that to your advantage! Get creative and unique with your posts. And if you’re ever stuck and don’t know what to post, it's the perfect place to get inspiration and connect with people with similar interests.
