From the mouth of babes, dept….
I use Instagram almost entirely for personal enjoyment, although I have used images I’ve taken for blog posts and other material. (See the last resource for free and cheap stock photo sites for your blog.)
However, I know some people and brands use it to build an audience.
My 10 year old is on it now, so I follow all her followers to make sure they’re friends, and not creeps.
One girl who’s a family friend gets over 100 likes on each pic she posts! Argh! A good “engagement” for me is 10 likes.
So I ran into her the other day and asked her what she does. She gave me one really good tip:
Take a screen capture of someone else’s feed and upload that as a new Instagram pic, then tell everyone to follow that person.
This type of selfless promotion gets people to bend over backwards to like and comment on her pics.
Great tip I thought, so I’m sharing it here.
Does anyone else use Instagram for marketing or networking, and do you have any tips?
