Wouldn’t it be great to become an Instagram celebrity in a New York second? Sadly, there is no such thing. Instagram, just like anything in life requires a commitment to excellence. This takes time because trying to claim your slice of celebrity is like elbowing your way into a tightly packed unforgiving world of aspiring yet anorexic models. But what if you could walk into a club comprised of forward-thinking visionaries who welcomed you with open arms? Keep reading, I’ll get back to that in a bit.
A legal shortcut for Instagram celebrity? With a plethora of shady services promising seemingly overnight Kardashian-like celebrity, people are looking for safe and viable solutions. Sure, a fast-talking salesperson can promise that you’ll “take-off” in mere moments, but can’t the same be said about a toupee in a fan factory? Purchasing followers is like running toward the future— on a treadmill— you’ll get nowhere.
The secret to social media success in today’s overworked, under-appreciated, stress-filled, sleep-deprived digital world is human authenticity. Instagram success requires human connection and quality interaction that you simply cannot get from bots or fake accounts. Relying on software for social media success is like accepting a business proposition from the Nigerian Minister of Finance— ridiculous.
To grow your audience and expand your reach, you'll want to do more than just post pictures of your product or service. Precisely because we are living in a loneliness epidemic with social isolation, you’ll want to reach out and engage and connect with people. Involve them, ask them questions, and do spend some time commenting on their images. Leverage the convenience of hyper-connectivity to connect with your followers. You never know when a kind word can change a person’s outlook.
Use the right tags, share quality images, and be consistent in your posting. The most popular accounts post between the hours of 8 am to 2 pm. Check out the competition, see which accounts your ideal audience members are following, and keep your finger on the pulse of your industry. Create quality content that will speak to your ideal follower. Make videos sparingly since they (obviously) take up more bandwidth and are less likely to be shared. Let your followers know that you care about them by setting aside some time each day to interact with them.
Keep in mind that Instagram is not a magic bullet, it’s not a matter of “build it and they’ll come”. Truth be told, Instagram marketing requires nothing short of commitment, it requires your time, focus, strategy, and attention. But if you keep your eye on the prize and you position your brand the right way, it will be one of the best forms of marketing you ever do. Luckily there’s a safe and legal way to accelerate your Instagram success. If you’re truly determined to succeed with Instagram quickly, then you’ll want to consider plugging into a brand community like Sticky Likes.
