The world is changing, and we’re seeing the rise of more and more people becoming famous on social media. With over 1 billion active monthly users on Instagram alone, there’s no better time to use this platform for your own personal brand. Here are some tips to help you get started!
You might think that being on Instagram is all fun and games, but there’s more to it than just posting coffee shop pictures. You have to be careful when creating social media content because if anything goes wrong followers will notice your lies!
In the past year alone we’ve seen celebrities fall from grace with their fans after they were caught faking things like live streams or even skincare tutorials–so for those looking into becoming influencers beware: It isn’t enough anymore simply making good vibes; you need great posts too.
How to become Instagram famous
1. Use a personal profile photo rather than a logo
From a personal platform, influencer LaShawn Wiltz recommends putting your best face forward. “Instagram is all about the YOU behind an account; people come to Instagram for entertainment and want you as yourself not some corporate logo,” she says on her blog. Almost everyone who has gained fame on this app uses their own picture in profile photos – so why wouldn’t we?
2. Keep your bio fresh
Your bio is the first thing people see, so it should give them a clear concise idea about what your account is all about. Add color and save space with evocative emoji to keep visitors engaged!
Look at this example: “Hello stranger! My name’s Victoria.” You can’t go wrong by telling new followers who you are in an interesting way while keeping things short enough for anyone – even those without much time on their hands-to understand.
3. Find your niche
Find what you’re most passionate about sharing and document it with photos, videos or an online course. Share your passion to make the world better for everyone! Make instagram reels to get you more attractions that may help you reach a wider audience.
4. Define your ideal audience
Finding a niche is important to connect with your target audience, but you don’t have to limit yourself. Share many aspects of life and interests for the best results!
Let’s say your ideal follower is likely a woman in her late 20s or 30s who has big dreams and an open heart ready give chance on herself— she might also relate some experiences from infertility or body insecurity due what they’ve been going through themselves as well find motivation from your business expertise when following along at home via social media posts (or other means).
You can share anything about them including any hobbies; however remember not every one will connect so make sure it’s something relatable before putting all eggs into 1 basket.
5. Be open and transparent
If you want to make real connections on Instagram, don’t be fake. “The most important thing is vulnerability and honesty,” says Cheryl Chan of Entrepreneur magazine. “People are using social media as a way connect–or at least relate—to others.” Being open about your life will allow for more meaningful relationships with followers who’ll stick by your side through thick or thin while also trusting every decision that’s been made in regard to their favorite brands/partnerships; Devoted fans can even provide feedback!
6. Plan ahead
Planning your future posts and subjects is a great way to stay organized when you’re on Instagram. It also lets you have more control over what’s coming out, so if anything goes wrong it will be easy fix!
All about organization- knowing what’s ahead allows for preparation which helps with moments or events as they arise because there isn’t any gap in content without foresight of its necessity beforehand.
7. Choose brand partnerships that fit
Brand partnerships are a valuable source of income for Instagram influencers but they can also provide exposure. “I often turn down opportunities because I don’t like the product or it doesn’t fit with my brand,” says Peter, who has over 2.8M followers on his photography account @petermckinnon
If you see an awesome company that your audience would really enjoy following and supporting then reach out in order not miss this chance!
8. Don’t let haters get you down
Haters are always going to hate, but that doesn’t make it less challenging to handle bad vibes and harassment on Instagram when they happen.
I try listening with an open mind for what people say because sometimes you’ll get constructive criticism from actual accounts instead of just being trolled all day by trolls (which is unfortunate). For the mean ones though? Remember everyone else has feelings too so don’t take their words personally–compassion helps me remember this!
9. Remember to disconnect sometimes
Social media is all the rage these days, but it can sometimes be hard to remember what life was like before we had Facebook.
I once heard someone compare social networking with sex: when you’re in a relationship and your partner has their arm around you while watching TV together on Netflix; then afterwards there will still always remain some kind of connection between each other even if they choose not look at one another because eventually everything sticks hair out into space!
There needs more self-love & mental health awareness too – let us enjoy our relationships online without feeling guilty about how much time apart from them might mess up our feelings or something else entirely (things could get worse).
10. Keep mental health top of mind
“I know many nomads that appear to ‘have it all,’ but suffer from depression and anxiety because of this lifestyle.”
However, there is a way out for those who are willing. Mental health can be maintained through meditation or therapy while on-the job disability may provide you time with family members if living remotely leaves no opportunity otherwise – just make sure they’re someone close enough so as not too lose yourself in the process!
