Marketing and advertising is a family tradition. Not in the sense that I am referring to a family owned business. But I may as well be because the subject matter of this post is relevant. It will be relevant to you if you are the co-proprietor of a family registered business. Or sole owner. Many of you reading this right now may be famously classed as this generation’s millennials.
A majority of readers will have a short span of attention whilst reading material from their smartphones or laptops for all the obvious and understandable reasons. Instagram, as you should know, is more focused on making a visual impact. Keeping all things relevant, this is how to get real followers on Instagram.
It’s not the only way, of course. There are many more that you can read about and practice with on your current profile page. Always just remember to keep on posting on a regular basis, yet another way to gain traction on your network and earn the support of new followers.
You will be surprised to learn that there are smart algorithms that look out for photographic or graphically designed images over and above the convention of just posting text. Instagram wasn’t designed for just words. And you’ll be pleased to know that it’s an effective device to keep your prose short. Keep your headings short and keep these relevant to your pic’s.
I may as well tell you that this detection process of picking out and foregrounding graphic impressions on search engines is not quite as effective as it is with the text. But with further advancements in software technologies, this process will become more effective and quicker too. Returning to how algorithms respond to published text, it responds to published posts’ headings too. But if the heading is far too long, it tends to lose the thread, if you will.
In keeping your heading relevant to your Instagram photographs, you can work on a really striking title. Keep it short and sweet and attract the notice of curious minds. Curious minds also have a thing with numbers. They’ll want to know why one particular platform, it could be yours, has so many followers. There’s this perception that something grand and great must be happening. Or is it the product.
And that’s the challenge to you. To work hard at keeping up the quality of your regular posting so that these folks will become avid followers too.
Now, to speed things up, I encourage you to buy your Instagram followers. Do not worry about stigma’s and misconceptions attached to this. Just know that many successful startups have gathered steam in this manner. And the rich and famous have been doing it for years already, long since before this young upstart, otherwise known as Instagram, arrived on the scene. Speaking of which, there is the matter of my family.
Which means I have to go. Good luck with your work.
