In a nutshell, try to put together all the little tricks I’m about to provide you and you’ll see that, slowly, you too will be able to create your audience.
The important thing is to be passionate, always and in any case, and not to seek popularity at all costs because this rarely leads to long-term results, remember it.
Use the Hashtag
Let’s start this guide on how to become popular on Instagram (if we want to call it) by hashtags.
Similar to what happens on Twitter and Facebook, even on Instagram you can “tag” your posts, ie their own shots, adding them tags that indicate the topics covered in them and increase their visibility by other users of the service.
Choosing the right hashtags is essential to make your photos known to the Instagram public, so I advise you to carefully evaluate the labels to “stick” to your shots before sharing them online. Basically, there are two guidelines to follow: relevance and popularity.
Given that do not use two hundred different hashtags on a single photo (it takes three or four “suitable”), I suggest you to search among the trends of Instagram and check which are the most used hastag on the service.
To find out what are the most popular hashtags of the moment you can take advantage of the Websta website, which shows what are the 100 most used hashtags on Instagram in real time. The service is free and no registration is required to be used.
Alternatively, you can contact Top Hashtag, an Internet site that works almost like the one I mentioned earlier.
If among the most popular hashtags there is someone relevant to the photos you are about to post, use it without thinking twice. Otherwise, do not go “off topic” and look for the road of originality.
With this, I mean that you should do a search on Instagram, find photos similar to those you are about to post and take a cue from the most popular hashtag in the latter.
The important thing is not to be too generic and always choose the most popular tags for certain topics.
Create your own style
Another good way to try to get popularity on Instagram is to create your own well-defined style of photography.
This does not mean that you must always use the same effects but that you have to try to put your own “signature” to the images, so that other users can become attached to the way you take photos and immediately recognize your shots among all others.
If you want some examples of “effective” photographs that can attract the public’s attention, start the Instagram app, press the button with the magnifying glass at the bottom and take a look at the most visited images of the moment.
You will notice that many have some elements in common: try to “capture” them and make them yours to transfer them to your images.
And then, remember: better to publish a photo, beautiful, every week that two, ugly, every day. In short, do not have the desire to appear but put on Instagram only those photos that really deserve to be seen and to receive the likes of others.
If you prefer, you can view the list of the most popular content on the famous app also through the Iconsquare Internet site that allows you to access Instagram from your computer (if you remember I have spoken in detail in our guide on how to use Instagram on the PC ). All completely free, of course.
Share on other social networks
I know it will seem trivial but another effective way to become popular on Instagram and, consequently, to implement the attention of others consists undoubtedly sharing their shots on other social networks: Facebook and Twitter in the first place.
This operation can be done manually, connecting your Instagram account to other social accounts and pressing on one of the buttons located under the Share heading in the screen that opens after editing your photo in Instagram, or automatically.
To connect your Instagram account with Facebook, Twitter and/or other supported social networking services access the app and then press the icon of the little man that is placed in the lower right corner of the main menu.
Next, select the gear icon located at the top right, go to the Linked Accounts menu attached to the Settings section and select the social network of your interest from the list of available social services.
After providing permission for the publication of photos and videos on the other social, Instagram will automatically post your content on the latter.
You do not have to do is take your photos normally and select the buttons referring to the social networks of interest at the time of publication. Very simple!
If you want to make sure that all the photos posted on Instagram are also published on Facebook and Twitter without you having to move a finger, install IFTTT.
After downloading the app on your smartphone, create your free account on IFTTT and access the screen with the “recipes” (the scripts that allow interaction between the various Web services) by first pressing the mortar icon located at the top of the right and then on the one in the form of +.
Then press the magnifying glass icon and search terms like Instagram Twitter or Instagram Facebook to access all the recipes that allow you to automatically post the photos and videos of Instagram on various social networks.
When you find a script that interests you and you want to activate sluggish above then tap the Add button to activate it. The first time you use IFTTT you will be asked to authorize the service to access your social accounts: accept.
Interact with other users
Finally, I want to underline something that many underestimate but that can be very important to become “famous” on Instagram: the fact that Instagram is basically a social network and, as such, requires a good degree of interaction.
If you want to make yourself known, you can not expect everyone to come looking for you, this seems obvious to us.
So browse the photos of other users (maybe the most popular) and comment on calling the subject of the shot, the author of the same and maybe even other commentators (if you do not know how to do mention to the instructions that I have provided in our guide on how to mention on Instagram ).
Try to create discussions in photos relevant to what you do, make criticisms and compliments to their authors, talk about the fact that you love certain types of shots, etc.
You could attract the attention of different people and receive new followers for personal relationships that you can create within Instagram and not just because you’ve posted a nice picture.
Doing so in this way is not to be excluded the hypothesis that with the passage of time you can establish friendship with other users of the famous app having the same interests (for example, the love for a particular country, the passion for kitchen or that for movies) and with which to make guest posts, that is to say the exclusive photos on your account by returning the favor if necessary. Not bad, right?
