How to Make Good Instagram Posts
We've shown you how to get followers on Instagram and how to take good quality pictures so now we want to share our secrets for making good posts and be more effective in your search for followers. Once you have these two mastered, you may be wondering why your Instagram isn't growing as fast as you hoped or a picture isn't receiving as many likes as you thought it would.
If you don't know any tricks for making good Instagram posts, this OneHowTo.com article explains them to you step by step:
Download applications to improve the effectiveness of the pictures you post on Instagram like, for example, Typic PRO (add borders, fonts and emoticons) Frametastic or NoCRop (to stop Instagram cropping your photos).
Search for new filters in other photo applications which preserve the quality of your images such as Retrica or similar.
Create content that excites your followers, such as content they can identify with, for example, quotes and funny pictures that they'll want to share, make beautiful Christmas cards to wish them a happy holiday and so on.
To know what your followers like best in your posts, a good too is to use Instagram Analytics, which give you a detailed analysis of the characteristics that attract your followers to your posts.
Don't upload photographs that aren't yours, as these are repetitive and your followers will probably have seen them before. Don't use Google Images! It's fine to repost photos from other Instagram accounts though.
Giveaways are not a good idea either, they will make your post look like spam immediately.
Label or tag others in your Instagram posts. Make sure you use hashtags wisely, don't go crazy and use random ones, but those you know your target audience uses, this way, new people that may be interested in your account will find you.
Avoid spammy hashtags such as #tagsforlikes or#followback, this just won't get you quality audience.
Make calls to action by inviting others to comment or take some another action, as you'll no doubt have seen many times: "Give the picture a like if this has also happened to you"
Do amazing stuff that isn't that usual on Instagram. Use amazing images to create interesting repeating videos such as Boomerang to catch the user's attention.
You can also add music to your Instagram photos too. This will definitely catch your audience's attention.
