A few years ago I was asked by a friend, who also happens to be a very talented photographer, how she could become famous on Instagram. I replied, “I wish I knew, it’s always been my ambition to become famous on Instagram.”
She replied, “Well, it’s simple, you just have to be nice!”
I laughed and said, “What do you mean?”
She answered, “Just like you, everyone wants to be known as kind, caring, intelligent and funny. Well, it doesn’t matter what kind of a personality you have, people want to know that you care about them and your opinion counts, so try to always be the same, be kind, funny and caring! And don’t worry about whether people are interested in what you have to say or not, they will follow you, because they will find out about your posts in time and they will like them!”
Then I asked myself, “What would I advise any photographer to do, who is starting out on Instagram?”
I asked again my friend who told me, “Just be kind, friendly, nice, caring, and share everything you feel. You will be famous on Instagram.”
I thought for a while and then I said, “Well, that’s easy, but how? How could you be friendly, nice, caring, intelligent and funny when you don’t know anything about photography?”
She replied, “You don’t need to know much about photography to become famous on Instagram. Just start your Instagram account and post beautiful images of what you love. If you see beautiful images that inspire you, copy them and post them.”
And she was right, we all know the power of the image and the feeling it can give. People want to feel good and beautiful. And the best way to make people feel good is by posting images they will like. So, just start!
Here are some tips:
1. Be nice!
We have all met people who we really don’t like. We dislike their smile, their behavior or we simply don’t like their personality. But, they are still human beings. That means they want to be liked and appreciated. When you like someone, you automatically make them feel better about themselves and they will try to return the favor. If you are nice to your partner, kids or friends, you will be very popular.
2. Show your personality!
Your personality is reflected in the way you behave. If you are a caring person, you will post images of those you care about. When you don’t post photos of those you care about, you will appear cold and unloving.
If you are kind and caring, you will post beautiful images that will inspire others.
You don’t need to have perfect skills, just post beautiful images that you find inspirational or like.
The images you choose to post should tell your audience what makes you happy. The more you talk about what you like, the more you will share the images of those you like, which will make you famous on Instagram.
3. Share what inspires you!
We all know how important it is to share our passions, our hobbies and the things we love with people who appreciate them and support us. Instagram allows us to do that easily by posting images that we find beautiful. If you love art, photography, travel, fashion, food or anything else, you will want to share it with the world. You will find so many people who share your interests and can help you develop your career. And if you are a photographer, a fashion designer, a writer, an artist or an actor, you will be able to find a new audience for your work and make money from your images and photos.
