Instagram has rules that people don’t want you to know. They want you to operate in the dark while they win. Well, enough is enough. We ought to have guiding principles that separate us from the crowd. That means you need to do what needs to be done and eliminate all the rest because it is just wasting your time. If you are a pro at this, then you need to refine these parts to see what you will make out of it. If you don’t know there are rules, then you need to redefine your account by following these steps in this article:
Making use of photos in natural light
Photos look classier and more real when they have natural brightness of the light. This doesn’t mean you should not depend so much on photo editing and using flash. You should. Just make sure you don’t make a fuss out of it and use it on every photo. You will appear that you are thirsty for attention, and that’s too bad for your image and reputation.
Picking a relevant Instagram handle
An Instagram handle shows who you are and how it relates to the niche you are in. This small judgment happens when an Instagram user searches for a particular service, photo, or product on Instagram. The search will bring results. Instagram users are likely to select accounts that have matched the criteria in terms of the username and handle name used.
If the two are connected, then you ought to have something of significance to offer. And that’s what people are looking for.
Clear and focused photos
Nobody should struggle to know what you have posted or who is in a particular image. It should be clear and concise from the start. Make sure that you have the best camera around you and that you edit your photos. The key is to allow the pop effect to do its thing. A good yardstick is to look if the picture you are about to post is giving the appropriate focus. If not, then you are offering something blurry, or you need to brush up on your editing skills.
Another food photo
One thing is true: Instagram users do not care what you eat. Unless you are a professional food blogger or photographer whose every article and photo is on food. Those are the only times people might expect such posts. But if it’s irrelevant to your profile, don’t post what you ate for lunch. It delivers no value to anyone.
Posting personal stuff
But aren’t you tired of reading captions that have too much information and that hardly give you something of great importance? Also, posting a lot of private affairs creates an image of your insecurity and labels you as insecure and unable to stand up for yourself. You are waiting for someone to do something for your life. That’s what you are communicating.
This type of behavior is not healthy due to the presence of hackers.
Using technological shortcuts
The Instagram experience can be supplemented with apps and integration tools. In some cases, this means you can automate likes and comments and even follows. As much you can be saving time on Instagram, you will be betting on a huge risk. Your account can be closed down.
