Growing an engaged, authentic following on Instagram is an important part of your marketing strategy if you're a personal brand. You want to look professional and you want to attract the right kind of community, so make sure you are minding your manners on Instagram by using correct tagging and growth strategies, which we'll walk you through in this episode of The Decorettes.
Problem: It’s getting harder and harder to grow an authentic, engaged social media presence- so frustrating. And people aren’t falling for those old tactics that some still use to get people to pay attention to you. So we’ve got three ways to mind your manners and not look like sleazy and desperate on Instagram.
IG tagging of photos: Always tag people if you use their content- always! And not hidden in a hashtag bank. Give people credit- it’s how many accounts grow their following. Tag the image and give credit in the caption.
SPAM comments- Don’t leave them! This is anything that’s super generic and probably done by a bot (which is actually against IG policy and they could shut you down). Leave something meaningful that was obviously created for someone’s particular image. Don’t ask people to follow you in comments.
Buying followers- Remember how people use to make up boyfriends in high school- this is way worse. Do you buy friends in real life? Here’s what it looks like- it looks like you have thousands of followers and then no likes, no comments- ugh...phony!
