How To Become An Instagram Influencer?
Would you like to be a travel Instagram influencer? This article is geared towards building an influencer photographer profile; however, the techniques will work in any niche, including travel..
It’s a great way to make money and have a lot of fun! But, it’s not as easy as it looks. First, you must learn how to grow your Insta followers fast to become successful.
In this article, we will teach you how to do just that!
We will also share tips on being a better photographer and creating more engaging content.
Become a Better Photographer or Videographer
If you’re starting, your photography skills are likely not where they need to be. And that’s okay! Everyone has to start somewhere.
The first step is to teach yourself how to use your camera. If you don’t have a DSLR or a mirrorless camera, don’t worry. You can still produce great content with a smartphone camera.
Many free photography classes and workshops are available online that can teach you the basics of photography and videography.
Once you understand the basics well, start practicing as much as possible!
A great way to improve your skills is by taking photos and videos of things you see every day.
I Will Share My Most Popular Instagram Posts
If you look at the graphic in the header, you will see my most popular posts, and with that post in the top left corner, I gained 1,726 new followers.
The Secret To That Instagram Post’s Success Is
I designed and created a high-value piece of content that showed men some of the best poses they can use when they have their next Instagram model photoshoot or selfie.
I then boosted that post in countries like India and Brazil as the costs are much cheaper than running a campaign in the USA or Europe.
I acquired new Instagram followers for about .02 cents USD a piece.
I think the reason this post worked so well is that it provided immediate value and used great demographic targeting.
For Me, Organic Instagram Growth Is Nearly Zero
I have included some best practices below.
Organic growth is essential if you want to be an Instagram influencer. What is organic growth? It’s simply growing your account without using any paid services.
There used to be some ways to grow your account organically, but for me, only about 2% of my audience sees my posts now.
The most important thing is to produce high-quality content that will engage your audience. Then, as your content becomes more popular, you will start to see more people following you.
Another great way to organically grow your account is by interacting with other users on the platform.
Another Instagram tip is by liking and commenting on their photos and videos and tagging them in your posts.
If you want to become an Instagram influencer, start by using these tips to grow your account fast.
I have shifted much of my digital marketing focus to building and SEOing my website, which teaches photography, and also shows men and women how to pose like a model.
It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and money – but if you’re passionate about photography or travel, it will be worth it in the end.
What other ways do you think someone could grow their Instagram quickly?
