If you’ve read the bible occasionally like I have, you may be familiar with that great book’s first story. It was said in the beginning; let there be light. And so there was. Of course, all this happened so many thousands of years ago, I couldn’t honestly tell you just how bright this light was. Now, this reminds me of another great story. This light really does shine bright. And you usually see it once a year around Christmas time.
Anyhow, I think this anecdote was long enough, can’t be spoiling you all now, but I think it’s a good lead-in to what I want to talk about today. It’s all about that Instagram account of yours. First things first though, if the number of Instagram followers you have right now is but a drop in the ocean, do yourself a favor and go buy some. Secondly, and this is important, Instagram is all about that photo of yours. So, make it bright, why don’t you.
And, as they say, the rest will take care of itself. But not quite. Not so fast. To make your platform an attractive investment for your future organic followers, you need to be judicious in the way you utilize the platform’s (so many) filters. Perhaps the second important thing alongside the regular exercise of making sure that your Insta photos are bright enough and compatible for all other platform users (there’s just no telling what devices they’ll be using) and on other platforms and websites, is that of the regularity of your posting regime.
If you’ve got one post going out per day, then you’re off to a good start. Back to the photo-shop. Apart from monitoring the brightness of your photos, do make sure that you’ve got more than a dash of color added to them. Unless they’re all bloodsuckers who shun the daylight, there’s nothing that irks viewers more than dark, dim and gloomy presentations. And that’s only if they can see them.
The same goes for your videos, assuming you will be publishing these. While on the subject of videos, like your captions and your writing posts, do try to keep your videos short, say, no longer than a minute. My main motivation for saying this is to give due consideration to those (potential) followers who will have limitations. It wouldn’t be nice to lose what could be potentially genuine followers when they’re cut off so all of a sudden.
Well now, I was going to take a break, but just look how far we’ve come. Progress, dear readers. So, may as well finish this post, and the best of luck to you all afterwards. And if I can finish off with something a little closer to home to me. Writing. For many, this is a dread, like a disease or the plague. People are so afraid of doing it because they fear that they just can’t write. But it’s easy. And there’s nothing that a little practice can’t get write for you.
