Instagram relies on images and how it engages users to connect with your business and services. If it’s a fashion brand, clothes and different fashion events are usually shown through pictures. If it’s a diner, the menu offerings are presented along with the customers who hang out at your diner. Know what your products and services are and always make sure to present good pictures that reflect your brand.

Some brands utilize their Instagram sites to encourage their users to submit pictures along with a specific hashtag, which shows them using your products or patronizing your offered services. This user-generated hashtag can help other Instagram users to identify this hashtag with your brand. This can make your followers feel like they are a part of the brand and in return, you gain their loyalty in return. Imagine the rush you can feel when you see your Instagram hashtag in the search list along with really lovely pictures.

4. Study other brands who use Instagram and learn from them

One good way to help your business be known out there is to learn from other reputable institutions who use Instagram in attracting more customers and maintaining their regulars. The energy drink brand, Red Bull, now has a million followers on Instagram. Their pictures are high-quality, showcasing different kinds of extreme sports and other activities. Sometimes, the pictures are captioned with the hashtag #givesyouwings.

  1. Hi Lauren,
    Do you know if Instagram has an image size limit? What size image do you find best to share on this platform?

    1. Instagram does have an image size limit, because you have to crop the picture first before you upload it on the said site.
