How to Get More Attention on Instagram - #AD

How to Get More Attention on Instagram

Everybody likes seeing new comments and “likes” on their Instagram photos. Here’s how to get more attention to those little square photos you love to upload.

1. Pick a theme. Your theme can be narrow, like a Paleo diet, or more broad, like the beach way of life. If you have an ecommerce platform and you’re selling products, you may want your Instagram to showcase all of your new items. Whatever your theme is, stick to it with every post. People will follow you because they expect to see a certain type of image. If you stray from that theme, you’ll lose followers.

2. Post great content. This seems obvious, but Instagram is filled with low quality, boring images. Only post things that are relevant and interesting to your audience. If you’re selling jewelry, photos of your cat have no place on your Instagram account!

3. Tell a story via your caption. Some pictures become greater when there’s a great story behind them. Are you blankly staring at the ocean waves? Or are you contemplating how large the ocean is and how small you are following your very first surfing experience? Did you just make that shiny bracelet? Or did you make that shiny bracelet from sea glass you found in Costa Rica during your honeymoon?

4. Post on a dependable schedule. Your followers should know when to expect new photos from you. Check out your Instagram stats via Iconosquare to figure out the best days and times to post, then set your calendar to notify you when it’s time to put up a new image. If you veer too far from your schedule, your loyal followers may assume you abandoned your account and they could unfollow you.

5. Engage with your followers. When someone comments on your photos, write back to them. Just don't say “thank you,” either. Write something that will spark a conversation. To encourage engagement, ask a question in your captions. Make sure to reply when people start answering that question!

6. Include hashtags the right way. The right number of hashtags seems to be eleven, based on studies. This can seriously crowd your description, though, and it can be annoying to read a sentence with a bunch of linked hashtags thrown in. Instead, comment on your image with those hashtags. Your image will be searchable without you clogging up the caption.

7. Create branded hashtags. Always use your branded hashtag on your posts and encourage your followers to do the same, either when they share your posts or when they post something that fits with your brand image. Put your branded hashtag in your profile bio, too.

8. Make the most of the Explore tool. This is a great way to find new people to connect with and images that are in-line with your interests. The Explore tool only shows you things that are relevant based on your Instagram activity.

Don’t let that Instagram account just sit there!

Steeped Tea April Customer Special - Business Spotlight Sponsor

 
This is a sponsored post on behalf of Sonya Johnson

April Business Spotlight Sponsor
 
 
 
 
Do you love tea? Looking to jump into the world of loose leaf? Did you know that it is the 2nd most consumed beverage, water being the first? Do you want to infuse the incredible health benefits that tea has to offer into your lifestyle? Whether you are a newbie or a connoisseur, Steeped Tea has you covered! To create the perfect cup of tea, all you have to do is Master the 3 S’s: Scoop, Steep, Sip!
 

 
Steeped Tea offers over 100 different flavors of loose leaf tea along with teapots, measuring spoons, cups, and infusers. We even offer mixes, rubs and soap all made with tea! Steeped Tea began as a passionate search for the perfect cup of tea. Since Steeped Tea has only been offered in the U.S. since May 2013, you have the TEA-riffic ground floor opportunity of becoming a pioneer in the continuing growth of the tea industry. Although the company is fairly new to the U.S., it is a well established company that started in Canada on October 23, 2006. Canada has worked through all the obstacles that new companies face, and now the U.S. gets to benefit from that! In 2012 Steeped Tea Founders Hatem & Tonia Jahshan appeared on CBC’s Dragons’ Den (Canada’s version of Shark Tank) and partnered with our incredible investors, David Chilton and Jim Treliving. With their help and advice, Steeped Tea was launched in the U.S.
 
 
The $99 startup fee (with optional add-ons) provides you with all you need to get started, plus there is always an additional sign up bonus gift of the month provided by the company. Steeped Tea offers amazing incentives for those who really want to build a business but also extremely low minimum sales requirements (only $100 in sales/purchases within 6 months) for just an avid tea drinker wanting high quality products at great prices!
 
 
What is your "WHY" for the things you do? Here's my "WHY" for joining this amazing company called Steeped Tea. Many years ago, I developed my love for tea when my family and I attended High Tea at the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans. It was one of the most enchanting experiences of my life. Several years later my mother-in-law and I would share a cup of tea together each night after putting my daughter to bed. She is now in heaven, but I will cherish forever the memory of those moments we spent together. You see...to me tea is so much more than just tea...it is love, comfort, family, friendship, peace, tranquility, togetherness (and solitude when I need it). It can pick me up or calm me down. There's so much magic in that cup! What started out as just a hobby for me to get discounted quality tea has now turned into a passion that has led to the most rewarding opportuniiTEA.
 
 
 
Whether you're looking for a "fulltime", "part time", or just a "my own tea time" opportunity, Steeped Tea has everything you want. Come along and share a cuppa tea! You'll be so glad you did!

Loving our Sterling Silver Owl Necklace from Jewelry in Candles - Product Review

*Disclaimer - I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising. “The  product, , information,  have been provided. In no way did this alter my opinion of their products. All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest, true and my own.*
 
 


We were recently sent a candle from Jewelry in Candles with Stephanie. She introduced us to a new Pink Flame Candle in their Charm America collection. Each candle comes with a necklace with a beautiful charm. First off each of these special candles comes in the black box you see pictured and packed to ensure that it arrives safely.

Of course when we received it we immediately had to light it. The scent of our candle was Jasmine and smelled amazing. The hard part was waiting patiently for our special surprise to show. I burned it for approx. 3 to 4 hours for 3 days and was then able to retrieve our surprise.

We couldn't wait to open it to see which charm necklace we received. It was so worth the wait as we received an adorable silver owl necklace. My nine year old daughter was with me when I did the reveal and she immediately got excited. I love it and she made a comment on how cute it was. I have a feeling that she will be keeping this one...lol
 

Each necklace in these particular candles are from Charm America. I looked up the necklace we received on their site to see how much it retailed and found out that it is sterling silver and retails for $40. We absolutely love it and so glad that we received it.

Also included with our necklace was a slip of paper. On the paper stated that we received a code for 30% off a future purchase. Yep that makes 3 gifts in one. What could possibly get any better? NOTHING!!!

If you are looking for a unique gift for someone then this is the perfect gift. Not a great gift but two gifts in one. Enjoy the lovely scented candle and will burn for hours upon hours and then enjoy the beautiful piece of jewelry that you will receive as well.
 
 
 
If you have any question please feel free to contact Stephanie directly and be sure to follow her facebook page as well.
