If there is one thing that irritates me, it is this. It’s the sloppiness of work and the careless lack of regard for the consumer. Show them that you value their support from the get-go and you could end up with a long-term and rewarding association, what with your business growing and all. Here are six things you can do to make your Instagram platform stand out, looking every bit as professional as the icon’s leading influencers do.
When you buy followers Instagram aficionados love to see on their own platform, you have no idea how this elevates your own profile. You’re endeavoring to enter a niche area. It’s up to you to work beyond the exposure you’re given through your purchase and not just accept that it’s merely every Dick, Tom and Harry that’s going to be supporting you.
Hashtags and neatness, as far as I am concerned, go hand in hand. Hashtags must be indicative of a recognizable brand and not look like the dog’s porridge of latter morning. Hashtag branding needs to be handled with care.
Creating simplicity works more in your favor than for your target markets. Use Insta tools to make your life that much easier. It’s there to help you be organized in your daily work too.
Caption writing entails adding a little extra to the story that goes as follows. The cliché goes that a picture is a story told in a thousand words, not so. But when it is commercially driven, surely some polite explanation helps matters to hand. Your picture needs to sell your product. A brief demo can still confuse the viewer or leave him hesitant or undecided. A brief and relevant explanation, written a tad persuasively could see your product sold.
By now, you will appreciate that I will appreciate regular editing and checking of all work from now on. If you are somehow able to toss rubbish onto my platform or into my in-tray (although I fail to see how you will be able to pull this off if you are unprofessional), you do know what I am going to do with it, don’t you. See that bin over there? It’s called the trashcan. That’s where your post goes. Bye-bye. End of story.
So, by now, I hope you realize the value of giving all aspects of your Instagram work just that little extra dash of professionalism. You should never take your profile and your followers for granted. Do not ever believe that they are ignorant. Even if they were (that’s rarely the case), irreverent, irrelevant and illogical posts, bullet-holed with errors as they are, are hardly going to help. You sow confusion and your consumer can never make head or tail what you’re trying to drive at. And now that they’re up to speed with the frenetic pace of social media circles, they’re not going to hang around trying to decipher your cryptic work.
And without any further ado, it’s bye-bye to you.
