Be an Instagram Pro!
Tips from Top Instagrammer @lielaine
1) Share your best work (or work that you like the most).
If you’re taking photos of a specific architecture, try not to post 5+ photos of the same fixture. It might get boring, and your feed will look bland. Even if I have a few shots of the same place, I pace them out so that my feed looks diverse and interesting.
2) Don’t bombard your followers with several posts in one go
The most I recommend is 3 a day, so one when you wake up, one during the afternoon and one at night. Otherwise your followers might find it too spammy, and unfollow you.
3) Respond and interact with your followers
Who knows, you might go from Instagram friends to real life friends. Due to the interaction between the people who I follow, those who follow me and myself I’ve met a lot of good friends through Instagram. For example in Hong Kong, there’s @vdubl, @jesso, @edwardkb, @vnthota, @hang_ho, @johnny__to, @rambler15 etc etc etc. We even regularly shoot together on weekends and explore new places.
