6 Instagram Blogging Tips To Boost Your Blog’s Visibility
1. USE HASHTAG – Hashtag is one of the best way to make your post go viral. When you’re sharing an Image, try to include hashtag related to that image so it can be visible to people who also are not in your followers list.
For instance; if you share an image related to food and add hashtag #FOOD, other Instagram users who search posts on Food can see your post which you include hashtag food
2. CLEAR, AND CUTE DISPLAY PICTURE – When i mean by cute is; you should try to be in a pleasing position and cool facial expression for the picture you want to use as display picture. Additional you shouldn’t try to BLUR it or add some kind of effect in the name of editing so much that the image becomes distorted.
It is important your profile picture looks clearer else it might send a wrong signal to those who wish to follow you.

3. FOLLOW PEOPLE INLINE WITH YOUR NICHE – Try to follow people who are the same niche with you. Doing this has two benefits;
(i) A mutual relationship can arise in which the other person will be including you in his/her posts.
(ii) If the person you follow is an expert who has a large amount of followers and engagement, you’ll be able to learn some extra tips on how the person does it.
4. USE INFORMATIVE IMAGES RELATED TO YOUR NICHE – It is one thing to have followers, while its another thing to engage them. Ensure what you try to produce is related to what you mentioned in your bio as that is what people would be looking forward to from you.
For instance, if you mentioned in your bio that you’re a Fashion Blogger, most of your followers are likely to be those who are interested in fashion. Once you’ve put up a fashion post on your blog, bring one or two of the images to Instagram and do not forget to add your URL on those pictures.
Doing so and adding a snippet that “more of those pictures can be found on your blog url” will boost your blog’s visibility.
5. A SHORT VIDEO CAN SPEAKS BETTER – If you have the chance, try to do a video relating to your blog’s niche and see how it goes. It doesn’t have to be a lengthy video, just ensure it passes something informative to your followers and it also relates to your blog’s niche.
Don’t forget to mention your blog URL in the video 😉
6. ADD INSTAGRAM WIDGET TO YOUR BLOG – The best way to let your blog’s readers know that you’re on Instagram is adding the widget on your blog or mentioning it in some of your posts.
This will give your readers who are already on Instagram the chance to follow you too on the social media platform.
