How Do You Get More Visibility for Your Instagram Photos and Short Videos?
- Post often – The more often you post on Instagram, the more visible you`ll be.
- Use Hashtags – Your followers aren’t the only ones who will see your Instagram posts. Use Hashtags that others are using so that those who are not yet following you can see your work when your posts pop up in their searches.
- Participate in the Weekend Hashtag Project
A great way to increase recognition is to take part in Instagram’s weekly Weekend Hashtag Project. Every Friday, Instagram reveals that weekend’s theme and hashtag. (Yes, the hashtag changes every week.) Shoot your images or short videos of that weekend’s theme then post them on your Instagram account with your story, comments and hashtags. Don’t forget to include that week`s official hashtag. Instagram features the favorites every Monday morning.
Weekend Hashtag Project has two rules to follow: post only what you take, and use photos and short videos of what you took that same weekend.
- There are other accounts that feature their own projects that you could be featured on. Keep an eye out for them too. (i.e. @cntraveler)
Don’t forget to check out the Instagram Blog or @Instagram’s own account every Friday for that weekend’s theme and hashtag.
Good luck with your posts! May you be showcased.
