Get Attention For Your Band With Instagram
Instagram has become increasingly popular over the past few years. If you are in a band, you’d be missing a great opportunity if you chose not to set up an account. The following tips will help you get more attention for your band through Instagram.
Captions can help viewers figure out what is happening in your picture. You don’t have to worry that much about being clever or writing a full paragraph. You simply have to jot down something about your picture that helps others to understand it a little more. It’s fine if you are funny in your text, but make sure that people understand the humor and it is not some inside joke. Basically, you want to write something that is interesting and informative.
If you have an Instagram account, you need to use hashtags. Hashtags are a short and simple way of letting others know what is going on in your picture. You can put a series of words together (no spaces) that describe the picture or make a statement about what is happening. When you use a hashtag, you want people to understand what your words mean even if they were not looking at your picture.
That said, you need to make sure that you don’t have too many hashtags going on. They all need to make sense for your picture and/or your band. If you put up a bunch of unrelated hashtags, you are likely going to turn people off. Try and be a little funny or witty with your words, but ultimately, as long as the hashtag has to do with your band or your picture, you are fine.
Finally, keep in mind that recurring hashtags are currently a huge trend. That could end one day, but for now, you need to get in on the action. For example, “#tbt” means “throwback Thursday.” Pick the day of the week that you want to focus on, and make sure you put up a picture on that day with the corresponding hashtag. Your followers will start to look forward to your posts and will search for your images at least once a week.
Another good way to get followers is to make posts look popular by buying Instagram likes for your account or a specific pic. It will have a positive psychological impact on people and is very beneficial.
Mix It Up
Don’t put up the same type of pictures all the time. Get creative and be unique! You don’t just have to put up images of the band posing. You can do some action shots of you in concert or post a picture of the group brainstorming. You’ll keep interest going if you mix it up.
The images that you put up on your account should be clear and bright. Dark images that are hard to decipher won’t get you very far. Your followers probably will not take the time to figure out what is happening in them. Not only that, but dark pictures aren’t very uplifting. Make sure you also take advantage of some of Instagram’s filters!
