You feel yourself drowning in this highly congested market as you compete for double taps and features on the discovery page. You need to get smarter, feistier...but how? Here's how to stand out on Instagram.
Post to your story. Upload selfies all the time with clickable features, like a hashtag and or location. Viewers may not go out of their way to visit your profile, but seeing your face constantly will make them intrigued to look you up. Contribute to your story a few times throughout the day.
Play with your audience. There are a lot of engagement features that you can add to your story, such as a poll. You can also confide in your audience through your captions. Sometimes you need to appear tangible to your followers, but other times you must claim your thrown. Alexis Ren does an amazing job of doing both. Check out some of her posts below.
Take advantage of the comments section. Spend some time commenting on your friends and celebrities' posts, so people stumble upon your username again and again. However, the best way to earn a profile view is to leave an unusual or humorous comment. Nobody cares if you're "first," you gotta be THE BEST.
Be careful of articles that were posted in 2017 since they aren't up to date with photo trends or the Instagram algorithm. I never had much luck with an Instagram Pod except a confident boost, so handle those with caution.
