 Aside pinterest, the Instagram mobile application is another major social networking application
that is rapidly gaining popularity and awareness; currently averaging 80 million worldwide users.
Not a bad start owing that is mainly a mobile only service.




For you to build a reasonable numbers of fans in Instagram, you will have to follow some tested
and proven strategies although it is unfortunate to say this; the best course of action is usually not
an easy one!




Snap and Upload captivating photos (Simple!)



At first, your basic concern ought to be the creation of appealing pictures. The basis for this is that
people have the propensity of following accounts that only display the most appealing and striking
snap shots. This makes sense and is frequently lost on marketers who are looking to crack a new
social field. Customers dont care if you are Nike or Adidas or even Facebook or their favorite
football group their main aim of being on instagram is to surf images and photographs that catches
their fancy.




For this purpose, you need to come up with a clever strategy every time you are out shooting new
photos.




As a rule of thumb, you should endeavor to avoid taking irrelevant or trite pictures, which are
commonly seen by people every day. In the word of Nick Bilton who works for the New York
Times, (his Instagram account has more than fifty thousand followers) people are more likely to
admire you for quality over quantity - yes you may well take a fancy picture of your Starbucks cup
but if I dont know who you are and your photo is generic, I wont be monitoring you. At instagram,
think quality rules!




Publishing superb and average photos at the same time may not be a very good thing to do
because the mediocre photos can act as a turn off to your visitors - a user on Instagram is 40%
more liable to un-follow you than on twitter as there is less social engagement.




For those that have huge collection of attractive photos on their account, its advisable for not them
not to post all at once but should post them at regular intervals. By so doing, it will keep the
interest of your followers abreast and induce them to keep coming back for more interesting
photographs. It is like telling a story to your child. You probably wont spill the whole tale at the
introduction, rather you will reveal bit by bit to retain his/her interest and attention.




Reciprocate gestures by also following other users


It is a common practice even with other social networking sites like twitter; people are more
generally going to also follow those that follow them. So if you require users of the Instagram app
to follow you, you must also do same by following them. Please note! Dont follow others just for
the mere sake of following, else just like twitter - you will end up with followers who are not into
you. For your information, one engaged follower is worth a thousand none.




Like and post comments on nice images


The common currency of Instagram is the like. One sure way of gaining followers is by simply
liking others pictures. Just by liking their images, your photos will also eventually get noticed and
also receive comment/likes from them




Make use of popular Hashtags


Hashtags in a nut shell is the concept that let the users of Instagram to group a number of photos
together. One sure way of making certain that your photographs receive lots of publicity is by
tagging them. For example, if you possess a sunset picture, you can tag it with a popular #sunset
tag so that it will be available with other photos that have the same tag (twitter anyone?). The
theory is that people will search in areas that interest them #cat #icecream #olympics.
