Take Beautiful Photos and Enhance Them as Needed with Filters.

A naturally beautiful photo can be even more impactful with a few clicks using a photo editing app like VSCO. Play around with filters, exposure, and saturation until you have an epic double tap-worthy photo.

Post Photos to Your Feed Consistently.

When people start to expect quality content from you, they’re more likely to engage with your posts via liking or commenting. The more engagement you get on your photos, the more likely you are to be found by others who like similar images and want to follow you for your content. Always post at peak times. The Instagram algorithm favors accounts that quickly gain likes and comments.

Make Sure to Utilize the Geotag Function.

Did you take a trip to Italy this summer? Geotag your picture from Naples and make it easier for Instagram users to find your photo and your account. The easier you make it for people to find you, the more likely it is that they will follow you.

Hashtag like It’s Going out of Style.

But #dont #hashtag #every #single #word. Research hashtags that perform well and pertain to the topic of your photo. Make sure to include a good mix of hashtags that already have a lot of tagged content (think 50K-100K) with a medium amount of tagged content (10K-49K) and less popular (but still engaging) hashtags (1K-9K).

Engage with Photos That Have the Same Hashtags as Your Most Recent Posts.

Spread the “like” love around and leave some comments while you’re at it. People are more likely to follow you if you leave them some love and see that you’re both posting similar types of content and therefore have related interests.
