Is your Instagram really working for you? We all know how important a tool such a social media is to help create a brand and attract clients who may want to hire you. If you're finding that your account is struggling to grow then you might be making some of these many mistakes.
The guys over at The Futur are back once again with their most in-depth video so far helping creative people master the social media platform Instagram. This week Chris Do, who is an Emmy award-winning designer and founder of brand strategy design consultancy Blind, Inc., reviews and provides in-depth analysis of several Instagram users to highlight what each of them is doing right and wrong with their accounts.
Even though the video features mostly graphic designers for the critique, these tips are more than transferable to all imaginable areas of the creative world including photography. Do has some great advice regarding how to pick the right hashtags, how to listen to your audience to grow your account, and the best ways to communicate what you want as a creative so you get hired for the jobs you want. It's fascinating to see how many of us are making the same mistakes on Instagram and how a few adjustments could really help you to grow on the social network. The video is a long one at almost two hours but it's most definitely worth it if you're serious about growing your account.
