Eight Powerful Tips to Grow Your Instagram Profile

Eight Powerful Tips to Grow Your Instagram Profile

How to Grow your Instagram Profile

Growing your profile on Instagram is very important because Instagram is a well-known photo-sharing social media site. It is simple, fun, and exciting. Best of all, it uses a way of communicating and expressing your thoughts and emotions through photographs which are considered the easiest way of articulating because they express what word words can’t. However, it is not easy to grow your Instagram Profile.

Why does anyone want to grow their Instagram profile? There can be many reasons. Some people love to communicate and want to enhance their social circle; some people want to market their business, etc. Sites such as Grow Your Instagram Profile in Few Days can help build and grow your profile. How in the world do people get millions of followers? Here are some tips to accomplish this objective.

Be responsive.

You should post consistently to engage your users. Post at least once a day to get something into the newsfeed of your followers. Research shows that a profile having a large number of users posts an average of two to three times per day. Follow up with the users. People like it when they feel cared for. If you post on a regular basis it’s more likely that your pictures will appear at the top of your followers’ news feed.

Post exclusive content.
You should provide exclusive content for your followers. Give them a reason to follow you and refer you to their community. Find users on Instagram who might be interested in your business and see what they like. Post content which is most trendy or fashionable. People don’t like common things, so give them something they can’t find elsewhere. For that purpose, the thing that’s necessary is doing enough research about your area of interest. If you are lacking in proper research and have less attractive ideas, then “like” the pictures in your particular community and comment about the thing you find interesting. This will help you get a place in the public.

Use hashtags.

Hashtags are your best companion on Instagram. We recommend you to use five-ten hashtags per post to enhance your Instagram traffic. They help you be more accessible to the users. They put you on the same level as your users. Research different popular hashtags available on Instagram. There are some sites which give you an appropriate collection of hashtags to make your content accessible. Use of hashtags related to your content and page type is essential. It is not helpful to use irrelevant hashtags. For example, if you post a picture of a new model of car and use the hashtags #peace or #respect, it will not fit; instead use the hashtags #speed or #luxury.

Use geotagging.
Usage of geotagging is important to give a more interactive approach to users. When you geotag your picture, the possibility increases that people visiting the same place will see your post and follow you based on similar interests. Therefore, if you visit a famous place or post a picture related to some renowned place, geotag it!

Arrange a contest.
People like nothing more than recognition! Arrange a competition among the users and reward them. For example, you can ask them to repost the most pictures from your profile. Sharing your profile or tagging you in their post will also work. You can have them mention the most number of users in comments. This may drive a large amount of traffic to your page and help you grow your profile. Then you can mention the name of the winner in your posts or send him/her a gift as a token of appreciation. When people get credit for what they have done, they will surely mention you in their community.

Link with other social networks.
Share the link with your Instagram ID on other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype, LinkedIn, etc. It will encourage more users to follow you and get your friends to contact you. The followers on your network will find you with no trouble and follow you.

Approach influential users.
Instagram has 300 million daily users with sky-high user engagement levels. There are many popular celebrities and eminent personalities operating on this network. Large numbers of people follow them and most likely see each and every post they make. All you have to do is contact them and convince them to share your post or mention you in their posts at least once a month. In this way people will follow the words of influence, helping you grow your Instagram profile.

Add texts and attractive filters.

There are numerous filters available on the application. They are for you to use to make you look beautiful and stunning. They help you present an attractive image of yourself for your audience. Adding text will also help you enhance the understanding of followers. Just add some relevant and interesting material regarding your post. Tell followers what it is or why they should have it.

Instagram will continue to gain more and more followers and users. These are your future customers. You have to devise strategies to grab them and hold onto them. This opportunity will grow your customer base enormously, bestowing great benefits upon you. Use this exciting opportunity by implementing these strategies.

The Gentle Art of Saying No For a Less Stressful Life

The Gentle Art of Saying No For a Less Stressful Life

No!

It’s a simple fact that you can never be productive if you take on too many commitments — you simply spread yourself too thin and will not be able to get anything done, at least not well or on time.

But requests for your time are coming in all the time — through phone, email, IM or in person. To stay productive, and minimize stress, you have to learn the Gentle Art of Saying No — an art that many people have problems with.

What’s so hard about saying no? Well, to start with, it can hurt, anger or disappoint the person you’re saying “no” to, and that’s not usually a fun task. Second, if you hope to work with that person in the future, you’ll want to continue to have a good relationship with that person, and saying “no” in the wrong way can jeopardize that.

But it doesn’t have to be difficult or hard on your relationship. Here’s how to master the Gentle Art of Saying No:

Advertising

1. Value Your Time

Know your commitments, and how valuable your precious time is. Then, when someone asks you to dedicate some of your time to a new commitment, you’ll know that you simply cannot do it. And tell them that: “I just can’t right now … my plate is overloaded as it is.”

2. Know Your Priorities

Even if you do have some extra time (which for many of us is rare), is this new commitment really the way you want to spend that time?

For myself, I know that more commitments means less time with my wife and kids, who are more important to me than anything.

3. Practice Saying No

Practice makes perfect. Saying “no” as often as you can is a great way to get better at it and more comfortable with saying the word. And sometimes, repeating the word is the only way to get a message through to extremely persistent people. When they keep insisting, just keep saying no. Eventually, they’ll get the message.

4. Don’t Apologize

A common way to start out is “I’m sorry but …” as people think that it sounds more polite. While politeness is important, apologizing just makes it sound weaker. You need to be firm, and unapologetic about guarding your time.

5. Stop Being Nice

Again, it’s important to be polite, but being nice by saying yes all the time only hurts you. When you make it easy for people to grab your time (or money), they will continue to do it. But if you erect a wall, they will look for easier targets.

Show them that your time is well guarded by being firm and turning down as many requests (that are not on your top priority list) as possible.

6. Say No to Your Boss

Sometimes we feel that we have to say yes to our boss — they’re our boss, right? And if we say “no,” then we look like we can’t handle the work — at least, that’s the common reasoning.

But in fact, it’s the opposite — explain to your boss that by taking on too many commitments, you are weakening your productivity and jeopardizing your existing commitments. If your boss insists that you take on the project, go over your project or task list and ask him/her to re-prioritize, explaining that there’s only so much you can take on at one time.

7. Pre-Empting

It’s often much easier to pre-empt requests than to say “no” to them after the request has been made. If you know that requests are likely to be made, perhaps in a meeting, just say to everyone as soon as you come into the meeting,

“Look guys, just to let you know, my week is booked full with some urgent projects and I won’t be able to take on any new requests.”

8. Get Back to You

Instead of providing an answer then and there, it’s often better to tell the person you’ll give their request some thought and get back to them. This will allow you to give it some consideration, and check your commitments and priorities. Then, if you can’t take on the request, simply tell them:

“After giving this some thought, and checking my commitments, I won’t be able to accommodate the request at this time.”

At least you gave it some consideration.

9. Maybe Later

If this is an option that you’d like to keep open, instead of just shutting the door on the person, it’s often better to just say,

“This sounds like an interesting opportunity, but I just don’t have the time at the moment. Perhaps you could check back with me in [give a time frame].”

Next time, when they check back with you, you might have some free time on your hands.

10. It’s Not You, It’s Me

This classic dating rejection can work in other situations. Don’t be insincere about it, though. Often, the person or project is a good one, but it’s just not right for you, at least not at this time.

Simply say so — you can compliment the idea, the project, the person, the organization … but say that it’s not the right fit, or it’s not what you’re looking for at this time. Only say this if it’s true — people can sense insincerity.
