Let’s talk about how to grow your instagram feed organically.

First off, and most importantly, I recommend to use Instagram as the visual platform that it’s designed to be.

Of course, what I’m talking about is using high-quality visuals and posting them as your posts. There are so many different ways to do this.

For the actual imagery, you can either create your own content, or you can opt to use stock photos that go hand in hand with your branding.

Always keep in mind that I only recommend using stock mixed in alongside your own content. If you use all stock and none that’s your own images people will begin to wonder if you’re a real person!

Basically – think about your individual posts. Are they high-quality images and graphics? Could you improve on this?

For the design/theme/overall grid, you should have some kind of posting strategy that creates a pattern or overall theme (so that your feed as a whole looks visually pleasing). I’ll go into posting strategies in more detail in another blog post, but for now, let’s just get you thinking about this.

Now think about how your whole grid looks when someone visits your profile for the first time – does it look inviting? Do the images and colours work well together? If you have a website and brand, are the colours in your Instagram similar to what people will see on your website?

Next week, I’m going to be sharing PART 2 of my tips + there will be an awesome freebie included at the end of it.
