Noticed on Social Media??

April 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Getting noticed in social media is similar to finding your way around a maze that keeps changing depending upon which service that you are using and who the audience you want to attract. It can be very time consuming and at times frustrating to know what to post to which service and when to post it. A couple of things that can help are:

Posting at about the same time every week. If your audience knows that you post on a certain day or time, they are more likely to look for you. There are certainly apps that allow you to do this a little easier such as Hootsuite and Crowdbooster that may allow you to be a little more efficient.

Hashtags are VERY popular on Instagram. Generally, the more hashtags that you use, the greater the chance that you will be discovered and develop a greater number of fans. Some of the most popular #Hashtags are:

#love, #instagood, #me, #tbt, #cute, #follow, #followme, #photooftheday, #happy, #tagforlikes, #beautiful, #self, #girl, #picoftheday, #like4like, #smile, #friends, #fun, #like, #fashion, #summer, #instadaily, #igers, #instalike, #food, #swag, #amazing, #tflers, #follow4follow, #bestoftheday, #likeforlike, #instamood, #style, #wcw, #family, #f4f, #nofilter,  #lol, #life, #pretty, #repost, #hair, #my, #sun, #webstagram, #iphoneonly, #art, #tweegram, #cool, #followback, #instafollow, #instasize, #bored, #instacool, #funny, #mcm, #instago, #instasize, #vscocam, #girls, #all_shots, #party, #music, #eyes, #nature, #beauty, #night, #fitness, #beach, #look, #nice, #sky, #christmas, #baby

 Try to develop a consistent style of brand. This can be difficult, but asking yourself questions such as what type of things do I do really well            may help. A Portrait photographer should most often post images of people; a fashion model may want to post images of herself in up to               date or elaborate clothing. If people know what to expect, they are more likely to look for you. That does not mean that one can not post               other interesting topics, but the majority of the posts should be of a similar style.

Try to avoid noise. If the topic has been discussed 100 times and you do not have an amazingly new spin, people may brush directly past your post. Have you have PERSONAL knowledge that is unique that no one else has shared?  This of course does not mean that you can not Re-Post a topic from an EXPERT and add your unique insight to it. In fact, this may work very well. If a well known photographer describes a technique, and you use it with great results- by all means tag the expert and share your results.

Adding personal stories may or may not help, depending how long that you have been posting and how large your group of followers may be. Someone just starting out, may not want to share what they ate for breakfast in the morning :)   In any case, everyone should be careful about sharing too much. Unfortunately, not everyone on the internet always has your best interest in their heart.

Here are links that may help with social media sites such as facebook or twitter. Instagram supposedly has an internal management mechanism for things like scheduling posts, however it does not seem to work consistently for everyone who has tried to use it.
