Are you on Instagram?

It's been a while since I added anything to my blog, but I have recently discovered Instagram.  As a visual person, I just love adding new images and sharing my recent work there with people.  Recently I have also expanded my "Personal Branding business", which brings me to this post.  Today I am not going to talk about photography per se, but rather give you, my business and networking friends, some incredible links and advice on building your online Instagram presence.

Some super useful apps that I have found that help with visually presenting yourself on Instagram are:

InstaQuote (Available in your app store)

PicFrame (Available in your app store)

PicPlayPost (Available in your app store)

You can follow my Instagram here to fill your feed with cute babies and gorgeous women.

Tips for successful Instagram Marketing:

1) Keep your brand in mind - what are your colours, do you have specific colours? 

2) Be consistent - not just in posting, but in your overall look and feel with your images

3) What is your "message"? What emotion are you trying to evoke with your visual marketing?

4) Create a "pattern".  (A great "business" to follow for inspiration is @Designaglow, they are a great example of colour branding, and how to take photos of everyday objects to capture your business for marketing.)

5) When using images from external sources, try to credit the original source, this not only brings them to your posts but their followers as well! So it is win-win for everyone! 

Here's to a successful Instagram to help your business! Thanks for reading! I would love to see your Instagram and follow you in return, so post your Instagram URL in the comments below!

Amazing tips Therena, some of the tools that you have mentioned I have been using for a while and all of them helped me a lot in my online presence. I would love also to make a suggestion with a service that I have personally used for my personal Instagram and the work one. This tool is what most of new bloggers needs to check.
