build a brand on Instagram tips

I have a huge fan girl crush on Instagram. It’s much easier to skim through than Facebook and I love beautiful imagery. There are so many big brands that have established themselves on Instagram, but it’s also an amazing tool for bloggers.

Here are 5 ways bloggers can build their brand on Instagram:

Keep It Real

Show your readers what really happens behind the scenes of your blog. Social media all too often can give the impression that we’re just a bunch of got it together people who are selfie ready 24/7. Show your messy house, your workspace…show the “real” you! I love this post from fellow Nashville blogger @JessicaNTurner and so did her followers.

Toot Your Own Horn

Use your Instagram feed to promote your latest blog content. Here I used the same graphic as used to illustrate my post about 2015 blog conferences. Because you can’t hyperlink within the graphic text that accompanies your image, it’s a smart idea to update your main url in your bio to reflect your latest post.
