Instagram: 10 Tips for New Instagram Users Pt. 1 

  Part 1

Instagram is one of the top social media sites in the world. It has more than a billion accounts, and it continually welcomes new users. But for someone that didn’t use Instagram until today, this platform may seem a bit confusing. However, you don’t have to worry. We are here to guide you through the process and provide you with all the input you need to use the platform at its full potential. Here you have some of the best Instagram management and usage tips that you want to consider, and also help your Instagram followers grow.

1. Edit your photos with Instagram

What a lot of people don’t know is that Instagram has a great set of editing features that you can use. You have to tap the Edit button that appears at the bottom of the screen. The best part here is that you have lots of different options. You can change the brightness, warmth, and contrast; you can add a shift or blur feature if you want. Or you can make the image feel very menacing and be challenging to look at. The idea is to play around with all features and see how you like them the most. It’s exciting and distinct, so you might as well want to check that out.

Ideally, you want to create your style and edit all images that way. Why should you do that? Because it makes you distinct and unique on the platform. Plus, people will know a lot easier that this is one of your images. So don’t just copy others and their style. Create your style to showcase your true prowess and bring in the best value for your viewers.

2. Use Hashtags

Hashtags offers you a way to showcase the content in your image, express yourself, promote your image and grow your Instagram Followers too. Hashtags can be tapped on, and people can easily see all photos with that hashtag. If you want to get more viewers and likes, the best thing you can do is to add hashtags to your videos and images. One thing to note here though, you do want to use hashtags that make sense for the content you post. Just using popular hashtags for the sake of it will make people ignore you. Which means you do have to figure out what hashtags are right for you, which aren’t and how you can adapt the current hashtags to suit your needs!

3. Manage Your Privacy Settings

Instagram allows you to choose who sees your posts if they are private or not. You can also make the account private if you want to. If you do that, then everyone that wants to follow you will have to receive an approval. You can also turn off comments on posts, or you can hide comments that include offensive content. The idea is that you are always in control and you do have all the privacy settings needed to help you get the results you want.

4. Use live videos

One of the best features on Instagram is that you can broadcast yourself live to other people. You can share your ideas and connect with people from afar in no time. Plus, you will not have a problem creating a set of videos if you want to, which is exciting.

Using live video does make a lot of sense, and it offers you a great sense of accomplishment. It’s also just an exciting and fun experience for you to enjoy with your close friends too. And the fact that your friends can post comments and actively interact with you live makes this a no-brainer to use.

5. Create Stories

The Stories feature allows you to post regular photos and videos that are connected to one another. It’s a nice little way to communicate with people and also express yourself. The Stories feature included in every Instagram guide as one of the best ways to showcase your emotions to your audience. If you always wanted to come up with a good Instagram strategy that helps connect your ideas with the audience, this might be it.

Although do keep in mind that the stories are deleted in 24 hours. So while you can create multiple stories, they won’t be held on this site forever. On the other hand, you can download the videos and post them on other platforms if you want to. That being said, it’s a good idea to not place too much effort into these, as they aren’t going to last forever, which means you might as well focus on the things that do help you boost your Instagram strategy!
