How many times have you thought to yourself “life would be so much easier if I could be Instagram famous”. Me? All of the time. I come up with all kinds of ideas like getting a pug and making it famous, instantly becoming a fitness model, or actually becoming interested in makeup and fashion. I’m no fashionista, makeup aficionado, or workout guru. None of these make sense for who I am. Except maybe the pug. Who doesn’t want a pug?
According to wikihow’s “How to Become Instagram Famous”, there are four ways: a catchy Instagram name, and artful profile photo, a consistent theme, and to find a unique niche. Inc.com has an article called “11 Top Hacks to Finding Fame on Instagram” listing advice on hashtag use, marketing, and photo quality. @gettinggrowth in their article “How to Become Famous on Instagram: The Only Guide You Need in 2019” lists 22 ways with a list of what not to do at the end of the article.
So, what ACTUALLY works? How could we possibly implement all of the advice we can find online? Here’s my advice: keep your day job. Don’t think you’re going to be Instragram famous overnight. You need to build it over time, like you would a new habit. Start by going through your day and thinking about what you’d like to share. What do you enjoy? Perhaps you love flowers or have great cleaning tips. It doesn’t have to be exotic or glamorous. There will always be someone out there who will relate to you.
Start by finding your community of flower lovers or cleaning gurus. Begin posting more often, commenting more often, and building relationships. You may never get a million followers, or you may post something that goes inexplicably viral overnight. I can’t guarantee that you’ll be famous, but I can guarantee that you might have fun.
Think about what kind of community you’d like to be part of. Maybe it really is flowers that you’re into. Once you figure it out, drop a comment below. Why not build our own community? A community of people who wished they were Instagram famous. 😉
