Musings: 350 Followers + Insta Meet

Hello πŸ·πŸŒΈπŸ’–

Hope everyone is having a great Fri-YAY πŸ™Œ

I am super excited πŸ˜ƒ The preppy_pink_piglet blog, has crossedΒ 350+ followersΒ (and is heading towards the 400+ milestone…fingers crossed 🀞)

As I continue with my blogging adventures, I am also looking to grow engagement on other social media platforms – starting with Instagram. And this post is meant to serve as a virtual “Insta Meet” πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

TheΒ rules are as easy as 1,2,3 –

  1. Follow my IG accountΒ preppy_pink_pigletΒ and I will follow right back πŸ‘
  2. Share the link to your IG account in the comments section (Hope we will each find atleast a few IG accounts that we like and want to follow πŸ™‚)
  3. Share one tip/ trick that has worked for you to increase number of followers and improve engagement on IG 😎

Here are five quick tips that I wanted to share to improve IG engagement –

  • Experiment with pictures and captions Capture attention with a beautiful picture and tie it into some brilliant storytelling. Focus on quality and keep it interesting for your followers. Get creative with angles and editing style. Include yourself in the photos as people find it relatable which makes them engage more.
  • Use IG hashtags strategically –Β The right hashtag or combination of hashtags can help you reach large and targeted audiences. Keep hashtags relevant to interact with the right people.
  • Optimize your profile pic and bio –Β Get your audience to notice your feed by having both match with the aesthetic of your feed. Share the link to your blog or to your latest blog post on your bio.
  • Keep a consistent schedule and post at the right times – Do the research and schedule posts for when your audience is most active on Instagram. Timing is everything.
  • Just get active on IG and IG stories –Β If you want to boost your engagement, then you have to go after it. Give the same engagement that you’re looking to get. Leaving thoughtful comments allows you to meet new people, form meaningful connections and make the whole journey a lot more fun.

As always, a huge thank you to each one of you!Β Your blog posts inspire me and I appreciate the continued love and encouragement πŸ’

Hope I get to meet all of you on Instagram real soon πŸ€—πŸ’–

    Congratulations! πŸŽ‰
    My IG is instagram.com/itssamanthajayne
    I don’t really have any tips apart from what you already mentioned πŸ™ˆ A weird thing did happen to me yesterday, though: my impressions and reach on IG never go above a few hundred, but yesterday I posted a photo of a dress I fell in love with in M&S, and I don’t know how, but that one post got just under 2000! I didn’t do anything different, so it’s a mystery to me. Today’s post is back in my normal figures πŸ˜‚

        Aw, thank you so much! πŸ’•
        It wasn’t the likes, it was impressions and reach (when you click on the stats button). I only ever get a two or three hundred at most, and yet that one pic shot up to nearly 2000, and I can’t work out what I did so I can get the stats up on all my other ones πŸ˜‚ x
