Instagram was created as a visual social media platform exclusively for sharing photos and videos, but it has evolved into much more over the past eight years.

Because of its visual nature, this social media channel allows you to reach out to a dynamic audience, but how do you do that? 

These are tried and true techniques to help you grow your Instagram account and engage with more people regardless of your purpose.

1. Regular Posts – Sharing regular posts is vital to growing your profile. Avoid posting too many images in a day, but one to three is acceptable and will be efficient enough to drive growth.

2. Consistent Content – People following your account do so because they want to see more of your images and/or videos. For instance, if you share images of dogs and cats, your audience wants to see a consistent, but not annoying flow of your images every day.

3. Share-Worthy Images – Pay attention to which images get shared most often. When you see tags like “@instagramuser, you’ve gotta see this picture”, your images are getting seen by potential followers.

4. Engage & Follow – Look for people who are interested in your niche by looking at your competition. See who is following them, follow them and get followers back. Look for active users who engage, respond, and add value. Your interaction must also add value.

Distracted from distraction by distraction”-T.S. Eliot

The dawn of the 21st century saw mankind being irrevocably shaken up by the web, technology’s most dazzling achievement, the network of networks that has become a household name and changed our online lives forever.

However, the Internet’s continuous advancement with leaps of epic proportions makes it so, that the system does at times become perplexed in jargon, and occasionally confuses the untrained computer user. Together with a "navigator", you need to keep your mindset, knowledge and computer skills constantly updated to be able to take fool advantage of this remarkable tool.

Step 1- Select your weapon(s)

It all starts with the right hardware. You can get easy access to the net through four devices, namely a desktop computer, a portable computer (usually called a laptop or notebook), a mobile computer (tablet), and a smart mobile phone. It is essential that the specifications and properties of your machines cover your current needs, while it is good to have some potential for upgrading. Discuss this with your trusted dealer, and don’t pay money for functions you don’t need.  Normally $1,000 should be more than enough for the whole package.
