Depending on the work to hand, numerous methods are available for the social media activist to utilize. To be specific, that activist will have selected one platform to carry out his work. Today, a majority of activists and followers on Instagram are connecting quite successfully. That is thanks to the functional and user-friendly capabilities of the platform-installed Instagram tools. By way of those tools, here are just four methods Instagram activists are using to draw in more followers.
A majority of Instagram activists and their followers, having settled into the structure of the Instagram platform, will be comfortably focusing on their local areas. Aside of the obvious, there can be any number of motivations for wishing to stay at home if you will. Secondly, bear in mind that Instagram has given you a platform to take ownership of. It is over to you to make that ‘call to action’ to your future clients.
Thirdly, efficient and effective use of your dedicated hashtag is vital in enabling you to pull more active Instagram users towards your profile and ensnare them as your captive followers. Think of two beautiful metaphors while you are strategizing how your hashtag should look and how you should word it in relation to your alternate active social media platforms, your main business website and even your email account.
The metaphor of the sunflower. By the way, these metaphors resonate with you and your motivations if you are a lover of nature. If not, then it is certain that you will be imaginative enough in endeavouring to find hashtag words that stand out. Of course, you will need to be smart here, and to that, think of this metaphor. Think of what it was like when you were a child. One of your favourite bonding rituals would have been taking a piggyback ride on your father or big brother’s back.
As to why this intimate ritual is referred to as ‘piggy-backing’ would have to be the subject of another article. Anyhow, the metaphor of the sunflower. Both its colours and scented pollen are extremely irresistible to the hardworking bees out there. While scavenging at the bottom of the magnificent flower, its pollen collects on the bees’ legs and it gets carried out into the wind where further germination becomes possible.
How apt is that when thinking about how you draw the Instagram viewers onto your platform? Perhaps the metaphor of the spider’s web is a tad more aggressive. This may be attractive for you if you are that ambitious and hell-bent in capturing as many followers as possible. Your platform, taking advantage of as many of the Instagram tools as possible, needs to be strong enough as a web, just like the spider’s web, to capture your market and retain it.
And like the sunflower’s pollen, and the subsequent bees’ honey, you need to remain active in producing regular content that keeps them enthralled and enraptured.
