How to Get More Followers on Instagram-Learn from a Pro – Kirsten Alana
Wondering how to grow your Instagram following? Wish you knew how to take a gorgeous photo that really excites your audience?
I recently had the good fortune to review a gorgeous property in Mauritius with a group of travel writers, bloggers and photographers. Among them was Kirsten Alana, her site is Aviators and a Camera. I followed her around like a wanna be on Nicole Richie’s heels. When she took a shot, I tried from the same angle. She taught me things I didn’t even know my camera could do. In short, she really upped my game in terms of images and Instagram. She has over 11,000 followers, she’s clearly doing something right. I asked her to give some insight on her best practices and to share some of her favorite photographs.
Why do you love Instagram?
How long have you been on Instagram and how did you grow your massive following?
- 1) I always reply to comments on my photographs.
- 2) I use hashtags, but not too many, and I don’t put them in the caption of a photo. I save them for a comment just after that.
- 3) I don’t post too many selfies but I do occasionally include myself in photographs because I think that those who follow me want to connect with a person but also care more about where I am traveling. It’s about balance.
What do you think makes the perfect travel photo?
