Number one – Target Specific Niche

Tip number one is to target specific niche so basically what niche is? It is a specific community or group of people related to what you are doing. For example, my niche would be kind of adventure travels, photography, in cap Town South Africa. So what I mean by saying is to target a specific niche, is to use hashtag related to that niche. So obviously that takes some research first so my recommendation would be to go on to the top influences profile in your niche. And see the hashtag that they are using. I recommend

I recommend using 10 to 20 hashtags that related to your niche. Go and each hashtag and check how many likes the top rated person are getting. If they are in your range then great, use this hashtags. If they are getting way more likes than your post getting at the moment, I don’t recommend use that hashtags. This is because if you use that hashtags and there a lot of other peoples using this hashtag, as soon you use this hashtag your photo will get seen by wide range of people but this means also gets lots down that feed and lots quicker, and going be discover  for as long as could be with a smaller hashtags. So start a smaller hashtag as you begin to grow reputation you see your post start to rank on that hashtags. Once you consistently rank on those hashtags for a while, you can upgrade your hashtags to the bigger hashtags and treat your ranking on that hashtags. So, for example, some of the hashtags I am using at the moment are things like a city of Cap Town, Africa, Instagram cape town thing like that, and I am ranking for each of my picture on the top post. So this means my photos get discovered by a wide range of people every single day. But now let say I use hashtags like livefolk some thing for life folk. I would not be featured on the top rank post of that hashtag.

My photo will be seen by a much wider range of audiences initially, but it would die a lot quicker and get lost that feed. So want to build a reputation high enough to reach the same amount of likes as the live folk’s hashtags then start using that hashtags to rank in that hashtags category.  So, I would highly recommend targeting smaller feature at the beginning of your Instagram photography career along this used auto like the instagram app to gain more followers and likes.
