If you’re like most people in 2018, you’re over here scratching your head about how to get your brand ahead on Instagram. You’ve tirelessly read up on all the blogs about the latest Instagram Tips, listened carefully to all of the social media experts and consulted with all of your friends.
Well… lucky for you we’ve been saving up all of Eva Chen‘s (the Director of Fashion Partnerships at Instagram) tips & takeaways she’s been sharing over the past couple months. Read on below and let us know in the comments what stood out most to you.
Go LIVE on Instagram because it will get you pushed to the front of everyone’s feed.
Forget about being creative with your grid. Less than 1% if views come from profile views.
Use different story functions to retain viewers (Boomerang, Rewind, Still, Video, etc).
Post frequently and consistently.
Reply to comments.
Use mobile photos- not always perfectly edited images.
Use all of Instagram’s features- stories, feed, live and location tags.
