Five Tricks to Grow Your Instagram

Five Tricks to Grow Your Instagram

Today, I wanted to do something a little different. Since it is #TipTuesday, I’ll be sharing some tricks that have helped me manage and grow my Instagram. As a newbie blogger, I’ve learned quite a few tricks that I thought I’d share with fellow newbie bloggers.

Find Your Tribe

Having a group of bloggers with similar goals has made all the difference for me. While, the Instagram community can be intimidating, having a support system makes it a lot easier.

How do you find your tribe? Decide what type of support you need for your account. If you want comments, find a comments and engagement pod. If you only want likes, then find a likes only pod.

How do you find a pod to join? There are several Facebook groups for Bloggers where openings on pods are announced. But you could also start one yourself, by inviting other blogger friends you may already follow on Instagram.

Learn to Love Hashtags

Hashtags are your best bet for being discovered on social media, particularly on Instagram. Did you know that you can use up to 30 hashtags? Yes, 30! While you don’t want to look spammy, you should totally use every single one. Why? Because it’s an opportunity for other users to find you.

How do you avoid looking spammy? Simply add your hashtags to the comments field instead of the caption field.

Give love, Get love

A trick to growing your account is to engage. While pods will help with this, you also need to engage with people who comment on your posts. But don’t stop there, go out and search for accounts that align with yours and comment on and like their posts as well.

Keep it real

While it can be tempting to do everything every other blogger is doing. Don’t! It’s ok to be inspired by the accounts of top bloggers but try to remain original. Your audience and followers have decided to follow YOU for a reason. 😉

Schedule to Stay Sane

In order to remain sane, I highly suggest that you have some sort of schedule for Instagram. You can even use a tool to help you manage your posts and preview what your feed will look like. I use the free version of Later and it has helped me a lot.*

I hope you have found this post helpful. If you did, make sure to share and pin it so that others can find it too.

If you have questions, leave me a comment below. 😉

Hola, Welcome!

Hola, my name is Nailil! I am a mom to two beautiful girls and a tiny Chihuahua. I am married to a US ARMY Veteran (who I immensely admire for his bravery and service). I am also a tea fanatic, foodie, occasional traveler, Christian music listener, cook, and DIYer. I was born in Panama thus fluent in Spanish, partially raised in Germany (but didn’t pick up the language while there) and have lived in the US for years.

I started this blog with a bit of anxiety and doubt but lots of faith. While, reminding myself that God will lead the way, and adopting Mark 11:24 as my motivation to pursue this dream.

Wishing to share life, food, travel, DIYs, fashion and more. My hope is that you will like what I share, come back frequently and that along the way I am able to connect with so many people; that our interactions, though virtual, become more of a friendship.

What’s behind the name? I have known that I wanted to work online since forever. And this year, that I turned 29, I decided to go for it. That’s why I chose Thirty Minus One, I feel that it’s meaningful!

I won’t rant on, but I hope that you will come back and check out my future posts, leave comments, follow me on Instagram and Pinterest.

Saludos,
Thirty Minus One
