Getting The Most Out Of Instagram

Instagram is a great marketing tool for bands.  Bandzoogle recently published 25 ways of getting more fans on Instagram.  Here are the takeaway tips that I think are the most essential:

  • Use hashtags to identify and categorise your images.  Use descriptive hashtags that people might search for.  Here’s the images for the hashtag ‘crowdshot’.

  • Use a short, snappy caption with each image.
  • Post images which fit in with trending or time specicic hashtags i.e. #tbt (Throwback Thursday).
  • Vary the type of images you post: backstage, rehearsing, chilling, on the road, in the studio.
  • Add a link to your website in your Instagram profile.
  • Use the video feature, you’ve got 15 seconds, wow your fans with some cool moves.
  • Proactively search for fans. Search for terms that fit your music (i.e. folk, heavymetal). Follow people with the same interests as you.
  • Comment on other people’s images.
  • As with all social networks post consistently to build an audience.
