Maximising My Instagram Success

Maximising My Instagram Success - student project

Hello everyone!

I have done a number of different Skillshare classes based on Instagram success however I am still struggling to gain a decent following. I am finding lately that whatever followers I gain I tend to lose so I am always at roughly the same number of followers. I have done everything suggested in this course, however, I believe I should pay more attention to one, perhaps two, mistakes in particular. 

#5 - Post photos AND videos

I have posted a few short videos on my Instgram page (maybe 4 in total) but I think it would be a good idea, like Diego suggested, to upload more videos regularly. I use Instagram to promote my artwork and have thought about including video footage of me working on an art piece to demonstrate how I work. I love watching these types of videos on Youtube and Facebook and thought it would be really fun to start making them myself.

#7 - Include variety in my posts

I believe there is some variety to my Instagram page but there could also be more. I want to post more videos but I would also like to start displaying my artwork better. Normally I just take a picture of my artwork on my desk that I work on, but I thought I could start displaying my work using different backgrounds and props to make my Instagram posts a bit more interesting.

What do you think?

I'd love for you all to check out my Instagram page and tell me what you think. Perhaps you can see something I can't. I'd love to hear any suggestions you have.
