THIS is How to Be Famous on Instagram

By Tiara Ogabang

Let's admit it: you want to be an Instagram influencer!

You like the fact that all of your friends have become Facebook “friends.” Your significant other looks at your profile to see what you’ve been up to. You want to get recognized for your awesome photos and take back your photo story to the place where it belongs – the photo timeline.

So, how do you do it?

The easy way, of course. You just need to produce a bunch of photos that everyone else will go crazy for!

Of course, your main mission is to have the best photos and the most followers – and for that, you need the right influencer strategy.

First of all, you need a good camera and a good story. Think about what it is about the photo story that makes you stand out from the rest.

Take great photos


If you want to make your photos more share-worthy than just looking like the “perfect life,” then you’re going to need to do a little extra work.

Come up with some great ideas for photographing your family and other household activities, like cooking, baking, cleaning, or playing with toys.

A simple camera like a smartphone will help you capture that one perfect picture of your family or friends.

Do not, under any circumstances, ever point your camera down at your food while eating or cooking, or you will likely be taking a photo of your teeth! Be sure to shoot your friend or family member in the eyes, as well as both sides of the face, as the look on their face can make all the difference in the world.

Learn from the pros

It might be the location, the camera, the story, or something else.

Figure out what is it and just copy it.

When you’re shooting video with an Instagram influencer, you should just follow his/her lead and do what he/she does. They probably have all the tricks that you need to get where you want to be.

You also need to take videos that your friends will want to see. Whether you want to sell something, promote your business, start a blog, or promote your lifestyle, all of that will go better if you’re recognizable by the people you care about. How do you do it?

Be original and unique

People like to see people who are different from the rest. Even if you do something that seems like the same thing everyone else does, it’s very likely that it’ll have a better effect on your audience than something similar.

Stand out in the audience

While there are some things that we all like to see, there’s always more that we’re missing. Most people find it difficult to be genuinely interested in the photos of people they don’t know. But they will much more likely be interested in the photos of people that they do know. Just put yourself in their shoes and try to capture that moment the way that they will.

Don’t take it too seriously

People like to see funny photos of their friends. They like to see people having fun and taking advantage of the amazing experiences of life. Be sure to find that balance. Don’t go crazy with it, though.

When you’re taking photos and thinking about them, that’s the time that you need to be most professional.

Don’t get lost in the more technical parts of it. Just think about what your followers want to see, what will be effective, and how your photos will make people take a closer look at you and your brand.

Just be yourself

That’s what you need to do to get recognized and to make people care about your content.

Be you and just be true to yourself. When people are not “in it with you”, they’re less likely to be interested in what you have to say.

Follow the main influencers When you start shooting and editing your photos, look for people who are most popular, who seem to do it “right” and who seem to have a lot of people follow them.

Every influencer has his or her own niche and following them will help you to become more relevant. When you follow them, they will then notice that you’re following them, which will then turn into you following them.

Final thoughts

You just need to be yourself and take photos that are really good. Just be yourself and you’ll be golden. When people start to recognize you, they will start to follow you. This will result in all sorts of positive feedback, of course, and you can take this further by building a professional and relevant website, a social media page, and an email list.
