2014 Instragram Review : A Year of 58,000+ Likes
It is time to take inventory and today it is the 2014 Instagram review.
This morning I received the following message on my Instagram account:
“One of my favourites, ever. Thank you for sharing”.
I was totally delighted by this response. I have been doing relatively well on my account but for some reason this particular feedback totally lifted my spirits. “Favourites EVER”!! Yes!
So what does doing well mean?
Although I had opened my account in 2011, I did not start really using it until last year. Driven by being away from home and recognizing I needed to make better use of this photo-sharing platform, it became one of my primary focus as it relates to social networks in 2014.
So, like many of us right now, I am taking inventory as we begin 2015.
Here is my 2014 Instagram review:
|Monthly Average Likes per photo||3||100|
Not too shabby. However, it was the feedback this morning that validated I was going in the right direction. It is called old fashion “customer delight” and “creating ambassadors for your brand”. These are two goals we should always thrive for.
So what did I do? As I conducted my 2014 Instagram review, I recognized there are 4 key learning tips from 2014 that I would like to share.
Whatever you put out there, please make it good.
Do not stay in your account. Take the time to explore others and engage with them. I have found that the more I engaged, the more people were inclined to engage with me. I explore for a number of reasons, they include 1) inspiration 2) enjoyment and 3) benchmarking. Any photo that I appreciate, I do not hesitate to hit the like button and I may go further to see/like more of the author’s content. This simple action does wonders to visibility. Try it.
That’s it! This year I intend to further increase my presence and interaction on the site. Needless to say, I will be blogging about it! In the interim join me on instagram at @shirleywms
Now it is your turn.
What has been your experience on Instagram or other photo-sharing site?
