I hope you had a great weekend! A HUGE shout out to my husband and kids whom spoiled me over the weekend with flowers, cards, gifts and best of all, a well thought-out picnic of my favorite foods at the place where we had our wedding reception almost 15 years ago. 🙂
I may be a little behind, but better late than never as I just got on Instagram–you can check me out — (@jwsinteriors) and I’m now a little addicted, much like I was when I first got on Pinterest!
While I gain new followers and find ones that I want to follow, I have learned something quickly in my “testing” of which photos people “like” the most, and then start following you because of the photos they see on your page.
Here’s what I found in my short time on Instagram:
1) Use brightly colored objects–it’s a no brainer that bright colors catch attention
2) Make it pretty–there are millions of photos out there, so make yours SUPER pretty
3)Use the right hashtags (and honestly, I’m still learning what works best) Some of the popular hashtags are #photooftheday #love #inspiration
That said, here are two photos I took after styling a table vignette and got instant likes within seconds. Now I’m not saying I had 500 likes in 5 minutes (keep in mind I just got on, but considering I’m new to this, I was happy)
The first is a vignette I put together using everyday items–my candle, perfume, one flower bud, a couple bracelets and my clutch.
#2–Yes, you guessed it..a simple photo of roses I received for Mother’s Day
