I love lists. I love writing them, and I love checking them off even more. It makes me feel accomplished. Here’s an Instagram checklist for you to check off, and feel oh so good about your profile.
Does your bio explain who you are or your what your brand is? Leave no room for question.
Is there a way to get in touch with you?
Are you using the website link and changing it when applicable?
Are you using an app like Bit.ly to keep track of those links?
Are you using a scheduler and planning out your content?
Do you give love back to people who have given you love?
Do you check your stats or analyze the content that is performing best?
Do you give yourself time to leave meaningful comments on accounts that you don’t know to increase visibility?
Do you use one or two filters for a cohesive feed or stick to an editing technique?
Is your content providing value to your audience?
Are you using call to actions when applicable?
Are you being your authentic self?
If you post quotes, are you using the same fonts and adding your site or handle to it?
Are you telling stories to capture you or your brand’s personality?
Are you replying to questions and comments?
Are you using hashtags that your target audience is using, not your competitors?
Are you using relevant, niche hashtags?
