Look at the photos they publish and look for the right inspiration for publishing your photos on the social network.
Don’t forget to make a schedule for the content to be published. Be active within the social network and try to post a photo at least once a day. At the time of writing, Instagram doesn’t allow you to schedule content publishing, but when you have some free time you can create post drafts that remain in your device’s memory, to be published later.

How to become Instagram famous and make money
Instagram is a photographic social network but, in order for the published photos to be seen by a greater number of people, it is necessary to make correct use of hashtags.
If you are not well informed on the matter, you should know that hashtags are nothing more than clickable labels that allow you to categorize your images.
Using hashtags on Instagram is essential, since this allows you to categorize images and make them appear in the search results of the social network. In fact, people very often do research on Instagram starting from hashtags.
Consequently, if the photo you shared does not have any hashtags, no one else, apart from your followers or more generally the people who visit your profile, will be able to find the content you published.
On Instagram it is possible to insert up to 30 hashtags in the description. You don’t have to use them all; the important thing is to insert hashtags related to the shared photo. Not sure which hashtags to use? Do not worry. There are several tools that allow you to identify the hashtags to use based on the published image.
In order to search for hashtags to use quickly and easily, I recommend using the Top Hashtag website, the Websta website, or the application for Android and iOS Tag for Likes.
On Instagram, it’s not just you. If you want to become famous on this photo sharing platform, you need to get noticed by other users of the social network. Interaction with other people is key, so don’t forget to take a look at other users’ profiles as well.
I don’t know if you noticed, but on Instagram users seem to be “shy”: many put “like”, but there are not many who comment. To become popular on Instagram reverse this trend and start interacting with the social network community.
How to become Instagram famous
Be spontaneous and don’t comment only using emojis: write a textual comment that is sincere, in case of appreciation. A constructive comment is also fine if you have to criticize a posted photo.
Follow the profiles of the people you are interested in and send them a private message to thank them if they follow you back. The interaction with the community is the key to success: in this way you will not be just an account that publishes photos but a person with real interests and passions.
You can also take advantage of Instagram’s advanced tools like Stories and Live Streaming to make videos where you show yourself firsthand. Tell about your passions in live streaming as if these were a sort of “behind the scenes” to the publication of the photos on Instagram; you will see that people will appreciate your spontaneity and naturalness.
In particular, I think Live is definitely the best tool to use if you want to become famous on Instagram. I say this because, following the introduction of a new feature, Instagram allows you to create a live broadcast with your follower. Inviting a viewer to personally participate in your live stream is in my opinion a great way to interact with your community.
Do your Facebook friends know about your passion for photography but don’t have an Instagram account through which they can view your photos? Don’t worry, you can fix it very easily by posting Instagram photos on Facebook as well.
Doing it is really simple: in the following lines, I’ll explain how to do it. The first thing you need to do is link your Instagram account to your Facebook profile. To do this, click on the little man symbol at the bottom right. Then tap on the button with the gear symbol that you can see at the top right, and look for the Settings section.
Then tap on the Connected accounts item: at this point select Facebook from the list of available social networks.
Then connect your Facebook account so that the publication of Instagram contents can also take place on Facebook. However, sharing will have to be authorized manually for each image you upload to Instagram: to do so, you will only have to move the lever corresponding to the Facebook entry that you will find in the posting screen of a photo on Instagram from OFF to ON.
In this way the photo will also be published on your Facebook profile and you will be able to reach a greater audience.
How to make streams
Another great way to reach followers is to stream and go live on Instagram. Would you like to make a live streaming video on Instagram from your trusty iPhone but you don’t know how to do it? No problem, I’ll explain it to you right away.
If you have a mobile device with an iOS operating system, all you need to do to start a live stream is to open the Instagram application. Once started, press the house- shaped icon located at the bottom left to access the app home page.
At this point you have to tap on the icon with the camera symbol located at the top left; in this way you will activate the camera of your device and you will be able to access the section of the app dedicated to live streaming and video recording.
To start a live video on Instagram you must now locate the item Live which will allow you to make a video in live streaming. Before pressing the button I indicate, make sure you are ready to record. In the event that the environment you are in is poorly lit, you can manually start the flash of your device by pressing the button with the symbol of a lightning bolt.
Pressing it repeatedly will start the app’s night mode ( symbol of a moon ) which will allow you to make a live broadcast even in low light conditions.
If you want to make a live streaming video in which you show yourself in first person, press the button with the symbol of two circular arrows; in this way you will switch from the rear camera to the front one and vice versa.
To start recording live video, then press the Start Live Video button. At this point, you will only have to wait for Instagram to verify your connection and for the live broadcast after the countdown. Once the live starts, Instagram will notify your followers with a notification to let everyone know that you have started broadcasting a live video
