Instagram became the second biggest social media site at the end of 2014. I have used it more and more lately. It can be very powerful tool for musicians if used cleverly. I will give you more ideas on this in the weeks to come, but for now go and download their app and register a Instagram account. Try to get a name that is the same as your Websites Domain name, you did register one after the Quick tip 9, didn’t you?
Then the fun begins 🙂 The Instagram tools make your photos look really cool really fast, just try out some of the filters and frames. And for starters, take a quick snap of your self. As a musician I believe it is very important that people connect a person with your brand. Then share for example a picture of your favourite instrument, your favourite songwriting spot, some every day photos. And next yo can get more adventurous by sharing studio or live photos as well.
People love to see what goes behind the scenes, the real life stuff. Be real and share it willingly and you will be surprised how well people will respond 🙂 Happy snapping.
