Engage your followers.

  2. Great post. Instagram is such a fun tool to use, because like Pinterest it is very visual, not so much text based. These are some awesome tips that will help anyone looking to increase their use of Instagram, whether they are a blogger or run any kind of business.

  3. I spend 10-15 minutes a day target liking and following people who use similar hashtags. It really does work.
