Instagram

Evening all,

Has anyone got feedback on Instagram as a means of procuring work, or on the hole has the experience of those who have been busy with it been just reward for the investment in time put in??

Best

    HI Paul,

     

    I stopped using it for a while but have now come back round to it. I've have had a few private messages for work but only one has ever come to fruition from one of my replies and this was someone who was searching the tags for my local area.

    I now link instagram to my website and have the 'instagram' page as my gallery and now I'm also doing a targeted google ads campaign I am getting hits from this and can see that people are looking at instagram through my website. So in a roundabout way it's working for me!

    I'm not religously posting every day as some people are, which is supposedly key to building followers but I just post things which I think are worth posting every now and then.

    • Thanks Kevin,

       Once I eventually get my website up and running, I'll probably do the same. Are you near a large city by chance?? I wonder if that impacts more on interest or not.?

        I'm on the borders of Surrey and Greater London so despite not being that far out from London, it's a big area to cover. I tend to keep my hashtags relevant to the local towns around me rather than trying to appeal to the wider London audience.

        Agree with everything Dan is saying below. I do also use it to see what other people are doing with jobs, tools, ideas, learning etc

         

        • Thanks again Kevin..

  • Instagram is good for networking, getting to know other people in the trade, showcasing work, getting ideas and using as a gallery to direct enquries to if they want to see your work.
