4 Instagram Post Tips for Freelance Writers
1. Post Meaningful Content
The audience are the judges and jury. Engagement typically means your audience likes your content , a photo with a face performs almost 40% better than a photo without a face. Human fascination helps viewers better connect with you.
Crack a grinning smile, take a selfie and overlay it with text. Be a little creative adding in lighting and fun framing if you’re camera shy. Use one of the editing feature on Instagram or use a stand-alone photo editor to add a bold caption relating to the type of work you do or a project you’re working on.
In the comments section, tell your readers a little about the topics you enjoy pursuing and how they can contact you.
2. Let Your Profile Do The Talking
Whenever possible, use the screenshot feature on your mobile to come up with non-photo posts for Instagram. Why? It’s quick and convenient!
Login to your Uklic profile on your smartphone, screenshot it, then open Instagram. Crop and edit the image to your liking and post!
In the comments section, be sure to tell your fans where they can find you on Uklic and to look for the page you just posted. You can even add a link to your profile in the bio section of your Instagram page. It’s also nice to share a sentence or two about why you love writing and what niche you specialize in.
3. Video is King
It’s no secret that video content get priority and go to the top of Instagram feeds. So, why not make a quick marketing video to help promote your writing?
Use your smartphone’s video camera to record a casual chat about who you are, what services you offer and where publishers can find you online.
That’s it! Upload, edit and post. Be sure to use a handful of hashtags related to your writing area and style to gain new viewers who may need your services.
