How To Make Your Cat Instagram Famous
We live in a world these days where making money online is easier than ever. And if you know how to take cool pictures and you’ve got a knack for marketing, making money from Instagram is one of the best ways to do it. This social media platform, which originally started as a fun way for people to share pictures with a variety of filters, has now grown into one of the biggest ways of making money online. Businesses use it, and influencers make money simply because of the way they post selfies or promote positive body image. And one of the most popular ways people are making money now is by creating an Instagram for their cats. After all, who doesn’t love a funny little fluff ball?
So if you’re ready to make your cat Instagram famous right meow, so that you can start making a little money (and you can get those cute collars you’ve been dreaming of getting, and cat sweaters, too), then read on.
Curate your cat’s personality
You know that there are a number of things that make your cat special. Maybe she’s goofy and does silly things with string. Maybe he’s good at sitting on piles of books and looking literary and mysterious. Whatever it is, you need to take this one special thing and make it the focus of your cat’s Instagram. Additionally, if you’re going to have your cat posting in their own “voice,” then you need to think about how that’s going to reflect their personality type, too. Would she use cat puns? Would her hashtags be sassy?
Once you’ve created this personality, followers will come back for more. Consistency is important if you want to grow your brand with Instagram, which is why it’s generally recommended to create customized hashtags and always use the same filter. The same goes for your cat’s personality. Considering that 59 percent of Internet users aged 18 to 29 used this popular platform in 2016, the more you focus on your content, the faster you’ll get lots of followers.
Engage with your followers
Too often, people think that simply posting interesting pictures on Instagram is enough to get the right kind of attention. They’ve curated their hashtags (which we’ll get to in a second) and picked a filter that looks awesome. And when you’re posting pictures of your cat, who to you is the cutest little creature in the world, it’s easy to think that’s all you need to. But engaging with your followers is a huge part of doing well on Instagram. If anyone comments or starts following you, reply and reach out to them.
Additionally, connect with other cats’ Instagrams in your industry. If you can, go to real life events where you can make connections with potential sponsors and learn more about what’s popular meow in the cat Instagram industry. You’ll be able to connect with influencers, too, and learn about cool social media hacks you haven’t considered before. In 2016, there were over 500 million active users on Instagram, so the more you connect with them, the better you’ll do.
Be smart with your hashtag use
After awesome pictures, the second-most important aspect of any Instagram post is the hashtags you use. You can use up to 30 hashtags in any post, which is why you should use a variety of them. Check out what other cat Instagrams are using, and do the right analytics research so that you can find out what’s trending. Additionally, create some custom hashtags just for your cat (e.g., #felixthefeline), and tag what you can. Once you’ve decided what hashtags you’re going to use often, it’s also smart to copy/paste them into your phone in a permanent place so that you don’t have to type them out one by one every time you post.
Geotagging is smart, too. This may not work for all cat Instagram accounts, but if your cat is often on the move (maybe you travel a lot for work), then geotagging will automatically make your post more popular. Doing collaborations with other Instagram cat stars is a great idea, too--so if your cat is friendly, get in touch with some other people in your industry and see if they’d be up for a photo shoot.
These are some of the best strategies you can use to make your cat Instagram famous. Soon, both you and your cat will have the best of success on this platform. What other strategies do you think would work purrfectly?
