MY "SECRET" & TIPS TO A BEAUTIFUL IG FEED

November 24, 2017

 

HI FRIEND AND WELCOME!

GET YOUR NOTES OUT AND GET READY TO BE INSPIRED! I WILL BE SHARING LOTS OF TIPS AND SOME OF MY FAVORITE INSPIRING ACCOUNTS :)

 

IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, YOU CAN CHECK OUT MY LAST ARTICLE "HOW I EDIT PICTURES // EDITING TIPS". THAT ARTICLE COVERS GENERAL EDITING TIPS.  

 

THIS ARTICLE IS GOING TO COVER MY 'SECRET' AND MAIN TIPS TO A BEAUTIFUL LOOKING INSTAGRAM FEED. PROMISE IT’S 100% FREE, YOU WILL NOT NEED TO PURCHASE ANYTHING OR DOWNLOAD ANY “IG PLANNING” APPS TO GET A BEAUTIFUL FEED. THE SECRET IS SO OBVIOUS YOU MIGHT EVEN THINK “GOSH WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT BEFORE”. BEFORE I SHARE THAT WITH YOU, YOU NEED TO KNOW SOME FOUNDATIONAL TIPS.

 

WHY A BEAUTIFUL INSTAGRAM FEED IS IMPORTANT:

- IF YOU'RE WANTING TO GROW YOUR ACCOUNT. YOU HAVE 0.3 SECONDS TO IMPRESS SOMEONE WHEN THEY CLICK ON YOUR PROFILE. IF YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FEED, THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO FOLLOW. :)

- IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO PARTNER WITH BRANDS. BRANDS WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY'RE GETTING IF THEY ARE WORKING WITH YOU. IF YOU CONSISTENTLY POST BEAUTIFUL LIFESTYLE PICTURES, THEN THEY KNOW THAT IS WHAT YOU’LL PROVIDE FOR THEM.

- JUST 'CAUSE! EVEN IF THE PREVIOUS TWO DO NOT APPLY TO YOU, YOU MAY STILL WANT TO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FEED. I'M HERE TO HELP!

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING YOUR STYLE AND NICHE:

IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD ALREADY, IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU WHAT YOUR THEME IS AND STICK TO IT.

 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU? WHAT DO YOU LOVE? POST ABOUT THAT.

 

SOME CATEGORIES FOR YOU TO PICK FROM ARE: FASHION, BEAUTY, FITNESS, POETRY, ANIMALS, TRAVEL, VIDEOGRAPHY, PHOTOGRAPHY, ART, DANCE, DESIGN, MODELING, SHOP, ETC..  THERE ARE SO MANY CATEGORIES TO PICK FROM, SO FIND A COUPLE (1-4 AT MOST) OF YOUR FAVORITES AND STICK TO THOSE! TRY TO PICK ONES THAT PAIR WELL. FOR EXAMPLE, SOME GOOD COMBOS ARE FITNESS & NUTRITION, PHOTOGRAPHY & TRAVEL, ART & LIFESTYLE, CUTE QUOTES AND COUPLE STUFF, ETC... BY STICKING TO YOUR THEMES, PEOPLE WILL BETTER PREDICT AND INTERACT WITH WHAT YOU WILL BE POSTING.

 

THE IMPORTANCE FINDING INSPIRATION:

NO MATTER WHAT YOU CHOOSE, THERE WILL BE WONDERFUL ACCOUNTS WITH BEAUTIFUL FEEDS TO INSPIRE YOU. FINDING OTHER INSPIRING ACCOUNTS CAN HELP YOU FIND YOUR OWN STYLE. HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITES AND SOME ANALYSIS AS TO THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM THEM. (YOU CAN CLICK ON THE ICON TO SEE THE FULL SCREENSHOT)

 

PERSONAL FAVORITES

HERE ARE SOME OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITE MINIMALISTIC ACCOUNTS. MAJOR NOTE IS THAT EACH HAS ITS OWN COLOR PALETTE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF A COHESIVE THEME. FIND YOUR FAVORITE COLORS/EDITING STYLE AND STICK TO THAT.

 

SOMETHING ELSE TO NOTE WITH THESE ACCOUNTS IS THAT THEY USE WHAT I LIKE TO CALL AN "INSPO" PIC. THESE ARE EITHER QUOTES OR MOOD BOARD PICTURES REPOSTED FROM OTHER PAGES. THESE HELP BREAK DOWN THE CLUSTER AND CREATE MORE OF A BEAUTIFUL LOOKING FEED. 

 

** PLEASE NOTE WHEN REPOSTING OTHERS WORK ** ARTIST LOVE WHEN YOU REPOST THEM. (HINT HINT REPOST ANY OF MY PICS:) IT IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COMPLIMENTS. JUST PLEASE BE SURE TO GIVE CREDIT AND TAG!

 

 

TRAVEL & PHOTOGRAPHY

THESE ARE GORGEOUS ACCOUNTS THAT ONCE AGAIN, HAVE A COLOR THEME. BE IT COOL BLUES OR BRIGHT VIBRANT COLORS, I THINK THEY'RE ALL STUNNING. ITS UP TO YOU TO DECIDE IF ONE OF THESE IF YOUR PREFERRED STYLE.

ALSO NOT THAT THESE BLOGGERS USE PROFESSIONAL EQUIPTEMENT AND HAVE HAD SO MUCH PRACTICE. DO NOT GET DOWN ON YOURSELF IF YOUR PHOTOS DO NOT LOOK LIKE THAT. REMEMBER, LOOK TO OTHERS AS INSPIRATION AND NOT TO COMPARE. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT :)

 

FASHION & LIFESTYLE

ONCE AGAIN, EACH HAS A COLOR THEME (STARTING TO SEE A PATTERN?). SOME OF THESE BLOGGERS ALSO USE "INSPO" PICS WOVEN THROUGH THEIR FEED, WHICH I REALLY LOVE BECAUSE IT HELPS BREAK DOWN THE CLUTTER. 

** NOTE SMART PHONES CAN TAKE BEAUTIFUL PICTURES TOO. IT'S ALL HOW YOU EDIT.

 

 

ARTIST INSPO

I HAD TO SHARE SOME OF MY ART INSPOT TOO :)) BUT THIS IS JUST TO SHOW YOU THAT NO MATTER WHAT CATEGORY, YOU CAN FIND INSPO!  I COULD'VE SHARED SO MANY MORE, BUT I FIGURED YOU GET THE POINT. 

 

 

NEXT STEPS // MY "SECRET"

SO NOW YOU KNOW THESE IMPORTANT TIPS:

- FIND YOUR THEME(S) AND STICK TO THEM

- FIND YOUR FAVORITE COLORS AND STICK TO THEM

- FIND SOME INSPIRATION FROM OTHER BLOGGERS

 

NOW WHAT?

 

THE NEXT STEP IS TO TEST OUT PICTURES ON YOUR INSTAGRAM FEED SIDE-BY-SIDE AND SEE IF THEY LOOK GOOD TOGETHER. THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO ACTUALLY LOOK AT YOUR NEW PICTURE NEXT TO YOUR OLD ONES AND SEE IF IT FITS IN WITH YOUR COLORS. BUT HOW?

- DO NOT POST, SCREENSHOT, AND DELETE (THAT'S ANNOYING) 

- DO NOT PAY FOR AN INSTAGRAM PLANNING APP, YOU CAN DO THIS FOR FREE. 

 

LET ME ASK, DO YOU HAVE AN OLD EMAIL? PERHAPS THAT SUPER EMBARRASSING ONE FROM MIDDLE-SCHOOL.  MY POINT IS YOU CAN USE AN ALTERNATIVE EMAIL (OR CREATE AN EMAIL) TO CREATE A SECOND INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT! I CALL THIS SECOND INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT A "CONCEPTS INSTAGRAM". THE ONE WHERE YOU GET TO TEST PHOTOS AND EDITS TILL YOU'RE HAPPY. PUT THIS PUPPY ON PRIVATE AND GO CRAZY! ** HUGE THANKS TO MY BABE EMILEE PHELPS FOR SHOWING ME THIS TRICK 4 YRS AGO. 

 

I ALSO USE THIS TOOL TO HELP SCHEDULE POSTS FOR COMPANIES. I PUT EVERY PICTURE ON MY CONCEPTS PAGE TO REMIND MYSELF WHAT POST IS GOING UP NEXT. 

 

HERES A PREVIEW OF MY CONCEPTS PAGE AND MAX'S CONCEPT PAGE
