Instagram has been around for awhile now and for years I have refused to join. I didn’t want to add another social media platform to my already busy schedule. But with how popular it has gotten with bloggers and now with a lot of sponsors requiring it, I have realized that joining might be pro-active.
I just joined yesterday and already my mind is spinning with all kinds of ideas and how to use it to my advantage for blogging and for personal use. If you are not on Instagram, you might want to jump on the bandwagon and if you are, here are some Instagram tips that might help you use it to the best advantage.

I still don’t understand how to use instagram for blog traffic because people can’t click over to the blog from your photos. I love the app for editing and sharing photos but fail to see how it can possibly help me as a blogger.
You gotta read the articles I listed! Yes, you can’t click over from the photo, but you can share your blog post photo and have them click over from your PROFILE blog link! I am still learning, but I really think this could be a semi-good traffic builder. Read the articles if you can and if you join let me know! 🙂
Yeah I read some of them but I’ve never had any one click over to my blog and my url has been in my profile since I joined up!
Yeah but you have to ask them to click over when you share your blog post’s photo. Like if you posted the one today of you and Russ praying or the one of the list and said to read the full post see the click on my blog link in my profile… OR I read that you can still share the blog link and people can copy and paste it in their browser. Also, if you put a watermark on your photos like your blog name or website address people may come find it s well. I am still new to it so maybe it’s not as good as everyone says, but I have got a lot of sponsor opps lately that require Instagram so I decided to try it out. I will let you know if I get anywhere with it!
I love Instagram. I didn’t join for the longest time either. I recently just started another Facebook page for my blog. I hope you have a great weekend!
Bookmarking this. I am on Instagram but only know the basics. I want fancy boarders and other cool edits for my pics 🙂 Thanks
Thanks for this great article! I just started using Instagram, and have it post over to Twitter and Facebook. Hoping it generates more traffic for me!
I don’t use instagram, since I don’t have a smart phone, but the great photos people put together so simply are one of the biggest reasons I’d consider a smart phone. Great tutorial!
Great info! Def pinning. Visiting from #SITSBlogging 🙂
Great round up of posts!
I love Instagram – but I do not really use it for traffic. I use it more to connect with people and build the relationship – and that kinda builds traffic by building my community… if that makes sense lol
