Want to Have More Likes in Your IG Posts?

In today’s generation of online presence and ever smarter devices, instantly sharing photos and memories to the world has become the norm.

And Instagram, the most popular app to “share a square” whether it is an epic party photo or an iconic landmark encapsulated in this media site, it has so far dominated the photo sharing scene.

For those wanting to tap into Instagram’s beautifully creative and quirky world, here are a few tips to expand your presence and get more likes.

1.   For starters, Instagram has their own built-in filters and photo editing tools with a wide range of capabilities from tweaking the saturation to applying vignettes, it can be on its own a strong all-in-one photo editing software. But for enthusiasts, third party editing tools such as Snapseed can add more flair and turn your photo into a masterpiece!

2.   Find an iconic landmark and show it in a unique way. In Singapore, one of the most recognizable landmarks is the Marina Bay Sands hotel and casino, a sprawling complex of restaurants, retail shops and a beautiful architecture mimicking the ships that make Singapore one of the largest maritime hubs in Asia. In the picture below, I have lined up the tower with the light from the sunset, beaming down beautifully into the bay below. Sunrises and sunsets are often the best times to get dramatic lighting, so make sure to wake up early or if not, catch the afternoon sun before it gets too dark!


3.    Join relevant photo hubs and use their hashtags for your pictures. Since I am currently residing in Singapore, I decided to do a quick search of local photo hubs such as Explore Singapore. They usually search for photos tagged with #exploresingapore and feature you if your photo catches their eye! The photo hubs also open you up for more interaction with local Instagrammers who share your passion and may even get you an invite to their photo walks!


4.   Use tagging applications such as Tags4Likes. In Instagram, hashtags are a way to let your photo be recognized across the entire community and is usually broken down into several categories such as the ever popular #selfie, elusive #nature shots, beautiful #travel sceneries and of course who can go for a week without a #party! Below is a snapshot of how Tags4Likes work, with its own “Most Popular” hashtags category which means that those are the most used hashtags and “Nature” category for those wanting a touch of mother nature in their photos!


5.   Join Instagram’s own Weekend Hashtag Project. Every week, Instagram’s own account, @instagram launches their own version of a creative contest for all active Instagrammers, often featuring unique ideas for photos to share in Instagram. For this weekend, they chose to feature small shops and artisanal establishments, with a goal of featuring how each shop is contributing to the culture and identity of a place. It also promotes local businesses too!
