According to Dan Zarrella there is a science to getting more likes on Instagram. (Mr Zarrella is a social media scientist at HubSpot)
Dan analysed 1.5 million Instagram photos to determine why some images were more popular than others. The results may just surprise you!
In a nutshell here they are:
1. Use as many Hashtags as you can
2. Don’t Use the Filters
3. Use a Strong Call-to-Action (“like” , “comment” etc.)
4. Don’t over-edit your Instagram photos!
5. Have more edges & structures in your photos
6. Use the Right Colours (greys, blues & greens)
7. Keep Photos Bright
8. Include Faces (people love faces!)
