Did you know Instagram has over 100 million users and over 2 million accounts are opening every single day? Yes Instagram.

It is hard to believe in such a short time that Instagram’s numbers are getting close the power platform such as Twitter. This is pretty impressive for an application that is solely used with our smart phones. What started out as a fun photo sharing app now has businesses attention and now all businesses big and small are using it as a great tool to share their content and market their content.
But Jilleysue, How do I market my business and get more Instagram likes and followers?
I am getting asked this question about Instagram likes more and more every day. For some this can be very overwhelming but I have some great tips to help you get started.
1. First you must learn how to speak the Instagram language. Yes, that is right you must learn what the heck everyone is talking about when they post their photos. If you want more Instagram Likes, you have to know what the heck is going on. Have you noticed hashtags like #instaawesome, #tbt, #instasparkle? Do you look at these and say, “What in the heck are they talking about?” The funny thing about this Instagram language is that it is so micro-simple, it is almost amusing. As you are getting started on the platform, take a look around, you will soon become familiar with a few key hashtags or terms that will help you better understand what this crazy language is. Once you “get the lingo” if you will, you can dramatically grow your following for your Origami Owl business.
Many of the most popular hashtags have specific meanings and soon it will become clear.

2. Use Hashtags that have to do with Origami Owl. Do you know the most popular Instagram hashtags in the Direct Sales Industry or our Origami Owl business? If you don’t, this is the first thing you should pay attention to.

Most industries have at least a handful of hashtags specific to a particular niche. For directsales for example you might want to use #stayathomemom or #homebasedbusiness. Origami Owl, you might want to use #jewelry or #customlockets. Following important designers in the company to see what they are doing will also help you get an idea of what is working and what is not.
