Success tips for poets looking to thrive on instagram.

What ARE SOME METHODS FOR SUCCESS?

Success on Instagram is many times determined by… well, Instagram itself. With the ever-changing algorithm and shift in rules, it’s easy to find yourself thriving one year only to be flagged the next. At the time of writing this article, a few things seem to be true:

  • Instagram rewards utilization of its features: Posts, Stories, Live, Reels, Polls, etc.
  • Maxing out on hashtags may result in less viewership. (Try using 5-6)
  • Engaging with followers is important. (Follow up on DMs, respond to comments, etc.)

Which Hashtags should POETS be using?

Use between 5-6 hashtags for each post. Here are some options:

#ThePoetsList, #poetry, #writersoninstagram, #writersofinstagram, #writingcommunity, #writerscommunity, #poetrycommunity, #poeticjustice, #worldofwriters, #writersaroundtheworld, #poets, #writersaroundtheglobe, #ByMePoetry, #APoeticView, #poeticthoughts, #poetsofig, #poetsofinstagram, #poetsoninstagram, #poetsociety, #poetrygram, #instapoetry, #poetrycommunityinsta, #poetrylovers, #ButtonPoetry, #writersworldwide, #worldofpoets, #poetstext, #wordstagram

WHICH PAGES SHOULD I BE TAGGING?

This section will continue to be updated as there are countless Instagram pages devoted to featuring poets.

Here are some options (include @ before each handle):

thepoetslist, bymepoetry, apoeticview, poetsandwriters, poetsglobe, poetsgrid, abodeofpoets, poetryglance, budding.writers, poetsnwritersofig
