A Musician’s Guide To Instagram Pictures

Sharing photos is one of the greatest ways to connect with your fans. Instagram makes it easy to post and share photos anywhere, anytime. To spice up your feed, try posting these photos the next time you’re using the app.

Fan Photos: Posting photos of your fans shows that you’re humble and appreciate your supporters. Take photos of them at your gigs or signings, and tag them on Instagram. Doing something so simple can make fans feel extra special, while keeping them fixated on your “instafeed”.

Photos Of Everyday Life: An Instagram full of professional photos is just boring. Cat photos, grocery runs, and eating out are the ordinary things fans really want to see. The app should be a place for your “non-professional” side to shine through. Have fun with it!

A Story: A cool way to entertain fans is by posting a “story” through multiple photos. If you’re on the hunt for a new guitar – show us the adventure. Film a video of your drive to the music store, and then snap a photo of your cashier. End the series with a picture of your brand new guitar. Connect with fans in the most creative ways possible.

Photo Contests: Although this isn’t a “type” of photo, holding photo-sharing contests is a great way to interact with fans. Let’s say you want to give away signed posters. Ask fans to include the hashtag “[band name] postercontest” with their photo and put it on Instagram. Not only will your band name be “trending” on the app, your fans will have a cool chance to win merch.

Next time you reach for your phone, keep these photo types in mind.
