Babes, we’re here to bring you some good news. Did you know you don’t actually have to be a professional photographer to have a to-die-for Instagram feed? As long as you’ve got your cellphone, a good eye, and a splash of confidence you’ll be rounding up new followers in no time. We’ve gathered our top 4 simple Instagram feed ideas to improve your feed right now—check them out and get to ‘gramming, girl.
Take a look at your Instagram right now – is there any consistency or is it a wild array of randomness? If you answered yes to the latter, you need a theme ASAP girl! But figuring this out is actually a super fun process. You need to ask yourself a few questions first: What kind of pages inspire me? Make a list. What are the visual similarities between them? Write those down too! How could I implement these styles into my own feed? Brainstorm ideas! Before you know it, you’ll be building a feed that is clean and minimalistic, bold and full of colour, or whatever else fits your sassy self. We LOVE the amazing theme that @aww.sam has, check it out here for some inspo.
Photo editing apps will become your new best friend – and the best part is there are SO many great cheap options! Using an app to edit your photos is probably the easiest way to instantly step up your Instagram game. Go and check out Afterlight, VSCO, or Snapseed. Have a look at how @thebungalow22 uses photo editing to highlight different colours and create cool effects here! Editing will also be a huge help in keeping up your aesthetic. You’ll have total control over the look of your photos so you can keep it consistent. Just be careful not to over-edit—you definitely don’t want to look washed out babe!
We agree you’re looking HOT in that picture, but babe, good things come to those who wait. You don’t need to drop 10 photos of your beach vacay in a row. Make ‘em wait for it a little bit. Save that gem for later on and stock up on quality content so you don’t risk running out. You’ll be able to throw some sweet content onto your feed anytime you want, and you can space out your beach pics between other pics to avoid having your feed look exactly the same all the way through. Thank us later, babe, but in the meantime, check out @colormecourtney for some inspo. This girl knows how to plan.
We completely agree your dog is cute and your boo is cuter, but people need some visual variety, babe! Posting the same type of picture over and over is a big no-no! If you think about your entire Instagram feed rather than just the individual pictures, you’ll start thinking of ways you can continuously keep spicing things up. Next time you’re having a cozy night with a cup of tea, snap a pic of your setup! If you’re at the gym getting after it, get someone to take a pic of you working that booty! At the beach for the sunset? Girl, people go wild over some pink skies! Visit @zane.roebuck’s feed to peep some variety.
So, there you have it! Are you ready to get to work? You’ll have to put in some time and effort (ugh—we know) to make these Instagram feed ideas part of your profile, but it will be worth it in the end! Don’t forget to tag us in your insta posts for a chance to be featured on our feed! And if you need some content for your feed, check out on blogpost on the best beaches to visit! You’ll definitely be able to get some insta-worthy shots at any of the spots on the list.
