More than ever, creatives have to be reachable online to be recognized. For designers, photographers and artists, this would mean showcasing your work on visual sharing platforms like Instagram, though standing out in a sea of 500 million active users is easier said than done.

Imparting some tidbits from experience, logo presentation maker Pitchproof unveils five simple tips to “growing as a designer on Instagram,” with a bonus trick for extroverted talents who wish to go further.
While the post refers to designers, these recommendations can be easily applied to anyone in the creative field—or perhaps even everyday Instagrammers. The guide suggests utilizing Instagram Stories, documenting your work process, imparting your knowledge, being a consistent uploader, and interacting with your followers in the comments section. An additional tip encourages you to post long-form content on Instagram’s ‘IGTV’ for higher engagements.
Instagram also recently made it possible for users to shop products by tapping them in posts, so you might want to use that feature to display your artworks too.
