5 Steps to Creating an Instagram Profile That People Can't Help But Follow

You know that social media can do everything from positioning you as a thought leader to building your brand to landing you a job. Accordingly, your LinkedIn and Twitter profiles are probably top-notch.

But what about your Instagram? It was one thing to have an account that was all food and selfies a couple of years ago, but nowadays it’s so much more than what you ate last night.

Think about what you try to do when building a connection with a networking contact—or, yes, even a hiring manager: You share who you are and what interests you. Well, Instagram can help you do just that. Check out the infographic below from Digital Information World for easy and effective ways to revamp your (personal) brand—without losing your personality. Yes, this is for companies, but there’s no reason these lessons can’t apply to you, too.
