    Thank you for the tips! I’m still struggling with Instagram, but people are loving my Hawaii photos as I’ve almost doubled my followers in 5 days. I’ve also had a lot of fun playing with videos lately, though I think I still need to download a video editing app

      Hopefully some of them help! Your account is looking fab – what’s not to like about Hawaii right? 😀 Don’t be afraid to follow other accounts that are travel related – there’s nothing wrong with subtly popping up on their screen to introduce yourself in my opinion. Sometimes people just don’t know what they don’t know. Looks like you’re doing a great job with hashtags too! If you did want to you could try to choose a similar editing style across your photos so there’s cohesion even if the colours are different – I like the main ‘lux’ option for mine to make them nice and bright and bring out the highlights on water etc.

        I have such issues staying to one editing style because I love them all for different photos! But I should really make a point of picking a few edits or filters and sticking to them. Thank you for the advice! I think I will soon be devoting an entire day a week to instagram and networking.

    So many great ideas, I’ve been looking for ways to grow the account organically and will definitely try updating my hashtags and looking at other comparable accounts for travelers! I would love to get your advice about how to create a “look” when I’m posting pics of places I’m visiting – I can’t get my head around that one as every place is different (obviously) and if the places aren’t all the same, how do I make the pictures all ‘feel’ the same? All suggestions welcome, thank you in advance!!
