With more than tens of thousands of followers, CSL’s social media team share their 4 favourite hacks to a follow-worthy feed!

1 FOR THE SAKE OF FOOD
Yes, #foodporn is extremely popular, but try not to post every. single. thing. you. eat.  Especially if the photo you post does not truly merit the hashtag!

2 DON’T POST OBVIOUS SHOTS
Instagram is all about creativity!  Try to avoid posting photos from boring angles.  Sure, we all need the Eiffel tower or Big Ben in our gallery, but capture an unusual foreground or a reflection.

3 POST IN A TIMELY MANNER
Nobody likes a humble bragger.  We get that you loooved that trip to an all inclusive in Mexico, but to avoid losing followers (and likes), post 2-3 shots, spaced out throughout the day.

4 GET CLOSE
Getting right into the heart of the action creates an interesting and  compelling image. Zoom into flowers or natural surroundings to that your followers get a sense of place
