Kick-Ass Instagram Feeds for Inspiration

IMG_2275_polarr.JPG

One of my favorite tips for Instagram is “a great post gets a like, but a great feed gets a follow.” Someone will decide whether or not they are going to follow you within a few seconds of looking at your Instagram feed, so you need to make a good impression. And today, with one billion monthly active users, 500 million of whom scroll through their Instagram feed every day, it’s crucial that you create a feed that sticks out from the crowd.

Creating a consistent Instagram aesthetic is one of the best and easiest ways to make your feed look fabulous so you can attract new followers with ease. By choosing a color scheme for your Instagram and picking out a filter or two, you can easily make all of your photos flow together with the click of a button.

Here at Girlcrush Collective, we’re obsessed with Instagram. Have you checked out our Instagram membership site, InstaCrush Society? We have both free and premium membership options and we will provide you with everything you need to run a successful Instagram account.
