Bookstagram can be a money pit if you let it. Flowers. Bookish merch. Special edition books. It’s easy to feel like an outsider if you’re not spending big money. This is your reminder that you don’t need to spend any money (or even ‘big’ money) to make your account look fabulous.
Here are a few super cheap items to make your account look great.
I’m not going to lecture you on why you should make your Bookstagram account more accessible. Instead, I’m going to give you 5 really easy ways you can make your account more accessible so you can reach more people! Start doing them now or slowly break your old habits and start new ones.
Bookstagram has become a very popular hobby for bookworms in recent years. Bookstagram is for everyone who loves to read. You have accounts that snap quick shots of what they’re currently reading. You have others who spend hours setting up photos. There’s not a wrong way to do it.
Until recently Instagram had two account types: Personal and Business. Personal is just what it sounds like. It’s the basic account that most people are using. No bells and whistles but you’re easily able to share pictures of your life.
Business is geared towards businesses. Many Instagrammers who take their hobby seriously have switched their accounts to business accounts to unlock the insights. The biggest downside to business accounts is you have to create a Facebook page. It’s not hard to do but it feels unnecessary unless you plan on using a Facebook page.
Instagram (and companies) have started to recognize the power of the influencer (including bookstagram influencers). As a result, Instagram has rolled out a third account type: Creator.
