Instagram is fun. It’s a different ethic than FaceBook. Hashtag use is off the charts, and your fellow voice-overists are on there. They’re posting voice-over stuff all over the place, building their online profile, creating conversations with possible clients, and getting work.
Like any other social media platform, there’s no magic pill. Ya gotta do the time. To get followers, you have to be a follower. The stuff you post has to be engaging: pics and videos if at all possible.
