Bucket List of Things You Must Do on Instagram in 2023 (1/2)

Instagram bucket list 2023

You’ve hit a bit of a wall on Instagram. Your content isn’t bringing you as much joy as it once did. You’re just a little bit bored, it’s not about gaining more likes or following. The honeymoon period has ended. Hey, don’t give up. You simply need to put some effort into it. It’s time to add some spice. Let’s try this bucket list of things you must do on Instagram in 2023.

1. Try out new editing tricks

Sometimes, all you want is a perfect picture. But not all of us are Photoshop experts. There are numerous simple and free apps available, though, that you can use to edit Instagram pictures.

Recently, users have been revealing their exact techniques for creating stunning Instagram images, and some of them have become very popular. Just keep in mind that it might not always work, but it’s still fun to try.

2. Make Reels from photos

Instagram was just a photo-sharing platform, but now video thrives. Instagram videos have an average engagement rate of 1.5% (it may not seem like much, but it is!) and in general outperform photos. You can create a Reel out of your pictures with a little creativity. There isn’t much effort needed. Just a little backing track and a carefully chosen slideshow can go a long way. A post made by @oye_diran is a great example of this.

3. Edit a transition Reel

In general, transition videos are a low-risk, high-reward sort of material. Regardless of the subject, they are a great form of Reel since they are so enjoyable. For example, it’s difficult to watch just one of this simple but fun Reel made by the user @irisblossomclt.

Instagram Guide is also a cool feature that barely anyone make full use of, learn more about it!

4. Edit the Story links

Updating link display text on Instagram

Including a link to your Instagram story is the simplest way to direct your followers to where you want. It could be your personal blog or e-commerce website. The sticker text will primarily be the website’s name when you paste the link into the URL box (for example, WIKIPEDIA.ORG). But you can alter that by changing the “sticker text” section (to, for example, MAKE THIS RECIPE YOURSELF).

5. Non-silly photo dump

One of Instagram’s newest—and, dare we say, cutest—trends is photo dumps, which Gen Z invented. A photo dump has the advantage that it doesn’t have to be gorgeous. A good example is Emma Chamberlain’s photo dump from a trip to Bath, England. It included both a picture of her sobbing and literally a dumpster. Photo dumps, however, can also be a tool to update your followers on your activities. And perhaps even to promote some of your content. If you’ve tried the silly-only photo dump, consider uploading one that functions more like a highlight reel or life update instead. These can be just as interesting.

6. Recreate a trending Reel

We humbly advise simply looking through everyone else’s Instagram Reels. You’ll see that other businesses and creators are each putting their own unique spin on the trend using the same music. Hit the audio name at the bottom of the screen after you’ve discovered a trend you like. To be sure you fully get the trend, watch a lot of them before giving it a try.
