Instagram is a world full of discovery, learning, and experimentation. Users try and try again with different approaches to their postings to see which types of posts will receive the most likes or engagement. Did you know that something as simple as the background in your photos could be impacting how many likes that your posts are receiving?
It’s time to go back to the basics of the art of backgrounds. Instagram users from social accounts to business accounts can all use these tips to boost their page’s popularity. We’ll start with something simple, color. Statistics show that photos with a lighter background receive 24% more likes than those postings with darker backgrounds. One recommendation to achieve this look is foam boards, these can be purchased for cheap at your local Michaels, and placed behind the item you’re photographing to create a simple, clean, background.
