Instagram – 5 Ways to Effectively Promote Your Anime Art on this platform

As an anime artist, do you want people to like, love, share, and discuss your anime art? No matter how new or how established you are as an anime artist, you can never run out of learning new ways to promote your artwork on the social mediaโ˜บ๏ธย .

Instagram, with its thriving user base of 800 million active users, draws anime artists like a moth to a flame. As a result, it has become one of the top social media platforms in 2020.

So what do you do to stand out from the crowd? And how exactly do you drive the traction your anime art deserves?๐Ÿค”

1. Be an Active Member of the Anime Communityย ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆย 

Believe it or not, but some of the most popular people making and circulating anime art on Instagram are actively involved with each other. They advise and encourage each other to do better every time. They like and share each otherโ€™s posts with it most dedication.

Also, they donโ€™t hesitate to ask for or give honest reviews of their anime arts. They participate in collaborative drawings to make it more interesting. As a result, they reach out to a larger collective fan base๐Ÿ“‘.

Interacting is the key here๐Ÿ”‘! Youโ€™re mistaken if you think an awesome piece of art promotes itself. You need to reach out to the anime community for the abundant support and love. Also, don’t forget to give it back to them in return๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ!

2. Use Relevant Hashtags in your Anime Art #๏ธโƒฃย 

Did you know that Instagram uses hashtags to classify the images in its database๐Ÿ˜ฎ? This means that your art has the inherent potential to stand among hundreds of other popular anime art if you just endow it with the right hashtags!

Mind you, it takes a lot of smart observation and hard work to get this right. Say a popular anime is in the news. You need to look for the trending hashtags related to that anime, theme your next piece of art around it, and voila! With some right timing, your drawing will secure a place among the trending posts in no time!

3.Tag People in Your Anime Art ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿง’ on Instagram

Like weโ€™ve already said, the anime art is an active community on Instagram. No matter their level, every smart and talented artist is trying to reach out to similar anime artists for support and motivation.

If you happen to know and interact with some of these, say a friend or someone you know who is always looking out for your posts, tagging them in your art will make you reach out to everyone who follows them๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

4. Post at Regular Intervalsย โฒย 

Posting at regular intervals is a great indication of how dedicated you are towards your passion for creating amazing anime art.

Draw the curtains on your piece of art at the same time every day, every week, or every month. For those who have just started out, our advice would be to keep posting one piece of art and one update at least once a week. If your art is worth it, people who are used to seeing it in their feed will slowly start anticipating its arrival which in turn fuels the hunger to hear more from you๐Ÿ”ฅ and builds your trust in your fans and friends on Instagram.

PS: You can use Insta stories to nudge your fans every time you put up a new post ๐Ÿ˜.

5. Harness the Power of Videos on Instagram ๐Ÿ“ฝ

Videos make your anime art alive! The end product you post almost always seems like a magic to your audience. How much would they love if you could just show them the entire process in a drawing and/or coloring video๐Ÿ“น! Better still, Insta lets you go live with videos! So why donโ€™t you make it an interactive session once in a while? Seeking suggestions and inviting feedback from the community as and when you progress? You could also host a giveaway๐ŸŽ on one of these videos, say for inviting a caption or for guessing the character in due time.

There are so many pages and people on Instagram and so much to do that youโ€™ll never run out of promoting ideas! As we always say, just be yourself and keep working hard. Keep creating valuable art by giving your best and use the above tactics to put them in the right place๐Ÿคช!
