Instagram is an awesome way to show off pictures of your hostel to your potential audience. Even if your hostel is not looking its best or is looking a bit old and shabby you can still look good on Instagram, that’s the beauty of it. It’s why Instagram has 152 million users worldwide, and the number is growing.
As you’ll find out in Easy Social Media for Hostels, you don’t need to be active on Instagram every day for your efforts to be successful. Start an account using the instructions in the eBook, do the 30-Day Instagram challenge and you my friend have got yourself a useful sales tool that your audience can interact with as and when they need.
To be successful on Instagram you need a good mix of:
- Fun times
- Facility shots
- Surrounding scenery
- Nearby views
- Hostel events
I have worked my way through hundreds of profiles and these are my favourite hostels on Instagram that are really using the channel to the best of its ability. There’s no doubt they’ll have got some bookings from their awesome Instagram accounts. Check them out and get inspired!
