Introduction

Make sure you check out my other article on how to get more followers!

In this article, I will teach you some ways my bunsties and make a decent amount of likes!

Note: I am not a professional Instagrammer, I am just publishing this article to help you. Please do not take offense if you don’t do these things.

What My Bunny Friends and I Thought

Picture

Kornberrybuns

“I know the bunny/pet community is a lot different than the cosplay/costume pages I run through.”

The picture is honestly the biggest part of why your followers like it. If they see that the picture is artsy, creative, or cute; they will like your post!

If the post doesn’t go with your theme, is poor quality, or is spammy-looking, I don’t think it is a good idea to post it. If you don’t mind getting 50 likes on it when you have 500 followers, go ahead. For example, when I post a giveaway picture, I don’t care if I get 60 likes on it.

Your pictures are also the first thing your likers will see, and maybe they will follow you if they see that you have a nice feed. People are people, so if they don’t like your picture, they won’t like it.

 

This picture was taken from an iPhone X and the quality was really good; so it got more likes.

 

Engagement

Loptales

“…I am really engaged with the community overall and take an active interest in everyone’s stories and journeys and am just always offering support in any way etc. I think that it’s so wonderful and important to be engaged with the community overall…”

I think that this is a very important factor in getting some bunny to like your picture. If you always talk to this bunny, they will remember to check your profile, look at your story, AND like your posts!

Being engaged will help people to remember you and get reminded of your kindness when you were talking to them!

Tagging

Tagging is a really good way to tell your bunsties that you posted. You should press the “send post” button and send to a group chat, bunsties or any bunny! This will let them know just in case they didn’t see the post.

-You should tag your most active bunsties or the buns you talk most with.

-When you tag people, make sure you reach the limit so that maximum amount of people know.

-When tagging, try not to put the tags all the way on the bottom or all the way on the top, make the tags noticeable so that people could see who you are tagging. This matters sometimes because if the tag isn’t shown, it might limit someones ability to get to the person’s profile.

Tagging them might get them to tag you as well! Getting them to tag you might get others to go to your profile. They might see your account name and click on it!

This is how you should tag your post

Active Accounts

Kornberrybuns

“The only thing I tend to stay away from is giveaways as a way to gain followers because I have heard a lot of people will just follow you for the prize and unfollow you once it is over. As a result, you don’t get as many engaging followers or they just simply unfollow you.”

Make sure your followers are active! Not accounts that will follow you and then unfollow you. As Kornberrybuns mentions that giveaways will attract followers that might just do it for the prize.

Ratio

If you have 100 followers and you are only getting 50 likes, do not assume that 50 likes are bad! 50/100 is 1/2! This means that half of your followers are active! That is pretty good! If you think about it, if you have 1,000 followers, you are going to get 500 likes!

Like Spree Posts

Commenting and participating in Like Spree Posts is a good strategy to get likes. That doesn’t mean they are going to follow you, but it is a good way to get likes. The rules are probably going to be simple and it only takes a short amount of time! A great way for you to get more likes.

This is an example of a like spree post where you would comment a certain amount of tags and then like everyone else’s posts and get likes in return

@officialfollowpawwty

Instagram Stories

Utilize your Instagram stories! They are a really useful tool and remind your viewers to “check this out” or “like this post”. If you have posted something, you should put it on your story. Maybe some bunny will come across your story and they didn’t like your post yet! This will help a lot.

Polls

This ties into the Instagram Stories, but do polls. If you have done other bunny’s polls, you would know that if you said no or didn’t say, you would feel bad. For example, if you came across a bunny account and they said: “did you like my recent post?” “yes” “no”. You would be pulled to say yes and go like their picture. Same thing for your story!

This is an example of a poll to remind people to like my post

This is an example of a goal for my followers

Goals

You should have goals for your followers, or even for yourself! Maybe you want to get 100 likes on this post, or 500 likes on that post. It all varies.

On your story, you should put “Get all my recents to 400 likes!” This might remind them to like your post! Maybe you could even put a prize at the end, “I will do a shout out spree” or “spam like the 400th liker” something like that.

 

Variety

I think variety is very important. Make sure you have a variety of photos. Not photos that came from the same photoshoot. You could repeat the same photoshoot twice, but once you get to three, I’m not so sure.

For example, if I had a photo shoot with Snuffles and I posted one photo and then posted another one from the same photoshoot, and then again the next day; it seems redundant and boring.

Giveaway posts are also another thing. If they see that you have a bunch of giveaway posts on your feed, they probably won’t follow you or like your posts. Giveaway posts are a bit messy.

What Really Matters

Loptales

“I think that it’s so wonderful and important to be engaged with the community overall, not to think about the likes etc but to remember these are all people & bunnies and to get to know them and build relationships!”

This is really important. The likes don’t determine how awesome or how cute your bunny is. In the end, you just want to share your bunny! I believe the purpose of having a bunstagram is to share your bunny’s growth and happiness!

Like Loptales said, it is about growing in the community. Of course getting more likes and more followers are good, but just remember that in the end, this is a great experience to watch other bunnies grow, and grow in the bunny community!

Conclusion

I would say the most major thing is engagement and the quality of the picture. Those are key factors in some bunny liking your photo.

Things My Bunny Friends and I Have Used

Follow Trains

Cinnabundabunny

“So some things I did was I participated in follow trains :)”

I think follow trains are a great idea! You can help other people grow, and yourself grow! Win-win!

One time, I did a huge all-pet follow train, and I gained over 20 followers in just 2 hours! These really work! It might be a hassle to follow every account that commented, but it is worth it.

Active/Follow Other Bunny Accounts

Rufio.rabbit

“I followed fellow bunny accounts and got active on their accounts and other people noticed my accounts from that.”

Cinnabundabunny

“I also followed a lot of bunny accounts…”

Sapphireandteddy

“I just followed lots of people and commented lots and they followed me back…”

Following your fellow bunny friends are really crucial! If you don’t follow them back, they might think you are selfish or something along those lines. It is okay to not follow non-bunny accounts!

You should also comment on other bunnies posts! It will show that you are active! Maybe someone will look at the comments and see yours! They will click and follow!

Make sure you have a tight bond with your followers! Maybe DM them and become pawtners!

Spammed Likes

Cinnabundabunny

“…I spammed a lot of people and that’s how my account grew so fast!”

Spamming likes will get them to notice you and follow you back!

Spamming likes can also lead to some shout outs!

On my account, I shout out spam likes! This might get them some followers.

Replying to Comments on Your Post

This is not really a way to get more followers, but it just helps you look nice. I just think it is a nice thing to do! It shows your followers and commenters that you care, and you are looking!

Giveaways

Cinnabundabunny

“But also I am currently hosting a giveaway so that attracts more people to join and participate”

Giveaways are a really fast way of getting followers, but you should do your first giveaway at 500 or 1,000. This is because more people will participate and it will be a bigger milestone than 300 or 400.

Giveaways can get you many followers! You could possibly gain double the amount of followers!

Connection

I think having a bond with other bunny accounts really makes a difference! Maybe DM them and support them! Reply to their story, comment on their posts, spam-like them, and more!

This will make them become active on your account. This is really useful because they could help you grow, and you could help them grow!

Conclusion

In the end, followers don’t really matter. What is important is the amount of support and loves you get from your bunny friends! These are just some of the ways that you can get more followers! I know there are many more, but these are the major ones.

Meeting

Bentley

“I think it’s really cool that people can meet through their love of rabbits…”

Meeting bunny friends is amazing. I was afraid to at first and when I started opening up and meeting new friends, it became easy and amazing! If you are on Instagram and see new accounts, make sure you give them a warm welcome!

Conclusion

The bunny community is just an amazing and special community. I am so lucky to be in it! Meeting and growing with people is just a wonderful experience so don’t be afraid to DM someone you don’t know!

How to Take Professional Pictures of Your Bunny!

Make sure you follow these accounts bellow on Instagram because they gave good advice!

This article includes advice from:

@loptales (her quotes are really helpful :))

@bearthehollandlopbunny

@korncakee and @kornberrybuns they both helped 🙂

@albustheminilop

The advice from these bunny friends is really important so make sure to read all of the quotes!

Follow all those bunny friends! If you ask a question or give me advice on Instagram or my email, I will shout you out!

Introduction

How do I get my Instagram followers? How do I take good pictures of my bunny? These questions are things that can be answered in this article! Make sure you read all the things that my bunny friends and I said! Hope you like this article!

Advice from me and my bunny friends

You don’t need a really expensive camera

For my Instagram, I only use my iPhone and editing apps. Although having a camera is better, a phone camera is just as sufficient! You don’t need professional cameras to take good photos! Many of my bunny friends use their phone camera.

You should use natural light

@bearthehollandlopbunny

“use natural light”

@loptales

“Taking photos near a window or if outside [do it outside], just in good light. I always use natural light so I open our blinds and use window lighting and take the photo while facing away from the window.”

@albustheminilop

“good lighting”

Natural light is such a big component of professional looking photos! Natural light makes everything lighter, makes you look good, and just doesn’t look artificial if you know what I mean.

Open the blinds/curtains if you can. If it is night time, use light in your room. If it is morning, take advantage of the light!

Angle/focus

@korncakee and @kornberrybuns

“…slower movements with the bunnies definitely helps. Getting that perfect angle to make sure the background works well can be hard sometimes, but totally worth…”

@loptales

“Be sure to focus on the bunny’s eyes/face the best you can…”

Getting the right angle really helps when you’re talking about bunnies. Sometimes some bunnies look better on the side, in the front, or posing some kind of way! The angle is so important!

Nothing in the room/background

@loptales

“Another thing is a good background which means no clutter. Having a nice clean background is important, for example, a white wall or some sort of blanket hanging behind [your] bunny. OR some[thing] interesting, cute surrounding such as a bed or on top of a basket or chair with a blanket.”

Making sure nothing is in the background makes the focus on bunnies so much better. If there is something blue and green in the background, the person that is viewing your photo will pay attention to that. Also, nothing in the room makes it look clean and well thought out.

You could even buy a background if you don’t want to clean! There are plenty of backgrounds to shop for!

Accessories

Put cute things on your bunny to make them look cute! You could put hats, bows, and even a cape on your bunny! Be creative! People will like your photo just because of that flower crown, that straw hat, and that cute homemade cape!

Editing

@loptales

“I edit all of my photos with a couple of different photos and apps and keep the editing consistent as I do with all of my photography work. I make sure the photo is nice and bright and clear.”

This is my advice, just don’t make it too filtered. If things are too saturated, your bunny will look different in the picture and they want to see your bunny the way they are in real life!

Colors

@loptales

“Working with neutral colors around bunnies are really great! That’s what I typically tend to stick with. And any colors that make bunnies stick out. Since Bristol (her bunny) is dark, I would use white blankets and backgrounds etc.”

When you work with dark bunnies like Bristol, you should make the background light! This is because it brings out your bunnies color! When you have a bunny that is light like mine, you should use darker colors in the background like black.

“Be ready at all times”

@korncakee and @kornberrybuns

“Bunnies especially. Nova goes from 0 to 100 like it’s nothing so the moments go by really quick!”

Bunnies are super fast! You don’t know when they are about to go from “0 to 100”! They could binky, they could flop, they could do anything! Make sure your camera is always ready!

Comfortable

@loptales

“Another important thing is never making the bunny uncomfortable or putting in a dangerous situation, bunny’s safety always comes first!”

@albustheminilop

“Short sessions only to ensure bunny doesn’t get stressed out.”

This is really important, your bunny’s comfort level should be high for the picture to really mean something. If you forced the bunny to go in the water just for a picture, that is not okay. Water is extremely dangerous to bunnies.

Composition

@loptales

“…thinking about the composition of the photos is important, which is how the photo is gramed and what you include in the frame. For example, some things to look into, symmetry, the ‘rule of thirds’, cropping, leading lines…”

This is also important, make sure your bunny is in the middle if that is your main focus in the photo. For example, if the wording is the main focus, then you would put the wording in the center.

Patience

@loptales

“…be patient! It might take lots of photos to get one great one!”

This is really true. Bunnies aren’t humans! You can’t tell them to pose like ____ or like ____, your bunny will probably already be cute! Taking a bunch of photos also really helps so that you can pick the best one!

Treat/pet

@bearthehollandlopbunny

“…give your bunny a treat and pet them so they get comfortable and stay in one place”

Also, you should treat them after the photo shoot! This will show them, “oh, she/he gave me a treat when I was good, I’ll do it next time”!

Conclusion

Setting up the picture of a bunny can be very hard! Taking a picture of your bunny can be very hard! Editing the picture of your bunny can be very hard! If you want to take quality photos of your bunny these are somethings that you need to follow.
