The most common question I get is, “How do I get my photo featured on SeniorInspire”.
These days there are a number of ways to have your photos considered for feature on SeniorInspire.
Monday thru Friday Instagram Features
The easiest way to have your photos considered for feature is to use the hashtag #SeniorInspire when you post on Instagram. Photos that have been hashtagged are reviewed daily on an ongoing basis and featured Monday thru Friday.
You can also use the @Tag SeniorInspire on your Instagram posts, but honestly this method does not work as well as just using the hashtag. That said, I do occasionally look at our @Tag page for features.
Sending SeniorInspire a DM or tagging them in an Instagram Story are two ways that do NOT work. There’s no easy way for me to repost photos from DM’s or Stories, so your odds of being considered for feature that way is as close to zero as can be.
Also, please keep in mind that if your account is private, SeniorInspire will not see your hashtags or @ tags unless we follow you. Moral of the story: DON’T BE PRIVATE!
Fun fact: 491,000 photos have been tagged #SeniorInspire on Instagram! So make sure you’re posting quality work that will stand out!
