For all you weekday warriors and work-from-homers with big dreams, Instagram captures your do it yourself spirit. Take a break from sipping your coffee and making a difference in the world to get some inspiration for how to keep on track with your goals.
Richard Branson is the creator of Virgin Group, which owns over 400 companies. No big deal. Branson likes to fill his account with the latest adventures in his lifestyle as he travels the world. He also keeps it up to date with empowering quotes that remind you never to give up on your dreams. Richards photos usually involve him with his larger than life smile, coupled with a short caption or no caption at all. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there on Instagram in photo or video and just make sure you experiment with different camera effects, Instagram filters and especially lighting as I explain in my earlier post 6 Simple Hacks To Make your iPhone Instagram Look Professionally Photoshopped.

There’s nothing better than exploring the great big world we live in. For the days that we can’t, well, there’s Instagram morning, noon and night waiting for your next day dream!
This account is one of our fastest growing InstaWealth Growth System students (and one of my personal favourite). This account run by Derek who started his inspirational & motivational travel account only a couple months ago has quickly grown from 0 to over 68,000! As you can see from the variety of his posts, he covers all corners of “our spectacular earth” by using the highest quality photos that are bright, uplifting and paired with a short reflective motivational caption as well proper credits and tagging the photographer in the photo. Almost all photographers comment on his posts and thank them when he features one of their incredible photos. I highly recommend following this account to be inspired by stunning uplifting daily posts!
For Simone Bramante, storytelling and picture-taking are one and the same when combined in perfect harmony. Careful, this Instagram will give you a serious case of wanderlust.

This account shares real stories of real people across the city, the little glimpses into people’s big complex lives offering up stories that will give you a fresh new take on life.
As you can see use a storied or blogging approach in the captions of their posts. Some stories span multiple posts and as I explained in an earlier post Instagram Blogs Are Taking Over The Web for people who want to create a blog based on the photos or videos they post on Instagram. Even celebrities like The Rock are using Instagram to blog about their life and the things that motivate them.
This feed will make the word lovers out there happy. It will make most people happy, too, considering it’s called Happsters. You’ll feel a little burst of sunshine when you follow them and get your daily dose of inspiration from the motivational quotes. One the fastest ways to help grow any Instagram account in any niche is to always reinforce positivity and motivation in your captions. This doesn’t have to be every single post, but you should incorporate a positive uplifting theme among your posts. People love to be inspired and motivated, so give them a real reason to crave your posts and engage with likes & comments.

Inspiration: For The Jet Set Lifestyle
ClubJetSet is another one of my successful students Inspirational Instagram accounts that was started less than 3 months ago and has gone from 0 to 80,000 followers with INSANE engagement per post. What is this students secrets to growing the fastest private jet page on Instagram? For starters this student loves private jets and luxury living and chooses to surround himself with this positive imagery to keep him motivated as he grinds through his various projects in life. He is leveraging my Instagram Strategies perfectly and as a result, well you can see by the likes and comments on each photo not to mention his 80,000 followers in less than 3 months that he is killing it on his first Instagram account! His photos are bright, high resolution and feature professional, amateur and company photos from various private jet companies around the world. He couples this motivational luxury lifestyle with varied captions that have call to actions to “tag a travel partner” and sometimes provide inspirational quotes to further ensure his followers are liking his posts and leaving comments, all of which contribute to his photos hitting the explore page thus delivering an influx of new followers!
TIP: My student is also giving proper credits on all his photos, which in many posts, have the jet companies or the photographers commenting and thanking him for featuring their photo not to mention giving them proper credits in the caption and tagging them in the photo. This is extremely important and helps you get the attention of the companies in your space. I can guarantee you that this account will be able to monetize very nicely in the upcoming months when this student decides his account is ready to be monetized. For now he is solely focusing on growing his account to his first MAJOR milestone of 100,000 followers.
