Some of the mistakes you should avoid include:


1) Uploading too many pictures on your post in a span of 2 minutes. This will provoke your followers since you will be spamming their news feed.


2) Stealing content from other Instagram users profiles or searching online for pictures and uploading it as your own. You should give attribution to the real owners.


3) Uploading pictures and videos of low quality to your news feed.


4) Using offensive language or negative comments on Instagram users post. You will get a lot of criticism from other users which will create a bad image for your business brand.


5) Ignoring your followers comments. You need to interact with your followers as often as you can to develop a mutual relationship with them.


6) Giving out your personal numbers and address to strangers on Instagram. You should be cautious of whom you give it to.


7) Taking sides when it comes to political issues. As a business brand, your post needs to be neutral regarding political issues so you won't offend quite a few of your followers whose opinion differs from yours.


8) Paying for services to get more likes and followers. Instead of using such services, you should improve on your content marketing strategy to make your social presence more appealing and prominent.
