To find success on IGTV you need to engage your audience with captivating content and visuals that maintains their attention.
1. Attractive & Quality Visuals
High quality is the best quality. Viewers will not want to watch a video that is glitching and pixelated. Upload videos that will keep audiences tuned for the entirety of the video.
Uploading videos to IGTV needs to be consistent. Once you begin showcasing your channel viewers will look for occurring videos. Don't leave your followers without video updates and no notice.
3. Have a Good Story To Tell
Would you want to watch a show that has no story, no plot? Find out what your audience likes, their hobbies, their interests, and portray that in the video. Shape your videos for the followers that you have. Good content is what attracts followers.
