Instagram has helped many of us curate content and promote our businesses or brands effectively. It has also helped influencers and bloggers to elevate their promotions and brand entities. Now, another interesting niche created by Instagram is gradually getting popular. Known as the Bookstagram community, it is fast catching the savvy of Indians now though it has been around for a while in the West.

A platform for people to showcase their love for books and also post creative pictures of their collection, Bookstagram is no less than heaven in paradise for the bibliophiles out there. People are utilising the platform creatively by using various templates, quirky GIFs, posting both short and long reviews and fascinating photos of books.

 

 

Bookstagram gives you the creative liberty to post what you wish to. You could use it as an online journal, a digital book review platform, a book blogging space or even just to share your reading habits, your current read details, or even post pictures of books by creating and posting aesthetic snaps!

The platform is also being utilised to post new launches and to persuade people to read. Once the Covid-19 era ends, it may just help increase footfall of bookstores. The bookstagramming community has put social media and this platform to best use to instill reading habit among people. Being a quick and short way to interact with the audiences, it is a treat for the eyes in a literal sense, not only for the book lovers but also for the non-readers. Bookstagrammers’ innovative and alluring posts can easily persuade the non-reading population to give a shot at reading books too. This digital literary world is no less than a virtual book club or library for the like-minded to connect, discuss and engage.

To be a successful Bookstagrammer, you need time, patience and efforts to curate content, increase engagement and connect with the target audience.
