(Scroll down a little further if you would just like to read my tips and tricks)

Firstly I would just like to say the biggest thank-you to everyone who follows me. It means the absolute world to me and I will always be grateful for every single one of you!

I originally joined the WHI community in 2013, as a recommendation from a friend. And it very quickly became my absolute favorite social media platform. I loved the idea of being able to heart photos and putting them into albums that you would be able to look back at any time I wanted to.

It took me a couple of years to get to 2,000 followers, and I have always been so blown away about the fact that people would actually want to follow me. And I still am continually blown away!

1. Have a pleasing profile

A major tip is to have a visually pleasing profile because it will be the first thing everyone will see when they click onto your profile!

You can do this by finding a cool profile picture or even using one of your own.

Also, your highlight photos that will appear on the app are important too. To make these appealing and aesthetic I suggest making a collection solely for the purpose of having them as 'highlight images'. You can change your preferences of the collection you use for your profile under 'highlights' in settings.

2. Have a range of collections

By having a wider range of collections you can cater for a wider range of people. It also gives the follower a chance to choose which collections of yours interests them the most.

Example:

3. Have a good profile picture

Your profile picture will be one of the first things people notice about your profile (as well as your username). Set it to something that captures peoples attention and makes them want to have a little scroll through your profile.

Examples of good profile pictures:

4. Write a capturing bio

Bios should be kept short and sweet, not an entire paragraph. This can be achieved by using your favorite quote, saying or joke. It is also effective to say a couple of things about yourself.

5. Post regularly

By staying active more people will want to follow you, if you only post once a month then people will probably exit the profile solely for the purpose of it not being updated enough

6. Use Tags

If you use tags then your posts can be easily found and there is more of a chance of it actually being seen and liked by other users. Also if your tags are relatable to others you will get more followers.

7. Be Original

If you are original you have a greater chance of people noticing your profile. If you do the exact same thing as everyone else it can become so repetitive and also it won't be as exciting for the user who is scrolling through their discover page.

8. Be Patient

Getting thousands of followers definitely doesn't happen overnight. It took me 6 years to get 200k followers, and my profile only started getting more attention this year. If you are original and persistent with your posts then you are more likely to be noticed.

9. Write Articles

Writing articles is a relatively new addition to the WHI platform and it is such a good tool for reaching a wider audience. You can express more than a photo and you can be so creative with it. You can write about anything! Whether it is a poem, advice, reviews or your home routines.

Examples:

10. Have fun

Don't take it too seriously, we are all here to enjoy all the creativity and love that is shared amongst this community. Don't get too caught up in getting followers, because they will most likely come when you least expect it.
