What self respecting cat wouldn’t want to be famous? Having a luxurious life of being totally spoiled, being admired by famous and cat-mad humans as well as being envied by other cats, the list goes on! Sounds purrfect doesn’t it?
Well to become famous on Instagram or Twitter (or any social media platform you purrfer) is just not something you set yourself out to do – or is it?
Instagram is one of the hottest social media platforms out there. A lot of marketeers say that Instagram is the best place to engage with your audience. That being said there is still fame to be had over on Twitter especially with some well-chosen, cute photos, witty remarks and aggressive self-promotion, which will get you very far!
However, we never said amassing followers and creating new opportunities to be showered with treats was an easy task. On the contrary, doing so requires your human to craft a captivating profile, follow others and engage with followers, and constantly post tweets that are actually worthwhile.
So in order you help you out, we asked five popular and up and coming cats on Instagram and Twitter for the advice they would give to other cats wanting to become a successful social media cat.
