Even when it’s difficult to share online, understand that social media is your wife’s career. Work is difficult and stressful. Your cooperation can assist in creating a good workday.
- Celebrate your wife’s accomplishments
As with any career, you should celebrate your significant other’s milestones. For bloggers, these accomplishments could be new follower marks, a successful collaboration, or even just their strength against internet trolls. Take time to celebrate and recognize these milestones because they don’t have coworkers who will.
- Make friends with other Instagram husbands for support
There aren’t many people in the world who understand what it truly means to be an Instagram husband. Go on trips and events with your wife/significant other and get to know others in your position. Having a community to rely on makes every step easier!

- Understand your participation can assist in their growth
One of the special parts about being an influencer is the community you create online. Many of your followers begin to genuinely care about your life when you share every day. As an Instagram Husband, this means those followers also care about you. Understand that your involvement not only makes your wife happy but helps her followers get to know your family more.
- Get comfortable with the uncomfortable
For some, it may be uncomfortable to share some of the more private parts of your life online. However, most influencers share many personal stories with their followers because their entire life is displayed online. As a husband, you can support your wife by being open to uncomfortable situations and comforting her through them. Sometimes sharing your troubles can inspire others.
