Google+Take part in trending topics, join and contribute to relevant communities, reply and plus one to comments, use 800x600 px pictures, mention big brands.
Rule of third - Putting the subject of the photo in only two thirds of the screen makes it more attractive to the eye.
Captions - Use relevant photo captions to grab the attention of people and include questions to drive comments.
Use hashtags - There's always some random hashtags that come round once a week or so, so maybe be aware of them of you want to loads of engagement.
Reply - Engage with people who have commented on your photos to drive two way conversations. Keep the comments to a conversational level rather than pushing sales.
VineHashtags - Be Aware of popular hashtags such as loop and how-to to gain the most engagement, new users normally start at the hashtags.
Be still - Buy tripod. A Vine video with a shaky camera can be annoying and you'll lose the affect you're going for.
Infinite loop - Master the infinite loop (a video that will seamlessly loop forever). To achieve this, your final scene needs to flow back into your original scene.
Be wise - Don't rush creating your Vines! Even though you've only got 6 seconds to play with take your time and execute professionally, don't try and cram too much in. Remember you can't edit clips!
Find your style - People who've stood out on Vine are the ones who have their own style and nailed it. Think about what you love the most and portray it in 6 seconds.
Background noise - Possibly the hardest element to control but try to keep a steady hand and minimize the noise of where you're shooting.
