How to Increase Your Instagram Followers

Want to dramatically increase the number of people following you on Instagram? If so, follow these 22 proven methods to achieve this goal.

According to Search Engine magazine, the tips below will get you more followers on Instagram.

1. Take the time to revise your photos before publishing. They should be appropriate for the seasons, holidays and upcoming events. Depending on your type of activity, you can create posts several times a day or several times a week. Set a realistic goal and stick to it.

2. Post only high quality photos and videos to your profile.

3. Test different filters. The more creative, original, and engaging your photos are, the more likely people are to share and track your account.

4. Instagram business accounts have access to analytics that show when your audience is most active. Use this data to optimize your publishing schedule. Instagram also gives you information such as the age, gender, and location of your audience, which can also be useful for personal research.

5. Another way to attract people who are not following you is to tag linked accounts so that you appear on their broadcasts. Tag people who interact with your business.

6. Complete and optimize your Instagram bio so users know who you are and if they want to follow you. Update this information as needed.

7. Include a clear call to action or question at the end of each post to attract additional audiences.

8. Make sure your customers can find your Instagram account. To do this, add the Instagram icon to your social media or embed an Instagram profile on your website.

9. Share your Instagram content also on other social networks and ask your audience to do so. This will attract new subscribers to your profile.

10. Once the number of your subscribers increases, start running contests and promotions that can attract even more users.

11. Another good practice for growing your Instagram followers is to look at what your competitors are doing and learn from them.

12. Put like, and comment on the publications of other users. Chat with people who might potentially like your account. In practice, this means interacting with potential customers. The more you participate in comments and discussions, the more chance you will be noticed.

13. Don’t use too much text in your photos. People go to Instagram for visual content.

14. Do not add logos or watermarks to your posts that may obscure part of the photo.

15. Using the right hashtags will lead you to a new audience looking for content similar to yours. Take the time to find the best hashtags for your particular post.

16. Another way to find users who are not following you is to geotag your content, but not necessarily with the location of your store. Try using your city or a nearby (suitable) landmark that is in high demand.

17. Do not add links to your posts, because they will not become clickable and this is quite annoying for users.

18. If you’re selling a product, take advantage of the tagging feature on Instagram. Companies can tag photos or videos with product links. To use this feature, you must have a Facebook business page with a complete product catalog.

19. Create a branded hashtag for your events.

20. Periodically cleanse your posts of negative comments from competitors. 

21. Set aside advertising costs to promote your Instagram account. If you’re running a specific competition or marketing campaign, you can use Facebook ads to promote your content to a larger audience.

22. Confirmation is another way to stand out from the competition and show that your business is real. While not everyone can qualify for Instagram verification, you should aim for it.
