Instagram is rapidly becoming the most popular social media platform in the world. Many businesses are focused on LinkedIn and Facebook, but Instagram is proving to be an important tool for online success. You’re already on the right track if you have an Instagram account and are posting photos. But that’s only half of it. It is important to gain more followers. Here are my top tips to increase your Instagram followers and here is an article about buying likes.
1. Stick to a passionate niche.
Instagram accounts that are most successful concentrate on a few niches and post only relevant content. You should find something you’re passionate about and then focus your efforts on that topic. Travel accounts are a great option if you love to travel and travel around the globe. Another area that you might be interested in is fitness. You will gain a loyal following if you stick to your niche and share authenticity and passion through your posts.
2. Nonstop posting epic content
You must post high-quality photos and videos every day if you want to build a large Instagram following. It is not enough to post once a week. It is important to post new content regularly and to ensure that it is of high quality and high resolution. As your account grows, I suggest posting at least once per day (every day), but you can eventually increase that to three to four times per day.
You should upgrade your equipment if your photos are not at least 1080×1080 pixels. To build your following and keep them happy, test which types of videos or photos get the best engagement.
It is important to try different options and find what works best. GIFs, or Cinemagraphs, are also very popular on Instagram.
You can ask permission to share photos from other accounts with large followings if you’re ever short on content. It is better than not posting any content, and it will help you build relationships with other accounts.
3. Captions must be captivating and motivating.
You can make a big difference with the right captions. Make sure you use them to your advantage. You need to decide if your niche requires a long caption or one that is short and storied. Then, be consistent with your messages. A caption should do four things. It must captivate, motivate and inspire, as well as give the user a sense of what it is like to live in your photo or video. Although it may seem cliché, sharing motivational content on social networks drives huge engagement. If you don’t motivate your followers every day, they will switch to another account.
Some people combine supporting hashtags with short captions to enhance their caption style. Others may use a more detailed approach. Consistency should be your main focus.
4. Use the correct emojis
Emojis are a very popular way to communicate via text and social media, regardless of your feelings about them. It is essential that you are familiar with how Emojis work. Emojis’s are often used as word substitutes. They also allow for expressive captions which resonate with people. Try substituting at least one word for each sentence using an Emoji that represents it. Your captions will begin to resonate on a deeper visual level with people.
Don’t go overboard. Emojis’s are a great way to inject some personality into your posts and make it more human. But they should not be the only way you communicate. Emojis can be used to replace words, evoke emotions and express emotions to your followers.
5. Do not over-post.
We discussed earlier how crucial consistency is for posting. Many people make the error of not posting enough. Some accounts make the error of posting too often, which can lead to people being turned off. You need to establish a frequency and keep it consistent. When you first start blogging, you should be posting between one and two posts each day. This is the ideal number. If you exceed this limit, you run the risk to overwhelm people. It is a good idea to start with two per day, and then spread them out by having one in the morning and one at bedtime.
You can add more posts to your account as you gain more followers and grow. For example, one more post each afternoon. This formula will help you decide how many posts you should be posting per day: 1 to 1000 followers, 1-2 posts per day. 1000-10,000, 2-3 posts per day, 10,000-50,000; three to four posts per day, 100,000-500,000; five to six posts per day, 500,000-1 million; eight to ten posts per day.
6. Use hashtags.
It is undoubtedly an important aspect of posting on Instagram. However, it is essential that you are able to use hashtags correctly and use the correcthashtags in your posts. Use strategic hashtags. Statistics and studies show that three to five hashtags are optimal for social media platforms.
Use descriptive hashtags to describe the photo or video. Don’t use irrelevant hashtags to reach more people.
To represent your post, I recommend using descriptive hashtags of two words. You could use #GreenApple or #HondaCivic to represent your post.
Contrary to popular belief, hashtags with millions of posts will not increase your chances of having your photo viewed. It will also result in fewer users. These two-word hashtags with fewer posts will allow you to get more photo views from people searching for the hashtag.
I recommend using 3 to 5 hashtags per caption.
7. Engage users.
It’s not enough to create an Instagram account and post photos and videos. Engage with your followers by asking them questions and responding to their answers. This will help you build stronger relationships with your followers. You will be more attractive to others who are interested in commenting on your photos if you encourage them to do so.
Engage on other accounts that have followers to help you get more followers. Leave useful comments on other accounts posts to help others see what you saw. This will encourage them to visit your page and follow you if you like their content.
Ask your followers questions about where they’re from and what they think of your content. To entice your followers to visit you, add positive comments to their accounts.
8. Build a positive community.
Positive attitude is the key to success in Instagram. You must create a positive community for your followers to share information and communicate with each other if you want to get a lot of followers.
You can ban or delete any content that is not appropriate for your account. This is a great way for you to encourage and display positive comments on all your posts. Do not let one negative comment become a slippery slope of verbally attacking another user. This must be monitored, as new users will not follow you if they see such posts.
It is important to cultivate and maintain a mature, peaceful account while still engaging with others in order to build connections with your early power users.
9. Influencers are worth paying
It is important to recognize that Instagram influencers are a major factor in who people follow. If you are looking to increase your followers and exposure, consider paying influencers. You should look for accounts that are large in size and have the users you desire. Post your photos and videos, along with a caption, to get more accounts that will promote you. Nearly every Instagram account has a contact email to advertise and promote.
10. Cross promote accounts that are similar.
Cross-promoting similar accounts is another great way to increase your Instagram followers. You can find similar Instagram accounts that are similar in size and have followers you want to attract to your account. Get in touch to see if you could help each other promote their accounts via shared shoutouts.
Remember that your page should be different from other pages of the same size. Cross-promotion is possible. If your target market includes males who enjoy sports, then you will find these followers on any account that is more male-dominated. Try different accounts to see which accounts are most helpful. It is important to build relationships and continue working with these pages.
