How can I gain more followers and likes on Instagram?

18 replies
Hello and good day to you all. I am new to internet marketing. Specifically, Instagram marketing. A few contacts helped me get a job as the runner for an Instagram page from a small company. I am following a lot of small/big businesses and have so far amassed 5 new followers. If you could provide any tips on how to expand the company's Instagram reach, I would greatly appreciate it.

  • Do you happen to have any money to spend on paid advertising? I can recommend some websites and people that can help get your name out there.

    Udimi and trafficforme are both great websites that you should check out if you want to try paid advertising. I've used them myself and have had great results. Also just being active daily will help you gain followers. Make engaging and valuable posts. Tag people in your posts as well. Get people engaged and talking about you and what you have to offer.

      Both great networks.

      The only thing is that they will need to track results from each vendor. Some vendors on Udimi and not so good and others are great.

      Plus, these networks are for BIZ OPPORTUNITY seekers only.

    There is no rule axed in stone because the same strategy that works for me might not work for you . Posting valuable content is a good way to get engagement but ofcourse you will have to experiment with subjects and different content formulas .I think it would help if you made genuine contributions by engaging on other peoples post as well.You can experiment with polls charts and run contest as well.

    If you don't want to go for the paid advertisement, then creating an engaging content for the audience is the best method to attract the followers. If someone found something really valuable on your insta account, then definitely share it with his/her friends or suggest others to follow. So, engaging videos and images are the key to attract the instagram followers! Good luck!

    Hi there,

    Just create more and more content.

    You also don't say how long you've been managing the account. It can take a year or more to develop any real following.

    All the best,

    SashaLee

    Try creating a post where you run a contest to win something of value. Rules to enter might be:

    1. Share this post
    2. Comment below

    Not everyone will do both but the more people do #1, the more reach you'll get.

    If you want to gain followers you need to post quality content and use the top 25 hashtags pertaining to your niche. 1 to 2 posts a day with the proper hashtags will slowly gain followers who want to see what you will post next.

      I don't know about using the top 20. You'll get buried by verified accounts, etc. if you're using hashtags that have been used a million times.

    Posting daily contents and boosting your post will get you more followers and also using the correct hashtags will also do the same as lots of instagramers follow hashtags and boosted post as well as correct hashtags will boost the post and your page quickly. Male sure to use hashtags related to the post as much as you can. And contact some local influencers to help the boost if it is necessary.

    First of all, well done for feeling motivated and wanting to see growth! We are working on the same with Instagram but I have to tell you it takes a lot of time and effort. I suggest you make a plan. What is it you are posting? When? To what audience?

    You need to remember its not always about likes/followers. You need to engage with those in a similar niche as well as on big brands. This creates recognition as well as ticking off a few algorithm boxes. Spend time supporting, commenting, and sparking up conversations with other accounts. This will bring you more results than you think. Make sure you are utilising stories as they are powerful and often seen more than your actual posts. They have interactive features such as polls, Q&A and a lot more. Once you start to do all of the organic methods you could try using paid ads.

    Make a plan and monitor the progress. This will help you identify if its working and what you need to change. Repeat this and stay consistent as that's how people see you and invest more time on your page. You do not want to seem half bothered. Good luck!

    What I have experienced is that you have to establish your identity first and that you can do by creating engaging posts, connecting with influential instagrammers, commenting on their posts to get recognized and gradually inviting them to your account/product. This takes some time though.
