Strategies to increase Instagram followers!

24 replies
During this summer I´m going to carry out a little experiment with the objective to increase Instagram followers on the business account I'm managing. I´m going to try different strategies and explore what way that´ll be the most efficient one for this purpose.

Do you follow any specific strategies? Do you have any tips for increasing followers? Feel free to share and discuss! When I'm done with this "experiment" I'll share my experiences and learnings.

Cheers! / Lina

    I usually search the hashtag that relates to the profile and then I follow people using the same hashtag. I get a few followbacks with this method.

    Instagram is mainly used to build the visual identity of a business. There are many unique features of Instagram such as Instagram Shop fronts, Geofilters, Instagram Ads and Instagram Analytics. If you learn about these tools and use them properly, that will be the best strategy. Some of the top strategies are focusing on the unique qualities of your brand's audience, telling a story with your caption and so on. They have also mentioned collaborating with popular influencers or micro-influencers of your niche is one more great strategy and have also explained in details how to conduct it. I have implement them and its pretty helpful. You can surely try these Instagram strategies.

    Have you ever heard of "timing is key"? Upload posts at a particular time (when your followers are usually active/awake).

    There are a few things that can help you increase followers, but please refrain from using bots. You can join groups in FB who helps each other as they go liking your post and follow you. These are real people. You can also do a collaboration in which someone with a higher audience reach do a shout out for you. You can also utilize marketing platforms like phlanx to find someone to do collabs with.

    If I've learned something from my 5 years on Instagram, it is that engaging is key!

    Before I started out, I had no idea about the importance of it, but I cannot express how important it is, too much!

    By engaging with your target audience, you make people aware of your page's existence, and if you're engaged with those who are interested in what your page is sharing, then there's a big chance they will start to follow you.

    Be sure to use at least 3-4 really popular hashtags that are relevant to the post. For instance, if you are a food blogger, you could use popular hashtags such as #food porn #foodgasm #eatingfortheinsta #food blog then go for some more specific hashtags. If the image is of pizza, you could use #pizza love or make it interesting with #whowantspizza #pizzatime or #pizzaishappiness

    I'd recommend creating content with hashtags related to your niche, and then boosting your posts into top posts.

    This will get you targeted followers that are interested in the type of content that you create...
