Strategies for fast Instagram growth?

by John Abramyan 28 replies
Hi, Due to all the Instagram craze, we have been trying to grow our Instagram followers for some time now but have not made a lot of progress.

Organic growth is almost impossible and we have tried the following:
- Using Hash Tags (which did not result into too many followers, but a lot of likes mostly from non-local people, local hash tags fared worse)
- Following the followers of other businesses (this was good, but eventually Instagram limits how many you can follow, then we used a program to unfollow some and follow again, not something you can do a lot)

We tried other software out there like Crowd Fire and etc, but they got banned by Instagram. I was wondering, what tool or program can I use to grow our followers that has proven to work for you. Or what strategies. Thank you.

    Take out "fast" Jonathan, to remove fear-based drivers, because you only want fast growth for some fear-based reason

    Replace with "slow", then Like other updates related to your niche, comment on those updates, make a bunch of buddies on Instagram through this generosity, they do the same for you, and then you will have your slow, steady and ever-increasing growth.

    Good things take time.

    Don't get fixated on fast, that will sink you. Focus on content that people want to see.

    Hi John,

    There is a gal on this forum that has some great info on instagram marketing, you'll find her using the search function on top of this page (advanced search).

    Search by member post. Her warrior id is: davntt

    Click one of the search results and if you need to find her faster use the "Ctrl +F" function (asuming your using chrome), follow her profile and you'll find some great info.

    Instagram updated it's algorithm recently and it's killed my reach, which is really annoying. You can try using instagram ads, and ask for shout outs from accounts like your own.

    Instagram organic growth is still good. Why not require users to use a tag YOU SPECIFY on their post in order to receive a shoutout or get an incentive from your page?

    you have to know how to attract users. i may have to do a video on this method.

    we have used this technique to grow a fresh page to 12k followers organically..hashtag has been used over 30k times.. CPA commissions steady..highly engaged.

    It is not impossible it just take some time and a lot of effort including strategies. Learn from top Instagram business accounts. Analyze how do you think they got a huge following. Continue what you are doing and most especially experiment on your strategies, you'll get it somehow.

    Instagram is really an excellent social networking site.
    I think, following other users and sharing are the two most important issues.
    Share more and more, follow your relevant users.
    Thanks.

    Timing is everything! Post at an ideal time of the day. Your captions need to captivate your followers, allowing them to be inspired by it. You also have to connect with your followers. Ask them questions and reply if they have any comment. This will help you build a relationship with them. Venture out of your feed and look for accounts related to your niche. Like, comment and follow those accounts as well. Instagram growth is not just about building, but also nurturing your followers.

  • First, tag your friends of your post
    and Write down hashtags in your post like this #insta #instamag
    it is a way to get more followers and get more likes on your post
    it is a slow process but it is an effective way
    Or you can buy followers for instagram

    Try to Grow your Instagram account manually...because using automation tool is faster but it is not a proper way..

    Maybe it's time to try new hashtags. Make them highly targeted towards your market. It sounds like you may be using more general hashtags.

    Another strategy is to actually go through and like posts from your target market and comment on them. Just don't make the comments generic. If you cannot add to the post, don't bother. Make sure you have something more to say than just adding a couple of emojis.

    I agree with Ryan, too. FAST isn't the way to go with social media. Organic and long-term is the way to go. You're building a community and your community should be incredibly well targeted or it doesn't matter how many followers you have.

    Hope this helps!

    Do you have a local business? If you have a brick and mortar biz, pair instagram promotions with local incentives.

    I've seen local shwarma and kebab shops and burger joints pull this off successfully.

    You want LOCAL people who have TRIED your stuff get other LOCALS excited about your stuff.

    Localized incentives is the way... Unless you're going to do a LOCATION-based search of IG to do a like bait campaign. This is too time-intensive and too expensive.
