IG Marketing has not garnered results.

14 replies
I have been building an IG channel for several months and producing high quality content, all customized work I do in Photoshop. My follow count is really low, and I find it hard to believe in this theory about content catching on. Some people I know gained 40-50K followers in less than a year, and when they first began rapidly reached 7-10K a month. It was definitely not viral or organic.
Does anyone have a good recommendation on how to proceed with increasing my following, which paid companies work best, I want the highest quality and not junk accounts. Thanks.

    There are some good FaceBook Groups on growing IG followers, I recommend asking there.

    without seeing your content the answer is no. You say your work is high quality, but is it follow worthy?

    Yes for the niche it is good. I have run this by several people who say my content is better. They believe most of their followers are fake, however they are followed by popular accounts. So I really do not believe content is king, it has something to do with the paid route.

      Creating content is one thing.. BUT are you actively engaging on higher profile accounts? It is called SOCIAL media for a reason. you cant sit on your own little feed and pump content and expect the masses to find you... you have to get out and leave links IE comments and likes etc that can be followed.

      Im not suggesting actual links to your page.. just the little link that is your user name when doing this stuff.. people WILL click on it.. People WILL find you. And PLEASE stay away from bots.. that's just silly If your content is worthy of likes and follows it will come with a little work of you getting out and dropping your name on relevant feeds

      Best of Luck

    my experience is IG is more than 50% bots

  • Get an Insta Bot I would suggest to go for either Followliker or FollowPlanner. Let it work daily to increase followers/followings and you focus on creating quality content.

    You can also try some powerlikes in your niche they can help you get in featured.

    I've personally found that Instagram has been pretty good for site views and gaining attention.

    Hello,

    I just posted this in another thread and think it might help with growing your account.

    It's called the "$1.80 Instagram Strategy" by Gary V... check it out here:

    Good luck with growing your account

      Yup, completely agree with the $1.80 or $3.60 strategy. I love what Gary V has done for the game and happy your link wasn't removed!

      Content is so very important, but once the content is out there, you gotta engage with the community! Otherwise, you're just a content producing bot.

      Sounds like you're closer than you think from the tipping point. Don't give in to bots.

      Keep us posted!

    Try posting more post on your Instagram page, it will give you more followers beside try advertising your Instagram pages on Facebook and other social media.

    Refrain from using bots to build your IG account, instead focus on gaining quality followers instead - I'd recommend using methods such as shoutouts (influencers or related accounts) to grow your account.

    Good luck!

    Continue to post quality stuff (3 times a day for example), interact - like and comment on posts from your followers, people you follow and posts in explore feed. Research the best hashtags (see which hashtags other popular accounts similar as yours use). In combo with this use Fuelgram's fuelgroups (likes and comments from niche-related Instagram influencers).

    Forget the content.. I mean keep creating great content.. but its NOT the content that gets you followers. You are talking about a SOCIAL platform. you have to be SOCIAL. goto other like minded pages and COMMENT, and follow if so inclined.. but not really necessary. do this 90 to 100 times a day.. EVERYDAY.

    With each and every one of those comments you will leave your IG name that is a link back to your IG Feed. PEOPLE WILL CLICK ON IT. multiply that by 90 times a day 7 days a week that is 630 links pointing towards your feed that YOU will have created. do that for a YEAR and all the sudden you have 32,760 links to your IG feed.

    Forget paying to do this.. forget software.. and forget junk accounts.. do it yourself 2 hours a day for the next year for the next 3 years No junk accounts no fake follows its ALL organic and it WORKS every single time. JUST DO THE WORK
