Gain Lot of Followers on Instagram, Follow this Tricks
1. Connect it to Other Social Media Accounts.
This technique will help your friends “discover” you as an Instagram user and instantly start following you. Obviously, this is the first thing you should be doing when you sign up, but you can also do it afterward. If some new Facebook friend decides to join Instagram too, you’ll know where to find them.
2. Connect with the Right People.
While you’ve probably already connected with family and friends, the next step is to identify some Instagram accounts connected to your target audience. This could be galleries, interior designers, art consultants, fellow artists, artist organizations, etc.
The first step? Start following them. If they follow you back, great! But that’s not where the story ends.
Step two: slowly but consistently start liking and commenting on their latest posts. Be complimentary or pose questions, but always be insightful. There’s nothing worse than an Insta user clearly using you for their own gain.
The goal is to be social as possible so that these accounts (and the ones following them) see your comments and are impressed enough to check you out. You’ll not only spark curiosity about your own page, but you’ll begin to build relationships. And, these interactions will make them want to engage with your posts as well.
3. Using Hashtags in Instagram Stories.
Hashtagging on Instagram posts are a given, but you should also be using hashtags in your Stories for the chance to be seen by users who follow that specific hashtag.
You can use Hashtag Stickers (which can be found in the Stickers menu when creating a Story) or just hashtag directly in your captions for a chance to be featured in a Hashtag Story. Now that users can follow hashtags, your Stories have a chance to be seen by both people who are following that hashtag and anyone who’s just checking it out.
4. Have a Unique Hook.
Sorry to break this to you: no-one really cares about your shots of slightly off-kilter buildings or pics of your dinner. Even your friends only like them so you'll carry on liking their similarly boring snaps. To get ahead what you need is an angle.
Upscaling Primark gear so it looks like catwalk fodder? An account for your 2-week-old pug? Or one dedicated to pictures of Shia LaBeouf sitting on toilets? All of these are potential winners, especially if you want to reach a circle outside of your friends. The ideal scenario is that your Instagram disciples will know a photo is yours because they recognize your style. They know you make £3 Primani sweaters look fierce, that Dibble the dog loves tummy rubs. Or that you're the weirdo with the LaBeouf obsession.
5. Join Instagram Engagement Groups.
Are you just starting to learn how to get followers on Instagram? This tactic is best for beginners. Some Instagram newbies have seen their Instagram followers increase fast. What did they do differently? They joined engagement groups.
While it can be tempting to join the biggest Instagram engagement groups, the truth is you’ll get a more targeted list of Instagram followers by sticking to your niche. You can find engagement groups for travel, beauty, fashion and more.
In these groups, you can get followers and likes from people who have shared interests. But if you’re serious about getting the attention, you should also return the favor by following fan pages for people who join the group. I’ve had friends get 2,000 new followers in only a couple weeks using this strategy.
While it might not help with immediate sales, it helps you gain credibility early on so your Instagram page doesn’t show that you only have 38 followers. This is more of a short-term strategy for your first few weeks on Instagram, not a long-term one for getting Instagram followers.
6. Follow People or Like their Photos.
One of the most obvious ways to get people’s attention is by doing them a service: following them or liking their photos. According to Neil, for every one hundred likes he did on random photos, he generated 21.7 likes on his photos and got 6.1 more Instagram followers.
As per his experience, you don’t even have to follow people to get this response.
However, if you don’t mind taking it up a notch to garner a response, there’s no harm in following random people around and waiting for them to follow you back. By following other people, you stimulate curiosity within a user and (more often than not) lead them to your own profile. If this user likes what they see on your Instagram profile, there’s a high chance they’ll follow you back.
You don’t have to worry about having too many “followings” before you can actually get a significant amount of “followers” for yourself. A simple solution to filtering out people who didn’t follow you back is to use apps like Instafollow to track who unfollowed you, isn’t following you back, lost Instagram followers, mutual friends, etc.
7. Post in Instagram Facebook Groups.
You’ve probably never thought that you can get Instagram followers for free through Facebook? But we are happy to say that you totally can!
There are a whole bunch of Instagram-focused Facebook groups (and even groups with specific themes like Travel Instagram accounts) that you can join. Use these groups to meet others on Instagram with a similar niche to you.
You can make new friends, gain a bunch of new Instagram followers for free. You can even gain the support of other Instagrammers anytime you have an Instagram marketing question.
Go to the search bar on Facebook or search through Groups. Use the term “Instagram” or “Instagram Pod” and you’re sure to find a great group to join.
8. Post on Instagram at the Right Times.
Beyond adding the appropriate hashtags and using the best filters, you should also be considering the timing of your posts.
A targeted approach is to analyze what has and has not worked for you in the past. By visiting IconoSquare’s optimization section, you can get a detailed analysis of your posting history vs. engagement. This report will also highlight the best times of the day and days of the week to post.
The dark circles indicate when you usually post media. The light gray circles show when your community has been interacting. The biggest light gray circles represent the best times for you to post.
