Effective ways on how to increase your Instagram followers
Tip#1: Do you have a branded and complete Instagram profile?
Your Instagram profile is as important as your homepage. So make it a goal to create a great impression and entice people to hit the “follow” button.
When someone visits your Instagram profile, they have a split second to decided if they will follow your business. They will make this decision by quickly scrolling your feed, clicking on your story highlights, and/or reading your bio.
In order to convert your visitors into followers, you’ll need more than just great photos, but consistency in posting. Do you have a great Instagram profile photo? If you don’t consider having professional pictures taken. An excellent Instagram bio, active stories, and coordinating cover photos all make a great profile.
Tip#2: Are you using hashtags in your Instagram post?
Look, of course posting new, interesting and engaging photos will help your IG account to grow. However, do you really want to know the secret to gain followers? Hashtagging your photos is extremely important. When you hashtag your photos, you make it easy for people to find your photos. That makes it easy for them to find you! This means searching for specific terms.
Like with Twitter, Facebook, and other social sites. Users on Instagram use certain hashtags over others. So, if you use the right hashtag within your photos, there is a greater chance to reach new users and be discovered.
Tip#3: Are you approaching popular users to collaborate?
The power of collaboration for your business is huge.
Team up with a mutual minded business. It is a way for brands to be introduced to your profile and engage with audiences you may never have reached before. Ask another Instagrammer in your niche if you can take over their account. Even for just a day as a guest contributor. This can dramatically grow your following fast. Think of fun, unique and creative ways to collaborate with other users.
Tip#4: Find the influencer in your niche and engage!
You can visit the profiles of each person you have identified as an influencer in your niche. “Turn your notification on” to be notified every time they share new content. You may interact with them consistently and become a regular in their comments section. You can use services like Upmyinfluence.com to coach you through the process of becoming an influencer.
