10 Tips on how to get instagram followers.

4:17:00 PM

If you’re just starting out on Instagram, posting photos can be pretty depressing. When all your excitement and hard work are met by nothing more than few likes from a handful of followers, it’s easy to get discouraged, even if you know the benefits of social media marketing, which are waiting if you can find success with your initiative.

Gaining followers and getting your voice out there can be quite hard. Often I get questions on how I manage to keep on gaining followers.( i actually have more than 19k and i am happy with that) Well I have to say that I am also struggling with gaining followers sometimes and of course I also hope to gain them faster and more efficient.

You hope that posting creative pictures with high quality and writing thoughtful captions are the way to success and of course this is what you have to do to get a good fan base with large engagement. However, posting nice pictures with smart captions isn’t always enough and with thousands of blogs popping up every day it seems to be hard to differentiate yourself from the crowd.

Nevertheless, as you implement the strategies below, keep in mind that there is no substitute for regularly posting engaging, creative and relevant images that your audience loves. Use the tips below liberally; just don’t forget that engagement should always be your underlying goal.

1. First of all, be consistent; Post photos at fixed time points on a regular basis. Research has shown that posting at 2pm, 5pm and 22pm are the most effective times to post a picture.

2. Secondly, complete your Bio, make clear who you are and what you do! People read this kind of information and will hit that follow button quicker if they see you’re not that spam kind of guy. Also if you have a website, paste the link in the form.

3.Use popular Hash tags, I guess you already knew about this one, but it’s proven that pictures with hashtags will get more likes than without them! Use popular hashtags as,  #love, #instagood, #cute #follow, … But also use nice hashtags related to your photo!

4. Promote your Instagram account on your other social media accounts and profiles. Tell people what they can expect once they’re following you (e.g., behind-the-scenes photos, sneak peeks, coupons, etc.)

5. A simple but time slaying trick to get followers is to like, comment and follow other people extensively. I also do this to attract people to my page and to get the numbers up (numbers are important, no one can deny that) but this doesn’t always result in an engaging audience.

6. Remember that quality beats quantity. Edit your account to leave only the best images. No one wants to follow someone with thousands of pointless images of food or other random shots.

7. Edit you pictures with professional programs like Photoshop and Lightroom. Don’t use the instagram filters too much, I personal love to use VSCO cam to edit my picture and to create a theme for my feed.

8. Ask other influencers to mention or tag your product. in case you are a blogger.  It helps a lot but sometimes you just have to be lucky they will mention you!

9. Upload Selfies but don’t overkill! For brands it’s interesting to upload backstage photos as well. People love to see things that are more personal and less professional, that explains how popular Snapchat became. So don’t be shy to show some more personal things!

10. And if none of these tips help and you’re really hopeless you can always buy your followers. But I would not recommend this because first of all they’re not real so it’s just a number and they won’t like your pictures. Second of it is not fair compared to other people or brands (they work with you), and finally Instagram deletes ghost followers regularly so eventually you will lose them again.
