Five Simple Ways To Get Instagram Followers

Instagram has gained immense recognition in the past few years. Millions of photos are posted each day. This photo sharing application has turned out to be something miraculous. Loads of photographers and businesses are promoting their products through Instagram. However, to obtain the most out of it, you need more followers. What is the use of investing so much time in it when you are getting few likes on your posts from only a handful of followers? Keeping in mind the advantages of marketing through social media these days, here are discussed five simple ways to get free Instagram followers:

  1. 1. Engagement with other accounts
Increasing your involvement and engagement will automatically help you get more followers. The first way to engage is by liking random pictures. Users have found this strategy beneficial regarding followers. Like and comment on photographs of other users. You can even ask questions in captions of your images to maximise the engagement. Search for images which are hashtagged with ‘followforfollow’ and follow them to get a follow in return. Regularly find new users to follow and interact with them. Your interaction is directly proportional to the number of followers you get.

  1. 2. Promotion of your account
Everything in this world gains more visibility if promote in the right manner. If you want to get more followers on Instagram, you need to publicise your account through all means available to you. One easy way is promotion through other social media accounts. Connect your Instagram to other social media platforms like Facebook. This will help you to get the followers that are already following you on other platforms. You can even stimulate it through email subscribers. Link your Instagram accounts wherever you can to boost its visibility. Physical marketing can be done by publicising your account on sign boards, cars, etc.

  1. 3. Post quality with quantity
By quality here I mean posting creative and appealing photos to maximise the number of likes. And by quantity, I mean not posting each and every hour, but remain consistent. Follow a specific theme and target your audience. No one wants to follow an account with loads of pointless photos uploaded. Use filters to enhance the quality of your images. If you are running a business, you can upload the photographs of your product-making. If you are running a restaurant, you can post images of new cuisines in the food house. Furthermore, timings also matter a lot. Post on peak timings when the most users are active. Ensure that your photos show up in the user’s feed. Do not be afraid to post often.

  1. 4. Use relevant hashtags
Hashtags are of significant value in Instagram. Use photos that are related to your image, as well that are popular. This will enable you to increase your account's visibility hence more followers. You can even create a community using a hashtag.

  1. 5. Your bio must be complete
To get maximum followers, insert full bio. Include relevant hashtags as well.
