5 Simple tips on how to get followers on Instagram



Techniques on how to help grow & keep a fantastic following.

Use Hashtags

Using hashtags effectively is the first place to start in your quest for more Instagram followers and likes.

Adding tags to your photos allows you to extend your reach beyond your existing following and get more exposure. Your tags should be relevant and specific. By making your tags relevant and specific you improve your chances of connecting with like minded people and getting real organic Instagram followers..

Post Regularly

Don’t let your account go idle for too long. Regularly posting new content will ensure your followers don’t forget who you are and will keep your feed interesting and dynamic.

Don’t however post multiple pictures in a row. Cluttering your followers feeds is a good way to lose followers. I would recommend posting no more than once every 5 hours.

Ensure Quality Content

This one may sound a little obvious but posting quality content is probably the most important thing when it comes to getting Instagram followers and likes. Take a minute to make sure you have just the right photo for the occasion. Think about what you are trying to convey and keep your images in line with that.

Engage With Your Followers

Engaging with your followers is a good way to build a relationship with your followers, get more likes on your images and to retain your existing following. Responding to any questions asked on your images is a great way to keep your followers engaged. Engaging with your followers also helps show your account onto their followers accounts. Think of it as an organic way to get real Instagram followers and likes.

Connect Your Other Social Media Channels

Connecting your Instagram and Facebook will allow you to post your content to both platforms and allow you to drive your Facebook following to Instagram and vice versa. You can share links to your Instagram page from your other platforms to drive more traffic also.
