I have a confession, and it’s a pretty sizable one. When it comes to Instagram, my admission will be giving you the two tricks on how to gain more Instagram followers, not only to gain more but to gain them fast. Be aware this is a time-consuming task; but, if done right, your rewards will be endless.
Trick 1: Mass Follow and Unfollow
Mass following is significant for growing your account, and benefits for this can be seen extremely fast. However, there is a correct way to do this and an incorrect way. The method that you want to use and always remember is “The Niche Method.” Always keep in mind what the niche of your profile is and mass follow an account with a high following and much engagement that is similar to yours.
For example, if you are a teen artist and are wanting to gain a large following, then you are going to want to go to someone’s account like @Jacobsartorius. His engagement is very active, and this is what you want. Go to his last post and begin to follow everyone who liked the photo. Here is where you will be able to gain a large following quickly but remember that you will at some point need to unfollow everyone who you followed in the next couple of days.
That in itself can be a daunting task so there are services for this kind of stuff that will do all of the work for you; but, unfortunately, you do have to pay for them. Now, I am not saying you should go and use these services, but it does help take the load off if you are occupied with other things and growing your other platforms. It also gives you the ability to focus on your content, because – remember – content is critical.
Trick 2: Post Every Day in Peak Posting Times
This is something that is very crucial that many people will overlook. They wonder why their posts do not get any engagement. It comes back to what time they made their post. Peak times are super important when it comes to Instagram. Make sure you have a set schedule on what days and times your post will go out to make sure it gets the most eyeballs it possibly can. To throw in this as well, make sure your hashtags are relevant to what your niche is and what you are posting about. This goes hand in hand when it comes to posting at those peak times.
With these two tricks, you will be able to increase your Instagram following, generate more activity and engagement, and soon enough you will have such an immense audience that you will not need to perform these tasks. Your profile will grow on its own.Opinions expressed here by Contributors are their own.
