Instagram has become one of the most used social media applications today. Not only is it used to stay connected with people, share photos, and other related content, it is now also used to promote your business and engage with a potential set of customers to ensure sales in the near future. Organizations have now turned their attention towards Instagram with the aim of efficiently and effectively promoting their products and services online. There is no denying the fact that online buying and selling has now become very common, and to cope up with the competition, it has become essential that the social media teams of these firms stay fully active on platforms like Instagram.
The main aim of every user on Instagram is to increase their followers. With this, not only will the engagement increase, but the chances of ensuring online sales also become high. Instagrammers have tried to use various tactics and techniques to get more followers. While some followers opt for ‘fake followers’ and ‘fake bots,’ working towards getting more organic followers is the better way to go about things as this improves the overall reputation of the account. Having more fake followers makes the account doubtful, and this way, the real potential followers tend to stay away.
To get more real followers on your Instagram account, here are a few tips that will secure more business in the short and long term.
Post Content Regularly
By posting content regularly, brands flourish greatly. To adapt to Instagram’s algorithmic timeline, you have to be consistent so that your posts appear at the top of the schedule and have a higher chance of being seen by your followers. Moreover, through the regular sharing of posts and with people engaging those posts, for instance, by liking them, it is possible that Instagram’s algorithm may place the posts near the top of the feeds of people who are following you.
Engage Audience via Live Videos
The other technique of getting more organic followers is to make sure that you and your account are as engaging as possible. One of the main ways through which you can engage your audience is through live video sessions. These sessions are aired live on your story and appear on your follower’s feed. You can engage the audience by asking questions related to your content. The followers then provide feedback by replying in the comment section. This process of questioning and answering makes the audience more engaged.
Use Appropriate Hashtags
One way to engage with potential followers is to use high quality and appropriate hashtags. The right hashtags have the potential to expose your content to a wide amount of target followers. Instagram allows a maximum of 30 hashtags per post. However, if you use the right ones, even 5 to 6 can be very useful.
Collaborate with Social Influencers
Influencers are people with a high following on Instagram. They have very loyal customers who usually follow their content religiously by collaborating with the right people your account can also get more loyal followers.
