With more than 300 million users, Instagram is now the world's no.1 image and video sharing platform that offers a significant opportunity for businesses to reach to more number of users without having to invest in paid ad space.
Online marketers are desperately trying to solidify their presence on Instagram and explore its potential to reach to more prospective customers. One of their primary objectives is to gain more and more Instagram followers, and here in this article, we will discuss some organic ways to enhance Instagram likes and followers.
Consistency is a key ingredient in Instagram marketing. You need to be consistent in posting updates. Marketers believe in posting once per day or three to four times a week on an average. However, the most successful accounts may post more frequently. Choose an appropriate frequency that you can effectively maintain. You should never post too often or too rarely. Try to strike a balance.
Once you start to get responses for your posts, make sure that you respond in no time to increase engagement. You may also need to search for methods to efficiently engage with others who frequently post content that is relevant to your business. Search for content with hashtags that match your brand, business or product. This way you can find similar accounts to follow. Here are some tips that will get you started.
If you maintain accounts on various platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat, you need to let your followers on those platforms know that you are also on Instagram. Share your Instagram page details through other social channels for people to find you easily.
To do it effectively, you can take a screenshot of the Instagram account and share it on the Facebook feeds of your friends and followers by linking it to the page. You can also tweet updates whenever you post something new on the Instagram page.
You can consider emojis as the universal language of communication on social networking platforms like Instagram. Research shows that more than 50% of all the captions and comments on Instagram posts include emojis.
The advantage of Instagram is that emojis are also searchable on this platform along with hashtag and username. People can find your posts based the unique emojis that you have used. If you are a writer, include the emoji of a pen, and those who are searching for writers can easily get you at one click using that emoji. Similarly, a photographer can use the emoji of a camera when posting updates.
Using correct hashtags may expose your posts to a huge number of targeted followers. There is the possibility of adding up to 30 hashtags in a single post. However, experts believe that interactions are higher on Instagram posts that have around 11+ hashtags.
Now you can also use Hashtagify to identify hashtags that are more related to your business. All you have to do is enter the primary hashtag from a popular post and run a search to find out which all ideal hashtag you can add to your post for getting new traffic.
You can also search on Instagram to find which hashtags others are using for their posts. While doing this, do not simply copy and paste the string of hashtags. Rather stay relevant to the particular hashtags that are relevant to your business and audience to get real Instagram likes.
Compared to the other social media platforms, getting more followers and likes on Instagram is much easier. Strategize the ways through which you engage your followers on Instagram. When you help other people, you can get the returns.
