How Can You Grow Your Instagram Fan Following?

/15 September, 2022 7:29 am

Instagram is undoubtedly a great channel to get more eyes on your brand from the targeted audience you want to sell your services to. Social media networks let people post interesting and engaging content and visuals with different filters and captions to grab the attention of audiences around the globe.

However, the success of the platform is measured by the number of followers you get for your official presence. One of the excellent ways to get more and more followers for your account is to follow others and hope they return the favor too. But you must now be wondering if it is possible to get private Instagram followers without following others – right?

Of course, yes! This article will help you know the main tactics you can follow to increase your Instagram followers organically, so let’s have a look at them in detail:

Post Regular Engaging Content

The idea of regular posting on your account sounds obvious, but most people for not prefer posting as much as they should. This lace of regular positing could be the one reason that could have major trouble building your loyal fan base. There is no doubt about this fact that the more you post, the more you get noticed by your audiences. People check it on Instagram 24/7, so it is very important for you to keep your profile busy always to grab your audiences’ attention.

The old content you have posted is likely to be less founded by people. Also, you need to remember that people do not search as much using hashtags as you think. This particular feature/function you can mostly see on Pinterest rather than on Instagram. The recent posts may get far more attention from your followers and the other visitors than your older posts.

The time and the schedule you make for your content upload also matter a lot. Most social media strategists have mentioned that Tuesday and Thursday evenings are the best time to make your posts live, but it does not mean that you should not post every day. This is something that can give you the best chance and way to connect with your ideal people as they get up in the morning, come back home after work, and check their social handles, most probably in the evening.

Drive Traffic Through Your Website

Your website is another best way to boost your Instagram followers without following others. For this particular reason, you need to add a simple button “Follow me on Instagram” to your website to encourage people to visit your social media handles as well who come over to your website.

However, you also need to remember that this tactic might take some time to pay you off, but it gives you some long-term results. Moreover, you can also further add a link to your Instagram account on other social media handles, like Twitter bio, Facebook, etc. The more you add links to your profiles, the more traffic you get, which ultimately enhances your fan following.

Add hashtags to your posts

Hashtags are a very good way to bring traffic to your official social media handles. This is because the things that become more popular and trending on the platform make it a hashtag out of it that everyone can add to their captions, stories, posts, and much more. For instance, if a hashtag “#business” has one million followers and by adding it to your public posts means that one million active users can see your posts.

Also, the more viewership you get, the more people come over your profile and opt to follow it if they find some interesting content out there. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to keep your profile updated and active all time with new and engaging content that can grab the attraction and attention of your targeted audiences.

Mention prominent influencers

Mentioning influencers in your posts is just similar to using the FLC, but it also takes a more targeted approach. For this reason, you need to do thorough research to collect a list of some biggest influencers who are relevant to your business and audience.

How relevant is the particular influencer is depends upon how often they use hashtags and make different posts related to your niche. On the other hand, if you have a post that matches any influencers’ particular brand, drop them with their mentions, and username.

Run a contest

A contest is also a great way to get more and more followers relevant to your niche, which means the potential ones. For this reason, you should always wait until you have a strong foundation for your profile before running a contest on it.

Always prefer to wait until you hit the first 1000 followers for your profile. Moreover, you also need to avoid running so many contests at the same time; a contest once every three to four months is the right limit to go with. People also wait for the next big content coming up their way and are also more likely to participate in it, leading you to have more followers without following others’ profiles.
