June 13, 2018 Linkage Interns

Instagram, one of the leading photo and video sharing social media platforms owned by Facebook, continues to dominate the market. Over the years, the social media platform became one of the most used apps for both Android and iOS users. One of the most frustrating things about it, however, is growing your followers. It could be tough to break ground, especially if one has just started their active content on Instagram. Here are some tips to organically grow your Instagram following:

Photos & Stories

One way to catch up with Instagram followers is the photo we tag to our accounts. It is essential to impress our followers with the quality or content of our post. You have to think of a post that has the right elements mashed in with photography or graphic design. Through this approach, you’ll get to be identified as a professional Instagram user.

Hashtags are Vital

Just like the other social media platforms, Our very goal on Instagram is to fascinate our current followers while also growing or having new ones. Creating new and engaging content will satisfy that need. However, using hashtags in your posts makes it easier for people who search for the same specific terms. It gives you a chance to engage with them and subsequently leading them to follow your profile.

Appropriate Filters and Other Apps

It’s through photo filters that Instagram gained its traction.  Since Instagram offers 20 filters, it gives a chance to people to enhance and personalize their image. People are more likely to share and follow your account if your photos are captivating. But now, you’re not only limited to the Instagram filters within Instagram. Now, it’s highly recommended to use other photo editing apps such as VSCO, Snapseed, Fotor, Adobe Photoshop, and more.

Consistency Is Key

Most of the followers are unlikely to follow you based on what you posted in the past. Having a profile or feed that has a consistent theme or aesthetic is a huge consideration for new followers. Are you able to publish at a constant pace? As an Instagram user, even a simple posting pattern partnered with engaging content can entice new followers. It’s important always to be active so you won’t lose touch with your followers. It’s refreshing to see fresh, new content every day, after all.

Follow Back

Lastly, the simple rule of reciprocation can go a long way for you to build your following. Some users are expecting other users to follow them back. Of course, it’s not recommended to follow just for the sake of having them follow you. Consider the quality of their content too, and if a photographer follows you because of how your feed is organized, then it might help to follow that person back, just so you can exchange value every day. — Floyd Brenz Guay, UC
