How do we get more followers on Instagram? It’s a question that social media marketers always ask themselves. After all, the more followers you have, the more users you can convert into becoming buyers. If you’re struggling with your Instagram marketing, here are some creative ideas to get more Instagram followers:
Be More Strategic with Your Instagram Comments
Many social media marketers know that ‘follow, like, comment’ system works — but it’s somewhat tedious and time-consuming. Instead of merely following, liking, and leaving a generic comment on other users’ posts, what you should do is this: list 10 to 20 users that has a similar audience as you, then visit these accounts and leave positive, interesting comments on their most recent posts. The idea is that other people who’d comment on the same post will get curious about you because of what you said. So, they’ll visit your account, and once you got them hooked with your stunning feed, they’d likely hit that follow button.
Share Engaging Videos
Videos — especially the pleasant ones — generate a lot of user engagement. With a new algorithm, Instagram now prioritises posts with higher engagement. If your post gets many likes and comments the shortly after posting, this signals Instagram that your post is engaging and quality. Then, Instagram will move your post to the top of the follower feeds, where more users will see it. Again, the more your post is exposed on Instagram, the higher your chance of getting a new follower.
Run an Instagram Contest
Most people like winning prizes. Capitalise on this by running a contest on your Instagram account. For sure, many will be interested and hit the follow button just to get updated with your promo mechanics.
Instagram is an ideal platform to promote your brand. However, with a lot of other businesses marketing on Instagram, too, you need to be more creative in attracting your new followers.
