Make Use Of Your Uniqueness
First of all, identify what makes you different from all the others posting on Instagram. Once you do that, you need to focus on that aspect. This is the thing that will set you apart from the rest and create an impact on your followers.
This can be anything under the sun. Maybe you are great with standup comedy, or you are a fashionista, a hiker or bikini athlete, you can just showcase these qualities to get as many to follow you as possible.
Create Themes For The Photos You Share
It’s all about keeping the process unique. For instance, if you use #<3 as your username, people are bound to notice you. Now once they visit your account, you have to give them something that they can fall in love with.
For this purpose, themes work out great to attract more followers. You need to scribble down a few words with which you want your followers to associate your account to.
Socialise More Often
If you are planning to grow your followers on one of the peppiest social media platforms, then socializing must be your thing! Once you see comments on your posts, don’t be a snob. Respond to these and try to socialize with your followers.
Additionally, you must comment on their pictures too. However, don’t go with a lame comments like “ Nice.” Come up with something more genuine or interesting which will encourage your followers
Make Hashtags and Encourage Others To Use It Too
This is one of the greatest ways to build your community and to get more creative content for your account. Start the process by creating unique hashtags, make sure you pick up the ones not being used by anyone else and then ask your followers to use it as well. For instance, if you a photography buff, you can create a hashtag like #123click and get your followers to use it whenever they click and upload something on Instagram.
Once people start using your hashtags, you can repost their photos and give them credit. That way more and more people will be reached and your follower base will grow automatically.
Hosting contests are a great way to connect with your followers and to get the new ones to join your bandwagon. You can ask your followers to repost specific images with your hashtags and caption. You can ask them to follow you or you invite them to use your hashtag. A loop gateway with other Instagram users is a good way to run a fun contest.
Make Use of Instagram Stories
Do you know how many people use Instagram stories? 400 million people do that on a daily basis! Many users have also reported that they love watching Instagram stories better than the endless scroll on their daily feed.
So this is your chance! Get all creative with your Instagram stories! Give your followers something to interesting by posting behind-the-scenes images and videos. You can also ask questions, create polls put up fun GIFSand of course music. All of these go a long way to get more followers on IG!
