Regularly post well-made photos and videos

Maybe it will seem obvious to you as advice, but regularly post well-made photos and videos it is of fundamental importance to get new followers on Instagram (this "rule" actually applies to any social network). After all, if the last content posted dates back to several weeks ago or even several months ago, your profile could give the impression of being neglected, out of date or even "old"! Therefore, make an effort to post at least one or two photos a day every day - you will see that users will appreciate it.



Before posting content, however, make sure it is impactful and beautiful to look at. On the other hand, what really matters on Instagram is the aesthetics of the contents: the more a photo is beautiful to look at, the more appreciation it will receive and the greater the chances that the profile that hosts it will win new followers.

How do you say? Are you well aware of what has just been said but you are not very good at taking pictures? Then I suggest you immediately remedy the situation by reading some insights I have published on the subject, such as the one in which I explain how to look good in photos or how to take beautiful photos. You will see, they will be very useful to you!

For the aforementioned reasons, do not post for any reason in the world photos or videos that have important defects: rather, try to make your shots more attractive by applying one of the many filters made available by Instagram (without exaggerating). rather pronounced defects, try to "save" it by correcting the defects through some app to retouch photos or, better still, with a photo editing program, such as the famous Photoshop.


Get inspiration from trending content on Instagram

Before posting any content on Instagram you should draw inspiration from trending content posted by other users of the social network. By analyzing the most popular posts of the moment, in fact, you will be able to understand which are the topics that are most successful, how to deal with them and which types of shots receive the most appreciation.


Instagram allows you to take a look at the most popular content of the moment through the "Explore" section, which can be accessed by pressing the icon of magnifying glass (from mobile) or on the symbol of compass (from PC).

Don't Instagram trends seem very complete to you? Well, if you want to get some more information about the most popular content on Instagram, you can turn to Iconosquare, a paid online service that allows you to search for trending content by filtering search results based on the number of likes, comments and shares they have received.

Iconosquare, despite being a paid service (the basic plan costs $ 9 per month and allows you to manage and analyze only one profile), can be used for a 14-day trial period and does not provide for automatic renewal. At the end of the trial you will be free to decide whether to subscribe to continue using the service or not.

Use popular and relevant hashtags

Did you know that use popular and relevant hashtags to the content you post on Instagram can allow you to have more followers? Are you wondering how this is possible? I'll explain it to you right away. Hashtags (i.e. those words or phrases preceded by the symbol #), act as labels, as they define the topic or content present in an image or video. Whenever a user searches on Instagram, the social network's internal search engine returns relevant results based on the hashtags present in the post.


You've probably already figured it out: using the most popular hashtags, as well as those most relevant to your content, can greatly increase the visibility of your posts and, consequently, the chances of gaining new followers. But be careful not to go off-topic and not to use hashtags that have nothing to do with the content of a photo or video just because they are trendy.


Are you wondering how it is possible to know which hashtags are the most popular at any given time? Simple, with some third-party solutions, such as online services Top HashtagWebsta and the apps HashTags for Instagram per Android e Top Tags for Android and iOS. All 100% free.

Connect your social profiles to Instagram

Another way to have free Instagram followers I say connect other social profiles to your account, in such a way as to automatically share Instagram posts on Facebook and other social networks and allow a larger number of users to view your photos and videos. If your content is of quality, you may be able to "translate" your followers from Facebook (or other social networks) to Instagram with ease.

To connect other social profiles to your Instagram account, press the icon oflittle man located at the bottom right and tap on the symbol (...) to access the menu of options. Then locate the entry Linked accounts (you can find it in the section Settings) and connect your social accounts by tapping on the icon Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. Then follow the instructions you see on the screen and the game will be done in a few taps.


As soon as you have connected your social profiles to Instagram, all the content you post on it will be shared automatically on the linked accounts, unless you decide to disable the specific function during publication. By doing this you will be able to optimize your time (since you will not have to manually publish the same content on multiple social networks) and, why not, invest it to interact with your audience, as I am about to explain.


Interact with your audience

Interact with your audience it is essential to have direct contact with followers and to ask for suggestions on the issues to be addressed in the profile posts. What tools can you use for this purpose? Instagram offers several, including the Live and polls.

With regard to Live, pay close attention to the location you choose to shoot the direct being careful avoiding too noisy and / or crowded places and preferring duly lit environments. In addition to this, pay attention to your appearance, so as to impress your followers and, once the live broadcast is over, don't forget to share it (to allow users who have not been able to see it to view it "deferred" in the 24 hours later). For more information on how to do Live on Instagram, read the article I published on the subject.

A very useful tool for interacting with your followers is represented by polls. Instagram, for some time now, has introduced a interactive sticker which allows you to create polls within stories. You can use this feature and ask your followers for their opinion on a certain topic. You can also ask your audience if they appreciate the content you've posted in the last period, you can ask which topics they are most interested in and so on. If you want to know some more information about how polls are done on Instagram, do not hesitate to read the post I published some about it.

Analyze your profile statistics

Analyze the statistics coming from your Instagram profile and reading this data correctly is another way to increase your followers. Not everyone, however, can access this valuable information: to access it you need a company account and use the "Insight" tool containing the statistics of your profile (the number of likes obtained by each post, the number of comments made by users , the impressions; the coverage, etc.).

Don't have a business account and are worried about not being able to analyze your profile stats? Don't worry, you can immediately remedy the situation by connecting a Facebook page of which you are an administrator to your Instagram account and follow the wizard to change your account from personal to corporate. If you have difficulty doing this, read the guide in which I show in detail how to see the views on Instagram.

As soon as you have changed your profile to business, you will finally be able to analyze the statistics and use this information to choose the types of content to publish and also how and when to publish them. You will see, over time you will learn about the tastes of your audience and, over the months, you will increase the number of your followers.

Don't buy followers

If you are already putting into practice the advice I gave you in the previous paragraphs, but you have not yet seen concrete results, you may be tempted to buy followers through some ad hoc applications.. Well, do you want some advice? Do not do it! Although, usually, this kind of app can be used for free (some even allow you to buy followers even with real money), using them will inflate your profile a little, but will not achieve any significant results. I'll explain.

Maybe with these apps you will get thousands of followers in a relatively short time, but they could stop following you at any moment even faster. And then to get new followers you may be asked to become someone else's follower yourself. Are you really willing to go down to this compromise? I hope not! Be that as it may, the last word is up to you.

I hope you take advantage of the tips I gave you in this guide and that, by putting them into practice, you can increase the number of followers and increase visibility on Instagram. Good luck!
