How do you build up your instagram followers?

When I build a website, or pay someone to do it, I always set up all my social profiles that will be for my new website. Now I may not be active on each social profile every day, but at least no one can take my name How do you build up your instagram followers?

My main thing with instagram is how do I build a quality following?

I think I'm doing pretty well, but I'm sure it can be better. I'm active on instagram and I get a lot of likes and comments, but not many conversions. I did find a really good programmer who freelances and I'm currently working with him on a website now, but that's the only case of instagram being useful for me How do you build up your instagram followers?

When I go to post an image I'll either use something from my website or I'll get an image from google and customize it prior to posting. During the posting process you can add some text and I'll put in a brief description of what the image is about. Now this is where I get tricky ;) I'll add a bunch of tags to my images and hope that I get a ton of random profiles to come in and follow or like my image. As for choosing my tags I've found that a good mix of highly targeted tags while mixing in a few low targeted tags is best because they highly used ones will have a chance of getting put at the top because they get popular from your current followers and the new followers you gain from being a popular image getting added to the top of a less popular tag.

Am I doing it right? For my new website/instagram profile I have around 200 followers and I'm following 600 or so. I'm following that many people because I instantly followed all my facebook friends lol How do you build up your instagram followers?

Let me know your thoughts and if you think I should add or change anything.


Thanks How do you build up your instagram followers?

Hey Razzy,
I don't use Instagram myself but I suppose I would build my following more or less in the same way I get fans to my facebook pages. However, Facebook and Instagram are not identical so what everything I do on FB might not work on Instagram. With that being said, Follow for follow is usually a good way to start at least, I know that much. I found an article about this.

TIP NO. 1: HAVE A SHTICK

Really successful Instagram accounts tend to stick to a theme: a designer who posts behind-the-scenes peeks into the fashion industry; a food artist who does amazing things with rice and string beans; a world traveler with a flurry of snapshots from Paris, Portugal and Peru; a crafty celeb obsessive; and, of course, an abundance of adorable puppies and kittens.

TIP NO. 2: STICK TO A SCHEDULE

It’s very important that your followers know when to expect a new picture. “If you’re going to be daily, you have to post daily,” Dasher told The Huffington Post. “Your audience will expect that rhythm.”

Lee also sticks to a daily schedule. “If I update my account once a week or too many at a time then disappear for weeks, it is unlikely that I can build a loyal following,” she told HuffPost in an email.

TIP NO. 3: DON’T BE BORING

If people are coming to your account for photos of your frowny-faced kitten, you probably don’t want to throw in a picture of your morning soy latte. But giving the people what they want doesn’t have to mean posting the same photos of sunsets and cityscapes over and over and over.

“The worst thing for me is to look at my own feed and be bored,” said Ketron. “I know what type of photo is going to get more likes, but I still do my best to make posts that I want to see and share. I like symmetry, I like lines, I like buildings. But it’s not like I don’t shoot landscapes or portraits as well.”

It’s easy for a themed Instagram account to grow repetitive, but being a travel photographer means that Ketron always has something new and different to share — and that’s what an audience wants. Even Dasher mixes up her Tuna feed with a few fan art photos.

How do I build Instagram followers is also my question. I am also encountering problems in generating engagements on my posts. I am yet to create Instagram accounts for each of my websites, however, I have two Instagram account, one for my fashion website and another for personal use. They say by using trending hashtags, you can build followers and engagements, however, I am yet to explore on this method. I use hashtags related to the post my I don't get engagements because of a low number of followers.

As I see it in Facebook, those posts that are getting a lot of reactions are mostly the creative post. You can be humorous or you can be serious but be prepared to share new information. What I like in some personal posts are the anecdotes that are unique although not necessarily funny. It is interesting to read something that is an excerpt from experience.
