In this article, we at AFROSAGES will show you 5 (five) tips you can use to grow Instagram followers organically. Go from zero to 10,000 with these simple steps.
How To Grow Instagram Followers Organically
Consider doing giveaways. Giveaways are really great to grow your audience and it’s a nice way to give back to your audience. Find items and things you think your audience will like to win. It shouldn’t necessarily be pricey. You don’t have to give away a PS4 or MacBook or an iPhone. (If you can afford it, cool).
Make it simple, nice and easy to enter. Don’t follow those trends (tag 60 friends to tag 20 friends to come and like this post and what nots). It should be fun as well. What we (AFROSAGES) do is tag 3 friends who’ll like our content.
2. SUPPORT GROUPS
Some people may/may not agree with us on this but we think it’s totally awesome. Basically, find 10 people who are in the same niche as you (Travel, Fashion, Fitness, Content Creation, Photography, Hair and Beauty). Create a group on Instagram and if anyone posts something, the other 9 people comment, like and share it.
As you know Instagram is all based on algorithm and how much interaction your post gets. The support group engaging with your content pushes your post further out into the Instagram world. Keep the group small, maximum 20. Try it out and see if it works for you.
3. HASHTAG STORIES
We find that a lot of people don’t do this. It’s so simple and it really does get people going to your account and follow you. Tagging your Instagram Stories with hashtags. This works really well is a big brand launches a new product or something hit is trending in the world.
Do well to check your Instagram Stories analytics to see how many views you got from the hashtag.
4. INSTAGRAM MEDIUMS
Making use of the various mediums Instagram has is a great way to grow your following and also create engagement. What do we mean by mediums? Instagram allows you to post pictures, carousel, videos, you can also go to Instagram Stories, go Live and all sort of things like that. Instagram has all these mediums because it’s interesting and engaging for your audience.
If you always post pictures, try posting a carrousel or a video from time to time. If someone views your carousel and swipes, Instagram views it as engagement. So your engagement goes up, that post gets to be pushed out more.
If viewers watch your video, they’re staying in your post for a longer time and Instagram sees that as more engagement. Don’t forget to engage with the people who engage with your posts. (Comment back and like their comments)
5. MEANINGFUL CONTENT
Don’t just create content, but create meaningful content. Why are people following you? What value does someone get from following your Instagram account? Makeup/Fashion icons talk about the latest products or how to style your wardrobe. Put in effort to create meaningful content.
Go and put these tips to practise and see how your audience grows organically.
