So many people ask me how I have gained so many followers on Instagram and
I decided to share my secrets to success with all of YOU!
You are going to laugh at how simple it honestly is.
1. POST CLEAR AND NICE QUALITY PHOTOS.
No one and I repeat NO ONE likes looking at poor quality, fuzzy, dark and unfocused photos.
2. USE HASHTAGS!
These are hashtags from my breastfeeding page.
By having these hashtags other people who share interests can find my page.
In less than a month my breastfeeding page has gained over 4,000 likes.
Another great thing about hashtags is YOU FINDING PEOPLE YOU LIKE.
Which leads us to number 3...
3. BE ACTIVE AND SOCIAL
A perfect example is my good friend Brittany and I.
We met a year ago on Instagram and have talked every day since.
We are now eachothers bridesmaids and feel closer to eachother
than we do with friends we had in highschool.
By being active and commenting or liking someones photos
you are showing that person that you really enjoy following them
and eventually it leads into number exchange or DM and a friendship
is able to bloom. Instagram is an amazing place to make friends.
4. Host a giveaway of something people who share the same interests as you will enjoy!
I am currently in this giveaway for a Vitamix!
This product is $400 dollars and others are up to $700!
People follow me to enter and then realize they enjoy my photos.
Last but not least
5. DON'T BE THAT ANNOYING SHOUTOUT PERSON!
Everyday I am bombarded with people asking for shoutouts. If I say yes to one I have to say yes to them all and them I am just shouting out people all day and then I ask myself what's the point in me having my account if I hardly get to post my own photos?!
People don't like seeing shoutouts or even a crazy amount of giveaways in their feeds. You have to know how to perfectly balance it all and not drive away your followers.
Just be sweet. Be you. Don't stress & don't be that annoying person.
