People nowadays are more socially connected with their virtual friends, through many social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Tumblr, Instagram, etc., than ever. We like other people to admire us, make us feel special. For this, we post our status, beautiful pictures, stories, and different posts.
Seeing excellent posts from our friends on any social networking site, we get enthralled. We feel jealous on seeing hundreds of likes and comments on anyone's photo. This makes us view with others, and to stay in the competition, we tend to gather more followers on our profiles. And when it comes to sharing photos, Instagram is the best application that comes to our mind. It's amazing, and at the same time, it is lucrative as well with millions of pictures posted every day.
Its enigma mesmerizes us, and we all want to be a part of the Instagram community. We want to have thousands of followers to make us look fresh and swaggy in front of our friends.
Clicking photos and spending hours doing Photoshop to make them look prettier can go in vain after having only a few likes and comments. It can be depressing.
To help you gather more on Instagram followers, we at BeingTricky bring you some of the unknown methods.
Make your profile look stunning
To become famous on Instagram, you should rather focus on the quality of the photos rather than uploading too many pictures in a few hours. Your photos should be worth looking at. Better use some good filters, and try to be good at using Photoshop. You can make your photos look mesmerizing, using these tricks.
Do not upload too many pictures in a day. People who follow you might get annoyed with your too many pictures, and they might unfollow you to avoid your presence. Upload four to five photos in a day. This would make people; retain their interest in your photos.
Upload your photos during the peak time, a time when most of your friends are online. This would make them see your photos because photos on Instagram can be seen only for a time interval of three to four hours before they disappear into the gigantic Instagram community.
Make your account public
Don't make your account private. People other than your friends would not be able to look at your photos. Making your account private would make you lose your followers, even before people look at your account.
Making your account public would allow people, who are not your friends, to peek into your account and if they find it interesting, surely, they are going to follow you.
Follow as Many people
Follow as many people as you can, it will rather increase your followership. When you follow people whom you don't know, they get interested in you, and upon considering your account, they will probably start following you. On an average for every three people you follow, you are likely to get one them following you.
Give other people who couldn't follow you, some more time to discover that you are following them. To do this, you can repeatedly unfollow and follow them, to let them know the fact, that you are following them through Instagram notifications. And, even after doing this, if they do not show up and don't follow you, you better unfollow them forever.
Unfollow those people who don't seem to be active on Instagram, and also those who haven't posted any photo for a long time. Following such people would make the number of people you follow, decrease by one, because you can follow only 7500 on Instagram. This is not at all desired to happen.
Use creative and exciting tags/geotags
Use only popular and trending hashtags. Hashtags are theme based, and using popular hashtags might make other people searching for a similar hashtag, land on your account. And, if they like your photos they might start following you. Using this method, you can get many followers in a short interval of time.
If you upload group photo with your friends, tag all your friends in that picture. It would make your friends' followers jump onto your account, and they might start following you. It is the simplest way to amass followers.
If you are clicking photos at some exotic place or a famous place, then don't forget to geotag that place. Every place has its page on the Instagram page, and people are searching for that place' photos, or uploading their photos using the same geotag, are likely to look at your photos, and if they find them to be charming and engaging, they would surely go to your account and follow you.
Connect your Instagram account to your Facebook page
Link your Instagram account to your Facebook page. It would make your Facebook friends know about your presence on Instagram, and they would follow you. You should also follow your Facebook friends. It would make your followership grow rapidly.
Advertise and promote your Instagram account on other social media sites like Pinterest, Twitter, etc.
