To increase the number of your followers on Instagram, like and comment on photos posted by people who are related to your interests, have a contest that requires people to like the photo to enter and use hashtags that are related to following, such as #followback or #instafollow. Use other social media platforms to promote the Instagram account, and let people know what type of content they can expect to see.
The best times to post photos on Instagram are 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The least amount of photos are posted on Sunday, so posting on Sundays could be a way to gain exposure. Wednesdays are the best days to post pictures on Instagram. Delete all photos that are not necessary, and try to post only consistent, high-quality content. Avoid spamming your audience, but include a link to a website and a bio with related keywords and hashtags.
Go to the suggested users option and follow those people. To connect with local Instagram users, geotag photos, and always tag the people who appear in photographs. Making a collage of photos can be an effective way to maximize engagement. Consider asking a popular Instagram user or a business to mention your Instagram page. Research shows that people enjoy pictures with faces 35 percent more than those without.
