People who use Instagram always want more followers. If they are new, they want more followers, and if they have used Instagram for years, they want more followers.
People always want to be popular in real life, and that is the same on their social networks. Instagram is no different and the people who have a lot of followers can make a living off their social networks.
If you are new to Instagram, then it can be a little bit intimidating, but you should take your time and have fun. Don’t be worrying if you only have followers who are your friends in real life. The more you post, the more followers you will get.
If you want to be popular on Instagram and you want to keep your followers, then you have to post often. If you want to take it a bit more seriously, you should stick to a posting schedule, so your followers know when the new image is going to be updated.
If you have some downtime and you don’t post for a while, then your followers might delete you in favor of following someone else. Your friends in real life won’t do this to you, but if you have followers who follow you because they have similar interests, then they might unfollow you.
When you first upload to Instagram, you probably won’t know to use tags. This is something that is true for everyone, when they first started using the website or App. So, don’t think that you are on your own here.
Even the most popular Instagrammer has a first image and if you go through their history to find it, they probably won’t have any tags on it.
However, you should learn quickly that you should be tagging your pictures if you want to make more friends. If you don’t tag, then the image will only be visible to users who are already on your friends list.
This is because there is nothing attached to the image, to make it searchable. For example, if you tag your image with the word ‘football,’ then when other users search for ‘football,’ the image will appear in the search results.
That is how you get more followers. When someone finds your images and they are interested in whatever the tag is they will add you to their friends list because they are interested in seeing more.
It is possible to find more followers by using your other social media platforms. If you link social networks like Twitter and Facebook to your Instagram, then the image will be shared there when you post to Instagram.
You will get more followers this way because your tags will also work on those social networks. So, you will get followers with similar interests. You might even engage followers who don’t have Instagram. You post might be the post that gets them to join Instagram.
You can also get more followers by looking at the hashtag trends and posting an image that suits that trend. For example, if you know that a lot of people post POTD (picture of the day) tags, then you can post an image on that similar trend.
It could be anything that you want and a lot of people will see it. Once you have posted with this tag a few times, you will notice that people who like pictures of the day will start to add you as their friend. Your exposure will have doubled.
