How to get more likes and followers on Instagram

How to get more likes and followers on Instagram
Social media we all use it at one point well the most majority of us do. Instagram is just one of the popular social media websites a social network which allows members to share photos and now videos with also live feeds. Some get followers and likes, pretty easy and natural well some others seem to flop at this. So how do you get good quality followers, and also maybe likes on your photo's/content?

Hashtags #:

Similar to Twitter Instagram using a hashtags system, which means using just the right hashtags with your pictures or photo's can get you some followers also likes. Try and use the right hashtags and try not to use a hashtag if it is not related to the content you are sharing. For example, if you have taken a picture of a beautiful rainbow the best hashtags would be #rainbow #nature #beauty or similar ones to that what actually goes with the image. Also, try making sure the image quality looks great. It is pointless doing hashtags which don't relate to the image, you probably think "Well yes we know this" but I am touching on this because you be surprised how many I saw. I once used the search and searched the hashtags #Cars and I noticed some images came up not even the slightest related to the hashtag.

I saw an image of a cat with hashtags #cars #motorsports it was ridiculous. So try and use as many hashtags related to the subject and you be surprised how many likes you will get and followers you will gain. Because some will use the search bar to search for topics or niche related subjects and if you have an image with the hashtag they are searching for chances are it will come up and you will gain likes and possibly followers. So use more hashtags try and use as many as you can to go with the image/content.

Image & Photo quality:

I have noticed this helps a heck of a lot. Here is a little know fact and tip for you which does work and has been tested. When you upload an image before you publish it, it allows us to edit the image and effects. Now here is what you should do edit the image, go to colour and choose the blue effect. This will give a little tint of blue in your image you will be surprised how effective this can have on your image. This does work and many do this.

Also, try and use a good quality photo if your taking photo's make sure you are using a good camera or if on your mobile always make sure you get a clear image. I have known many who before taking a photo always clean the lens on their phone where the camera is to take a great picture. The better the quality the better the reactions you will get. Also try and space your images out what you upload, seen many uploads every 5 minutes which is very bad especially if you are wanting followers. Why? Well uploading too many images will actually lose you, follower's because this will fill up in your followers feed and all the will see is images you have uploaded every 5 minutes and they will most likely unfollow you. Try also post so many a day and don't go overboard, many Instagramers the successful ones I see post at least 5 or 6 images a day and all spaced out.

The follower method:

This is also another effective way to gain followers, some may disagree but don't knock it till you tried it. Yeah, it means following a load of people but hey don't just follow anyone. Find your niche your in for example; if you're into SEO or Blogging to CARS. Then choose the niche you are in so let's say my niche is about blogging or blogs, I will use the search box to search for #blogging. When the results come back I look for an image or content what is related to what I normally post or my passion. I then click the image with the most likes, then when the image loads up I also then click the username at the top of the person who uploaded this image.

Once you are on this personal profile you may notice they have a load of followers, now click on their followers next follow as many as you can. It will only let you follow so many every so often. But why follow this person's followers.... Well simple, the reason why these members are following this member is that they like what they see. So if you're in the same niche/topic then chances are most them will follow you. You may end up following a lot of members but it is ok, as the more you get to follow back in that niche then maybe a week or 2 down the line you will start to get followers organically.

Try these tips out and hope this has helped...


I think the biggest and best strategy is to be a creative person. Have their own ideas and execute them in the best possible way. The outcome of the good work will come at the right time and forcing this is something that can be very frustrating (if you don't know how to deal it).

Yes, I think this is very párticular in every niche. What are you promoting and who are your followers? Depending on he answers you might choose one strategy to attract followers over another. In any case quality content is a must regardless of what you work with

Thanks for the tips. I'm having a hard time getting Instagram followers. I need Instagram for marketing my websites in the future. I do follow a lot of people and some do follow me back, but not all people that I follow follow me back. I do admit though that I don't have a lot of pics to show. Haha! I know that content is king, so I'll probably have to polish my photography skills. People do tend to follow people who have awesome pics on Instagram.

Certainly that's the esy to go if obe needs more follows. Hashtag really helps to make one's post go far and wide and helping a lot of people sees one post and to follow such handle.

Personally I follow some handles for a follow back and it works like magic

What I have done so far is posting good quality comments and the images. That seems to be helping a lot in terms of getting re-shares and followers. You can see that some of the time this form of method does help out. I think there is no fixed formula for this. You have to find out what may or may not work for your case. And then build your followers on the top of that. That's what I'd do for sure.

Great tips that work 100%. I have been simply posting very memorable and "catchy" looking pictures on my Instagram and my follower's number has raised a lot. On top of that, I always include different hashtags like you've suggested - this raises the exposure rate of the picture. Also, you can always promote your Instagram profile on other social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and so on. It's great to mix them all together

These tips are really good, nowadays it's really important to have a lot of followers on Instagram if you're interested in generating a profit from social media. The first thing to do is get creative and have an idea of what your page is going to be about. If it's something new and innovative you could really start earning big amounts of cash.

Those are some great tips. I advertise my products on Instagram and I always use high-quality pictures. I also know the market I am targeting and the types of followers I want to have. To be honest, I have found some people posting too many pictures and posts per day that I had no choice but to unfollow them. It becomes boring to see similar posts from the same person over and over again.

I think the follower method is very good, since it helps to bring lots of traffic to someones website at the end.

I think it depends on the type of content you usually post in instagram. I believe that certain content is more conducive to receiving more tanning from others. Anyway, I recommend using hashtags. I think it's the best way to spread your information so that more people can find you and enjoy your post.

High quality and interesting images. The whole point of Instagram is images so if you do not have high quality images then no one is going to follow you because they won't want to have their newsfeed filled with low quality images. And it also has to be interesting enough for the user to actually want to look at it and find out more about it. If your image is boring, the user will most likely just skip past it.

Hash tages are wonderful ways to get your content found on various social media sites including Twitter, facebook and Instagram. If you use hash tags, your content will be grouped under the contents using the same hash tags. hashtages are easy eay to reach more people and get more engagements. In order to get most from instagram, you need to share interesting content with proper hashtags.

Both hashtags and image quality are important, and I think there's one other factor to go along with those points: consistency. Be sure you're uploading content on a regular and consistent basis, that way your follows will see your stuff regularly and know that you're active. I started actively trying to grow my followers at the beginning of the summer, and I'm at the point where I can make two Instagram posts a day. I use as many of the correct hashtags as I can per post, and I'm currently seeing an average growth of +100 followers a month according to my analytics.

Everyone is going to tell you the same stuff, about having quality content and being consistent and so on, however the real deal is just following and unfollowing people, it's one of the most common methods and it works like a charm. Your followers won't be the most consistent ones, but you can clearly see a nice increase.

You want to attract attention and get positive feedback. It will all pay off in the long run and you will start to see the results.

Just created an Instagram account. I try to sign in each day, follow and like. I'm not very active right now because I am working on other home business projects. But I definitely do want to create an Instagram presence as I think it will contribute to me building a good online reputation. Thanks for the tip about the “follower method”. Will try it.
Posted by foxchannel on 11-16-2017
It's very interesting this idea. I always wondered how people can manage to get so many followers without much effort lol. I have a very nice Instagram account in my opinion and most of the people following me are people that I know in real life. I might try someday these tips to see if it works.

Getting more likes and followers on Instagram is as easy as reading the first three letters of the alphabet. To get more Instagram likes and followers, it's great to share posts and ideas on the platform with the public, friends, friends of friends and to other categories of people regularly.
Posted by potentialwriter on 12-15-2017
You can get more likes and followers if you presented a very interesting topic, photos, or videos that most of the people will be interested to see and what makes them tick the button to like and follow you so they will get notifications of your latest updates. As long as you're giving them a reason to visit your account, you won't need to worry about not getting likes anymore since they will automatically come to your account to be updated about your status. Always think of a new gimmick that would spice up your account.

I am really getting interested in Instagram because of the probability that I can be an influencer. If I have 1,000 followers, that’s good enough for a start. And if I can get 100,000 followers then I can be considered a celebrity of sorts that I can endorse products for a fee of $200 to $400 per post of my picture with the product that I am endorsing. That’s a shot in the dark but who knows if Instagram users will be interested in the pictures that I will be posting.

This is helpful, particularly since I work for a company that is trying to extend their social media reach! I’ll have to try these tips myself and see how they go in increasing our followers.

Thank you for sharing these good tips. I have not set up my Instagram profile yet, but I have followed some bloggers in Instagram as it seems like it's a popular social media site that many are digging into nowadays. I have tried your follower method, not in Instagram, but in Twitter, I think the method should work the same in all these sites, I found that it works nicely, and my followers grow as long as I work on it. As long as we define our niche and follow it, I think we will slowly get more followers and more likes too.

I agree with your tips! I have an online shop which started in Instagram and I can attest that hashtags, the quality of photos, and using the "the follower" method is really effective. In Instagram, you can use up to 30 hashtags so by utilizing all of it, you can widen your reach.
