How to Increase Your Growth on Instagram in an Organic Wayby John Martin Engineer
Instagram is one of the largest social media platforms. Nowadays, users are using it for business purposes on a large scale. With over 1 billion active users, it is a pretty challenging task to manage and grow your page to a level where it can get discovered by a large number of people. Your page needs to have the right amount of followers to get found in the main newsfeeds section of Instagram so that a higher number of users can see the content you post and reach on your page directly through those posts. Though there are paid promotions available for growing your account on Instagram, there is a good chance that you can also do this task organically. For this purpose, we have mentioned some strategies to increase your growth naturally on Instagram.
To grow your Instagram account organically, the first step you need to follow is to upload content regularly. Posting content frequently will let your account get discovered in the news feeds of other accounts. If you are posting quality content that is relevant to your page, your account may get followers from all over the world. Posting content regularly will retain your followers because when they are following you, they will expect posts from your account daily. You need to check out which time works well for your account. You will have to experiment on what time in a day you get more engagements on your posts.
Hashtags play an important role in letting users reach a more significant number of audiences. Hashtags help users to come to the main newsfeeds of Instagram as well. Generally, all business accounts are public. And if you, too, have a public account, you may add a hashtag to your post. By doing so, your post will appear in the list of other posts where the same hashtag was used. Suppose, if some users are searching for images or videos related to that particular hashtag, they will get the list of all the photos or videos that have used that specific hashtag. In that list, they will also get to see the content you have uploaded with that hashtag in your caption. This will let you target the audience who loves watching content related to that particular hashtag, and they may follow your account for further updates. Make sure you don’t have more than 30 hashtags for a post, as it will not work. This is because Instagram has set a limit of 30 hashtags per post.
Hashtags can be of different categories. They can be: related to a brand or product connected to any particular industry or related to a community of sports, news, or events; related to locations, seasons, quotes, or motivational phrases; or about different fields of entertainment. You can choose from a variety of hashtags that suits your content correctly. Also, you can experiment using an array of hashtags to interact with the audience of different communities. If you are not able to find relevant hashtags that you want for your post, you can use the “Hashtags Suggestions” feature, where you can select from a range of hashtags for your post.
The best way to retain followers is to keep yourself active on your account. For that purpose, you can interact with your audience by giving them replies when they comment on your posts (if not all, then at least a few). And also post content in which you can ask for public opinion. These kinds of posts engage more audiences.
You can follow other accounts that are related to your business in some way, and by commenting on their posts, you may get discovered by the people who are following them. You may attract their audience to your account too.
To attract the audience on a large scale, you should post relevant stuff that portrays your business. You should hardly post any content which is independent of your business. You can also add stories to your account regarding the newly launched products and engage the audience by creating some real-time contest or giveaway by distributing freebies.
