Instagram tips and tricks To Grow Your Following:

Tip 1) Before posting ask yourself if your content is providing value? Will it inform or entertain your followers? If not then consider what you can add in the caption to provide value.

Tip 2) Stay consistent but don’t overwhelm. Posting at least 5 times a week is ideal but don’t overwhelm your followers by posting 5 times a day! You don’t want anyone getting annoyed and unfollowing or forgetting who you are because you don’t post enough.

Tip 3) Try to link your content back into recent blog posts. Especially if you are a lifestyle blogger who blogs about a lot of different things. For example, if you just did a home decor post then try to link your most recent Instagram post to something home decor related.

Tip 4) Utilize relevant hashtags. Don’t just add 30 trending hashtags! Keep it relevant and think about things people could be searching that if they saw your picture would make them actually want to click on your account and follow you.

Tip 5) Fix your bio! Make sure that when someone clicks on your account that they know who you are based on your bio and what type of content they can expect.
