My top Instagram tips and tricks for growing your account:
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 so your readers gain something from your post.
Tip 2) Stay consistent but don’t overwhelm yourself. 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 but random 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.
Tip 6) Make sure you are staying active on stories. A lot of people just look at stories now on Instagram and don’t spend much time looking at in feed posts.
Tip 7) Don’t forget to location tag. This is a great way to reach more people especially people that aren’t bloggers and don’t necessarily follow a lot of bloggers. Which tend to be the people who will shop your links the most!
Tip 8) Respond to comments. Of course you don’t need to respond to spam/bots but everyone who is “real” try to respond to those comments. It’ll encourage people to comment again and the algorithm likes comments. And it counts as true engagement to Instagram.
Tip 9) Share each new post on other platforms. If you want to grow your Instagram make sure to share the post across platforms. Especially Twitter and Pinterest!
