Step by Step Guidelines
Following are the step by step guidelines to become Instagram famous by getting real likes and engagements from the audience.
Hashtags are one of the best ways to let your post go in front of a large audience to get more engagements. Always do some research on hashtags which are relevant to your posts and check which one is in trending before posting anything. When you find out your hashtag, use it wisely in your posts which would definitely help you a lot in gain more organic reach. Don’t put your hashtags in irrelevant posts which are not related with the hashtags. If you don’t find your hashtag, simply create your own hashtag. The number of hashtags Instagram allows us to use in a post is around thirty. But experts say that it is good to use around 11 hashtags per posts. Using the relevant hashtags is best for getting more and more likes on your Instagram posts. In this way, you’ll receive more likes which would be 100% real from a genuine audience.
Captions play an important role in capturing audience attention towards the post. An eye-catching and meaningful capture would always attract the audience and urge them to explore more related posts of that profile if they like that particular post. So there is a chance to get more likes by posting attractive captions. Asking questions from the audience has proven to be the most effective way in generating likes and comments from the audience resulting in effective engagement with them.
A special feature on Instagram is known as live broadcasting. People usually go live to showcase them or their business to the audience in order to engage with them to get new followers. Do some questions answer sessions in the live session and play some games with your audience, if they win the game, rewards them with some gift hampers, etc. In this way, the audience gets engaged with you, which helps you get new followers and real likes.
Instagram stories are probably the best way to increase engagement with the audience. Most people explore watching stories more than the posts. Stories are a great way to attract people. By using Instagram stories will increase your follower count. It is an amazing feature of Instagram that lets you show your story to your followers for 24 hours and after that, it would disappear. The stories should be relevant to your product. Moreover, you can post stories of your upcoming products as a product teaser to attract the audience.
Don’t post irregularly:
Being an Instagram marketer, you probably post photos and videos of your products in your Instagram account. But keep one thing in mind that over-posting can cause problems for your business. Don’t over the post as people follow many other accounts and if they watch only your post including photos or videos, they might get fed up of seeing your posts only in their feed and might unfollow you. So, there is a risk of getting unfollowed if you over a post. Post around 3-4 times a day at specific times. First, analyze your audience when they get active most. Don’t post at the same time which may result in less engagement with the audience. Experts say that Sunday is the day when people get active more on Instagram results in higher engagements.
Tag Your Location:
Whenever you post on Instagram, don’t forget to tag a location in your post. This would generally help you getting more audience reach as the post would go in front of people living in that location. This is probably the best way to target the audience in your local area. People are often interested in seeing your location. So if you tag location in your posts so peoples who live in the same location will definitely like your post and in result, you’ll receive more Instagram likes and engagements.
Instagram introduced a new feature which has the ability to share a mix of up to 10 photos or videos as a single carousel post that your audience can swipe through. Carousel tool is used to develop interest among the followers. You can post up to 10 photos or videos in a single post which attracts your followers more. Carousel is a great way to tell stories through multiple photos or videos that you can swipe through.
There are many other ways also to get real likes and engagements but I found these ways to be most effective which would not only help you gain real likes but also turn those visitors in followers. Start implementing these steps and become Instagram famous.
