There are over 800 million people on Instagram and so many of these users want more followers. Are you one of them? Silly question, right? Of course you are! Let’s admit it, we all want more followers for various reasons. Who doesn’t want to see a big number next to their followers? Well, the good news for you is that I have the inside scoop on how to get Instagram followers so that you can say goodbye to the days of feeling like you don’t have enough and hello to the days of feeling either popular or like you’re about to make some money from your business page.

Right, now that we’ve established (or admitted) that we’re all here to get more Instagram followers let’s get into it and discuss how this can be done. I’ve narrowed this down to 5 short, sharp, savvy tips! Make sure you stick around for all 5 because they’re a sure fire way of hitting your growth goals!

1- Hashtagging

This may sound like an obvious one but it really works. If you get creative and witty with your hashtags then this can go along way to creating more engagement and gaining more followers. If you struggle to come up with some of your own you can also check out hashtagsforlikes as this site can give you some exact tags to use for specific niches/markets.

2- Content Posting

Posting content on a regular basis that is relevant to the type of followers that you want to attract is key. If you post consistently then people will be more inclined to follow you and want to see what you’re up to! Whether you’re a regular traveler sharing the sights of the world, a fitness fanatic sharing your gym selfies or a businessman/woman trying to put your name out there, posting good quality content can help big time. Another little secret I’ll let you in on is to post between the hours of 7–10pm as this is when most users are active.

3- Make Your Page Clear

What I mean by this is, have your page clearly showing what you’re into so that people viewing it will quickly realize that you share the same interests. This can be done by having a well defined bio and posting content that can be related back to your bio so everything is consistent.

4- Engage With Others

If you find users that you would like to have following you and then engage with them it will increase the chances of this happening. When I say engaging what I mean is-go to their page, find posts that stand out to you, give them a like and even write a comment on it to show that you’re genuinely interested. If you’re really digging the page then hit them with a follow and chances are if they’re into the same things as you then they will follow you back!

5- Instagram Growth Services

This brings me to my final tip which is quite possibly the cheekiest but also the best. Instagram growth services can be an easy way to get ahead and grow the followers that you want. There are services out there that help with my aforementioned tips such as engagement through liking, commenting and following. That’s right, you can hire a service to grow your page for you. Although, achieving this yourself can definitely be done, many of us do not have the time to keep up with everything in our lives if we are focusing on social media. So, this last tip is a bit of a life -hack in a way because by using a growth service you can get Instagram followers while you work, eat, play and even sleep. I know people can be skeptical about these but that’s why I have done hours of research on services out there and listed my recommended ones below:

A). SocialSteeze- One Of The Best (if not the best) Growth Tools There Is

With so many services out there it was hard to find the best but SocialSteeze separates itself from the rest for many reasons:

  • The slick sign up process makes it easy to get on board and start growing followers within a matter of hours.
  • Good customer service can be hard to come by but that isn’t the case here, SocialSteeze staff are super friendly, helpful and responsive. They also know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to growing your account which after all, is the main attraction.
  • One of the best parts is that they grow real followers who will actually engage with you and they can also target specific people so that the followers you’re growing are relevant.
  • Cheap, affordable payment plans. They offer two different plans catering to diverse needs and the pricing on their site is very clear and self-explanatory.

SocialSteeze has been around long enough to know the best ways to get followers for you. They combine the newest insights/technology with fantastic customer service to provide you with a very well-rounded service.

B). Likesocial- For Great Levels Of Engagement

Here is a great service for those that want high levels of engagement and followers, fast! Likesocial offers different options for followers, likes and views. Whatever, you’re after, they’ve got you covered. They provide high quality service and are making great tracks in the Instagram growth tools industry. Check them out for more info!

In conclusion,

There are many ways to get Instagram followers but after delving deep into the world of social media for years I am confident my advice will go along way to helping you grow your page. We know that users with more followers are viewed upon in a great light and we know that most want to hit those highs. Many have been successfully using these ways behind the scenes to grow followers for years but now it’s time that everyone knows how- with these tips out there it can now become a level playing field and you too, can grow followers and reach your goals. If you’ve got the time to invest in your page then I suggest tips #1–4 but if like many out there, you don’t have the time then I would recommend tip #5 and let the pros help you out! These days so much emphasis is put on social media and how high of a presence you have on there. To some this is a sad reality but these days it’s just a fact, if you’re not on there, you’re being left behind. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get out there and get ahead!
