Take great photos
The first fundamental rule to be able to have followers on Instagram is undoubtedly to take beautiful photos. It may seem trivial and obvious yet it is not always taken into account that a well-made shot, capable of highlighting the subject of the same or in any case able to attract the attention of the observer is a fundamental prerogative to be able to increase one's own number of "followers".
So when you take a photo to share with Instagram I suggest you focus on choosing the right subjects and the most correct angles. Also strive to ensure that what you photograph is clearly visible or that at least is able to attract the gaze of others. Keep in mind that in most cases it's all about the eye and intuition and that you don't need to be a professional photographer. In any case, if you need some useful advice about it you can consult my guides on how to take beautiful photos and how to take artistic photos.
Use the right hashtags
Another good tip to get followers on Instagram is to resort to the use of the most adapted hashtags, that is, relevant to your shots and which at the same time are popular among users.
To find out which are the most popular hashtags of the moment you can go to the website All-hashtag which shows you which ones are most used on a certain topic. The service is free and it is not necessary to register in any way to use it. Alternatively you can contact Top Hashtag, which shows the most popular hashtags of the moment.
Consider that most of the hashtags indicated on the Internet sites I have just suggested are in English. However, this shouldn't be a problem since your photos posted through the famous app are seen by users from all over the globe. Precisely for this reason to be able to have followers on Instagram I suggest you not only to carefully select the hashtags to use but also to include those in a foreign language.
Use the right filters
Do you want to have followers on Instagram? Yup? Very well, then try to choose carefully and accurately the filters to apply to your photos, making sure that they make your shots even more inviting and captivating and selecting those most appreciated by other users. Using a filter that can enhance your shot in the eyes of others contributes to increasing the number of potential users interested in your profile on the famous app, never forget it.
So I suggest you choose the filters to apply to your shots based on common sense and what your personal taste is. Eventually you can also do a quick search on Google to find out which are the most popular and appreciated filters. Alternatively, since many users have the habit of indicating the filter used in the hashtags to add to the photo, you can turn to the Internet sites that I have reported to you in the previous lines, talking about hashtags, to find out which are the most popular filters of the moment.
To be able to have followers on Instagram I also suggest that you regularly share your photos or try to create a sort of appointment to which your followers must want to participate, no ifs and buts.
In this regard, I suggest you not to post burst photos but not even to be absent from Instagram for long periods of time. So try to find a balance and identify times when your audience guarantees the greatest degree of interaction. Therefore, proceed to post your photos at regular intervals. Then try to figure out who actually likes your photos and who doesn't. In principle, avoid posting more than 4 photos a day and allow at least 4-5 hours to pass between one shot and the next but keep in mind that each account is a story in itself, which is why, suggestions aside, you must be you to be able to identify what you think may be the most suitable solution to your situation.
Connect social accounts
If you have not already done so, know that to have followers on Instagram also connecting the social accounts you use to the famous app to take and share photos can be particularly useful. It is in fact a valid way to make sure that your shots are seen by as many people as possible with the least effort and, consequently, to be more likely to attract the attention of new users.
To link your Instagram account with Facebook, or with Twitter or with other supported social networking services, presses the little man icon which is located at the bottom right of the main menu of the app. Then select the gear icon located at the top right, go to the menu Linked accounts attached to the section Settings and select the social network of your interest from the list of available social services. After providing the authorization for the publication of the photos on the other social network, Instagram will automatically post your content on the latter after selecting the services of interest during the publication phase.
If the functions to connect the famous app to take and share photos to your other social accounts are not enough for you and therefore if you are looking for additional systems to have followers on Instagram, I invite you to try IFTTT. This is a free application available for Android and for iOS which allows you to automate the interaction between all the most popular Web services.
After downloading the app on your smartphone, create your free account on IFTTT and access the screen with the "recipes" (the scripts that allow interaction between the various Web services) by first pressing the mortar icon placed at the top right and then on that of the glasses. Then click on the magnifying glass icon and search for terms such as Instagram Twitter o Instagram Facebook to access all the recipes that allow you to automatically post Instagram photos on various social networks. When you find a script that interests you and then you want to activate press on it then tap the button Add Recipe to activate it.
Indices and / or participate in contests
Establishing a contest, that is, contests in which users of the social network can participate to win prizes of various kinds, or lose part in them is now a very important factor for having followers on Instagram.
If you manage the account of a small company and are looking for an effective system to have followers on Instagram, then try to organize a contest and invite users to participate. The most successful contests are clearly those that actively engage the public so ask users to take photos related to a common theme, share them on Instagram and use a hashtag of your choice. By doing this you will promote your content and allow contest participants to express themselves creatively.
If, on the other hand, you are a "simple" user, participating in the contests that you think are most interesting should allow you to get your shots noticed to a wider audience united by a common interest and therefore to increase the number of followers on Instagram.
