How To Grow Your Instagram Followers
Instagram is taking over the world. That means it’s time for you to get more followers and turn your page to profit. Your brand or business, or even your personal Instagram account, needs authentic followers that will engage with your content, drive traffic to your site, and boost your earning potential. You might have hit a recent plateau in followers and can’t seem to get past a certain benchmark. You want to grow but you don’t want to use fake followers to do it. We get it. We’ve helped over 4,500 accounts get followers organically and turn their Instagram into a source of profit, and we’re here to help you.
In 2018, Instagram hit over 1 billion monthly active users. That number is exponentially increasing. Your visibility on Instagram matters more than ever. But how do you become an A-List influencer or market your brand or product to millions? There are different ways people get followers and grow their Instagram accounts, but not all of them are equally effective. Let’s review the different types of Instagram growth.
- Fake Growth
Fake growth, or buying fake Instagram followers, is a proven way to grow your Instagram account and get followers. Lots of brands and businesses use fake growth because it’s easy and the results are immediate. According to some researchers, as many as 8% of all social media accounts are fake and 30% are inactive. That’s a staggering fact, considering there are 2.77 billion social media users around the globe.
Fake growth gets you a brief boost in followers, but it comes at a long-term cost to your brand. Your niche audience will trust you less if they see you’re being followed by a bunch of fake accounts. People associate fake accounts with bad things, you get dramatically less engagement (or none at all), and you make your account seem suspicious for having 20,000 followers and 20 likes per post. Not only that, but there are ways to check if a follower is fake.
Lots of companies offer fake growth using bots, like Buzzoid and Skweezer, but that kind of activity drives down your engagement-to-follower ratio, reducing your account credibility. It’s especially important to avoid fake bot growth companies now that Instagram is cracking down on influencers that use fake followers. This year, they’re even killing off fake follower accounts, and threatening accounts that use apps to get them.
- Hopeful Growth
Hopeful growth involves making good content and waiting for it to be discovered. You use the right hashtags, you make your posts at the right time, and you hope for the best. The drawback is that you’re competing with a lot of other people. It’s proven that you need good content to make it on the Instagram Explore Page, the “realest place on the web”, which is key to Instagram success. The Explore Page is unique to each Instagram user, and consists of posts you’ve liked, posts liked by people whose posts you liked, accounts similar to those you follow, and posts with high engagement. You can even find location-based stories, event videos, and other picked-for-you videos through the Explore Page. If just one key account likes your content, you can show up on the Explore Page for hundreds, thousands, or millions of people.
Hopeful growth also involves strategies like using Influencer shout-outs. Shout-outs on a popular bio, story, feed post, or IGTV steam can be a good way to boost visibility and engagement. What influencers post, and what receives a lot of likes, has a huge influence on what millennials do and purchase. Influencer marketing is proven to work and influencer-based content performs better than brand-based content. Over 72% of users on Instagram have said they’ve bought a product they saw on Instagram and 80% of users follow at least one business. Additionally, 60% of Instagram users report making a purchase after viewing a branded video.
