Our Instagram started off pretty slow. I then decided to sit down with our team and re-brand. It is very important that you take the time to see what is working for your company and what is not working. Sit down with your employees ask them what they think and how they can improve or make changes that will make your brand stand out. One thing that is important is hashtags. Can you believe I didn't use hashtags when we first started our Instagram, Crazy! Hashtags are a great form of traffic to your Instagram page. Here's an example #socialmedia, #blogger, #prettyinpink and so on. Here are the top 20 Hashtags.....
Add Social Media outlets to your Instagram account. Go to settings click on Link accounts, then click the Social Media accounts you would like to add. This is a great way to get more followers.
Post daily to build engagement, Interact with your followers, research what your followers like. You can click on each follower and look at the post they like and from there you can get an idea of what your followers are interested in. This is a really great tool.
Another way to get more followers and likes on your post is to comment and like other peoples posts. Interaction on your page is very important this also brings you more traffic.
Review time- Take the time to examine each of your posts every couple of days just to see which post are getting the most likes and comments and post a similar post to the ones that are liked the most.
These are just a couple of simple things you can do besides just following people to get more followers and keep people engaged on your account.
