Happy Monday Babes!
One of the questions I literally get asked on the DAILY is "How did you get so many Instagram followers?" I seriously can't even count the amount of times I have been asked! So I decided to share some of my best most effective tips with you guys.
1. Networking. Networking. Networking!
I can't stress how important networking is for building a genuine following. When I first got into the blogging scene I didn't really associate it as a thing that needed you to be very social or attend events but it TRULY is. Once I started going to events and networking I grew my following by the hundreds!
2. Use ALL your hashtags!
So this probably sounds like a super obvious tip but you would be surprised how many bloggers and influencers I have met weren't using all their hashtags if any. This is one of the best ways for your Instagram to be exposed to people who don't follow you and even businesses/companies looking for bloggers and influencers to work with.
3. Engagement Matters!
This actually took me a while to catch on to! I basically would just post my pictures and then get off. It wasn't until I saw one of my good friends constantly commenting on other people and engaging so much with them that I finally just asked her like does this help? She told me that it made such a huge difference and even helped her make some of her best blogger babe friendships. SO ENGAGE WHENEVER YOU CAN!
4. Good Quality Pictures!
This is probably one of the MOST important tips I can give you honestly. No one wants to see blurry, badly lit photos and no companies are going to want to repost those kinds of photos. It's definitely quality or quantity when it comes to your content. You would rather take a few days to post a great picture then post a not so great one everyday.
5. Tag Brands!
Getting reposted by brands is the biggest way to get exposed to a ton of people who might want to follow you! If you are posting any kind of product, whether it is beauty, fashion, food, make sure you tag the brand. Almost every company has social media now so you can pretty much tag everyone. If you take a great photo and they repost it you are getting amazing exposure, especially for bigger, more popular brands.
I hope these tips can help you grow your Instagram like they did mine! If you have anymore questions feel free to hit me up on any of my socials or leave a comment below! I love answering all of your questions.
Have a great rest of your week babes!
