9 Simple Ways To Get More Instagram Followers | SMMSUMO

1. Encourage followers to take action.

As simple as it may sound, people are more likely to do something if you ask them to do it. Sharing a quote? Ask them to “like” your photo if they agree with it! Sharing something funny or relatable? Ask your followers to tag a friend! If you put the idea out there, it will encourage your followers to act accordingly.

2. Geotag your photos.

Posting a photo of that cool restaurant or city you recently visited? Geotag it! That way, other people who used the same geotag can see your photo and potentially follow you since you now have so much in common (like that french toast you both had last weekend). 😉 In case you’re confused, geotagging your photos means you tag it with a location.

3. Figure out what your audience likes.

Do a little research, yo. Go back through your photos and see which ones got the most likes and comments — and of course, the least. What clicks with your audience and why? How can you incorporate more photos like that into your feed?

4. Approach popular users to collaborate.

Think outside the box! Ask another Instagrammer if you can “take over their account” for the day as a guest contributor. Or start an Instagram challenge with daily prompts. Ultimately, think of fun, creative ways to collaborate with other users.

5. Comment & Like Strategically

Take out a piece of paper and write down 5-10 Instagram accounts that have the same audience as your account (fellow voice actors, musical theatre actors, industry publications for actors, a similar web series, etc). 

Choose one account from your list to start with and spend 5 minutes a day engaging with that account’s followers by liking their posts and leaving thoughtful (non-spammy) comments. Many of these accounts will return the favor on your posts or follow you. Anyone who views their post will see your comment and may click over to your account to have a look! 

You can do the same daily exercise for any hashtags your audience uses.  You can like and comment on Instagram posts using those hashtags to build an engaged, like-minded audience: 

6. For goodness sake, make your account public!

I know this sounds obvious but I’m always shocked how many actors have private Instagram accounts for their acting career! It’s very hard to grow a following with a private account. Switching your account to ‘public’ is the first step to audience growth. If you’re struggling with finding a balance between your public career and private life, THIS article will help. 

7. Use Instagram Stories!

Using Instagram stories lets you stay top-of-mind with your followers and gives you the chance to be recommended by Instagram. The better your stories are, the higher your chances are Instagram will add your account to the recommended stories at the top of the explore tab! Adding Hashtag and Location Stickers to your stories (see photo) can also help you show up in search for those specific places and conversations. 

8. Beat the algorithm!

Instagram (like Facebook) uses an algorithm that determines which posts are shown in the newsfeed. The more engagement (likes, comments, etc) you get on your posts, the more exposure you’ll get to your followers AND people who don’t already follow you.

Posting at the best time of day for your followers can help you maximize your likes on your post. If you have an Instagram business account you can see the best times to post in your Audience insights here:

Remember, social media is more like a telephone than a television. It’s about conversation not broadcasting! If you make your posts a conversation you’ll get more engagement. Ask your followers questions in your posts/videos and tell them to leave a comment with their answer. Or ask a question and say  if you agree (or double tap if you agree). Don’t forget to check your comments and respond/like them so your audience knows you’re listening. 

9. Use (the right) Hashtags

Using hashtags strategically is one of the fastest ways to gain exposure and grow your following on Instagram. What type of content do you post regularly. What topics do you post about? Your actorlife? Hiking? Fitness? Healthy eating? Dogs? Game of Thrones? Each of these topics have hashtags that are associated with them (and a built-in audience that uses them).  By using relevant hashtags on your posts you will attract more people who like what you like and do what you do. If you don’t have a plan for your posts on Instagram this will show you how.
