10 tips to double your organic instagram followers this month- without buying fakes


Wondering how to grow your following? .

.

Don’t want to waste time and money on fake followers. 

.

.

I use this 10 tips daily with all my social media clients to grow their following organically- with actual, real potential clients in their market





.

.1. Use geotagging (location tagging) 

With just a snap you can put a location on your post. So when people are searching a particularly location they might stumble upon you

.




.

2. use stories everyday- you’ll get double or triple more views than on the grid 

.

People like to channel serve often on Instagram and don’t usually stumble upon your grid very often as opposed to the stories and discovery panel.

.

.




3.Use pretty colors and patterns that match your brand

use a site like Canva (www.canva.com) , the Over app (www.madewithover.com)  or the adobe spark (spark.adobe.com) app to create some amazing graphics that match your brand and color scheme 

.

.




4. Comment and interact with people liking your work 

.

It is called “social” media marketing after all. The more that your social with people, the more they would want to work with you in the future.

.

,




5. DM particular people about your services and to collaborate 

.

If you see the same particular people commenting and liking your posts often,  then reaching out through a personal message might be really helpful to capture their attention

.

.



6. Use strategic hashtags that help to find people in your interest and area. 

.

You can have up to 30 hashtags on your post. Make sure if you can think of any hashtags -then using a generator hashtag app might be helpful! 

.

.




7.Use video content or IGTV

HGTV is a great place to do tutorial videos, behind the scenes content, how to videos any even reviews of products.

.

people are more likely to click on a video or buy a product based on a video than a picture.

.

.





8.Follow everyone who liked your posts 

.

When you follow someone, it shows up on their notifications and so they are more likely to follow you back if they see you in the front of their dashboard

.

.



9. Follow hashtags in your area and interest 

.

Search in the discovery panel for hashtags that relate to your topic area. If you’re a hair and make up artist, then finding other hair and make up artists in your local city might be great for collaboration and for liking and sharing content. 

.

.




10. Repost from local artists and host events, broadcast or shout outs

.

.

Have anybody that has tagged you recently in a post or a review of your product, or business?

.

This is a great place to thank them personally for stopping by and taking the time to review or share content with your page. 

.

.




Bonus: post daily and at the peak times for people to be online. 

.

.

6 to 9 AM, 12-3PM and 6 to 9 PM are the peak times that people are on their phone or interacting with content. 

.





.

Have any other helpful tips? I would love to hear your feedback and your review of how using these strategies and tips help to your business this month.
