How to promote your Instagram account

Updated: Feb 20, 2020

Beautiful and well-chosen pictures are very important. But sometimes high-quality content is not enough.

Let's see what is good and what is bad for ur Instagram account promotion.

Good: hashtags. Set hashtags that are directly related to your post, instagram will offer you the most popular of the selected ones. In addition, there are hashtags that help increase the followers: #instafollow, #l4l (Like for like), #tagforlikes и #followback

Bad: too many hashtags or even if your post contains hashtags only. If you post a random photo and set all possible hashtags from the most popular on the net and ending "like4like", it will kill ur account in notime. Noone likes to follow bots.

Good: be generous with likes and comments - this is the easiest way to attract new subscribers.

Bad: too many likes and meaningless comments. In the best case, you will look annoying and stupid, in the worst case, the system will ban you as spam.

Time matters. Studies have shown that it is best to post at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Good: follow users who use popular hashtags (#followme, #likeforlike), because many of them will follow you in response.

Bad: same as in the previous tip. Do not overdo it. If the number of your subscriptions is much higher than the number of followers, the system may ban you.

Good: only quality content! Your posts should be interesting and topical. For example, share a moccaccino recipe in winter, and in summer tell us how you make a watermelon smoothie.

Bad: try to cover absolutely all things in the world. Focus only on what is really close to you and your audience. You will look ridiculous if on your make-up themed account you start discussing the state of affairs in the Middle East.

Good: check ur bio. Complete it with appropriate words and hashtags, as well as provide a link to your site.

Bad: aggressive ads of your service, too many hashtags and links. Rememeber of spam!

Good: ask questions. This is a great way to get in touch with your target audience.

Bad: to make your audience work too hard. One question per week will be enough.

Post on Sundays. This day people post not mush, so your post will meet the maximum number of views.

Good: call to action. For example, ask to comment your photo or post.

Bad: ask it under ur each photo. It will be like begging.
