Liked Lab offers the most powerful Instagram growth service available, but there is even more you can do to grow your Instagram organically with REAL INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS. Learn how to get more real Instagram followers with these tips and tricks.
Here are our top 7 tips for supercharging your Instagram profile.
1. ENGAGE WITH YOUR FOLLOWERS.
After Instagram made some recent changes to their algorithm we noticed that profiles that engage with their followers gain far more traction on Instagram. It makes perfect sense, Instagram wants active users, not just people who post a pic once in a while and are otherwise silent. So when someone follows you go ahead and like some photos, make a genuine and specific comment on one of their posts. And when you post a photo or video make sure to like and respond to any comments. Making this part of your daily routine will ensure that Instagram shows your posts to more and more users, and in combination with Liked Lab marketing, thats going to help boost your following by leaps and bounds.
2. PAY ATTENTION TO THE LOOK OF YOUR WALL.
Give your new followers something to fall in love with. Don’t just post random photos with all sorts of different styles, think like an art director and pay attention to how your posts relate to one another. First choose a “look” for your posts… this can be a color theme or a certain filter. From now on stick to that look for all your posts. Then start thinking about your posts in groups of 3, 6 or 9. You can even use an app like Planoly.com that allows you to create a layout for your wall and then schedule your posts accordingly. And you don’t need to upload your related posts all at one time, but just often enough that most of the time people are seeing a curated and art directed wall when they visit your profile.

3. CREATE YOUR OWN UNIQUE HASHTAG, AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO USE IT TOO.
This is great for businesses and influencers as a way to build community and get great content to repost. Create a hashtag that has specific purpose. Something related to your niche that is fun or thoughtful and will have appeal to others in your niche. If it’s clever enough, and with your encouragement, other users will start posting the hashtag too. And then you can repost with proper credit, making your followers feel valued and giving your Instagram another source of great content.
5. MAKE A CONTEST OR GIVEAWAY.
If you have something you can give away for free, run a contest. People love free stuff! You can have your followers repost on of your images and tag you in the caption. Or maybe ask them to use your unique branded hashtag on their own images. Soon you will see your Instagram getting viewed and followed by many more users than you thought possible.
4. GET YOUR OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWERS TO FOLLOW YOU ON INSTAGRAM TOO!
Maybe you have Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or a blog. Chances are those followers are not also following you on Instagram. Don’t be shy, ask them to! Share a tweet or Facebook post asking them to follow you on Instagram and gain a quick boost and a more complete community.
5. ASK YOUR FOLLOWERS TO DO SOMETHING.
People are more likely to do something if you ask them to do something. Post a quote and then ask them to “like” it if they agree with it. Share something funny and ask your followers to tag a friend!
6. TAG THE LOCATION OF YOUR PHOTOS.
Post a photo of a great new restaurant or cool city you just visited, and tag it! Now other users who tagged the same place may follow you since you have something in common.
7. STUDY WHAT YOUR FOLLOWERS LIKE.
Look through your photos and see which ones get the most likes and comments. Now you know what kind of posts to make in the future.
