Like Twitter, Instagram uses hashtags to help users find relevant content. Instagramers can search for certain hashtags to find photos that have been tagged with those terms.
Try to use popular hashtags in your posts, ensuring you tag the location of the shot or the subject if they’re recognisable. If you use hashtags like #F4F (Follow for Follow) other users will be more likely to add your account.
Follow popular users
Spend a few hours searching for relevant users to follow. If you’re posting on behalf of a business, this might include competitors, companies in related industries and businesses that could become clients in the future.
Once you’re following a good number of accounts, it’s time to get active and get noticed. Liking and commenting on other people’s pictures is a great way to attract followers to your account. Try to keep your comments positive if you want to attract users looking for genuine content.
Engage with your followers
If people comment on your photos, it’s important that you acknowledge their comment and interact with them as much as possible. The more you engage with your followers, the more personal their relationship with you will feel and the less likely they’ll be to delete your account.
