10 Secrets To Get More Likes & Traffic On Instagram
Here are some excellent super growth hacks to get the very most out of every Instagram post you publish.
1. Every time you post, like all the comments on your previous post.
What this does is alerts people to your new post as well bringing a whole new level of traffic to your current post.
2. Always put your @name in the caption.
People are more likely to click through to your profile page instead of scrolling up. This brings more traffic to your profile and potentially your profile link.
3. Like all the photos in your feed
When you are browsing Instagram just like every single image you see. This increases your chance of getting people coming through to your photo or your profile.
4. Make your captions like little stories
The copy in the caption should enhance the graphic itself and give your audience another reason to like your post, comment or visit your profile.
5. Connect Instagram to your Facebook and Twitter profiles
This means you’ll get more people from those other networks clicking through to your photo or your profile.
6. DM people as often as you can to say hello and share something useful or entertaining
Nothing beats a personal connection. Comment on something in their feed so it’s clear that you have seen their content.
7. Post at peak times
If you have a business account check the insights section on Instagram and make sure to post at times when most of your followers are online. You can use a tool like Buffer to schedule your posts.
8. Post quality images
This sounds obvious but make sure that your posts are not low-res or grainy – if they are they had better tell a strong story or be super unique.
9. Use relevant hashtags
You should use the maximum number of hashtags and they should be as relevant as possible to the photo, story and caption that you are publishing. To learn more about hashtags click here.
10. Like 10-20 posts that have the same hashtag as your latest post
What this does is alert those people that are interested in the same topics as your latest post and increases the chance they will return the favour and like or follow you back.
