“How can I gain followers, and keep them?”
“How can I tell who unfollowed me or didn’t follow me back?”
I’m going to answer all of these questions!
I’ll start off by saying while 10k followers may seem like a lot, it’s really not. I’m still wanting to gain followers every day!
I really started wanting a lot of followers about a year and half ago, and it’s taken that long for me to reach this point. This does not happen over night. I wanted followers at that time to be able to have promotional posts for companies and that will be an entirely different post. While I still do the promotional posts, I want followers now so that I can get publicity to my blog. Chances are you are wanting this as well, or for completely different reasons!
The first thing you need to do is download a few apps to keep up with your followers.
There’s TONS of apps that basically do the same thing. Allow you do see your new followers, who unfollowed you and if you’re still following them, who’s not following you back, and who you’re not following back.
My favorite is Followers + Pro
Now, how to get more followers, this is the part that takes time!
You’ll need to find a big Instagrammer in your niche that has a bunch of followers, click on there followers and follow them! *you can only follow 160 per hour*
Now sit and wait. I would usually check back the next day and unfollow anyone that hadn’t followed me. Then start all over again. Keep in mind you can only follow 7500 people total.
You can also search for big brands in your niche and look for followers that way. For example my Instagram is focused around my children, so I would search for Gerber, and Babies R Us. If your niche is makeup, search for MAC, Covergirl etc.
Now you have some followers, how do you keep them?
You’re going to have people unfollow you, and that’s ok!! Oh well!!
Make sure to post often, strive for 1-2 times per day (even I have trouble doing this).
Make sure your pictures are nice! Mine are not the best, they’re taken with an iPhone. It’s ok.
The more followers you have, the more you’re going to gain without doing much work.
Thanks for taking the time to read!!
