5 social media tips to…
Boost your Following on Instagram
- Post quality IGTV videos consistently.
IGTV videos are 400 times more likely to receive views, as compared to a standard picture or video.
- Create saveable posts.
The new Instagram algorithm looks at the number of people saving your posts. Create content people will want to save and look back at later.
- Be involved on your social media platforms.
The social media algorithm favors accounts that respond to comments immediately and are actively and consistently involved. You are more than likely to get a boost in the feed if you remain connected and social.
- Use hashtags correctly.
Use hashtags on every single post and use 5 or less on each one. Check to make sure that your post averages the same amount of likes/saves as the top post on the explore page. Use uncommon hashtags to avoid your post falling to the bottom of the explore page.
- Create carousal posts.
Adding multiple pictures to a single post creates a carousal effect and the more that your followers swipe between pictures it counts as activity and boosts your feed.
