In any case, it’s super important to keep track of your Instagram Stories analytics to see what types of content your audience best responds to. As we mentioned earlier, when your stories get a lot of views and engagement, this signals to the algorithm that you’re creating high-quality content, so your future Instagram Stories will appear higher up in your followers’ stories queue.
Invite audiences to ‘find out more’ on Instagram: If you have a platform, like YouTube, for example, that’s really thriving with an engaged audience, you can use this follower-power to invite audiences to check out your Instagram feed, especially if you’re sharing something exclusive there. For example, if you are a fashion brand, you could share a preview of your new collection on YouTube and invite your viewers to check out the big reveal of the whole collection on Instagram Stories on a specific date.
Instagram users are active at all times of the day. However, there are a handful of optimal times to post on Instagram. For peak engagement, the best times to post are Mondays and Thursdays at any time except between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. This is for the time zone of your target audience. Many users tend to engage with more content during off-work hours on weekdays.
And if you don’t want to include your product, you don’t have to. Encourage your fans to create their own videos and collect them on your page like GoPro does. Or check out the most-followed brand Nike to see plenty of effective videos. This is a brand that has a really good grasp of what Instagram is all about: inspiring viewers by using powerful visuals that focus on the audience, not the product.
To get around this restriction, some businesses will frequently update their website link to send followers to their latest products or promotions — and then refer to that link in their Instagram captions. The problem is that Instagram’s photo feed is no longer chronological, so when a business’ post says “link in bio,” that link might not correspond to the actual link in their bio.
On your Instagram feed, you can like, comment, and message posts. You can also save them, using the ribbon icon in the right corner. When you tap it, you’ll see Save to Collection pop up along the bottom of the post. If the image or video you’ve saved falls into a collection, such as UGC content or inspiration, you can create a collection for that content.
Before you really start trying to boost them Instagram followers it’s a good idea to already have around 15 posts, this way when someone visits your profile they will see a full screen of photos and not just a small handful. GrabFreeFollowers recommends trying to post every day or two, this helps to keep your audience engaged with your profile. If posting every day or two is hard then use a tool like Later to schedule your posts.
If you’re still having trouble, another option is to research your competitors. Go to your competitors’ profiles and click on their “Followers.” You’ll be able to see the whole list of users who follow them. (Note: we don’t recommend simply going through this list and following each one. Instead, use this information to build a strategy to capture their attention organically).
