I’ve already discussed the best Instagram Growth techniques in an earlier post. This time I’d like to elaborate on the best Instagram growth service.

There is a reason why I decided to dedicate a post to this. Instagram growth services are essential to all Instagram users planning to make Instagram as a revenue channel.

This does not have to be necessarily selling on Instagram directly but if you think traffic from Instagram could be valuable for your website then keep on reading.

In my opinion the best value of a good Instagram growth service is time saving. To grow your account (and this is especially true for new accounts) you must be active. It’s not enough to post photos or other type of content. You also need to like other photos and follow relevant accounts. If you don’t think this is time consuming then you couldn’t be more wrong.

So unless you have nothing else to do and following and liking others is something you enjoy then and only then you might get similar results as an Instagram growth service.

Otherwise, this type of service is invaluable! But…. surprisingly it’s much more affordable than you could imagine.

Most good services charge $35-40 for the basic monthly plan and this is a very good start.

Nevertheless, this is not magic! You need to do some homework before you activate this service. You need to know and note a list of your competitors, accounts you’d like to target, hashtags that are relevant and so on. If you don’t know your audience they won’t either.

Assuming you do a good job (and it’s not that hard) you will see a spike in your daily followers and likes. It’s important to note that good services bring organic followers. That means they are followers that actually wanted to follow or like your photo. This also mean that if you decide to terminate the service your followers stay with you!

What do we use? We recommend Social Captain. To be clear: We are a partner of this service but we are also users! Believe me we tried several such services, all with good and bad attributes but we like the most Social Captain.

First, they have an amazing dashboard where you can tweak almost anything you could to set it up correctly.

And second, (and most important) they deliver results better than other services we’ve tried.

In the end of the day, you use Instagram and other social platforms to interact with your audience and Social captain seem to bring more people that interact with us. That is worth a lot!

What about the pro plans? well most of the services offer such a plan. In essence this is the same as the basic plan but on speeds… It costs $80-100 monthly depends on the service but… If you’re only starting you don’t really need it. You’ll be happy with the basic plan.

If you’re on Instagram you know how followers are important. If you’re not, then you should be. Growing your Instagram followers base not only validates that your account is popular and worth following but it also brings you more engagements. Comments and Likes are very important because they should others that your followers are engaged and engagement could mean $$$ down the road.

So how should you grow your Instagram followers base organically? Here are 15 ways for doing it. You don’t really have to choose, you can decide you want to try them all or just a couple.

  1. Consistency – It doesn’t really matter what your account is about but what’s important is to stay consistent. Don’t just jump from one subject to the other. It will only confuse your followers and that’s not what you want.
  2. Hashtags Research – Don’t just use hashtags with millions of posts. Your post might get lost in the clutter if you do. Instead try to find hashtags that are popular & active and where your post could actually be seen.
  3. Tagging – Look for  large accounts with many followers to feature you. Getting featured by a big account can lead to a spike in your followers. It is not a full-proof strategy but if you have quality content the chances are certainly higher. You could also do the same with tagging a list of your competitor followers who tend to engage with them regularly
  4. Engage with followers – They already follow you so you know they’re your fans (at least that’s the hope). If you engage with them on a regular basis they will probably share your account with their friends and followers. You can try tagging them in the comments of your posts. In return this will boost your posts with likes.
  5. Liking Other Photo – Try to find photos in your niche and like them. Even better if you go through the followers of your competitors and like their photos too. In return, they will probably like yours and engage with you.
  6. Similar accounts – same as above but instead of going through their list of followers you should try to reach out to them and try cross-promotion.
  7. Hashtags placement – Don’t just clutter your post. Use page breaks to make the post much easier to read.
  8. Incentives – Reward your followers with some discounts or freebies if you are selling a product. Of course you have to make sure you don’t just giveaway stuff. Ask for likes or other types of engagement. This strategy could bring lots of traffic to your account or website.
  9. Use stories – Right after posting a new photo upload the same one to a story with your account name and encourage people to engage with it. You will see that this strategy bring much more likes and followers than just posting.
  10. If your content is popular and re-posted by others then engage with the people who like it. Keep track of the people who liked it and convert them to new likes and followers on your account.
  11. Facebook Ads – First, this will yield the best results if you already created a group of loyal followers on instagram. Find the best post you had on instagram and boost it for $1 a day to a large audience in your target country.
  12. Sharing content – This really depends on the type of account you have because sharing other people content may not be relevant to you. If it is then this strategy will increase you account visibility and encourage people who want to be shared on your account to use your hashtag and tag you.
  13. Automation Tools – Find several competitor accounts with the followers you want and use an automation tool to engage with those people at a scale you can’t possibly do on your own. This will increase the chances they will be engaging back.
  1. S4S – Or Shout-Out For Shout-Out, Find accounts in your niche and ask them if they are interested in S4S. There are many forums and groups on instant messaging apps dedicated to that and this strategy, though a bit less straightforward, is proven.

There are obviously many other ways to increase your followers base but I believe that if you follow these steps you will genuinely and organically increase your followers base in no time. Just be consistent and good luck!
