How to get more instagram followers







It's no wonder celebs get millions of Instagram followers: they're famous. But what about all those 20-year-old apparent nobodies who seem to get the entire internet's attention whenever they post? Lots of them are raking in cash, too. It's enough to make you despair at having to have a day job.
Well, there's more to cultivating an Instagram army than just being pretty and wearing nice clothes. Or owning the cutest puppy in a 3-mile radius. (NB: Those things help, we're not going to lie.) We're going to get our Instagram strategy mojo on. Want to join?
1. HAVE A UNIQUE HOOK

Sorry to break this to you: no-one really cares about your shots of slightly off-kilter buildings or pics of your dinner. Even your friends only like them so you'll carry on liking their similarly boring snaps. To get ahead what you need is an angle.
Upscaling Primark gear so it looks like catwalk fodder? An account for your 2-week-old pug? Or one dedicated to pictures of Shia LaBeouf sitting on toilets? All of these are potential winners, especially if you want to reach a circle outside of your friends. The ideal scenario is that your Instagram disciples will know a photo is yours because they recognise your style. They know you make £3 Primani sweaters look fierce, that Dibble the dog loves tummy rubs. Or that you're the weirdo with the LaBeouf obsession.
2. LIKE MORE PEOPLE'S PHOTOS, STUPID

To become an Instagram force of nature, you need to get some momentum going. And to get that you need more people to see your posts. The simplest way is to just like more people's stuff. Don't indiscriminately like everything you see. An 11 year-old could probably code you a bot to do that.
What you want to do is to like the stuff from people you want following you. But don't aim too high – Taylor Swift or Kim K probably won't start recognising your posts in the sea of 72 million followers just because you like a few of their selfies.
3. USE ONE OF THE SPECIAL HASHTAGS

There's no end to the hashtags you can glue onto your posts. However, a few special ones act as not-so-subtle begging tags to try to get people to follow you, like your posts or promise to like their posts if they do the same for you.
#L4L is "like for like", meaning you say you'll like posts of those who kick a bit of love your way. #follow and #followme are other top picks, their use being really quite obvious. Right? You might also want to use #photooftheday for your best shot at Instagram stardom each day.
4. MASTER THE HASHTAG (BUT DON'T ABUSE THEM)

Don't fancy begging? The key is to tailor tags that suit the actual post. People do actually use hashtags to find stuff, you know. What else you do you think they do on the toilet apart from playing Candy Crush?
Don't just spit out a random word that seems appropriate, unless it's also totes hilair. Hashtags are a language of their own, full of conventions and trends. A lot of obvious words work, like #cute, #happy or #fashion, but your best bet is to stalk a few successful Instagram accounts that do what you want to do, better, and then rip them off just a little bit. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? (Note: don't nick their pics, just their tags.)
