How To Get Followers On Instagram

Instagram profile for John Sparks

Ever wonder how to get followers on Instagram like the pros?  Follow these 5 Secret Tips:

1. Mention your “following guidelines” in your Instagram bio. Here’s an example: “Follow People Who Follow Me!” It’s important to let users know why they should follow you. If you don’t, they won’t. It’s just that simple!

2. Follow users who are likely to follow you back. Go to the explore tab of your Instagram app. It looks like a compass. Hit the magnifying glass in the upper right. Click on tags. Search for pictures containing one of the following tags:

#shoutout #shoutouts #shout #out #TagsForLikes #TFLers #shoutouter #instagood #s4s #shoutoutforshoutout #shoutout4shoutout #so #so4so #photooftheday #ilovemyfollowers #love #sobackteam #soback #follow #f4f #followforfollow #followback #followhim #followher #followall #followme #shout_out.

Locate the most recent pictures inside these tags which appear as screenshots of users’ profiles. Most recent pictures are towards the top. Choose a picture from a user’s profile which has been posted by a “shout-out” account. These accounts normally have the words “shout-out” as part of their profile name. Go into the “shout-out” account. Make sure it has less than 200 followers. Then click to view the followers. Follow as many as you can. Watch as these users start to follow you back! Repeat this process for even more followers.

3. Keep your account right-side up, not upside down. To show you know how to get followers on Instagram like the pros, you want more “followers” than “following”. Give users you follow a certain number of days to follow you back. If they don’t, you flush them. InstaFollow and JustUnfollow are two great smartphone apps which will locate and flush your unfollowers. They are both free and available in the iOS and Android market.

4. Post new pictures. Change tags on your pictures regularly. Post at least one new photo a day. Download the “TagsForLikes” or “Instatags” smartphone apps to put tags on your pictures. See the article: “How to Use Instagram: 25+1 Steps to Get 100 Likes In Just Minutes” to learn how to change your tags to get even more, new followers.

5. Use Instagram during peak traffic times. Use Statigram to find out your peak traffic times. Click on Statistics on Home Navigation menu. Then click on Optimization on the left sidebar to check out the best times to post.

Edit Pictures Online: 5 Tips For Instagram Likes

Edit pictures online and get even more “Likes” on Instagram!  How do you do this?  Simple.  Use a free photo editor like Pixlr, PicMonkey, or PhotoScape.

Pixlr is our favorite choice. Why?  It’s web-based and available for Free Download. You can find Pixlr on iOS iPhone, iPad. You can also find it on the Android, and Google Chrome.

The Pixlr desktop version has more functionality than the mobile app. The mobile app still allows you to accomplish everything you need to do to edit and post photos on the fly.

Use Pixlr to edit pictures online immediately after you take them. Next, save these edited pictures back to the gallery or share them on the social media network of your choice.

5 Tips to Edit Pictures Online to Boost “Likes” on Instagram:

1) Adjust the contrast. Scaling up on contrast gives photos nice, rich character.

2) Adjust the brightness. Scale up and down on brightness for indoor photos taken without a flash.

3) Crop pictures. Start by taking out the extra head room. Next, make sure the only subjects in your pictures are the ones you are trying to capture. Some pictures won’t need to be cropped using Pixlr. When you upload any picture into Instagram, you’ll be required to crop it down to fit Instagram’s 612 X 612 Pixel size before you can post it.

4) Determine if adding text to your photos enhances them or detracts from them. A picture is worth a thousand words. Quotes, sayings, and words of expression are always a nice touch. Just remember not to add too many words. Less is more. Also remember, you’ll end up cropping the photo down again when you share it to Instagram. You want to make sure none of the text words you’ve added get cut off. If they do, you will have to edit the picture again before posting it.

5) Wait to add borders to pictures until they have been shared to Instagram. Remember the aspect ratio typically used by mobile device cameras is 4:3. This is a larger aspect ratio than the one used by Instagram. Once you have edited a photo using Pixlr you will crop it again with Instagram. Pixlr borders will end up getting cut off. If you want to use a border, it is best to add it once your picture is already in Instagram.

There’s plenty of Instagram Apps out there for just about anything you can think of. There’s Apps which can do everything from merging several photos together to apps which create beautiful pictures out of text.

But what apps should you have if you want to properly manage your Instagram account?   The best apps to help you manage your Instagram account will 1) flush unfollowers, 2) get more likes for photos, and 3) enhance the quality of the pictures you take before you post them.

How To Use Instagram and Flush Unfollowers

The best way to flush the unfollowers on your Instagram account is through an app like InstaFollow. Instafollow allows you to check for the users who don’t follow you back and will allow you to unfollow them. It will also allow you to mass follow users who are already following you, who you don’t follow back. This is important because in order to help establish your value in social media, the number of followers you have on Instagram should exceed the number you are following.

How To Use Instagram and Get Likes For Photos

One way to get more followers is to get more likes for your photos. You can do this with the #TagForLikes App. When you receive a notification a user has “Liked” your photo you can try to follow them and see if they will follow you back. See the related post on How To Use Instagram: 25+1 Steps to Get 100 Likes In Just Minutes for help on getting the most from this app.

How To Use Instagram and Edit Images

The way to get more likes and more followers is by having better quality pictures. Pixlr Express is the App to help you do this. Pixlr Express lets you take a picture with your phone or choose a picture from your gallery. Next, you can crop the picture, change its brightness or contrast, or add text.  The photos can be shared as text messages, emails, or over social media. Pixlr Express works well both with Instagram, or without it.
