I just got one question to ask all of you.. “Why is Instagram followers so hard to get?” I mean is it that challenging to get a couple persons to follow you? I know most of you wonder the same thing or some of you easily get followers (i don’t know). Lets do a back track For my experience with instagram, I’ve joined for almost two years now. In 2013 when i first got my samsung tablet it was the first app i downloaded because at the time i had a blackberry phone which don’t have a google play store. When i got the app i promoted myself on Facebook and Twitter because i wanted followers. In a month i gain 1.3k+. It reached a point where i got over the board with getting addicted to instagram, I connected to facebook and follow everyone who had an instagram and twitter.
Couple months passed i started to compete with persons to see who can make 50+ followers a day and trust me i got more than 50+ followers a day. everyone at school kept asking what’s my secret (i’ll be like “ohh all i did is give shoutouts for shoutouts.) But truly i went home for hours on instagram going through persons following list, done tons of shoutouts, likes for likes, follow for follow, putting it in the bio of every sites i joined and etc lol i did a lot in 2013. I continued this addiction in 2014 my life was just all about instagram well facebook but not touching that story maybe a next time lol I was such a social media freak! But anyways in 2014 it got real bad i was barely uploading pictures because of school and exams so my followers barely had pictures to like so that was a bit disadvantage for me. All i still wanted was followers to defeat my friends but little i know i needed pictures for persons to like so i cheated i downloaded a app to get followers and tons of likes. I lost my grip on instagram in early april because Internal Assessment became a load of s**t.
However after exams in may my tablet crash (i cried) all that i worked for was gone and what’s more sad about this is that you can’t upload your pictures from your PC (bummer) i couldn’t use instagram no more at this point i was almost at 4k just 300 followers away. At this time i asked my bestfriend to control my account but instead he let me lost a lot of followers because i had more than him so i asked my boyfriend all he did was give himself shout outs :/ (hate them both).
I’m telling you all this because i had followers but now they’re all unfollowing day by day and i want to know how to get genuine followers who will like and comment. I was thinking about starting over but i then again ill lose all my followers which i don’t
want to lose.
I read on blog.hootsuite.com that The key to getting more followers and likes on Instagram is posting really amazing content. For followers to continue coming back and double-tapping your photos, they need to be confident that you will be consistently putting up high-quality photos and interesting captions. However, giving your audience what it wants to see doesn’t mean you have to post the same kind photos over and over again… let’s be real, it can be a bit boring. Switch up your angles and subjects while keeping true to the brand you established
Any other thoughts of how to gain more followers than you already have??
