Social media is already being used by billions of people from all ages worldwide. It is amazing how those sites connect people all over the globe whether you are a celebrity or a common person. If you are active on social media, one goal is to have as many friends and followers as you can so you will be able to draw more attention from other users to your profile and to the things that you are posting. If you post a status, you want people to like it or leave a comment. The same way when you upload a picture online. It is indeed overwhelming if you are getting a lot of response from many users.
Usually, if someone follows you on Instagram, you feel like you are obliged to follow them back. It is the normal response so you can increase your followers. But this is not always the case.There are some other ways on how to gain instagram followers without following others.
1. LIKE AND COMMENT OTHER USER’S POST
You can leave a comment and like posts of users whom you does not follow or users that are not your followers. What you can do is to search for a topic that interests you using the explore tab on Instagram.
Topics may vary from food, places, hobbies, clothes, fashion and a lot more.You will be given different results that you may check for your query. Or you can also view other users that may appear on your news feed through your followers. You may then start liking their photos. When you do, those people will receive notifications. The tendency is that, they will check your profile and may start following you.
2. USE HASHTAGS
When you post something, use popular hashtags that most people are using when searching. Make sure though that what you are using is relevant to what you are sharing.This will make your posts more visible and searchable. Use general or specific hashtags so your post won’t get lost.
3. MAKE PEOPLE AWARETHAT YOU ARE ON INSTAGRAM THROUGH THE USE OF OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA SITES
Instagram is connected to other similar social media networks like Twitter and Facebook. You can post on those sites through Instagram so your friends will be aware that you are using the site. This will encourage them to join the network and follow you. You may also add the URL of your Instagram profile page when you write a blog or an article online.
