This week’s podcast is a list of 15 ways you can grow your Instagram following.
This podcast came about when a group of us were talking about Instagram; several people were saying that try as they might, they couldn’t get their Instagram following to grow. I’ve had this conversation with several different people lately, but when the subject also came up within the WhatsApp group I run, I felt there might be a calling for a podcast on the topic!
If you try any of these tips I’d love for you to come back and let me know how you get on. As I mention several times in the podcast, everyone is different – and everyone’s audience is different. What works for me may not necessarily work for you – and vice versa.
A word on social media “success”
I think success in any social media comes from knowing who your audience is, and knowing what they want or expect to see from you. I don’t advocate joining like ladders or similar in order to gain followers as I believe these followers will not be part of an engaged audience who will care what you have to say; at best, they will skip over your posts on their newsfeed. At worst, they’ll quietly unfollow you two weeks after following. Either way, they serve only to artifically boost numbers, and will rarely form part of a long-term, engaged audience.
