Free Instagram followers
#1 Follow unfollow technique
some things that follow unfollow technique doesn’t work anymore, But they are wrong. I have personally tried and built two IG accounts with more than 10,000 followers.
#2 Asking for mutual helping
You can ask for mutual following in facebook groups. This is how I do. I join FB groups like Share your blog post, Travel Bloggers, Blogging Network, Bloggers Funda and I post a link to my IG account on these group asking for mutual follow. And trust me it works. No one is giving anything extra, You follow him or her and in return, you get a follow back.
#3 YouTube shoutout
If you have a YouTube account. Then it is cool, If not then too it is cool to ask your friend for collaboration on a video on his channel. This way both of you get exposures and exchange your followers. Tell him to give a shoutout at the end of the video to follow you on IG.
#4 Blog forums
Do join blog forums which are related to fashion, food and travel. IG is not for tech bloggers. It may work, But not as much as a fitness or beauty expert will do. Join a forum and remain active for at least one week, comment and like other’s posts. In most of the forum, when you comment on posts your social media profile will be visible to other forum members and that’s how you get a chance to your IG profile.
#5 Post regularly and frequently
This is the most important step you need to do on any social networking site whether Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Posting daily on regular basis creates an impact on your IG account. It gets more exposure any and more people see your profile and more people follow you.
This rule again applies to any social media. Use appropriate hashtag to reach more targeted audience.
#7 Show off
Instagram is for those who want to show off. Show off anyway by creating contents on funny or cute things which get immediate attention.
#8 Analyse your IG account
Many loss potential followers due to generality and lack of uniqueness. Stand out from others who are your competitors. Create more content short videos if pictures are not working for you.
Connect your all social accounts links in profiles or in about section. This can be done easily on FB and Twitter and YouTube.
If you have a blog, conduct a giveaway for your visitors. Tell them to follow you and share your giveaway post to others. The winners will be selected randomly from the list of followers. This is not totally free btw. But, giving away your old reviewed product to your followers is not a costly at all.
