12 Instagram tips nobody tells you

Best Instagram tips

** The success of your Explore page is determined by your consistency and community. Many people say to develop original material, but this is a mistake because the explore page ranks relatable and comparable information. As a result, you must improve information for the same topic and then maintain consistency. Then you should create original material. As an example, Most meme pages post viral memes, even if they are old, at first because it helps with reach and then after they reach a certain level. They begin to upload original memes.

** Instagram Live is the most effective way to increase your following. The majority of people overlook Instagram Live, although it is the finest. Celebrities and large influencers accept requests to join at random from their fans. As a result, the majority of individuals are willing to add others to Instagram Live. That is why, when other creators in your field go online, you should do the same. Join them and ask to be added, or connect with them in DMs and then go live on a specific day. Instagram live is a great strategy to gain quick followers since users will click on your Instagram account right after joining if you drop value in the live.

** Instagram hashtags work best on single images. After studying 1000+ posts, all we can say that hashtags work best on single images and multiple image posts (carousels) rank better on explore page.

** Use Instagram hashtags, according to number of likes on your last 5 posts and number of likes on hashtags top 5 posts. If the difference is bigger than 50-70, then the hashtag is not optimised for your post. As, you don’t have the amount of engagement required for hashtag.

** Create IG groups with your creator friends and loyal followers because that will help you with your content style. They will tell you what they liked about your new posts and what is missing. But they will join only if you show them that they are important to you and mean something.

** Instagram reels go viral when you follow formats. Every niche on Instagram have a format for reels. You can easily notice that when you scroll through Reels. Research and find that format, then create Reels consistently within that formats with value.

** Instagram IGTV is dead, you will end up getting less engagement. Instagram has neglected this feature as you can see their is no updates and news regarding this feature.

** Collaborations are must! We all know organic reach on Instagram is a problem but we think building connections with other creators and then collaborating for posts will help you a lot. While shout-outs don’t seem to work, collaboration posts can help your account grow 500+ followers daily. So, collaborations are must!

** Instagram bio is better when it’s short because then people will move to your posts section faster and that posts will make them follow you not that long bio.

** Make your content easy to understand for even a 10 years old child. Then, always make your caption focus on the reader like use “you” instead of “I” because “I” makes people feel they are out of conversation and it’s not about them.

** To keep your account safe, run Instagram ad for one-time because you will get access to Facebook business help centre and then you can talk to Facebook employee if something is wrong with your Instagram.

** Consistency is really important because on most of the accounts I saw that posts started reaching more people through home when I was consistent.
