7 tips for getting more likes and followers on Instagram

We explain what to do!

Are you passionate about Instagram and would you like to reach 1,000 followers and get the number of likes for your photos to skyrocket? But does your account simply not take off despite all your efforts? Are your loyal admirers limited to just your best friend and your brothers and sisters? Don't panic: we can help you.

Thanks to our tips and tricks, you'll be able to easily increase the number of followers and likes on your Instagram account. Ready? Then follow these 7 steps to the letter and in the blink of an eye you'll become one of those famous accounts which every Instagram addict just has to follow.  We promise, you won't be disappointed!

  1. Define a subject

    The accounts that attract the most subscribers generally deal with just one subject. In this way, the people following your account are guaranteed of seeing images linked to subjects that interest them instead of photos that are irrelevant or taken at random. The most common subjects are food, sport, animals and fashion.

  2. Post your photos at the right time

    Post regularly, but not too often. You should not expect members to follow you if you don't post anything. On the other hand, by bombarding them with images too often, you risk polluting their news feeds and making them flee.  The timing of your posts is also fateful: so make sure you take your subscribers' habits into account.

  3. Take beautiful photos

    Take photos which speak to people and are pleasing to them. Try to produce photos that are unique and arouse emotion. Preferably use natural light to ensure better photos, and show your face: this will enable you to increase the number of likes by around 35%.

  4. Use the right filters

    The best filter is without a doubt ... no filter at all! You've probably already come across this hashtag: #nofilter. Nevertheless, if you really insist, be aware that the most effective filters are Willow, Valencia and Sierra. 
    The other filters generate the opposite effect by reducing the number of likes and, by extension, the number of subscribers.

  5. Create effective tags

    The more tags you indicate, the more likes you'll get. The recommended number of tags is 30, i.e. the maximum authorized by Instagram. Consider optimizing them by choosing the ones that are the most representative and the most used. Tags For Likes is a good tool to find out which hashtags are the most popular.

  6. Synchronize your account with your other accounts on the social networks

    If you use the social networks a lot, we advise you to synchronize your Instagram account as much as possible. This way, not only will you have a wider audience, but you might also amass new subscribers.

  7. Like and comment on other influential accounts

    One of the best ways of garnering likes and subscribers is to like and comment on as many photos as possible. With a bit of luck, those who don't yet follow you will start to like your photos in return. So don't hesitate to spend some time on the most influential accounts.
