POSTED ON: November 25, 2019 by Social Motion

Growing your Instagram account to increase followers and likes per photo can be a daunting task if you don’t know what you are doing. Here are five tips to guide you to maximize your reach and set you on the road to success!


Instagram themes are not just a trend. It’s all about visual consistency. If you are using a specific filter for your photos, stick to this filter. Always make sure that you apply the same colour schemes and layout for all your posts. 

Post regularly

To build your following, it is key to post regularly (daily if possible) and stick to a schedule. Your followers will expect and become accustomed to viewing your posts at certain times. Every post is an opportunity to gain new followers. It has been found that accounts that are more active and post on a regular basis, gain followers quicker.


Perfect Timing

To gain the best reach, it is key to schedule your posts at times when your audience is most active. It is said that the best time to post on Instagram is between 9am – 11am EST. Keep a close eye on the times you get the most engagement and try and stick to these times where possible. 


Hashtags are a valuable tool to gain more awareness and reach for your account. Users can follow certain hashtags that will be displayed in their feed. Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags and we suggest you use between 15-30. Just make sure all hashtags are relevant to your account. If you are not sure which would be most suitable, do a bit of research to see what your competitors are doing.


Like hashtags, you can also follow a geotag. Geolocations are gathered from your physical location, based on where your mobile phone is when you create a post. This is a great way to attract potential followers in your area.


These are just a couple of tips to help you maximize your Instagram account’s reach and gain followers. If you are unsure if Instagram will work for you – Contact Us today to find the best social media platform for your business.
