More real followers on Instagram: here’s how
To collaborate with companies and brands and become an influencer, numbers do matter. For this reason we have already extensively dealt with methods and tips to improve statistics, for example by increasing the number of likes or followers you have on your profile. However, there is another important factor: followers must interact and therefore no fakes and bots. Today we talk about how to increase the number of real followers on Instagram .
Why is it important to have real followers?
We have to start from here, because no doubt you are asking yourself this question. Well, numbers are numbers, we all know that, and they count anyway. However, as we saw in our article on how to find brands to collaborate on Instagram, what drives companies to seek collaborations with influencers is the fact that through their profiles they can reach a large pool of followers who can buy the promoted products. It goes without saying that these profiles, however, must be real and active, otherwise the collaboration is useless. This obviously does not mean that we should go and check profile by profile to make sure that our followers are real, but maintaining an active, healthy and maybe even geo-localized catchment area is certainly more tempting to the companies we contact as well as making our profile and content more effective.
That’s why having real followers pays off and is one of the best strategies for being successful on social media.
5 tricks + 1 to get real followers on Instagram
Now that we have made this brief introduction we can move on to tricks and strategies to get real followers .
Create custom hashtags
There are hashtags that are more effective than others, but sometimes you have the impression of ending up all in one big cauldron. The most famous and often used hashtags are the battlefield of bots and fake profiles that follow in bursts with the hope of a follow in return. Creating and using your own hashtag, perhaps alongside the trendiest ones, makes it possible for you to gradually create a following that is actually interested in the content we create, which thus has a way to “tune in” with everything we post. In addition, the original hashtags are more difficult for bots to intercept, so we get double the efficiency.
For a panorama like the Italian one the real profiles are strongly localized . An Italian profile that speaks Italian tends to have a follower pool of the same nationality, and depending on the topics covered, perhaps even from the same region or city. This is why it is always important to geolocate your content: in this way it will be seen by locals or people who are looking for information about that place, and we would have the opportunity to be followed by actually real profiles.
Using localized hashtags
In line with the previous point, it is also good to locate the hastags used . This can be done by making sure you combine Italian hashtags with the usual international ones and then also using the place and country tags.
Study the most convenient times for your audience
If you want to get real followers on Instagram you must also think about the hours of your target and plan your publications accordingly: if you publish at 4am in Italy you will have little hope of being seen by Italians. However, if your target audience is Brazilians maybe, or Americans, then it makes sense. Consult an international timetable and always make sure you get the right time, it’s worth it.
Reply, reply, reply
There is nothing more powerful than a repost: create contacts and friendships, start chats and private messages or comments, help all the profiles involved to make themselves known. So our advice can only be: use the repost of stories and posts and you will not regret it. Obviously, always do it wisely, selecting content from profiles similar to you or interesting for your followers. If you talk about basketball you will hardly be successful by placing a content on flowers. Always keep on topic and you won’t go wrong.
