How To Grow On Instagram
How to grow on Instagram ?
Five things you should know.
First of all, if you have any question that you want to ask me you can come in the comment section down below or do what most of the people are doing, hit me up on Instagram with DM and I’ll try to help you. I’m actually trying to provide some free tips to some of you guys. I’m really happy that one of you guys are approaching me especially in the last two weeks since we’re uploading on a heavier schedule and also don’t mind me when I reply with audio text right? I can’t always type on my phone.
My digital marketing agency. DrNiki.Co has a lot of paid services,like one month is Ross open till 1,but I’m trying to help you guys out for free. Not just on YouTube where everybody sees I’m helping you but also in the DMs.
Maybe I’ll reply a little bit slower sometimes but I’ll try to get back to you.
So the first thing you should know and what most people think about is follow-unfollow. Is it worth it? Does this method work?
It was a really funny method, I heard about it for the first time two years ago. When I wasn’t really doing this DrNicki thing, it was a gaming channel years ago, but that’s another story, as I had my business and I was just doing some gaming videos as hobby l but I was watching this show on TV and it was casting for influencers. It was kind of weird. It was for people for my country and they asked the influencer, it was an average Instagram model and they asked her
“what do you plan to do regarding your Instagram growth?”
And she says
“I’m thinking about scrolling through my Instagram and following people and they follow me back on Instagram.”
This was genius Instagram strategy, you know and the weirdest thing is, it worked for a couple of years.
If you think about it, it’s not such a stupid idea, you follow people, but not just random people, but people who like someone in the same niche so, if you follow them, they might check your profile and if they like it they might follow you.
Since they are in the same niche, the people that were following, there’s a good chance that you get a high quality audience.
Many influencers did that specially when growing niche pages to do 5000 followers, because after 5000 followers some case study show that you are more likely to hit explore page, rank include hashtags. And the whole Instagram growth strategy on how many pages is just targeting hit the explore page.
So does it work today ?
Forget about it, man forget about follow unfollow right now. Just forget it erase it from your mind. Okay? You had it in your mind right, forget about it. After this video, okay ?
Because I’ll tell you why its bad but after that forget about it. Why, because, Instagram as you can see, will greet you with this message if you’re doing it.
So if you’re following a bunch of people, then you get full of oftencan’t follow anyone.
Maybe you won’t even be able to like anyone’s photo, comment on this photo. It’ll be even funnier if you get shadow banned for I t. I mean and also looks pretty bad on your side when you’re following 3,000 people and you have 200 followers, right? Even if you’re not following them back and better yet, If you unfollow all of them at the same time, guess what – you’re shadow banned. So follow unfollow is a bad idea, In my opinion. Am I even supposed to have an opinion? I don’t know but I’m presented, by the way, this video is not financial advice, I’m doctor Niki, but I’m not actually a real doctor so this is no medical advice either.
From what you can see on Instagram profile. I removed all my ghost followers so I was from few hundred followers to 400 in around forty days. And as you can see here I’m not following anybody . Why I’m not following anybody? It goes to the second point and this is ghost followers.
I have dedicated a video about it as you can see in the link here, but ghost follower are people who did not engage your content for example, for the last 20 or 50 post. Engaging your content means liking or commenting or sharing or whatever. Why don’t you want them on your Instagram page ? The way Instagram presents posts, first they’re not presenting them in a chronological order, they present them depending on your interest and what happens when you post something, it goes to the top followers you have, for the fraction of the followers you have, the engage to it and it gets presented to more and more people.
If you have 100 000 followers and and ninety thousand of them- fake, what happens is it might get presented to the fak e followers or to a huge percentage of the fake followers. They won’t engage. So your real followers won’t get to see that, you’re going to get buried I mean, so if you want to have fake followers and buying followers- be my guest.
And the reason why I’m not even following anybody on my Instagram business page is because when I follow a page or what the bots actually do, the first strategy is follow unfollow and start following me just because engage Gary Vee who is in my niche without Amway Lamer. Is that even a word femur? I know it sounded lame.
So what you want to do is remove ghost followers in my opinion, but I’m not supposed to have an opinion, but if you want to hear the full version of the ghost followers video, as I said, you should check that video out, it’s in my channel, it’s in the cart above.
Okay, so now- the third tip. Engagement groups.
You probably heard about engagement groups and you can see an engagement group here and this engagement group is on telegram. What it does is you like the post of the 30 people above you and the next 30 people like your post. Why is this sometimes good? You have a good engagement rate and it really helps to get on hashtags. You also need saves and other algorithm triggers. But at least it’s free.
You don’t want to go too deep into it like only relying on it. And also you shouldn’t fall into the trap of thinking that your post is so good, but you the only think you need is the right timepost. Because sometimes you’re not getting the engagement because you’re post to be honest sucks, its really bad. Maybe your content sucks.
What do you need to do first is fix your content, have higher quality content and then think about the promotion you will do.
Forth thing people use is power likes.
And don’t confuse them with bot likes like buying a thousand likes for one or two dollars, do not do that.
Power like is basically engagement points where you get like from real accounts with all the followers who engage in your Are they good ?
Good study show they have results. So it’s in your opinion if you would use them. I have some options on my website regarding power like but again, the main thing you should concentrate on is your content. If you have good content and you’re consistent with it. You will get results.
Fifth thing you should know and we kind of started talking about it in the beginning of the video is the value of engagement. On Instagram is king.
Okay, content is king but engagement is a second king or maybe the King’s son or maybe content was the king that nobody wanted, engagement is real king. I don’t know. This is beside the point.
The point I’m making is engagement helps you get your post in front of the eyeballs of the follower that you already acquired and also helps you rank on hashtags. So you can reach the followers you want in your own and maybe hitting the explore page once in a while? Why not?
These are the five tips I wanted to go over in this video. But also I wanted to warn some of you guys regarding the new Instagram update where you get locked following that many people.
I want to say that there’s a key study from one website that you can do around 6,000 per 30 days and get away with it. Everything above that gets you penalized and gets you the block. So if you do 200 per day, you’re good .
Is this a good idea? I don’t know. Would I use it? I’m not using it as you can see my Instagram profile. Am I using it on some of the other pages that I’m growing? I want to use it current on the 21stof June 22ndwhen you see this video.
But If you guys liked this video, make sure to give this video a like, and you should know this really motivates me to keep up with this content a few times every single week.
I’ve actually tried to do three videosa week when I see some questions you have in comments and DMs even though I waste my time answering them the fact is I don’t feel like I’m wasting time. I feel like I’m connecting with you guys.
