Instagram is the next big thing after Twitter and Facebook. For Nigerians, it’s a way to connect, reach out or even for business. But to explore Instagram to the fullest, there is a need to have more followers.
There are many tips to get more followers on Instagram but I will only discuss 10 here.
1.) Use an appropriate profile photo
The type of profile photo you use has a long way to go on who follows your profile. A snake head, scary photo scares most Nigerians away.
2.) Follow prominent Nigerian celebrities
They usually have many fans. All you need is a share of them. Mention their names, follow their fans and you can get a follow back.
3.) Link your Facebook account to Instagram account
Link your Facebook to Instagram and vice-versa. I have over 5000 friends on Facebook and up to 2300 are on Instagram. Most of my Nigerian Instagram followers are from Facebook because 80 percent of my Facebook friends are Nigerians.
4.) Follow back
When people follow you on Instagram, simply follow them back. Many may likely unfollow people who do not follow them. More so, having a page where you follow people back, is a magnet for potential followers. Nigerians loved to be followed back on Instagram.
5.) Update on a regular basis
Don’t just check Instagram for gossips and pictures. Upload your photos too. Don’t make your Instagram dormant.
