It’s 2020 and let’s be real, social media can easily be considered as a sport these days. People love followers and want to gain as many as possible in our celebrity obsessed world! If you’re a musician who is looking for Instagram hacks to increase the number of your followers, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Although some techniques might revolve around having a high quality Instagram page where followers are organically grown based on interests and extensive networking, here at MusicPromoToday, we’ve found some easy and efficient ways that are proven to be effective for immediate results. Check it out below! 

1. Create your own theme

One way you can start is by having a theme. Choose something that defines you, something you’re really interested in, or a color palette you want to follow. Do your days revolve around wellness, fashion, music, traveling, animals, or food? These tend to be some popular themes on Instagram and one of them might be the perfect fit for you. If not, gear toward what fits your everyday routine and personality the best!  A theme can also be choosing one Instagram filter to dress up all your versatile photos. When doing so, your page will look even more appealing to newcomers resulting in them pressing that follow button!

2. Hashtag your photos

This one is one of those no brainer Instagram hacks! People tend to search hashtags to come across posts that interest them. This is how people casually find your photos and Instagram page. So for example, if you are recording a new song or want to show your fans behind the scenes of your creative process, you can do your own music marketing and include various key hashtags pertaining to music. This will grab the attention of passerbyers. And generally, they will give you a like and a follow if they like what you are posting in order to keep up with your future posts. 

3. Don’t bore your audience

OK, we all know that person who posts their Starbucks coffee cup, every single morning, while driving to work in LA traffic! PLEASE don’t be that person! Try to keep your page fun, interesting, and fresh with creative and new content of occurrences that take place in your life. Put yourself in the viewers shoes and think about what you’d want to see from this new cool Instagram page you’ve just found. If you post intriguing photos, people who already follow you will give you the likes you’re looking for. The more likes you get, the more likely you are to appear on the explore page which will allow others to find your page and ride along your journey as well.

    4. Post consistently

    Generally speaking, not a lot of people face the most interesting things on a daily basis to post on IG about. However, if your account is focused on one specific thing, like how we mentioned in hack #1, make sure you post daily and consistently within your theme. It’s a known fact that everyone obsessively refreshes and scrolls through their Instagram feed 24/7. Might as well give them something nice to look at, right? Always remember that if you put in the time and effort, you will for sure see the results you’ve been looking for.

    5. #Like4like & #Follow4follow

    Another quick and effective strategy to add to your list of Instagram hacks is to pick up followers is the idea of including #likeforlike or #followforfollow on your posts. Once you include this in your list of hashtags, as mentioned in hack #2, click on the hashtag “#like4like or #follow4follow and get busy liking everything you see regardless if the post pertains to your theme. You can even try commenting under some of the pics! The moral of the story is, and trust us this really does work, in about 10-15 minutes, you can get anything between 40 to 50 likes. Believe us, we’ve tried this. As your likes increase, so will your followers list. If you continue liking for an hour straight, we guarantee that your followers will increase.
