Ways to Increase Engagement with Your Instagram Followers

Nov 20th '19

Are you looking for ways to increase engagement with your Instagram followers? Want to generate more likes, followers and comments on your Instagram business account?


Here’s a quick summary:


  • Say Hi to new followers
  • Like a lot of photos
  • Connect people
  • Ask a question
  • Respond to all comments
  • Leave meaningful feedback
  • Include a call to action


  1. Say Hi to new followers

Go to their account, and leave a comment on what they are posting on their feed. This lets them know that you see and value them as part of your Insta community.


  1. Like a lot of photos

It is important to be active within the Instagram community. Looking for your idea client and finding those accounts who may not be searching for you through hashtags that you are using.


  1. Connect people

Like all social media platforms, connecting with users is not about follow for follow. It is about directing potential clients to another account because you truly think they have something to offer your own audience.


  1. Ask a question

Post without fear of getting no response. This may happen (it has to us), but ‘train’ your audience to interact with you. Questions can only require one or two word response are more likely to get answered.


  1. Respond to all comments

If you want an authentic Instagram following, you must acknowledge comments made by you community. Responding also makes users more likely to comment in the future and champion your brand.


  1. Leave meaningful feedback

Don’t be that person who scrolls through and comments with the same generic comment. Always be genuine when you engage with your audience.


  1. Include a call to action

Do you want users to click a link and read an article or find out more about your products? Get in the habit of telling your community what you want them to do, for example, ‘to find out more, click link on bio’. If you do not do this, then they will not know what to do and won’t do anything other than ‘like’ your photo.
