Instagram has become much more than an online collection of images and videos. It has expanded (and will continue to do so) into a business platform that has an immensely global reach.
To answer your questions about Instagram automation and how your account can be as successful as that of this and that influencer and/or business you follow, learn about expert-verified Instagram growth strategies.
1. Partner With A Growth Service Company
We know, we know. You don’t want to spend out of your pocket to get your Instagram account up and running. But surveys reveal that there’s a definite difference when you entrust social media and networking growth to professionals.
Instagram automation can be done by setting up algorithms that will produce genuine results. You’ll avoid gaining a massive number of pseudo followers that only add to numbers but not to authenticity.
This isn’t just a numbers game. If you want your account to stand out, real interactions and engagement have to be present and constant, and yes, high in number. Letting a growth service company take charge instead of relying on bots will definitely bring you closer to the latter.
They’re also expertly skilled in making sense of analytics and optimization. Something we’ll tackle in detail on another post.
2. Engaging Content
Although your Instagram growth service provider will write-in automation that can produce regular posts as often as possible (through AI, of course), it’s still advantageous to come up with your own additional content that’s more personable than merely informative.
It’s already been tried and tested— content that’s there for the sake of keyword stuffing may generate views in the beginning. Yet when it comes to sustainability with regards to followers, interactions and engagement, that’s where the line is drawn.
True, keyword researching and optimization are to be employed consistently. This has never been out of the question. All we’re saying is that it pays to produce content that isn’t generic. Let your creativity spread its wings, even with a simple image or Instavideo.
Many think this to be too old-school. In reality, hashtags haven’t lost their mojo. They still work! They aren’t magic words wherein adding as many relevant hashtags will instantly generate a million authentic views, likes, and comments. No such magic exists in the world of social media. Or just in the world, in general.
Again, bots can manipulate those numbers for you but they won’t get converted into an increase in sales. Not even the “potential” of an increase in sales.
Not to veer off-topic, but be sure to take note of quality hashtags. Studies show that a combination of hashtags AND location tags render optimal upshots. You’ll have to be patient regarding this. Additionally, although a maximum of 30 hashtags is allowed, it’s best not to hit that number.
In fact, it’s been said that half of that is already pushing it, and somewhere around 10 is the sweet spot. There’s no set answer for this so go nuts with hashtag experimenting. Generic is fine but going niche will reach your target audience better, and quicker.
