How to get more followers on Instagram? If you want to grow your Instagram, you probably know that you need to engage with people interested in your niche. The best way to find such people is to search for the most obvious hashtags within your topic. When you find your audience, you simply want them to notice you. Leaving candid comments is a crucial part of reaching for your own tribe!

Upgrade Your Comments to get more followers on Instagram!

What types of comments annoy you the most? Personally, I hate all the types of comments left by bots. And believe me, I can easily distinguish between an honest comment and a bot-generated one, at every turn. If you’d like to learn more about my experience with bots, read this post:ย Iโ€™ve been using Instagram bots and hereโ€™s my conclusion!

While bots are an absolute no-no, sometimes we may get or, what’s even worse, leave real comments which are even more annoying!

What are the things we should avoid?

Talking about yourself/your feed/your work instead of commanding the other person

Leaving a comment without reading the caption – what if there was a question?

Leaving too general and too short comments, like “cute” “nice” or comments with few emojis. They look like bot-generated!

Encouraging to visit your profile. Don’t do this. Please.

 

If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. This will make social media a better place! ๐Ÿ˜€

So, what can we do instead?ย I have a challenge for you!

Open your Instagram (now!) and spend 20 minutes to make new friends! Use hashtags to locate accounts of people that may want to follow you back. Comment on at least one of their photos, like few of their pictures, maybe send them a DM and tell them why they inspire you..?

But hey! Be candid! ๐Ÿ˜Š

That’s how you gain new, supportive followers! ๐ŸŽ‰ Remember, “it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality”

Please, tell me later in the comments if it worked for you! ๐ŸŒท So… what kind of comments annoy you the most? ๐Ÿ˜€

xoxo,
