1. Power Comments
This is a new technique and it’s being used by a lot of people & influencers these days. So let’s dive into it and learn about it how it really works, First off create a group of people that all comment and like each other’s pictures every time a post happens. You can add up to 32 in a Direct Message Group. Every time you post a picture you say POSTED in the group and all other people will like and comment on your picture, this is a fantastic way to do it because you can start a bunch of groups and you start getting a hundred comments and likes on a picture and this way engagement will increase and you will game the Instagram algorithm and Finally you post is going to end up on Explore page of Instagram and you will get a lot of followers and likes organically.
Keep your captions short and sweet, write a valuable caption. Don’t just say here’s my picture, use every single character you’re allowed to use and say something inspirational so that when somebody sees your pictures it’s not just a picture it’s actually something valuable they can read and then comment on because of the caption.This way you give them twice as many things and reasons to actually comment below because there’s a picture they have a reason to comment on the picture about the picture.
3. Fill in the Blanks
Every time you make a post in the caption use something that has blank space such as “your favorite food is …….?” People are going to comment because they want to answer and it’s also going to add a comment below.
4. Post Funny Photos
Post a funny picture and ask your audience to suggest a caption for the picture and the best caption poster will be given a free shoutout. This is the practice to increase engagements on your posts.
5. Ask Questions
Keep asking questions in captions or post picture that actually have questions in it like ‘how was your day?, what have you eaten today?’. This way people will be more likely to answer the question.
6. Use #Hashtags
Every single time you post a picture, use hashtags, people are going to come on your pictures because of hashtags. When somebody first likes your picture inside of Instagram feed the problem is that, that might be the last time they like one of your picture so what you should do every time you see somebody liked the picture that you’ve never seen that person before you go to their profile and like first three latest picture and then comment on their picture, this brings in the law of reciprocity and this way you both are doing something for mutual benefits and increasing the likings of each other.
7. Automated Software
Using automated software which you probably heard, you use the software as what the software does is instead of you having to go like pictures all day and comment on pictures all day the software does it for you it takes your profile stays within the guidelines of Instagram so it doesn’t harm your account and it actually comments hundreds of times a day on pictures according to the half size you choose in your niche and the like thousands of pictures a day what’s this do or this put you inside the newsfeed of thousands of people a day bringing thousands of people to your profile they can follow you.
