Do not wait to be found. Comment and above all you like what you like. To do this, click on the Discover button in the middle of the bottom menu bar of the Instagram app. Enter any word like “WOW” here and you’ll like it wild. Anyone who sees that he receives a comment or a like from a stranger becomes curious and often visits his page. With a little luck, the user in question will be your next follower. It is equally important to follow other profiles. If you like one person or like their photos, just become their follower. Most users thank in return with the same action.
Instagram is known for its hashtags. By placing a hash (#) in front of a word, the associated image is found in the search by that term. So write #Chip below your image, everyone will find the photo typing “chip” in the search.
Generally, when using hashtags, the more the better. However, you should be careful to use only current and useful hashtags and not to overdo it, since at some point the community labels them as “likegeil”.
Follow current trends. Even if you are not a big fan of words like “YOLO” and “SWAG”: such in-terms are often used and sought after by others. But there are also the evergreens among the hashtags. These include #instagood, #no filter and #photooftheday. They are used by the thousands every day and thus often searched. Enter a term in the search and see how many entries it has. So you can check the popularity of hashtags. With apps like “TagsForLikes” you get a variety of popular hashtags. You can copy them individually or equal to the whole package. The app is available for both Android and iOS. Not only use popular terms, but also describe what is shown in the picture with a few hashtags. In order for your plan to get more followers not too obvious, they should be at the beginning. Descriptive hashtags can be, for example, #food, #friends, #love, or #me.
You may have noticed that most hashtags are English. That’s because Instagram is used internationally. A #ich would only be searched in Germany, a #me on the other hand finds its finder in the whole world. Since most users write their hashtags in English, you should do the same.
