STAY RELEVANT- POST 2 TO 3 TIMES EVERY DAY
You can’t grow your following count unless you post the content consistently. Stay relevant and post more often at least two to three times a day even on Sundays. Instagram has changed its algorithm and if you don’t post consistently, it may drop new followers. Don’t take breaks and post every day of the week. The consistent posting also caters a number of likes and comments because people always welcome new content and latest updates.
If your post could not manage to get engagement, it’s likely to disappear within a few hours. So you need to create engaging content that captures the eye of the viewer. Don’t make your post a distant memory. Stay alive in the minds of people by consistent posting. Try to post more on your days off because most of the people don’t post their content on that day, and your post gets more views and likes. When your post gets more engagement, it will secure the top place in the search results and explore tab.
MAKE SURE YOUR ACCOUNT IS ATTRACTIVE AND BRANDED
If your profile looks ordinary, people will not follow you even you are a skilled artist. Make your profile eye-catching and inviting to gain more followers. Your posts should be cohesive with your profile at least first 20 posts. Share posts that should have different picture composition (use negative spaces) to keep your account from looking messy.
When you are going to create a new post then look at your previous 10 posts and take note of the composition and color of these photos and make sure to create new posts with same color and composition. Your new posts should match with your photo collection. Use bright colors for your posts because people are more likely to engage with the posts with vibrant hues.
