How To Get More Instagram Followers Without Buying Them

Now that you know how to step up your Instagram “like” game, let’s talk about how to get more followers. You’ve probably heard through your 12-year-old cousin that people actually pay for followers. That’s not how you have to do it. There are ways to get followers for free–just follow these three easy steps:

1) Become a loyal liker

As we mentioned before, it’s important to be a loyal liker. Don’t just like and comment on your besties photos, share the love with people who aren’t necessarily in your tight circle. You can even go so far as to like photos of friends or friends who you might not know so well. Just watch, you’ll get a follow back.

2) Choose hashtags wisely

Going overboard with hashtags is, like, social suicide, but you’re not going to get more followers without ’em. So, when deciding which hashtags to use, consider ones that help increase followers (#FF + Follow Friday, #LB = like back, #l4l = like for like) and popular ones (#love, #instagood) that are used the most on IG (aka, will be seen by the most people when the click to search it).

3) Use follower suggestions

I bet a lot of you got Instagram before it could connect to your Facebook friends, right? Well, not that’s something you can do. Go to your profile, click the settings wheel in the top right corner, and under “Follow People” click “Facebook Friends” to see who you’re not following yet. Give ’em a follow and they will probably follow back. Same goes for the contacts in your phone who you’re not following yet.

Let us know if you try any of these tricks and if they work out! #FF every day.
