How to get more likes on Instagram (5 tips we should all know!)
Who doesn’t want to get more likes on Instagram? I know we do! So we have crunched the numbers, analysed the data, and investigated the algorithm…
So here are the 5 easiest and best ways to get more likes on Instagram:
1. Post at the right time
Your audience is more active at certain times throughout the day and week. Posting just before the peak of activity can help you get that initial boost of likes that will bump your post up on the algorithm making more of your followers see it.
If you want to know when your audience is most active: go to your audience insights page by clicking the top three lines on your feed > insights >audience and scroll to the bottom.
2. Understand what your profile’s focus is
Knowing what your followers want to see from you is the most important part of getting the most likes. The truth is, most of the time, it’s you! Your friends probably want to see you, your face, doing what you do best and in your element! But hey, if your Instagram is all about photography or art and design, try and make this the focus of your post!
3. Like and comment on other posts
It’s tit for tat in this world. People are unlikely to go out of their way and check out your posts if you don’t do the same. Just like in real life, taking in an interest in someone’s life is the fastest way to get them interested in yours! So, engage with them and they will engage with you!
4. Make sure you tag your friends and location
People want to know who you’re with and what you are up to. This is all about redirects and sharing, friends of friends are likely to see your posts if they see their friends are tagged in it! Not to mention that this method boosts the post up in the algorithms ranking. Secondly, people love looking at geotags to see what a place’s vibe is like before they go. Tagging the location is a great way to get new likes and followers.
5. Post quality photos
At the end of the day, the bread and butter of Instagram is good quality photos that show a good story. Nothing gets more likes than a high-quality photo of a person you love doing something that they love. So, what are you waiting for! Find a task on our app and get out there!
