Happy Friday dolls.
Today I’m going to share with you “How to Gain Followers On Instagram“. This is something I get asked since I’ve been blogging full time for a year. I’ve worked so hard to get make sure I gain the proper followers organically. So today’s tips will help you on how to achieve your following numbers.
Tip: It’s not about the numbers on your social media it’s about the images. How your account looks.
There’s so many ways on “how to’s” and I hope that my tips are helpful and useful.
Take Good Pictures
I don’t know about you but I dislike seeing photos on my newsfeed that are dark, grainy and have no life. I like seeing images that are fun, bright, colorful, artistic, and looks like you took time to take that image.
When I first started to post on Instagram all my pictures were about my kids, food and things I was doing on the weekends. Well that’s changed since I started to blog full time. I’ll post pictures of my makeup, food, beauty products, makeup looks, etc..
I want to see your donuts, coffee drinks, occasional alcohol drinks, fashion, makeup, beautiful nature pictures, etc.. Just remember that it’s all about lighting. Majority of my pictures + makeup looks are used with natural lighting.

Make sure you edit your photos. No this doesn’t mean “photoshop” every photo. Use some of the photo editing apps available to you on your phone. Editing your photos will enhance your images. You can lighten them, fix any imperfections etc..

Take time to go on other accounts. Leave a comment and like more of their photos. That’s how you’ll gain more followers. If someone leaves a comment on your images then reply to them. (It takes me a while to reply to everyone but I try to)
Don’t put all your hashtags on your caption. Only use 3 hashtags on your caption and in the comment section include the rest of your hashtags. My favorite hashtags to use are: #PhotosinBetween #SYBLBLOGGERS #bbloggers #lbloggers and many more.
When you use a hashtag anyone using that same hashtag can see your image. This could lead to possible “likes/comment” or even a follow.
There you have it. These are my tips on how to gain followers on instagram.
