Instagram recently switched up its algorithms and made the whole process of gaining followers even harder. Of course, the task isn’t impossible if you know what features and tactics to utilize. Take Advantage Of The Contact Button Instagram has been offering business profiles for a while now, but people just weren’t taking advantage of them. Now, might be the best time to upgrade your account, as they recently added a variety of unique features. One of these features is the contact button. This button allows your followers to quickly and easily get in touch with you and there is nothing that will build a quicker following than by giving individuals a chance to voice their opinions and ask questions. Automatically Schedule Your Post Times The best advice from LikeSocial.co is that posting at certain times can increase your followers. This has been a well-proven tactic over the years. However, if you remember in the past the process was quite a hassle. You probably found yourself waking up at three in the morning just to make a post, so that you could reach your followers on the west coast. Well, that will no longer be the case, as you can now automatically post to your account at anytime of your choosing. All you have to do is set the time and the post will be added at the time of your choosing. Instagram Story Highlights The Instagram stories feature was a huge hit when it was first introduced on the market, but it really had one major design flaw. This flaw was that the story disappeared after 24 hours. Fortunately, the Instagram Stories Highlights change all that. These are basically curated clips that you can group together to show off certain aspects of your products, services, or profile. They show up right under your bio on your profile page and they will stay there until you physically remove them. This gives you the chance to build casual and unique highlight stores that can turn the occasional visitor into a follower. Instagram Live There is nothing more exciting than watching something live. Watching the magic unfold right in front of your eyes in real time can be truly amazing. And, this is why if you want to gain massive quantity of followers you should take advantage of Instagram Live. This neat little feature will allow businesses or any regular individual to host live shows, Q&A sessions, and how-to tutorials. In addition to this, Instagram users can always see which live broadcasts are trending with the highest numbers in the left hand corner of their app. This is similar to the feature that allows you to track the highest trending photos. So, the more people you get to view your broadcast, the more people you are going to make aware of your profile, which could potentially turn into followers.
