      Thanks Zac. There’s still plenty of time to jump on the Instagram bandwagon though.

    We can also check what’s the Weekend Hashtag Project (#WHP) of Instagram where you can have a chance to get featured on their blog and get new followers. ūüôā

    I really like tip number 7, the one about the questions as the captions. I have never thought about asking questions there! It allows people to comment on my images and then I can reply to others. I also like the contests, I think these contests can bring in a lot of followers and likes which would be great for my instagram account.

    I have been pushing hard to increase my Instagram followers lately but it is a slow game – much slower than Facebook I find. At best I am acquiring 3-4 followers a day.

    Great article Albert! When I created a new instagram account, I did a small experiment on these methods to see which work best. Thought you might find it interesting.

    • Albert Costill

      Thanks for sharing your experiment with us Randy. That could definitely come in handy for someone who is just starting out on Instagram. Great work!

    Love the post! I think that if you want to get a lot of new likes, comments and followers, you should be doing the same for others. The more active you are, the more exposure you will get.
