This Is Why You’re Not Gaining New Instagram Followers

7 Jul

In order to be an influencer on social media sites, you need to have a good number of followers behind you. This is especially the case with Instagram. In fact, once you have a substantial follower list on this platform, you might find that you start to attract even more followers. People will see your following and think that you must be posting fantastic content in order to appeal to so many people. They’ll then want to hit your profile’s follow button straight away.


But what happens once you stop gaining followers? This can sometimes happen, even to the really big accounts. Thankfully, this can usually just be a phase and before long you will start to pick up new followers again. But what if you can’t seem to shake off this slow phase? Here are some reasons why you may have stopped gaining followers.


You’re Not Investing In Your Profile


You know how the old saying goes – you need to spend money to make money. And that is the case even on Instagram. Thanks to lots of new features, such as sponsored posts, you will find that spending money on your content can help it gain a much wider reach. There are other ways you can invest in your profile too. It’s not possible to buy Instagram likes and followers. Once you start spending a bit of cash on your profile, it will be quicker to get to the point where you can make money from it!


Your Content Isn’t Relevant


From the outset, you need to decide on the type of people who will make up your target audience. That will give you an idea of the type of content that you want to share. For instance, if you are into your fitness, then you might want to try and attract some partnerships with gyms and fitness brands by posting all about your training and workouts. This will then attract an audience who is interested in this niche. Whatever you do, never post anything that is off-niche as it will confuse your followers and might make them unfollow you.

You Don’t Give A Good First Impression


When was the last time you updated your Instagram bio? If you haven’t done so in a while, then it’s a good idea to do so now so that it is up to date and correctly reflects the type of content you will be sharing. Anyone who stumbles across your account will then instantly understand what you and your brand is about.


You’re Not Interacting With Your Followers


Whenever anyone comments on your photos, you need to like their comment and reply to them. Even if you just say thank you, this is still enough to show that you are interested in what they have to say. Users love accounts that interact with them as it shows them that there is a human behind the profile and not just a bot.


Use these tips and you will start attracting new followers in no time at all!
