** DON’T DO FOLLOWINGS **
1. Don’t use an app to download image/video from other pages.
~ Go to original post and take a screenshot. For video post, most likely it will be available on YouTube, just download it.
~ Edit it well becoz pixels quality matters a lot in Instagram.
2. Don’t like much posts from your page. That being said, like only relevant posts. Never ever random post.
3. Don’t use too many hashtags. Don’t keep hashtag sets for posts. Also don’t use apps to get Hashtags.
~ Use Instagram search to decide hashtags.
4. (Important) Don’t edit the post after you publish. Even if a silly mistake, let it go.
~ Instagram decrease the reach once you edit the post. Tried and tested.
5. In a video post, don’t go with default thumbnail.
~ Always pick an attractive thumbnail from the video. To do so, go to “cover” option while you’re publishing.
6. Never promote anything that’s fake or non genuine. You’ll get DMs for paid promo story such as “Buy followers” “Earning money” never promote such. (this will help you in building TRUST and later on, you’ll be able to monetize it.)
7. Avoid Schedulers / any tool.
8. Avoid mention in caption if possible. It can decrease the reach.
** HOW TO INCREASE ENGAGEMENT **
1. Be little active after you publish a new post.
– Reply to comments under 20 minutes. Once the post gets the good number of comments, Insta will boost the post’s reach. It will start performing well in Discovery page.
– Little big comments has more value in eyes of Instagram. So like and reply in that way 😀
2. Make best out of story. Keep posting stories at every 3 hours of interval.
– Post puzzle/riddle in a story and promise to feature correct replies.
– (important) Reply to all DMs. It will help your posts to get in their feed much upper.
~ Trust me it works. Every time you get a new message request is directly proportional to engagement 😛
3. Keep posting trending stuff with the hashtag, Location.
4. Emotional, Memory moments, Talent, Debate creating, post that gets good shares, saves etc. works perfectly to increase reach and engagement.
5. Analyze your Insights to understand your audience better.
~ It takes time to understand audience, but will help you grow fast.
