Best tips for growing your Instagram beauty account

By Hannah Tiziani

Whether you’ve just gotten into the Instagram game or you’ve been at it for a while, growing your Instagram and increasing your followers can be tough. Whether it’s for business or personal use, bringing traffic to your account can often seem impossible but with a few simple tips and tricks, you’ll be seeing a difference in no time!

Post consistently

One of the best tips for growing your Instagram is to post on your account frequently and consistently. Followers won’t stick around if you’re only posting once a week then five times in one day. Aim for 1-2 posts per day.

Use popular hashtags

Using the right hashtags is really important when it comes to getting your photos noticed. Always use ones that are relevant to your image as well as popular ones used by those with similar photos to yours. A quick search of similar accounts to yours is a great way to find new hashtags that can open your profile up to a whole new community.

Like and comment on photos that are similar to yours

If you like to post photos of makeup on your account, go through and like the photos of those who do the same thing. Not only is this a great way for you to discover new accounts, it help them discover you too!

Engage with your followers

It’s always important to stay engaged on Instagram, as this is what makes your followers stick around. Simply replying to the comments on your own photo and returning one on theirs is a great way to show that you are active and have great engagement.

Host a giveaway

If you run the type of account that this is appropriate for, running a giveaway can be one of the best ways to boost your followers. While many will unfollow once the giveaway is finished, I have personally found that this really does increase your followers and helps to grow your account.

Share your Instagram on your other social network accounts

Whether you do this through Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or even your personal blog, sharing your Instagram account on your other social media pages can open up your profile to so many more people who wouldn’t have even know about it otherwise.
