How to Raise Your Instagram Engagement Now, 5 Proven Ways

  1. Davida Chazan

    This is all well and good but… Instagram hasn’t helped me get traffic to my blog at ALL. I get more Pinterest traffic than I do with Instagram.

      Hi Davida,
      I also get more traffic from Pinterest. However, it’s hard to tell. On my dashboard, Instagram, Link.tree, and Instagram Stories come in as different numbers.
      I’m hoping to monetize my Instagram following. Some people have already asked me to coach them. Brands may also be interested when they hear how many followers I have.

    Hi Sonali & Janice,

    These are actionable teams to boost Instagram engagement. But I want to add that posting when your followers are on Instagram also works pretty well. Some say there is no best time to post on Instagram, I don’t agree with that because there are times when your followers are not on Instagram. In such occasion your fraction decreases.

    So find your best time and share your content.
    Preview app is a great tool to aid you to figure out your best time to post. It helps you see your personal best time on Instagram. The app will evaluate your Instagram account and give you the following results:

    It shows you the best time to interact with your audience, the best day to post on Instagram, the best time to post, and the best day to interact for more engagement.

      Hi Moss,
      I haven’t used the Preview app in a while. I loved seeing the 3 posts side by side, to see how they’d look. I could move them around with ease. From what I recall, the optimization on the Preview app closely matched Buffer and my other app, When to Post. Thanks for writing.

    Hi Janice, I thought Instagram was cracking down on those that purchased followers and likes? I did one month of purchase followers from a company Neil Patel recommended but the quality of followers was not that great.
    I agree with Moss about posting times, it does help! And I do look at the stats often before making posts. I haven’t tried 30 hashtags, I get to 10-20 at most, thanks for the tips. I will try that one.
    I like the new look you have going here Janice at your blog 🙂

      Hi Lisa,
      At the risk of disagreeing with my guest author, I’d never recommend buying followers. If you noticed, I gave a footnote showing this tip was solely the opinion of the guest author.
      Thanks for the compliment on my new look! The tool All-hashtags gives you 30 based on your seedword. Copy-paste just make sure they’re all relevant.
      I also agree about posting times but it’s hard to know how I’d do if I didn’t have 30 or didn’t post during optimal times. Thanks for writing.

    Instagram is an amazing marketing platform. It’s an ideal platform to engage with your audience. To maintain a good connection with your audience you need to share valuable, unique and informative content with your audience.

    Hey, that was a great post đź‘Ť Thanks for some new tips, especially for the IG engagement calculator. Does anyone here know something about shadowbans? We recently got one and since then I think our posts’ engagement decreased dramatically. It’s pretty sad…
