    Hi,
    I tried running several instagram ads hoping to increase the followers on my instagram page but the ads failed woefully , too bad.

    Note that am looking for real followers and interested followers and not bots, if I wanted just the numbers I know a service to make use of but that's not what I want.
    I wanted people in my country(Nigeria) who are interested in pretty much everything just normal Nigerians on IG to follow my page unfortunately the ads failed as a result am looking for a good emthod that won't be too demanding or tasking on my part, if possible a reputable service on the forum or a method that I can implement to get positive numbers.


    Thanks for your suggestion and help in advance

    Interested in pretty much everything?
    There lies your problem.
    You need to very very specific with your niche first.

    well I actually targeted specific people on IG on my ad set. But in reality my site is targeted at everyday people(Nigerians ) but particularly men. A lifestyle blog it is, and we write on lifestyle related topics what an everyday guy could be interested in.
    I don't know if you get my point... thanks for your contribution though

    Does instagram story boost followership like(or more) than post with hashtags? I used to think stories don't help

    here's what you can do
    - follow people who are liking the post on the bigger pages
    - Try to DM your blog to people who comment or like on your niche (this wont work most of the time but its free and you're spreading information)
    - you might have some specific hashtag trending for lifestyle in negeria try to contact with people who drop a like or comment.

    outbound your blog submit them to blog directories.

    hashtags will help you to reach more people who aren't following you and chances are you'll get a follow back. Good Luck

    instagram ads won't work try out bounding your blogs share it on social media
    - facebook group with lifestyle niche
    - try to interact with people.
    - give them styling tips
    - drive them to your instagram account

    At the beginning follow/unfollow is still a perdect way to get some followers. Many people say it decreases engagement but I havent noticed that. I think it should be perdect for Nigerian market as I believe should be more or less new thing.
    Also posting 1 photo everyday with 10-15 hashtags.
    Sounds simple but it still works
