    Hey, guys!

    I have a bit of advice, and also a question at the end.

    I increase new follower engagement significantly by doing one thing: I add to my bio, "Like three pictures when you follow!" Side note: Idk how big of an impact it makes, but I also put an emoji after "follow!" too.

    Anyways, I'm seeing a HUGE boost in new follower engagement now. It's something like 70% - sometimes more, sometimes just a little less, but it's never less than 50% of new followers engaging. A lot of them like exactly 3 photos, and some of them even spam the hell out of your page with likes and comments!

    Not only is this bringing me more organic likes, but some of their friends see my posts too, either from suggesting me on their explore page or by their followers checking the activity tab, which brings more followers on top of that.

    If you're doing follow/unfollow, and you want to increase first-hour activity on your account (to help reach the explore page), post your photo and then run a big follow spree as quickly (and safely) as you can. This increases real follower engagement and, in theory, helps your posts reach the explore page!

    I run a little one right before I post too, bc not everybody is on IG 24/7 like my lifeless ass is, so they'll bleed in within the first hour of the post and hopefully like it.

    Now, my question: do you think it's wise to like some of their photos back? Will this increase the chance of them organically seeing my posts in their feed? My thought is "yes," but I'd like some opinions from you guys!

    Hope this is insightful for some of you. If you already knew this technique, then cool, too. Cheers!!

    Thats a good idea, nice to see that it works. Liking posts is the same as following someone, it gets their eyes on you - this works even better if they dont get much likes on their stuff

    most of the time when i see someone just following me without liking my posts I think its just a random bot follwing me. But when someone likes a few of my posts and then follow me then it feels much more real, and often its a real follower too, which make much more keen to check out their profile.

    can you share your niche? and about your question when you like someone pic they will feel i should return the favor I think.

    I will try that because I've been hitting this problem and my account refuses to grow despite posting quality original photos that I've taken, portraits of women, which should immediately mean "follow me" to a lot of people. Yet I am stuck at 400 followers, it'll go up about 10-15 day and then at around 6pm it'll start dropping and dip beneath 400 by the morning, it's been doing this for about 2 weeks now and I'm confused as shit.

    My other niche account is growing successfully so it's just strange. Following, liking and commenting as many per day as possible doesn't do much for it, it would seem. So maybe asking people to like will help?

    This does seem to work honestly. It's probably because most people on instagram just love seeing emojis.
