    To get more followers on Instagram do the following things:
    1. Promote your dedicated hashtag on your other social profiles, on your website, and your email blast.
    2. Get creative with your hashtags. Be funny, ironic, or outrageous – but never boring!
    3. Watch topically relevant and trending hashtags. Join these conversations to get in front of more people.
    4. Use your bio link to drive traffic to your newest or most popular content.
    5. Write descriptive captions. Storytelling will help generate engagement and sharing.
    6. Interact with top influencers in your space and try to become one of their favorite people or brands.
    7. Don't want a tagged photo of you or your brand on your profile? Edit Tags to hide images from your profile.
    8. Adjust your settings so any potentially embarrassing tagged photos won't show without your approval.
    9. Develop your own unique, recognizable visual style. Figure out how you want to stand out and make it so!
    10. Visit the Places tab to see what's happening locally - your neighborhood, a city you're targeting in ads, or an event in a certain location.
    11. Use a call to action to tell people what you want them to do with your posts. Find clever ways to get people to share your content.

    nobody will search a funny hashtag which you just found or developed .....

    To get more followers on Instagram do the following things:
    1. Promote your dedicated hashtag on your other social profiles, on your website, and your email blast (I dont see how this will get you followers)
    2. Get creative with your hashtags. Be funny, ironic, or outrageous – but never boring! (I agree with be creative with HTs but that is not something that will get followers)
    3. Watch topically relevant and trending hashtags. Join these conversations to get in front of more people. (Maybe it could work in a low level)
    4. Use your bio link to drive traffic to your newest or most popular content. (I dont see how this will get you more followers)
    5. Write descriptive captions. Storytelling will help generate engagement and sharing. (I agree that this will generate engagement and probably new followers)
    6. Interact with top influencers in your space and try to become one of their favorite people or brands. (Good idea, not easy at all.)
    7. Don't want a tagged photo of you or your brand on your profile? Edit Tags to hide images from your profile. (I don't see how this will get you new followers)
    8. Adjust your settings so any potentially embarrassing tagged photos won't show without your approval. (I dont see how this will get you new followers)
    9. Develop your own unique, recognizable visual style. Figure out how you want to stand out and make it so! (Good idea, people will identify your account due to your branding, not necessarily will get you new followers)
    10. Visit the Places tab to see what's happening locally - your neighborhood, a city you're targeting in ads, or an event in a certain location. (I don't see how this will get you new followers)
    11. Use a call to action to tell people what you want them to do with your posts. Find clever ways to get people to share your content. (This is a good tip and it could get you followers)

    This post should be called, IG good practices and not: Follow this to get more followers.
