Food for thought, instant nourishment for hungry readers like yourself. Because right about now, you’re all starting to know just how you can pull in new Instagram followers to your platform. And not only that, you’re dying to know just what more needs to be done for them to like you in a big way and then get them to kiss and tell, and spread the word that you’re the new kid on the Instagram block that deserves to get a face recognition, and a voice recognition, and certainly recognition in words, at least, edge-wise. That’s called being modest. But it’s also called being a little realistic. And I am showing ambition in this here little enterprise of ours.
Still, to this day, I want more followers to my own account. But what to do when there doesn’t appear to be much movement upwards. I could say that it’s fortunate that I haven’t experienced any downward drop in numbers, but even this is worrying. No, I’m not being pessimistic. It’s just that I’m being realistic. But I’m also keeping a cool head, and I’m addressing the matter. You see, those follower numbers could mean diddly squat. Here’s why. Instagram’s given you fine tools to use on your platform, so use these already.
One of the tools you should try to use judiciously are those pages that allow you to track your stats and trends. So, there you see it. You see all those followers. And what do you notice about them? They’re just sitting there. They’re pretty inactive alright. So, apart from giving the impression to outside viewers that you’ve got ‘great’ numbers, it really isn’t helping you much. It’s important to try and attract followers to my platform that are going to be active. I want followers who will be making contributions to my blog work.
I want them to enjoy what I do and spread the word around. And they are your customers, don’t you ever forget that. You need to treat them accordingly. This is what you do. You may have your own impressions and ideas and, by all means, keep on promoting yourself as persuasively as you can. But in order to attract their notice in a positive sense and please them, you’ll need to consider what interests them. That part would seem easy enough in the sense that many of your followers should already have similar interests in mind.
But that’s all good and well. It’s the how and why that may be more important. Try and work your way around how they feel and then respond in kind. Do your research on pertinent questions and issues they may have raised with you. And if there’s been consistency, you could compose a short, functional Q & A page that’s stationed somewhere down the length of the home page of your main website. And of course, this site of yours needs to link back to your Instagram platform, and vice versa.
