How to get followers on Instagram for Free

Don’t pay for Instagram followers! Below are free tips you can incorporate into your Instagram marketing to gain followers.

One tip is to Aim for the Explore tab. The Explore tab is what you see when you click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the Instagram app. Instagram states this is where “you can find photos and videos that you might like from accounts you don’t yet follow.”

The Explore tab features Instagram posts, Stories, and IGTV. Users first see a grid of content chosen by Instagram’s algorithm. Users then have the option to choose to dive deeper into specific content subjects using the topic channels at the top of the screen.

Half of Instagram accounts visit Explore every month. That’s a huge opportunity for brands looking to grow their audience. You can also pay to get into the Explore feed by selecting Explore as an ad placement.

Implement these free tips and watch your Instagram followers grow – organically!
