Promote Products and Services Properly

Post creative photos of your business’ products and services to avoid your profile from being boring texts.

Post unique and intriguing things that will show your followers, customers, business partners, and potential clients exactly what your goal for your business is all about.

Many businesses at the moment know exactly how to use Instagram and basically just take casual photos of what they offer.

It is highly recommended to only post product photos about three times daily, as you don’t want to burn your followers with constant photos on their page.


Make Use of Photo Contests

Contests are fun and free, plus they are a great way to interact and attract potential customers. Ask your followers to simply submit their personal photos with your products and post them on your page.

You could choose a winner unanimously or the photo that looks the most unique. To have your followers constantly checking your page, have a daily photo contest where you choose the best photo to be posted on your page.

This is a smart and fun way to keep your followers entertained, and if you really want to get their attention, be sure to offer the winner prizes and awesome discounts.

Post Photos That Feature Promotional and Coupon Codes
Promoting exclusive discounts and coupon codes to your followers for your new services and products through simply showing a photo is simple, fast, and very fun.

Frankly, people get bored when they see long messages and posts, as they have become way too overrated now.

However, you must never forget to use hashtags on your photos i.e. #promocode.

Go Behind-the-Scenes

Show all your followers and customers the regular daily things that occurs in your business by simply posting candid pictures of your employees collaborating to make a new product.

Any type of photo that shows your followers how fun and hardworking your company is will be perfect, as you want people to perceive your business as real and genuine and not just a boring figure.

Such behind-the-scenes footage will help personalize your business and will create this sense of camaraderie to your followers.

Prioritize your Followers
Choose a single follower everyday whom you can promote and mention on your page. It is similar to Twitter and Facebook, just make use of hashtag like this @mention.

This will really fire up a ton of word-of-mouth promotion, because the person you promoted will tell their friends to check their picture out on your Instagram page.

The Benefits To Buying Instagram Followers As A Business Owner

The only way to actually get a ton of real Instagram followers is if you buy a couple followers first.

When you buy a couple hundred or thousand followers, people will get interest to see what type of business you own and follow your page.

It is simple, when a specific page has a ton of followers, you will wonder what type of company it is and what all the hype is all about.

This is exactly why people should really consider to buy Instagram followers.

    As Igor said in the disclaimer, I definitely don’t agree with your statement about buying followers. I know this is a big no-no when it comes to Instagram, and it definitely won’t do the brand’s credibility any good when true followers see follower numbers rise from 10 to 1000 in a day.

    P.S. Instagram is a mobile app first and foremost, not a website ;)

    Cool tips. I strongly agree with Marion and the disclaimer: I really wouldn’t advise buying Instagram followers. Only adding followers won’t brig any results and it’s not going to bring more people to follow your account. Instead, reaching out to these people, commenting on their photos and liking them takes more time but will bring better results.
