Let’s dive deep into our questions about Instagram strategies for Instagram growth in 2021.

So please guys, tell us How to Get More Instagram Followers in 2021?

Alexandra: “I think before focusing on getting followers, it is important to take some time for your branding. Also, make sure that you decide what type of post you would like to post. You don’t want to jump from one niche to another. It will be bad for your branding, as you might want to do some rebranding. Your followers might not like it. Jumping around different topics can confuse your audience on what type of content you want to post.”

David: “ I agree with Alexandra. Right at the beginning of our relationship, when Alexandra introduced me to the social media world. She spend time explaining to me how to I should position myself in my niche and also shared her advice about branding. It is such a large topic and we can’t explain everything, but have enough time to touch on most topics. These days growing your Instagram page may not be as easy as it used to be a few years ago. But there are some strategic tips that still can work for Instagram growth in 2021”.

How do you feel about Instagram reels ? Are they on the same level as TikTok reels ?

Alexandra: “ We are not active on TikTok, as all our focus and energy goes towards our YouTube channel and our Instagram pages. I have had a positive experience with Instagram reels. I feel like it’s definitely a good way to grow, depending on your niche. If you’re not sharing Instagram Reels in 2021, you definitely should start. It can be a huge opportunity for your brand or business to grow”.

David: “ I love Instagram reels and every night I scroll down on Instagram and watch Instagram reels. As Alexandra said, we are not active on TikTok, but I see a lot of users sharing their TikTok reels to their Instagram pages. I would definitely advise to use Instagram reels, see how they will work for you. I feel like TikTok not for every blogger/ influencer or business. You have to try it and see if it’s for you. If it is for you, stick with it and you will grow on Instagram.”

Alexandra: “ I agree, same goes with IGTV videos. Check them out and see if they will work for you.”

Do you think hashtags is still effective way to grow on Instagram in 2021?

Alexandra: “Instagram just recently announced that English-speaking users in some countries will be able to search Instagram using keywords.

So now, even if you don’t use hashtags but mention some keywords in your posts and bios your profile should show up in search even if that hashtag isn’t in the post.

I think hashtags still the good way to grow, but not the only one, as Instagram improves every year and now smarter then ever.”

David: “ I feel every blogger/ influencer should optimize their Instagram captions for search. These days you can plan your Instagram posts ahead of time. It’s very  important to spend some time to optimize your username and bio for search. Also, you can google hashtags strategies that can work and research your own hashtags for your account.

I always spend time researching hashtags and switching them up depending on what kind of post I decide to post.”

Alexandra: “ Also, I would advise coming  up with a branded hashtag. A branded hashtag is a hashtag that is unique to your brand or your business. It can be as simple as your company name, your brand name, maybe some short tagline, or the name of one of your products, events, or campaigns.”

What do you think about a Viral Instagram Challenges? Is it good way to grow ? 

David: “Yes, definitely! Some of you may remember #FliptheSwitch or #BathtubChallenge. I think 2020 was the year of Instagram challenges.”

Alexandra: “I think Influencers/ YouTubers, have realized the power of viral Instagram challenges. If done right,  it can be great way to build brand awareness and growing your following.”

David: “I think creating a challenge will work great not only for Instagrammers, but also YouTubers.”

Alexandra: “Yes, it’s also very creative and fun way to grow your following.”

What about collaborations with similar bloggers ? Is it still working?

Alexandra: “Collaborations with bloggers and brands, is considered one of the most popular and best ways to grow your following.

Some brands can help you grow your following. They can use content your create for their social media ads and mention your username in their ads. It can grow you following very fast.”

David: “ Some brands love when bloggers do Instagram Story takeovers, giveaways, and competitions. I think for brands it’s a fantastic way to reach new audiences quickly and cost-effectively. If they decide to use an influencer’s content for their ads, it’s definitely a big plus for the blogger. 

Let’s not forget that collaboration with another blogger in your niche can bring you a reliable, engaging audience that will stick with you for very long time. I would strongly advise to do collaborations with similar influencers. You can come up with very fun and engaging ideas for collaborations and produce high quality engaging content for your audience.”

Alexandra: “As a couple we are posting Instagram stories together all the time. Sometimes it’s like mini – Vlogs. We are always tagging each other in our stories. I think it’s very organic and engaging way to grow your following and exchange audiences.”

What other good ways to grow Instagram following in 2021?

David: “ I would say if you create a YouTube channel, it will grow organically. Your subscribers from YouTube will follow you on Instagram.”

Alexandra: “Yes, it’s definitely a good way to grow your Instagram following or YouTube subscribers. We have our followers constantly telling us they enjoy watching our Vlogs and they followed us on Instagram from YouTube or vise-versa.  

You can drive traffic to Instagram from your written blog as well.”
