This couple attracted a large number of admirers early on and we believe they will grow faster and there following will be much bigger in upcoming years.

 Our Instagram / YouTube couple show that they are real life couple. We love that out lovers not only portray the good, but also include the bad in their Instagram stories, feed posts and YouTube videos. We really enjoyed watching their YouTube Vlogs.

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.”

We covered the most interesting strategies for Instagram growth in 2021. We feel like these strategies both old and new will work well if executed right way.

Alexandra Creteau and David Murrietta are definitely very knowledgeable in what they do as influencers.

Discovering ‘Calling Out’ Anjalts Tinkering Piano Ballad

Published

on

Trevor Wayne -Writer

Noise-canceling headphones on, and it’s onto another round of new music Friday, scrolling and listening from all genres coming through the streaming platforms.   A litmus test to the senses and one song stood out with an uncanny magical effect to hit repeat.  The song is ‘Calling Out’ by multi-talent wunderkind Anjalts, an emerging super-shy artist I had the pleasure of meeting about a year ago when she released ‘Somewhere in the Sky’ and a bunch of other super releases.  But this soft ballad of a quiet tinkering piano pulsates like a heartbeat against the thunder and raindrops lingering in the background filling up my headphones with sounds that immerse your noisy brain to just sit back, relax and let it in.   Feel the prana flowing in like eternal sunshine of bliss, except it’s a rainy thundering rainforest feels and Anjalts celestial voice calling out from afar.  It’s an intimate ballad right from the start.  The effects composed by this rising star fuse a very different approach in a neo-pop psychedelic arrangement of atmospheric serenity not felt in a long time.  And it just keeps getting better.

‘Calling Out’ is reshaping the way mixes are done to inspire the senses instead of turning up the volume of the boom in our ears to the point of deafening effects.  Anjalts is an eco-aware artist/songwriter that exudes nature into what she creates with a consciousness of reminding us of the bigger picture, challenging our humanity as caregivers of the earth to do better.  And why not?  Isn’t that what art is supposed to do?

Lyrically the song talks about time.  Speaking to the artist on the phone, she had me wondering and getting all philosophical because it’s hard not to, especially when you listen to her soft voice asking you a riddle like “what is the real wealth we as humans have?” I said my paycheck on Fridays *wink~ And the answer is Time!  The choices we make in that little time-space are key.  Her songwriting in verse one resonates:

Time

Is all we have again

I want to run away with you

Do you think we’ll make it through?

Time

Is all we have left

I couldn’t see what you were going through

I wish it was me and not you

Calling Out, Calling out to you

Anjalts music is like a therapeutic outlet especially learning about the struggles faced by young people today regarding depression and suicide rates impacting their daily lives.  I do try ‘not’ to watch the news.  Still, every time I peak on my smartphone slide over to see what’s up.  It is not complicated to understand the extraordinary challenges youngsters confront today, which probably weren’t there 20 years ago.

‘Calling Out’ is magically uncomplicated and empowering.  It’s a shout-out to start the dialogue of facing these hardships, and maybe we have to begin resetting our noisy brain back to nature.  A reminder from a down-to-earth artist breaking the mould for young people and what kind of future is in store for them.  It’s an artist growing too in a chaotic time where escapism to deafening sounds seems easier than listening to the birds in the trees or the rain droplets on a rooftop.  Eventually, the noise, the hype and the lights died down, and there is only one more click to the next song in my headphone.  And in the distance, a tinkering piano improvisation of unpredictable sounds and a soft ethereal Anjalts voice ‘Calling Out’ to you.

Like a reset button to calm focus and subtle awareness. Like a breath of fresh air.
