If you’ve been working on growing your Instagram following for any length of time, you’ve definitely encountered a gazillion trainers who have told you the finest “growth hacks.”
‘Growth Hacks’ Expression
Ways that are quick and simple to increase your Instagram account’s growth and number of followers. They might be anything. You could have seen some of these:
- Strategies for hashtags
- Patterns of interaction
- adhere to strategies
- Look into page hacks
And… they can work!
And they’re capable of working!
WHY DO I SAY THEY DON’T WORK, THEN?
These fast fixes may attract new visitors to your page, but they have little effect on keeping them there.

No connection to you If you don’t give them a cause to stick around, they can stop following you.
Once you have consistently given them value, decide to stay.

- Internal engagement
- Valuable content
- Post “series’’
- educational/inspirational/instructional content
- Answering questions

- Solving problems
- Staring personality
- Vulnerable and personal content
So although growth hacks can occasionally be effective in bringing in more visitors to your website, you’ll need to put in more effort if you really want people to engage with your content.
