- Showing who you aren’t following back
Now am sure you understand how this app works, I can tell you how to use it.
Growing Your Instagram Followers
This is how it is done:
- Target periods on Instagram when people are most active and post a lot (Can be done every day)
- Look out for posts that are at least an hour fresh
- Even if you do not know the person who posted, just like the post
That’s not all.
You can even choose posts that are at least 30 or 20 minutes fresh and this is because the person who posted may still be online. When you like their post, even without knowing them in person, they get forced to check you out and can decide to follow you. Or better still after liking what they posted, you can follow them. Since they are online, they can easily return the favor.
If they do not follow you back, don’t get angry just be patient but give them at least a week to follow you back but if they don’t, get on your Instafollow app and track those you followed who did not follow you back then, unfollow them.
Anytime you follow someone and the person didn’t follow you back, use this pattern. It will increase your followers and give you an edge to becoming one of the hot shots on Instagram leaving your friends wondering how you’re doing it.
