95 million posts are shared on Instagram every day. With that said, it isn't easy to get your content recognized with just posts. Some people can even gain a considerable number of followers without any posts.
There are many ways apart from posting to increase your followers and improve your reach. Content is integral in gaining followers; however, it is not the only factor. The multitude of features offered by Instagram makes it possible for you to interact with your audience without posting. Let us see some of the ways that can help you gain followers without posting anything.
Good Engagement With The Audience
Building relationships and frequently interacting with your followers will help you gain confidence. If you treat them as your friends and comment on their posts, like it or even reply to their messages, you will be able to build a strong Instagram profile. People will consider you a genuine person, and despite no content, they would gravitate towards you.
Reply to your old and new followers and engage with your audience on other social media platforms. This will build a stronger relationship because now you will be able to talk on multiple platforms. You can also find new people to interact with on other platforms and then build a relationship with them so you can later send them a follow on Instagram.
This doesn't just limit to social media. You can talk to people in real life, connect with random people, and later send them a request on Instagram. Networking, as well as a large friend circle, is essential in gaining followers.
Linking with Youtube
YouTube is another excellent way to promote your content. There are over 2 billion YouTube users worldwide. Along with that, as soon as you type a question for Google, few of the top results are from YouTube. People tend to understand better from videos, so they turn to YouTube when they want to know something.
After solving people’s queries or entertaining them on your YouTube Channel, you can link them to your Instagram handle. If people like your content on YouTube, you don't need to post any on Instagram to gain followers. They will do that automatically because they love you.
Interact through Instagram Stories
Stories are a great way to keep your audience engaged without posting anything. Stories only stay temporarily, and it's a great way to strengthen your relationship with your followers. You can do polls, post random things without really posting any content in the feed. People love the polls and questions in stories. This way, they still engage with your profile without any content.
Doing Live Sessions
Going Live is another feature that makes interacting with the audience fun and easy. You may have zero posts, but going live gives a real snippet of your life to the audience. They find it more engaging as they comment on their thoughts, asking you questions to display their support.
Posts are the most popular way to interact with people. However, it is not the only way. Other features offered by Instagram might be more effective than the rest. By combining all of these methods, you might be able to attain a whole lot of followers.
