Taking a cue from popular Instagram content is a great way to get more followers on this social network. If you take a cue from users who are already popular, you will be able to learn in a short time what are the trending issues to be treated on this platform, how to deal with your audience, and so on.

To take a peek at the content of the most followed users on Instagram, start the social network app on your mobile device, press the magnifying glass symbol, and scroll through the list of the most viewed content by the community. If you want to do this from your computer, connect to the Instagram website, log in to your account and click on the compass icon to access the “Explore” section of the social network.

A “third-party” tool that you can use to analyze the most popular Instagram content is Iconosquare, a paid online service that can help you find interesting content based on the categories of your interest and that can even allow you to view some related statistics your Instagram profile.

Making good use of hashtags is essential in groped for the road to success on Instagram. If you are subscribed to Instagram surely you already know what a hashtag is … it is a word or phrase (usually in English) that is preceded by the hashtag symbol (#). But have you ever wondered what a hashtag actually is for? No, here it is! But don’t worry, I’ll explain it to you.

Hashtags have the task of labeling content (which is why some also call them “labels”) so that when a user searches for a certain topic on Instagram, they can view relevant content based on the hashtags that characterize them. As you can well understand, therefore, the role of hashtags is very important! But how can you make sure that you are using the most relevant hashtags for your content and, at the same time, the most popular ones?

Linking other social profiles to your Instagram account is very important if you want to expand your audience. By doing this, you will be able to share the photos you post on Instagram and also on the other social networks you are subscribed, including Facebook in the first place. This way a larger number of people will see your content and, therefore, could add themselves to your followers.

Once the configuration is complete, the photos you will post on Instagram will be shared automatically on all the social profiles connected to your account (provided that you keep the specific option active, and available when publishing the shots). Very convenient as a solution, right? And if the options included “standard” in Instagram do not satisfy you, you can activate other options for automatic posting and synchronization of content between Instagram and other online platforms using IFTTT.
