In this video tutorial Mike, our Instagram guru, will walk you through a very simple trick that could easily increase your organic engagement!
The key to this trick lies in drawing attention to your post & making it stand out from the crowd. Even if you are able to grab someone’s attention for a split second, you stand a much better chance of getting a like from them.
Do Likes Really Matter?
Likes aren’t the end-all, be-all on Instagram of course – but they can certainly help you out! More of them (especially shortly after posting) will greatly increase your chances of hitting the explore page. That, of course, exposes your post & account to a much wider audience – which, if exploited properly, will lead to account growth.

Remember: The number of likes on your post is a visual indicator of your popularity. Something we call social proof. Right or wrong, good or bad, it’s human nature to “follow the crowd”. This is why Facebook likes were such a big deal early on. By double tapping your post, users are validating your account & your message. They are more likely to engage & to share, which will lead to greater interaction from other users. Truly a snowball effect.
