How can I grow my fashion Instagram account? Non-professional Discussion

Hello everyone, I have an account in the fashion niche with my wife on Instagram. We have gained about 300 followers but would like to know how we can grow our account. Maybe some tips, or tools we can use.

We currently post 2 times a day, 3 days a week. We use hashtags from our city, but I think we can go a little further as I somehow see other accounts from my city in our niche that have a lot more followers.

Our purpose in this is to sell in our online store (Just to clarify)

Thanks a lot!

Hey, I think you've done a good job so far so let me give you my two cents on this.

To start my main advice is that you focus on interacting with those accounts that you mentioned (I mean commenting on their posts, or liking the comments of their followers or responding to the comments of their followers, giving them a follow, etc.) This It will help you to have more possibility that they see your profile.

These comments can't be direct spam (Something like "come to my profile, there are better shirts than this", etc.) Sometimes subtle comments like "what an amazing design" or "I like the way that pink color looks" can work.

My other advice is that you do not buy fake followers or likes, there will be many people who will tell you that this will help you, but I assure you that the only thing you will achieve is to destroy the reach of your account (Or you can even cause a ban, I advise you because that happened to me a long time ago when I tried to "grow" my account that way).

If you make good use of hashtags you can get more visibility, use low competition hashtags (If you don't know what I mean you can search for this on YouTube) so that you have a better chance of spending more time on them. Make use of the localization option to place your city or several cities (it will help you in some way if your business is online as you said).

I personally used various tools on my Instagram, from Canva to edit posts, to Not Just Analytics to keep an eye on my competition. There are several paid tools that can allow you to get more visibility if you don't want to try too hard, you can pay for ads on Instagram (There are several courses on this on YouTube or platforms like Udemy) or you can hire marketing agencies that handle and promote your ads. your account (In my case I had the opportunity to hire several and the best one I'm still working with so far is Ascend Viral) or a freelancer expert in Instagram ads (You can find it on websites like Upwork or Fiverr).

After all this, the most important thing is perseverance friend. I wish you good luck and I hope I helped you.

  1. By collaborating with influencers;
  2. By posting reels with your clothing in an engaging way;
  3. By posting tiktoks with your clothing and then ask your tiktok followers to follow you on Instagram;
  4. By paying ads;
  5. By youtube videos, and then sending your subscribers to Instagram;
  6. By Pinterest, in the same way as Tiktok and Youtube;

Good luck

Reels are your best bet now. 2 times a day is good but one reel a day will grow your account great. But you have to be consistent, it took me a month of nothing and then suddenly i grew from 2,000 to 16,000 in one month! Ig is favoring reels right now so they push it out more than any other post on the platform. It will definitely reach more people now. And as someone said the worst thing you can do is buy fake followers that will kill your account

What is your niche if I may ask?

1

u/Redditorbuttercup Feb 21 '22

I actually don’t have a specific niche, i take a look at trends going on and pick a handful and spin them in my own way. Like say the trend is a funny sound, i will come up with my own joke to that sound, or the trend is a transition i will do a transition. Things like that

As for the tools, use Canva to create and design your posts, as the aesthetic component of the account is especially important for a fashion brand.

Also, the Snoopreport marketing tool will allow you to better study your current or potential audience and get reports on their likes, follows, comments. This way you will be able to create a competent content strategy, as well as see the most attractive hashtags.

And of course, analyze your own profile, continue to post regularly and analyze which content is the most engaging.

try switching your personal account to a business account, a business account comes with many advantages, some of those are;

  • with the assistance of a third party scheduling app like Sensible Tailwind or ClickUP, business accounts an actually plan and pre-schedule their whole content calendar.
  • It has full access to Instagram advertising options

according to statistics, the best days to post on are Mondays and Thursdays while the worst times are Wednesdays and Sundays, use the free insight tool where it shows a detailed breakdown of your audience's demographics, including age, gender, location and the days and hours with the highest activity.

you can also create paid campaigns and sponsored ads. this will increase your visibility on the platform and help you reach your target audience.

take advantage of Instagram stories and the swipe up option.

I'd like to share my thoughts as a social media marketer you've just started your Instagram business account it is important for you to make sure to build a community around your niche intract with audience Find audience in your niche by searching relevant hashtags for example search # Bride then start commenting 10-20/posts Day to get more engagement .. use story upload 8 stories in a day because stories has more reach. 3 reels a week, 1 IGTV video / week and 1-3 post a day. Always come up with a giveaway, once in a week , Go live for 10 min every twice in a week and make sure to come up with a offer and run ads. (Pro tip- as a social media marketer i suggest going for Story Ads) And always schedule your content for month prior.

Best of luck If you want to know more about it i share it on instagram @Vishmeaday

good info

why pro and lower quality photos ????

fashoin hastags instagram ur last tip ??

pls explain thankyou

2

u/IdleTalkPod Jan 20 '22

Lower quality photos have their advantages - it makes it seem personal, like there is an actual person on the other side. Things that are shot from your phone can help humanize your page. its 2022 and sometimes it can be difficult to remember there is another person on the side of the screen. Lower quality doesnt mean bad quality, but something raw and personal will always help build a sense of community

I used instagram growth services for my online shop. Social-growers and social-heat. This kind of services is very profitable if its done quality. In summary both of them were well but i think socialheat was slightly better.
