How to Get More Active Followers on Instagram
Hey lovely Instagrammer! Are you fed up with ghosties and do you wish for more active followers in the future? You need to follow two simple steps for achieving that: You have to reactivate your current followers as well as build new subscribers. Of course, that doesn't work by simply buying 1000 followers on a shady website and with spamming-sprees in other people's comment section. If you find your way to this guide, I assume that you already tried to "super simple tricks" from other people. But you're not satisfied. I can promise you: There is a simple trick that's mostly unknown, but more and more Instagrammers are starting to use it. The magic word is "interaction with your followers". And how do you manage to do that without writing a thesis? That's simople: With free polls, you'll be able to get more active followers on Instagram!
Got it, but how do I benefit from those polls?
Those polls, filled with meaningful content, can help you to gain more followers for your Instagram. And those followers will be active! After 2 million polls and counting on StrawPoll.com, we gathered information for a "best practive" on how Instagrammers successfully used straw polls in the past. Of course, I want to share that with you. Here's a list of typical, well-performing polls:
- How do you like my page?
- What do you like the most on my page?
- How can I improve my Insta?
- Did you like my last story?
- What should I post next?
Those are examples for polls where you can put the link to the poll in your bio of your own profile. Another important thing: Use emojis! Yes, it still works in 2018! 😊
I can show you some positive and negative examples of polls for Instagram, just like a little collection ofDo's and Dont's for StrawPoll.com. It's quite important that you include your Insta name in your poll, so new Instagrammers find their way to your profile. That's not as important when creating a poll just for your profile, but it will become more important when trying to find new followers via straw polls.
Dos and Don'ts (Screenshots)
Again, a little checklist of the most important things to consider:
- Ask reasonful question
- Add your profile link/name
- Use Emoji
- Involve your followers
- Allow and interact with comments
- Post your poll results with our hashtag #strawpoll
- Pro-Tip: Share a picture of the poll in your stream
Post your poll outside of Instagram
With the tips given prior, you should be able to reactivate your ghosties on your profile a little. Now one step further: Gain new followers! That won't happen while creating a poll, sharing it on your profile only and just sitting there and waiting. You have to create creative and funny polls and post them somewhere where new people get to see them. With a link to your profile of course! If they like your poll, they most surely will click on your profile. That's the first step of success, because once they're already on your profile, you can easily convert them into followers. To find a topic that will work that way, it might need some preparation and consideration time. The poll has to be interesting. While it might work with a simple poll like "Who's got the most beatiful Insta page?" in the beginning, you'll have to get more creative over time.
Keep new and exsting followers active
No question: To keep your existing and new followers active, your pictures are more important that anything else. The better your posts, the more comments, likes and activity you'll get. Anyhow, with regular, fresh straw polls you can also keep your followers happy and active. History has shown that polls about what to do/post next are the best ones. Here is a nifty little list of examples you can use in variety:
- Should I post fashion pics, too?
- What do you want to see as 1,5k special?
- Which topic do you like the post?
- Favorite subject? ❤️
- What kind of "How to..." should I post next?
Well, and how do I create these polls now?
Nothing easier than that! Just go to StrawPoll.com and type in your question and think of different answer options. Then you'll receive your personal link (z.B. https://strawpoll.com/besy2373), that you can share in your bio, other social platforms or even message boards. Have fun and even more followers!
Ah, and don't forget to analyze your poll results:
How to put your link in your Insta bio
Haha, I almost forgot! In the last couple of weeks, I saw a handful profiles, where the strawpoll link was put into the bio text... In that way, the link is not clickable and only a few followers will type in the URL of your poll. :D Very important: Your personal poll-link has to be put as "Website" in your profile, so it shows up next to your bio text but as a clickable link. Here is an example of how to do it correctly:
