1. Use unique, crisp, and attractive hashtag

Hashtags are not only important for Twitter; they also play a prominent role on Instagram. It's a big way of how users can find you through their mobile Instagram searches. As compared to Twitter, here you're not restricted by character count. You can include a few tags in your posts to get connected. While deciding on hashtag for branding, it is advisable to create brand specific hashtags. Try to keep it as unique and crisp as possible. Try multiple variant of hashtags such as brand specific hashtags, general hashtags, and trending hashtags, to get noticed in searches.

Examples of brand specific hashtags are:

#PutACanOnIt-Red Bull

#TweetFromTheSeat-Charmin

#OreoHorrorStories-Oreo

#WantAnR8-Audi

An ideal general hashtag should be prepared with two words over a single word to make it meaningful e.g. rather than #QL, #AskQL is a better hashtag.

2. Consistently interact with your followers

Once you get follower/s, do not shy away to stay engaged. Constantly post impressive content which your followers find relevant to their interest and business. Avoid throwing random posts, i.e. once in a week or ten in a go, as far as possible. At least, twice a day posting is requisite. Once your followers start increasing, you can start posting three to four times a day. Consistency matters most! According to Anthony Carbone, "If you stick to a niche and show authenticity and passion in your posts, you will find a strong following"

The more people you can dynamically involve and persuade to comment on your content (images/videos), the better for you. Since, it will inculcate the interest for others who want to contribute or comment on your content as well.
