10 Proven Tips to Quickly Grow Your Instagram Following as A Music Producer By Using Reels
Written by SoundOracle
Instagram has always been a great place for music producers to foster and grow a loyal following, but Instagram Reels has taken things to the next level.
The Instagram algorithm is currently favoring Instagram reels, which is resulting in a disproportionately high level of growth for just about everyone. This is great news for music producers who are looking to grow their following. By following a few simple steps, you can see growth as you've never seen before.
Find the topics or themes to create your Instagram reels about - without being overwhelmed
Determining what type of video to post is actually easier than you think.
When it comes to creating content for your Instagram reel, it's important to utilize the topics that are trending to your advantage. By researching and analyzing the trending topics in videos in the producer community, you can create content that is highly engaging and likely to be seen by a large audience.
Once you've done some research, and found what is ranking the highest, analyze the data from your research and make Instagram reels of your own using the same topics, and themes. Just put your own twist on it. There's no need to reinvent the wheel.
Collaborate with other producers on Instagram reels
Collaborating with other producers using the Instagram collaborate feature is a great way to get more views and followers. This allows you and the person you collaborate with to leverage each other's audiences so you both can get more followers from each other.
Use trending music and sounds in your Instagram reel to get more views and followers
If you use trending sounds and music in your Instagram reels, the Instagram algorithm will show your content to more people. This is because the algorithm picks up on what is popular and trending and gives preference to that content. Even if you use the sound low in the background, you will still get the same result.
Use popular hashtags in your Instagram reel caption
If you want to get more views and followers for your Instagram reel, make sure to use popular hashtags in the caption. Hashtags are a great way to get your content seen by more people, as they help it show up in search results. When choosing hashtags, try to use ones that are relevant to your content. That way, you can be sure that your reel will be seen by lots of people!
Keep your Instagram Reels short
When it comes to creating an Instagram reel, keeping it short is key. Videos that are seven seconds to 24 seconds long tend to perform the best and have the most replay value right now, so try to stick to that length. However, if you are teaching something in your reel, it may not be possible to keep it short. Just remember less is more.
Use strong calls to action in your Instagram reel caption
A call to action is a great way to get more engagement on your reel. By telling people what you want them to do, such as 'share' or 'comment', you increase the chances that they will actually do it! Not only that, but calls to action also make your reel more exciting and interesting to watch. So if you want more people to interact with your content, make sure to use calls to action in your caption.
Share your Instagram reel on other social media platforms
If you want even more people to see your reel, share it on other social media platforms! This is a great way to get more views and followers, as you'll be reaching people who don't even have Instagram. You can share your reel on Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and any other platform that you're active on. Just make sure to use relevant hashtags so that people can find your content easily.
Post Instagram reels on the best days and times when your followers are all on Instagram
If you want your Instagram reel to be seen band shared, you need to post it when your followers are all on the app. This is a key component to seeing massive follower growth. If you have an Instagram business account or an Instagram creator account, you can use the insights Instagram provides to figure out what the best times are for you to post. If you don't have either of those, don't worry! There is still a way to find out when your followers are online.
Here's what you need to do:
- Check out when your posts get the most engagement. Look at the likes, comments, and views on your recent posts and see what time they were posted.
- Based on the data from your posts, start experimenting with posting times. Try posting at different times of the day and on different days of the week.
- After you've experimented for a while, you should start to see patterns emerge. Once you've figured out when your followers are most active, make sure to post during those times for maximum engagement!
Post Instagram reels often and consistently to see rapid follower growth
This is one of the most important factors when it comes to growing your Instagram following. If you can post reels often and at the same peak time of day each time, your following will grow exponentially.
Posting Instagram reels three times a week will get you growth, but if you want to see quick results, post a reel every day. Consistency is key when it comes to growing your following on Instagram.
Don't Be Afraid to Post About Whatever You Want and To Be Yourself in Your Instagram Reels
It's only scary if you're afraid. Don't be scared to show your personality and be yourself. You must overcome your fear of creating and posting reels that are "perfect." The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the process. Just keep the results in mind.
There's no one way to post an Instagram reel. You can post whatever you want, as long as it's entertaining and engaging. Be creative, be yourself, and don't be afraid to experiment!
By following the tips in this article, you'll be able to create Instagram reels that have a chance of going viral. By using trending hashtags, calls to action, and data from Instagram Reels analytics, you can figure out what content performs well and post it at the right times for maximum engagement. So what are you waiting for? Start creating your next reel today!
