How to Gain More Instagram Followers as an Entertainer

As an entertainer, it is important to have a strong social media presence. Instagram is one of the most popular platforms for networking and reaching new fans. There are so many things you need to know about this platform if you want to be successful, from basic posting to how to unfollow everyone on Instagram, and it can be overwhelming. Gaining followers is also not easy –  especially if you are just starting.

Anyone who has ever tried to grow their Instagram following knows that it’s not as easy as it seems. With so much competition out there, gaining traction can be tough. But don’t give up just yet! There are a few things you can do to help increase your following and get your content in front of more people. Here are some tips to help you get more followers on Instagram and grow your following.

Post Entertaining Content

One of the most important rules to follow on Instagram is to make sure that you are posting entertaining content, and unfortunately, no one is exempt from following this rule. It’s important to keep in mind that when people scroll through Instagram, they are most likely bored, so boring content isn’t going to motivate anyone to follow you.

As an entertainer, you should have interesting content that people will want to see, such as behind-the-scenes stuff (if you’re allowed to post it), snips from interviews, anything from events you participate in, and more.

Make Sure to Use Hashtags

Another extremely important rule to follow on Instagram is to always use hashtags whenever you post, and this is most important if you are still starting. Why should you do this? Well, hashtags make content easier to find for users by grouping content with similar hashtags together.

This means that by using hashtags you will be able to, at least theoretically, target your audience. This also means that you will most likely need to choose a niche, or have a particular style of posting (whether it be the content, the colors you choose to use, the style of photos, and more).


The next thing that you are going to want to do is focus on engaging since Instagram still is a social media platform, after all, so socializing will help you to be found. According to Instagram stats posted on Quantum Marketer, Instagram has a potential marketing reach of 849 million users, so chances are you’re going to be successful. There are many things that you can do to engage with your audience, from replying to comments, to commenting on other users’ posts.

A great way to initiate engagement with your posts is by using Stories (even though these won’t be shown to people who don’t follow you, they will help to improve engagement on posts, which increases your ranking on the platform).

Post Your Link Everywhere

Unfortunately, just sticking to Instagram won’t be enough to grow your followers, simply because there is a very good chance that people don’t even know that you are using Instagram and your account might not be shown to your audience.

A great way to combat this is by posting the link to your profile to as many places as possible. For example, if you have a website, you can post your link there. If you use Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, or any other social media platform, you should post your Instagram link there too.

Check Out Analytics

If you have managed to figure out how Instagram works, the next step is making sure that you have a creator account, since this will give you access to analytics. These analytics will be instrumental in reaching new Instagram followers.

You might be asking why, and the reason for that is because you need to know what people are clicking on to see your profile, what sort of impressions you are making, which posts got the most impressions, and which got the least. This will help you to identify what sort of content to be posting at any given time.

A Reason to Follow

Finally, the last thing that you should do is to give people a reason to follow you. What does this mean? This essentially means that people on Instagram don’t just follow random people; they follow what they are interested in.

One way to make sure people understand what your content is about is by having an attractive profile, and a bio that states what your account is all about. You should also make sure that your content has a style so that users can gauge what content to expect from you.
