3 Ways To Get Your Instagram posts On The Explore Page
Everyone wants their post to land on the explore page. The problem is that we don’t know how to go about it.
I’m here to help. Here is what you need to do.
- Post viral content
- Boost engagement ASAP after posting
- Participate in engagement groups
You need to understand that you can’t really plan on any of your content going viral. All you can do is hope that it Goes viral.
How to go viral
1. Creating or Curating Content that Goes Viral on Instagram
The first thing you’ll need to do is to find or create content that has the potential to go viral.
What does that mean?
It means that the content that you are posting can it reach on explore page?
If you want an idea of what a viral content is just check your explore page. From checking your explore page you’ll get a clear picture of what you need to be posting.
If you run a theme page search for content that is already viral. You need to find similar accounts in your niche and look at their content. What you’re looking for are posts that get 2-3x more engagement than average.
This is the kind of content you want to repost or emulate when creating your own.
The more engagement you get, the better your chances are of going viral on the Instagram Explore Page.
2. Gain Lots of Engagement — Fast!
If you want to land on the explore page you need to get as much engagement as possible within 1hr of you posting.
That means doing EVERYTHING you can to boost engagement immediately after posting.
If your post lands on explore page frequently you’re account will grow at a massive rate.
This is how it works.
You need high engagement to land a post on the Explore Page. Once there, more people will see your content, resulting in more likes, comments and follows.
This in turn causes even more people to see your content, which results in more likes, comments, and followers.
It’s essentially this Snowball Effect that will cause your post to spread further and further until it reaches that viral state.
So the more engagement you get, as soon after posting as possible, the better your chances will be of going viral. That’s the goal you’re aiming for.
Ways to increase engagement
1. Post when your followers are most active.
2. Add a call to action button. Your captions should be well written. Preferably it should be a question.
3. Use the best hashtags for your posts.
3. Engagement Groups + Networks
You need a real engagement group not those WhatsApp groups whereby people aren’t interested in engaging with your posts.
You need a group with people who are committed to helping each other grow and improve their engagement.
Engagement groups will help you achieve your goal by helping you get that big initial boost of engagement. Engagement groups consist of a bunch of committed people, who have decided to work together to help one another boost their content and grow their accounts.
Everybody needs to work together to help each other go grow. The goal should be for everyone to grow not just one person to grow.
It is very hard to grow on your own. You need help from your peers to grow faster.
If you’re forming your own groups there are a few things to keep in mind:
1. The more the merrier.
2. The bigger the accounts, the better.
3. Commitment is key.
I’m starting an engagement group of 30-60 people.
1. Have 7k+ followers
2. Be willing to help each other grow.
3. Be orderly and follow the rules.
