How To: Getting More Likes On Your Instagram Photos


If you run a business and want to boost your customer base, using the methods listed below is a great way to market your products or content.

Especially now that Facebook users can automatically share their Instagram “Likes” on their Facebook account, which means when a person likes a photo on Instagram, this activity will show on Facebook's news feed.

For example, when someone liked a photo of you on Instagram, your photos will show up on their news feed and that means, more exposure.

Therefore, the more likes you get, the more business you get in return.

These methods has been tested. I have done these myself and they're actually effective. I used to get half of the likes I am getting now.

How to Gain More Instagram Likes:

#1 Add #Hashtags on your caption

This is my favorite trick! Using hashtags especially the most popular ones will definitely gain you more likes such as: #photooftheday #bestoftheday #selfie #instaphoto #picoftheday #instagood. I actually get more likes when I use hashtags (use only relevant tags though). Take note though, your Instagram profile must be set to public to get MORE likes on Instagram.

Here are the top 20 tags on Instagram:

  1. #instagood
  2. #me
  3. #cute
  4. #tbt
  5. #instamood
  6. #iphonesia
  7. #tweegram
  8. #picoftheday
  9. #happy
  10. #bestoftheday
  11. #followme
  12. #igers
  13. #instadaily
  14. #iphonesia
  15. #photooftheday
  16. #love
  17. #iphoneonly
  18. #instagramhub
  19. #jj
  20. #beautiful

You may also download Apps that lets you easily copy popular tags on your mobile and so you won't need to type these tags manually.

Here are the Apps you can download:

  1. TagsForLikes
  2. Instatags
  3. Tagstagram

Or to make it MORE easier for you, I've written down the most popular tags below. Store it on your "notes" or somewhere else then just copy whenever you post an Instagram photo.

General tags:

#instagood #instamood #iphonesia #igers #instadaily #tweegram #instagramhub #follow #bestoftheday #iphoneonly #igdaily #picstitch #beautiful #followme #webstagram #jj #picoftheday #fun #smile

Selfie tags:

#selfie #me #instagood #instamood #iphonesia #igers #instadaily #tweegram #instagramhub #follow #bestoftheday #iphoneonly #igdaily #picstitch #beautiful #followme #webstagram #jj #picoftheday

If you don't want to make your profile public, there are other ways you can gain more likes on your photos such as:

#2 Upload Photos at the right time

Add Instagram photos when most people are online. For example, add photos after dinner time since that's when most of your friends are done their errands.

#3 Comment or Like on a friend's photo

Be a little friendly! Interact with other people on Instagram. Take some time to like your friend's photos or add some relevant comment! Using this method will most likely make your friends do the same.

#4 Make a photo collage

OK, I, myself get more attracted to people who create a photo collage. It looks more fun to me. It has more flavor. I also get more likes when I make a collage, where I take multiple shots and combine together to turn them into a single image. Get creative. Get fancy! See example below:

Insta Collage

Looks more fun and more detailed, right?

Here are some of my favorite Apps I use to make collage photos: (Available for Android & iOS users)

  1. Instacollage - the most easiest and convenient one. You can get this for free or $0.99 to remove the ads!
  2. Pic Stitch
  3. Instaframe
