If there is one thing that makes people happy on social media profiles, it is getting likes for their posts.

You have created your Instagram account and you are sharing beautiful photos and videos that you have taken. These photos can be personal photos or photos of your product and brand. It is also your natural right to expect your posts to be liked by other users. By connecting your Instagram account with your Facebook and other social media accounts, you can increase the number of likes as well as the number of followers.

In this article, I will try to share with you how to get more likes instead of increasing followers on Instagram.

1- Set Theme in Your Posts

The posts of many successful instagram accounts are within the framework of a certain theme. While you are sharing your own, ask yourself what will be the main theme of my sharing. If you are a restaurant, you can share your most delicious menus.

Try to stick to the theme you’ve created, your followers will want continuity. If you are a travel company, sharing fashion related posts will decrease the interest of your followers.

2- Enjoy Your Shares

Of course, the way to gain more likes for your posts is to make good posts. In order for your followers or users who visit your account to like your posts, you need to share with high quality photos and photos with beautiful captions. Avoid sharing similar photos, it can be boring.

3- Let your headlines attract attention

After posting beautiful photos, use the same care when writing captions. I can say that the titles are the most important parts of the photos. Connect your followers to your photos with captions, create a story in them. Have them find a piece of themselves. In this sense, I can say that the best combination is beautiful posts and interesting titles.

4-Let your posts have time

Give your followers a hint on how much to share. This is where the continuity I mentioned above comes into play. How much you will share is related to how often and when you will share these shares. Avoid consuming all of your posts at once. Post on a specific calendar and at a specific time of the day. In this way, your followers will know when you will post, so your posts will get more likes.

An important thing to be aware of is to post once a day or a week and then disappear. If you do this, you will not get likes and your followers will decrease.

5- Interact with your followers

I mentioned this to you haha, maybe underlined in my previous articles, but it is a good place to mention it again here. Your followers will want to know that there are real people behind the posts they like. Show them that the post is not a robot and respond to their likes and comments.

From time to time, check out the accounts of your followers and like their posts, and even show that you value their posts by writing comments.

6- Share with hashtag

Recently, I have been getting so many questions about hashtags that the hashtag usage guide I created for this has been downloaded by hundreds of users and started to be used as a resource.

The use of hashtags is one of the most important tools that attract the attention of your followers and other users. Avoid using common hashtags as these will easily get lost among other posts. Create hashtags about your private and shares. Creating long and many hashtags will be spam sharing. It would be best to share a few hashtags that describe the message and content your posts want to give.

7- Edit Your Photos

While you are sharing, you can make your photos look beautiful by giving a color effect and thus increase the number of likes. Sometimes the ready-made filters on Instagram may not be enough and you may need to edit your posts with different applications. Do not hesitate to take time for this. You can give more beautiful effects to your photos with different applications such as Fotor and Collage.


Everyone will want their posts to get more likes. Thus, while your motivation to make more beautiful and interesting posts will increase, your number of followers will increase. So, what kind of strategies do you guys follow to get more likes and do these methods work? You can share it with me and other visitors below.
