This way when your followers will share your content on their story, your reach to their followers will increase and ultimately there will be more views.
3) Upload story before uploading post/reel -
Whenever you upload a reel or a post, it needs to be preceded by an Instagram story related to it and that Insta story must give a gist about what you’re going to post next on your Instagram profile.
4) Ask your followers to save your post/reels -
This is a must-do for every individual who wants more views on the Instagram profile, this way people get more of your posts/reels in their explore feed which in turn brings your followers close to your Instagram page.
5) Create a community out of your active followers -
The best way to get more views on your Instagram reels/posts is to figure out which followers are the most active with respect to your page and ultimately bring them the content that they are looking forward to.
Your Instagram page will grow and will be able to attract more followers to the posts and reels.
6) Upload value adding reels regularly -
You need to be very specific with the content that you’re uploading, upload something that makes sense and is useful for your audience because this is how you will be able to build your audience on Instagram and ultimately increase your views on Instagram and build your profile as much as possible.
