Best Services I have Found

UPDATED 1/27/13

THIS ARTICLE HAS BEEN VIEWED 36,000 times due to that I felt I should update it AGAIN

FIRST ONE THING YES I DO HAVE 57000
REAL FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM
BUT COULD NOT HAVE DONE IT 
WITHOUT THE 2 SERVICES BELOW.

They exploded me from 1200 followers to 8
then from 8 to 15 so on and so on try it out
they are 5 bucks and U endorse them.





I average 900 likes per picture overall, BUT (1400 likes per picture, the last 36, since using these tips) is it because I take the best photos in the world? NO
It is because I have cracked the code and I am going to share it with you!

Timing is everything they say. Well they were right I have mapped out the ideal times for you to post your photos and on what days. PAY ATTENTION posting the pic just 1 hour earlier could make a 70 percent or more difference!

I H AVE 80,000 FOLLOWERS do 30 shout outs a day and still average 1129 likes per pic IBoommedia on IG

BY THE WAY other services I have used that helped me get to where I am today on Instagram

IMPORTANT WEBSITES TO REMEMBER




These really work and amazingly, wait until you try it! I am @IboomMedia on Instagram and have 50,000 followers and average 1129 likes per photo and 56 comments. GO to STATIGRAM.com I use it daily..

Ok great first off take a look at this as a bonus meant to include in the document but easier to read here and has helped MANY clients



Check out my account to see for yourself this was done in 30 days as far as the followers I got! I have the proof with the picture from statigram with likes and followers. I gained 1100 followers a day even now.



Just an average photo of likes in 20 minutes
That link will show you my acct. and that I did do it, now here is how I did it.

Here you go, Ok All of this works takes a little time each day 15 to 20 minutes on your side there is no magic bullet but my method is 20 times faster and a higher ratio of people follow back.

Work 20-30 times faster than anyone else’s method... here we go

OK so I set up my account and in 30 days had 35000 followers and 60 days 68,000. An extra 400 come in daily to this very day for 68010 as of writing this.  Here is how I did it.



 I search for hash tags like friendly, LIKE, ADD, FOLLOW SMILE HAPPY NICE LAUGHING as they seem to have a good outlook on things and follow back more often, I viewed their followers always view someone’s FOLLOWERS not who they are following and always check to make sure they have more followers then they are following. What I mean by ratio is if they are following 2000 people see if they have less than 1000 followers.

If they do follow their followers.  ie following 2700 but have 1000 followers. Then follow 200 of their followers that is the limit then find another person and do it again. The average nationally is 9 percent follow back while mine is 78 percent quite a difference. Let it sit overnight then the next day if you want to unfollow you can I personally do not and my account has blasted off!

HOW TO ENHANCE YOUR INSTAGRAM EXPERIENCE
.

These four apps will enhance your Instagram experience, from helping you to find specific photos to making your own photos more creative, so prepare to spend even more time on Instagram!

Instamap

Instamap, a fun app for iPad and iPhone for use with Instagram, allows you to browse through Instagram pictures by location, tag or user. No matter what part of the world or which tag other users choose, you can see the corresponding photos as they're posted. Photos can be viewed in tile view or as pins on a map.

Don't miss these other great iPhone camera apps >>
100 Cameras in 1

While Instagram included some great filters, not all of them appeal to every user and even the ones we do love can get stale over time. 100 Cameras in 1 offers 100 effects that can be mixed and matched. Simply take a photo, edit it in 100 Cameras in 1 and then export it right into Instagram or share with others via Facebook, Flickr, SmugMug, email or DropBox
Labelbox


If you've ever wanted to add your own words to your Instagram photos, you'll love Labelbox, an easy-to-use photo labeling app that offers beautiful tapes that stylishly labels your photos. Simply select one of the 11 free labels, swipe and add your text. If you love those labels and want to experiment with even more, you can buy 12 more within the app. Once you've created your final product, simply save and import to Instagram. Labelbox also allows you to post directly to popular social sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.




































Price: Free


Wordfoto

Wordfoto  allows you to choose your own words to turn your photos into unique word-based art. This app offers eight easy-to-use presets and also includes a wide variety of customization features. You can play with colors, fonts and shadows to create your own work of art. Once you're done, you can easily upload your saved photo to Instagram and other social sharing sites.


ANDROID APP

I researched applications available for Android that can help you enhance and improve your photographs. Here are a few apps for simple and quick image editing to get you started!
Photo Editing
For basic image editing, Adobe Photoshop Express is a great application! It gives you the ability to alter exposure, saturation, tint, contrast & brightness quickly for simple image edits.



Combining Multiple Photos

Everyone loves combining multiple photos into one! A simple and easy to use application, Diptic, allows you to combine up to four images into one single frame. Be sure to check out this Photo Tips blog on combining images for some great tips!

Content-Aware Retouching

Have you ever captured the perfect shot right when someone starts to walks through the frame? Or maybe you want to remove those unsightly wall plugs & switches in order to redirect focus to the decor. While happy accidents can create beautiful “right place, right time” photographs, the TouchRetouch application can help remove unwanted content from photos!






























Now back to getting followers again

STAY AWAY from following people that have 1000 or  5000 followers but only follow back 100 or 200 they will not follow you back

 You will have a very high chance they follow back IF YOU LIKE ONE OR 2 OF THEIR PICS THEM FOLLOW THEM YOU WILL GET LIKES AND FOLLOWERS I DO IT EVERY DAY and I get a ton of IG action...stay away from the big fish people with over 5000 followers their followers are not as likely to follow back until you yourself are a big fish HA funny how that works… Also to triple your chance they follow back like one of their pics. Remember in a few days you can just unfollow everyone but you will still have your followers.

VERY IMPORTANT to set a daily minute schedule whatever the case do it daily or until you hit your personal goal. So for 20 minutes a day do this and in 1 month you will have thousands of followers YES I have confirmed this with over 100 people

The method I am telling you to do speeds this up times 20-30 trust me.

I simply followed them one at a time as many as I could each day I set a time every morning at 6 am to 615am. I did this every day for 15 minutes a day and the followers started coming in. In fact they come in to this day. Remember IG set a new rate limit when you hit that limit go from following people to just liking peoples photos until the rate limit is lifted 5 minutes or so then start following again.

I hit the popular page with my own  account 3 times which is great have photos with 4400 3800 and 3400 likes and over 200 comments each.

ALWAYS Share your photos on other social networks. These include Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Tumblr, Flickr, and Posterous. If you don’t have accounts for those social networks, start one up today.

I tend to share every photo on every possible network. For instance, I post daily deals solely on Twitter I share a on Twitter to push that fact we’re on Instagram.

 Link to your web.stagram somewhere from your website. Most of us strongly push Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, but if you’re serious about Instagram, then link to it as well…especially from your mobile website. You can Pin gplus tweet and many other features!

Be sure to blog that you are participating on Instagram. Also think about using Instagram photos on your blog occasionally and link to your profile or Instagram itself.

 Follow “Suggested Users” by clicking “@(YourAccountName)” tab and selecting “Find Friends” then ”Suggested Users”. Following users that have similar interests as you may encourage them to follow you in return. Just following everybody will gain minimal followers.

 Make sure “Photos are private option” is off. It should be by default. This is a no-brainer. Obviously if you wish to gain followers, your photos should not be private.

 Invite friends. This is a no-brainer too. Invite your friends, customers and followers of other social networks. You can do this through Instagram. These are the people most likely willing to follow you or your business. We now invite a handful of customers each day. I have 1400 FB friends 700 have instagram you can connect your FB and follow all your FB friends in 1 second they will follow back

 Only post your best pics. Quality is better than quantity. Try to make each picture interesting, engaging, mysterious, and colorful, with unique angles or just plain funny
 Thoroughly describe your images. You can comment on each picture so put some time into the writing.

I used nature flowers beautiful color blue and this got 1485 likes in 15 minutes
 Use hash tags, especially popular ones. Popular tags include #sky, #cat, #dog, #flower and #sunset. Tagging your photos with these hash tags, when appropriate, can increase the odds of your images being seen by others.

. Copy hash tags from “Notes” app. After you’ve used Instagram for a while, you’ll notice specific hash tags you’re commonly using. Keep them stored in “Notes” so you only have to copy/paste into Instagram.










 You can add the most popular or effective hash tags to the list so you don’t forget to use them. Be sure to only use hash tags appropriate for the photo being shared. This is an important step in helping you remember to use effective hash tags for each post. Hash tags will attract likes and follower’s if your posts/photos are worthy.

 Engage by following others and commenting/liking. By engaging with others, you will likely attract some followers, especially if your photos are interesting. Commenting on a persistent basis will help tremendously in attaining followers. Commenting on popular photos works very well, but be authentic with your comments and not advertorial.

 Geotagging is important like hash tags, geotagging  provides another data point that can be used to categorize and display content. On Instagram, each defined location has its own page, which includes a map of the location and any photos taken there.

 Announce your profile in an email blast to current friends followers etc letting them know you’re now on the photo sharing app.

 Add Instagram to your website too. Don’t just emails blast the fact that you’re on Instagram. Be sure to add Instagram on your website somewhere like you might do with Facebook and Twitter. If you have other social network icons floating around your company website, add Instagram too.

Update: The following are more tips I’ve added after using Instagram for a while.
Spectre

 Keep up with Instagram’s blog and participate with the numerous photo contests. One person to follow in particular is Instagram team member, Jessica Zollman ( @jayzombie) who holds a contest every weekend where everyone tries to snap a photo concerning a specific hash tag. Participating in the contest each week will gain you popularity and a few new friends.



. Don’t be afraid to comment on popular photos by celebrities, but be genuine with what you say. If you have nothing to really say, then don’t.





Use “likes” a bunch! People will return the favor and possibly start following you. You can use “like” liberally, but don’t get TOO crazy with it or people may actually stop following you. Instagrammers appreciate when you “like” their photos and generally return the love.

 Only follow those you care about or enjoy. I promise that you will enjoy Instagram more this way, and you’re more likely to continue participating and building your own circle of friends if you’re having fun.

 Sign up with followgram.me to make it even easier for people to find and follow you. This service offers an easy way for people to follow you outside of the actual Instagram app.

Use Instagram analytics services like Statigr.am to help put things in perspective with all kinds of historical data concerning your account. Statigr.am shows which of your photos have received the most “likes” over time, and which ones received the most comments. Try to look for consistent trends in your most popular images and try to capitalize on those strengths moving forward. Plain and simple: This service gives amazing insight and understanding of your Instagram account.

Be humorous with your comments. Everyone appreciates a good laugh and if you’re consistent, it will lead to more followers.

 Offer tips and advice. I started sharing mine in comments- which lead to more likes and eventually will lead to more followers.

 Thank people. At the end of the day, be sure to send thanks to everyone who commented on one of your photos. For instance, you would type something like: @jmhhackerinc  thanks for your comments! This is not only considerate but also represents social at its finest.

 Be genuine. Instagram is my favorite social network right now so I ask everyone to be genuine, have fun and snap away!

BONUS

Another way to gain more followers on Instagram is to hold a photo contest. Give away an SHOUTOUT movie tickets or something and require contest participants to follow you to qualify. You may have to do some legwork to market the contest, but it’ll be worth your time.
I gain a TON of action from doing this and you grow even bigger

Before hosting photo contests, you may want to participate in them first.

Also THE KEY Use Hash tags that is a key on your own photos,
Tagging your photos makes them easily found. Picture of the sun use very popular hash tag #sun, that photo will show up alongside thousands of others on the page for that tag.

Webstagram provides the top 100 tags. Make sure you use them!! The most popular hash tag on Instagram currently is #tweegram #iphoneography, Other popular tags include #sky, #cat, #dog, #flower and #sunset. Tagging triples the odds of your images being seen by others and followed


THE KEY

To get the most new followers on Instagram is following those that have a good ratio like I said they follow 3300 but have 1400 followers then follow 200 of their followers. DO not try to follow someone’s that has 3000 followers and follows 300 Once you have built up a large following feel free to go for bigger accounts.  It will call the other's attention to your profile they'll likely follow it. If you set a daily 10-15 min period of time to  follow the type of person I described you will get a 20 times higher chance of a follow back speeding up the process for you immensely

VERY LONG EXPOSURE don't shoot with a full moon SLR with bulb mode lowest ISO setting with tripod wide aperture exposure trial and error
REMEMBER only follow people on the followers list of someone’s account. Once you have your own followers click one pull up their followers and click away you will find people stick in groups and will follow you back..
Another tip go to the popular page and follow the people that are liking or commented on the popular photos that means they are online right that second and will see you follow or like their pic. They will most likely follow back they do for me!


ANOTHER KEY
Like and Comment on Other Photos ya it is easy to say but most of us do not do it. Try it out be amazed at the results

One of the easiest ways to grab tons of followers is to "like" a ton of the photos whether they are in your existing feed or outside your network. If you have a compliment or comment to make, take a sec and do it, taking the few seconds it requires to comment on another user's photo can drive new viewers to your profile.


I did all this and got 35000 30 days you must put aside a time each day to do this like 5 to 515 for example and do it until your number of followers are attained it won’t take long I can tell you that as I have done it for myself and 9
friends. People will follow you back they just will. Have a few photos taking obviously on your profile and you will be good to go.

PEOPLE LOVE ANIMALS ANY KIND YOU HAPPEN TO SEE I HAVE SNAPPED 10 photos of deer snake beer turtles birds they average 1800 likes each

THE MAGIC HAPPENS HERE

So really to be frank if you simply go to anyone’s followers not someone to big, once again, but I prefer good ratios and just follow them watch as people start following you back as they do go to that persons followers and continue do this process until you are satisfied...you can also UNFOLLOW people later one if you wish on webstagram or gramfeed if you want a great ratio...

So 2-4 hours total time put in whether in a day or 10 minutes a day for 30 days  will get you thousands of followers go longer you can hit 100,000 or more all up to you now. I am here if you have any questions the key is to have fun doing it as the new likes on your photos are coming in as non-stop followers are coming in when you see one of your photos get nearly 5000 likes it really is awesome!

To unfollow once you have followed many a quick and easy way is IGExorcist, a free service that allows you to determine followers who have not been engaged with you in recent times.

How to get on Instagram’s suggested Users List
.
When you sign up there is a Suggested Users, IG users who the Instagram Team suggests you follow. Instagram launched the Suggested Users List last This feature is similar to the Twitter tool .
If you are on it you are set!). Being on The Suggested Users list means your follower numbers will suddenly surge and keep on rising by the hour.
.

You find the Suggested Users List, through your Profile, then Find Friends. The Suggested Users List is also presented to all new users when registering for Instagram
Here is what instagram looks for to make the list quoted from instagram themselves!
- A Suggested User posts beautiful, original content and brings a unique perspective to Instagram.

- Instagram is a photo-sharing community. In promoting Suggested Users, Instagram seeks to highlight members of the community with exemplary content and conduct in line with its Community Guidelines.

- Instagram is always looking for new and exciting content to surface. To present new users with a curated set of talented users, they continually review, add and remove users from the list The list will be designed to be refresh in an ongoing way rather than stand as today’s permanent suggested users list.

- Suggested Users act as community ambassadors, and help cultivate the larger Instagram community.

- Be careful. Instagram is a powerful tool for brands and businesses. They “welcome” collaborations between brands and users, but do not include users on the list whose photos could cause confusion over Instagram’s involvement in paid partnerships or brand endorsements*

People in the list should not use their streams for “business” if they want to remain in the list. You can read Suggested User Guidelines in Instagram Official Help Center here:

Some tips.
.
In the last few months I’ve heard a lot of different stories some other people got it after sending a mail to Instagram Team (explaining their “credentials” and proof of involvement within the app). Some applied directly through mail and asked to be part of Suggested Users Lists. Being active in Instagram communities’ development or leading yourself a cool project around Instagram can be a strong asset.
.
This is all my knowledge about the subject on Suggested Users List  GL.
