Using Instagram For Music Promotion & Building A New Fanbase On Instagram

Before you even start to think about using Instagram to help promote your music, you need to build a following on Instagram first. I use a tool called Follow Adder for Instagram.

This is a bot that basically carries out the Follow for Follow method, whereby you follow a certain amount of Targeted people with the intention that certain amount of the people that you have followed on Instagram will follow you back. @ 1:50

While there is much debate about the follow for follow the method and whether it is ethical or not, even if you pay for exposure on Instagram's ad platform you are still technically paying for that follow back.Who's to say that a follower gained from Instagram's ad platform is a better

I am not the biggest fan of bots and the follow for follow method but Follow adder is a very simple tool to use and it does speed up my time at building up a TARGETED FAN BASE on Instagram.


That word Targeted is important to remember as it is completely pointless following fans of the wrong genre of music like bands or rock music profiles on Instagram.

Stick to influential accounts on Instagram as more often than not they will have a more active and similar following to the music that you make. @ 3:01

You can use, keywords, Instagram handles, comments and photo like to attract the following of these influential accounts.

Like in hip hop I create music similar to Drakes producers so I would find Instagram accounts like Boi 1da, 40 Noah Shabibb, T-Minus and Metro Boomin.I could also attract the same type of audience using hashtags like #ovo, #drake,#octobersveryown, #startedfromthebottom, #hiphopbeats

I also use a tool called gramblr which helps me control my Instagram band page on my Computer. I found it quite frustrating going back and forth from my computer to my phone.It's very difficult to edit a music video or share a new hip hop beat on Instagram remotely from a mobile device. @ 4:11

I found that it made my music brand look cheap and unprofessional so when I started using gramblr to control my Instagram music page on my computer it made my music promotion on Instagram much more effective.

Try and add your @ handle in the images and videos that you post on Instagram.I see tons of bands and musicians on Instagram sharing links that won't work on Instagram.You only have on the clickable link on Instagram so make it count. Make sure it's a mobile optimized like with a good call to action.
