How to Get Followers on Instagram Without Posting

Growing your Instagram followers is already a challenge. But getting more followers on Instagram without posting is even harder.

This is because you’re not able to utilize any hashtags.

Fortunately, there is a method you can use to grow your Instagram followers without posting and I’ll share this method in this article.

To get more followers on Instagram without posting, you can join follow for follow communities/groups for Instagram like Followchain as it allows you to self-promote your Instagram for free.

That way, you don’t have to post at all to get followers.

Therefore, in this article, I’ll explain how to get more followers on Instagram (real and active ones) without posting in three simple steps.

How to get followers on Instagram without posting

Here’s how you can get followers on Instagram without posting:

  1. Step 1: Share your Instagram link on F4F subreddits
  2. Step 2: Follow others that interest you
  3. Step 3: Send a direct message

Step 1: Share your Instagram link on F4F subreddits

Open Reddit, and register for an account (if you haven’t already) by going to reddit.com/register in your browser. Once you’ve signed up, verify your email address in your inbox.

Make sure to check your junk/spam mail if you haven’t received the verification email. It usually takes up to 5 minutes.

Once you’ve signed up and logged in, go to the r/FollowForFollow subreddit, post your Instagram link, and a short description about yourself.

Step 2: Follow others that interest you

Next, browse the home page of r/FollowForFollow and follow others that are in the same niche as you. This will greatly increase your engagement rates (since both parties enjoy each other’s content).

Once you’ve found someone of interest, click on their link and follow them on Instagram.

Alternatively, you can search for their username on Instagram.

Step 3: Send a direct message

Once you’ve followed the user, send them a direct message saying that you’re from Followchain by tapping on the ‘message’ button.

If the account you’re following is a private one, tap on the triple-dot icon on the top right-hand corner of your screen to send a message.

Instagram message

By sending them a direct message saying you’re from Reddit, the user will know that you’re from the community and will follow you back.

Typically, the user will follow you back within 24 hours once you’ve sent a message.

If they haven’t followed you back (which is highly unlikely), simply unfollow them.

Restrictions

Do not repetitively follow or direct message as it will result to an action block.

If you get action blocked, it may last for several hours, a day or more which will negatively affect your growth efforts.

To prevent the action block, make sure to follow and direct message in an interval of 10 minutes.

Potential results

Reddit is a great way to self-promote your Instagram and connect with people in your niche.

You can gain 10-20 followers daily using the above method to get more followers on Instagram without having to post a single photo.

The best part is, it’s completely free!

You can also self-promote your Instagram in other follow for follow communities/groups.

How do some people have so many followers but have little to no posts?

Some people have so many followers but have little to no posts because they might have archived or deleted most of their posts.

In addition, they might have a lot of friends they know in real life.
