Best Instagram Hack from E-Commerce Fashion Brand
Our top instagram growth hack is to do co-giveaways with other brands in a similar niche to ours. We both pick a product to giveaway, have photo’s of the products taken together and both share at the same time.

Example 2: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZGypvhgSO0/?taken-by=onetribeapparel
The entry setup is very simple we simply ask people to be following both accounts and leave a comment tagging two friends who’d also want to win.
Every time we’ve done this we’ve gained a thousand followers or more which is much more than we usually gain when working with influencers.
If you’re not a brand you could still apply this tactic by working with a brand to have them giveaway a product to your followers or you and a friend in a similar niche could offer some sort of service or perk to your followers. For instance, you could let the winner pick your next blog post or video topic or send them something from your closet.
The whole point though is to work with someone in a similar niche and follower size and help each other out by exposing each others fans to the other account.
DECO MIAMI, 0-10k in 15 months organically
My Instagram tip (not so much a hack) is to buy a DSLR and invest in your own content. I built a following for my product brand organically by posting my own seemingly professional photos and only reposting photos from customers if they are exceptionally good.
- Ask customers to take photos of the product and tag the company in the photos
My name is Adam Watson I am the director of www.hollywoodmirrors.co.uk, Instagram is now our biggest traffic source to our website.
The number one tactic we use to grow our Instagram following is to ask our customers to take photos of our product and tag our company in the photos. This is a really simple task and requires little effort for big results. It is also great for providing content for your own Instagram feed.
Getting your products on your customers feeds is a great trusted endorsement as their friends and followers will see it and trust their opinion of their friends. this method is great for growing a brand.
It is more genuine than influencer marketing where payment for promotion is involved as this is a natural endorsement. I ask customers to tag the product by including a leaflet inside the package they receive and also on their order confirmation email.
