How We Became Suggested Users on Instagram

Hey guys today we’re talking about how we became suggested users on Instagram. Instagram can be a great tool for picking up clients. Collectively we’ve made tens of thousands of dollars off an app that we originally downloaded for the Valencia filter.

YouTube Tutorials

A few quick notes before you begin. One, there are a mountain of YouTube tutorials out there talking about how you can crush your Instagram game by cleaning it up, keeping it consistent, and committing to a theme. So we’re going to assume that you’ve seen those already and you already have that juicy base knowledge.

Two, it’s a bit of work to get suggested, but we have some tips of how we think that happens. No one outside of Instagram really knows how they select their suggestive users and on top of that, the algorithm for it probably always changes, so we don’t know if these tips matter or going to say ever did what we do know is that we didn’t get suggested until it starts focusing on these tips.

Engagement and Suggested Users

Third note – just because they’re suggested does not mean your engagement will increase long term. For example, we’ve both been suggested twice and our engagement did not increase.

If you’re not already, go follow Instagram’s account. They post a weekend hashtag project challenge every week. If you’re not familiar with the concept, they give you a hashtag on Friday and you have until it changes over to create and post a correlating photo. We need to take these pretty seriously because honestly they’re really fun and they spark creativity. We’ve even had a couple of photos featured from doing them so it’s just a great way to get more exposure for your work and to catch the eye of the good people of Instagram.

Connecting with the Community

Instagram is a community-based app, and they place a lot of importance on that. So it’s important for you to connect with other users out there and like and leave genuine comments on their posts. We believe Instagram’s algorithm finds the comments to be genuine when it’s unique, has four more words, and relates to the post. It’s also important connect with users in real life at Instagram meetups.

If you follow their account, they’ll tell you when and where those are. We’ve met great people at meetups over the years and we’ve been able to refer work to and receive work from the photographers that we’ve met there.

Interactions with Prominent Members

By tagging you in a photo, commenting on your photo, or liking your photo, interaction with important users gives you a higher rating. This behavior is important, as it shows genuine interest in the community and not just a desire to boost your own social media standing.

Final Thoughts

This might be an unpopular opinion, but we think that being a suggested user doesn’t actually matter. Instagram and social media don’t actually matter. These platforms certainly help you gain exposure and even get jobs, but at the end of the day, your follower count and your engagement ratios aren’t measures of the quality of photos that you or we take.
