Perfect Hack To Get A Lot Of Instagram Followers

Perfect Hack To Get A Lot Of Instagram Followers

Instagram has become a popular social network these days. It is being used by celebrities to connect with their fans, professionals to find potential clients and businesses use it to stay in touch with their customers. However, like every other social network, you have to have a lot of following to get your voice heard. As humans, we want to be heard and thus it is only natural that we want to have a large number of people following us on Instagram.

Today, I am going to talk about an easy to follow process to win a large number of followers on Instagram. These are real people and not those fake accounts that follow everyone. The process is really simple and easy to follow if you are a little bit tech-savvy.

How to attract followers on Instagram

Before we talk about how to get someone to follow you on Instagram, we are going to understand how to attract their attention to your account. For this, we will need to find out when do you open your Instagram app on your phone.

You engage with the Instagram app when you get a notification from them. So we need a way to have Instagram send a notification about us to their users. Now comes the hard part. How do we get Instagram to do that? For that, we need to take an action, such as like a potential target’s post, comment on it or follow them. Once you do that they will get a notification on their phone with your username and clicking on it, they will come to your profile on Instagram.

Once you succeed in getting them to your Instagram profile, you want to impress them. For this you want to have good quality pictures and videos posted on your account. If they like what they see, they will follow you.

This is basically something I learned from Dale Carnegie’s How to win friends and influence people. You show people that you care about what they have to say and they will positively reciprocate.

That’s about it. You are now an expert on how to attract users. Let us move to the part where we learn how to execute this.

How to use technology to gain followers

Now that you are an expert at getting someone to your Instagram account, we need to figure out two things.

  1. How do you get people to your Instagram account automatically
  2. How do you have an account so impressive that others follow you

Luckily, there are tools that can help us achieve this.

The first tool is a Chrome extension called Image Downloader. You can add it to your Chrome browser from this link. This plugin helps you download images from any webpage.

Once you have that plugin, you have two options to get images. You can get images from creative commons search, but you may have to resize them as Instagram does not support every image size.

Your second alternative will be to download images from other Instagram accounts. You can simply go to those accounts, load all the images by scrolling down and clicking on “Load more” button and then running the Chrome plugin.

Once you have the images head over to Fan Harvest. Fan Harvest is an Instagram automation tool that allows you to engage people as well as schedule posts on your images.

Once you have signed up for Fan Harvest, first go to Schedule Posts and using their Bulk Scheduler tool schedule all of the images you downloaded to go live on your Instagram account.

Once you have scheduled enough images, now we want to send users notifications. Fan Harvest allows you to create what they call promotion. A promotion takes in one or more hashtags and then finds posts that mention that hashtag. Then it likes and comments on those posts for you all day long. You can even follow these people or you can follow the followers of some other accounts. You can control almost everything as per your preference.

Fan Harvest also has a tool to send direct messages to your followers. You can thus set it to greet your followers with a nice message.

That is my secret that I have used to grow accounts to over 5 digits in a month. I am sure you will have similar success. If you have a question or need a detailed explanation on any of the three tools we discussed just leave a comment and I will answer it.

7 Powerful Habits To Win In Office Politics

7 Powerful Habits To Win In Office Politics

Office politics – a taboo word for some people. It’s a pervasive thing at the workplace.

In its simplest form, workplace politics is simply about the differences between people at work; differences in opinions, conflicts of interests are often manifested as office politics. It all goes down to human communications and relationships.

There is no need to be afraid of office politics. Top performers are those who have mastered the art of winning in office politics. Below are 7 good habits to help you win at the workplace:

1. Be Aware You Have a Choice

The most common reactions to politics at work are either fight or flight. It’s normal human reaction for survival in the wild, back in the prehistoric days when we were still hunter-gatherers.

Sure, the office is a modern jungle, but it takes more than just instinctive reactions to win in office politics. Instinctive fight reactions will only cause more resistance to whatever you are trying to achieve; while instinctive flight reactions only label you as a pushover that people can easily take for granted. Neither options are appealing for healthy career growth.

Winning requires you to consciously choose your reactions to the situation. Recognize that no matter how bad the circumstances, you have a choice in choosing how you feel and react. So how do you choose? This bring us to the next point…

2. Know What You Are Trying to Achieve

When conflicts happen, it’s very easy to be sucked into tunnel-vision and focus on immediate differences. That’s a self-defeating approach. Chances are, you’ll only invite more resistance by focusing on differences in people’s positions or opinions.

The way to mitigate this without looking like you’re fighting to emerge as a winner in this conflict is to focus on the business objectives. In the light of what’s best for the business, discuss the pros and cons of each option. Eventually, everyone wants the business to be successful; if the business don’t win, then nobody in the organization wins.

It’s much easier for one to eat the humble pie and back off when they realize the chosen approach is best for the business.

By learning to steer the discussion in this direction, you will learn to disengage from petty differences and position yourself as someone who is interested in getting things done. Your boss will also come to appreciate you as someone who is mature, strategic and can be entrusted with bigger responsibilities.

3. Focus on Your Circle of Influence

At work, there are often issues which we have very little control over. It’s not uncommon to find corporate policies, client demands or boss mandates which affects your personal interests.

Gossiping and complaining are common responses to these events that we cannot control. But think about it, other than that short term emotional outlet, what tangible results do gossiping really accomplish? In most instances, none.

Instead of feeling victimized and angry about the situation, focus on the things that you can do to influence the situation — your circle of influence. This is a very empowering technique to overcome the feeling of helplessness. It removes the victimized feeling and also allows others to see you as someone who knows how to operate within given constraints.

You may not be able to change or decide on the eventual outcome but, you can walk away knowing that you have done the best within the given circumstances.

Constraints are all around in the workplace; with this approach, your boss will also come to appreciate you as someone who is understanding and positive.

4. Don’t Take Sides

In office politics, it is possible to find yourself stuck in between two power figures who are at odds with each other. You find yourself being thrown around while they try to outwit each other and defend their own position; all at the expense of you getting the job done. You can’t get them to agree on a common decision for a project, and neither of them want to take ownership of issues; they’re too afraid they’ll get stabbed in the back for any mishaps.

In cases like this, focus on the business objectives and don’t take side with either of them – even if you like one better than the other. Place them on a common communication platform and ensure open communications among all parties, so that no one can claim “I didn’t say that”.

By not taking sides, you’ll help to direct conflict resolution in an objective manner. You’ll also build trust with both parties. That’ll help to keep the engagements constructive and focus on business objectives.

5. Don’t Get Personal

In office politics, you’ll get angry with people. It happens. There will be times when you feel the urge to give that person a piece of your mind and teach him a lesson. Don’t.

People tend to remember moments when they were humiliated or insulted. Even if you win this argument and get to feel really good about it for now, you’ll pay the price later when you need help from this person. What goes around comes around, especially at the workplace.

To win in the office, you’ll want to build a network of allies which you can tap into. The last thing you want during a crisis or an opportunity is to have someone screw you up because they harbor ill-intentions towards you – all because you’d enjoyed a brief moment of emotional outburst at their expense.

Another reason to hold back your temper is your career advancement. Increasingly, organizations are using 360 degree reviews to promote someone. Even if you are a star performer, your boss will have to fight a political uphill battle if other managers or peers see you as someone who is difficult to work with. The last thing you’ll want is to make it difficult for your boss to champion you for a promotion.

6. Seek to Understand, Before Being Understood

The reason people feel unjustified is because they felt misunderstood. Instinctively, we are more interested in getting the others to understand us than to understand them first. Top people managers and business leaders have learned to suppress this urge.

Surprisingly, seeking to understand is a very disarming technique. Once the other party feels that you understand where he/she is coming from, they will feel less defensive and be open to understand you in return. This sets the stage for open communications to arrive at a solution that both parties can accept.

Trying to arrive at a solution without first having this understanding is very difficult – there’s little trust and too much second-guessing.

7. Think Win-Win

As mentioned upfront, political conflicts happen because of conflicting interests. Perhaps due to our schooling, we are taught that to win, someone else needs to lose. Conversely, we are afraid to let someone else win, because it implies losing for us.

In business and work, that doesn’t have to be the case.

Learn to think in terms of “how can we both win out of this situation?” This requires that you first understand the other party’s perspective and what’s in it for him.

Next, understand what’s in it for you. Strive to seek out a resolution that is acceptable and beneficial to both parties. Doing this will ensure that everyone truly commit to the agreed resolution and will not pay only lip-service to it.

People simply don’t like to lose. You may get away with win-lose tactics once or twice but very soon, you’ll find yourself without allies in the workplace.

Thinking win-win is an enduring strategy that builds allies and help you win in the long term.
