This guide is going to provide you 7 genuine ways to get likes on Instagram and skyrocket your profile engagement and your earnings!

1. Post the Photos People Want to See

Often, people will post anything, such as their lunch, their cat, or empty beer bottles. If you want more likes, think of Instagram as your art gallery. Its purpose is to display only the best, high-quality pictures. High-quality pictures are apt to get the most likes on Instagram. These types of photos attract the most people:

  • Post the best personal photos that show you with your significant other, friends, and family members.

  • Post photos of unique views. People like unique photos of things they've never seen before.

  • Post photos of a cute pet. Only the best photos of your dog or kitty are guaranteed to get likes. Make sure your pet is doing something unique in the photo. Look at the like rate in my example. This cat post got 10x more engagement compared to my other posts on Instagram.

  • Don't post excessive pictures of your food. Everyone does this, so only post spectacular food photos.

  • Combine multiple photos into one shot by using Layout from Instagram: Collage. This way, you will be more likely to receive likes.You can place four similar images into one frame. Or show different parts of the same trip or occasion.

2. Applying Filters

Apply filters to your photos. This means using special apps to edit and filter your pictures. Almost all Bloggers and Influencers are using popular filters that give their photos a unique look.

They use Lightroom app to create consistent and good looking Instagram feeds. There are other apps you can use on your phone to make photos appealing and special like Camera+, Pro HDR, Snap-seed, or Pixlr-o-matic however, they may not be as convenient as Lightroom Mobile app.

3. Be Time Conscious

This is maybe the most important technical information that you will get from this article. Divide the day into 4 equal pieces and try posting in one of those time periods to find out the most engaging interval for you. For my @flppublic account it is between 8:00 a.m - 2:00 p.m Central Time. So, I post my photos in that time interval to get the most likes from my followers.

4. Use More Narrow Hashtags on Your Posts

The less posts under any hashtag the more chance for you to be discovered. That’s why I choose #mobilelightroompresets over #lightroompresets or I choose #bloggerlightroompreset over #blogger or I choose #influencerpresets over #influencer etc.

Try to use the most relevant and the most narrow hashtags to feature your photos in those hashtags more powerfully. Quality over quantity is rule of thumb here.

5. Host a Contest or Giveaway

These methods are actually depends on my experience. So, they are real-life lessons that I got. Below is my recent giveaway campaign that I established to promote my Lightroom Presets Bundle and it worked! Both my website traffic and income increased 100%. People love giveaways and contests…

6. Making Links from Outside

Link your Instagram account to your other social platforms (like Facebook,Reddit or Twitter) to share your account and the media you post with your fans in other areas. This helps to leverage the profile traffic and views you generate in your other platforms to point them towards your Instagram profile, generating you more likes (and followers too). Your blog is another great place to share your Instagram posts.

Sharing the post on other platforms like Facebook, Reddit or Twitter will drive huge traffic to your Instagram post, hence, you will get more likes. That’s why I have accounts on almost all social platforms…

7. Tag People, Places and Brands, When Relevant

Tagging works like hashtags, you reach people that do not follow you normally, however, they see your post somehow and like it. Maybe even further, you may gain new followers in this way.


After all these, one can easily say that the main thing is attracting attention is key here. Whether this is by photo quality or reaching strength to the right people. This website is here to help you in increasing the quality of your images. You can always use and share the website.
