Pay attention on customer’s perspective:
In my opinion, businesses can increase their organic reach on Instagram by emphasizing on the insights and interests of their customers. You should try to understand what your followers expect from you and give priority to their feelings. Try to figure out what your followers like by reviewing your post. If a post has more likes, then it indicates your follower’s interests.
Another important factor that can increase your organic reach is that you should make your followers feel like they are your family. For example, give your existing and potential followers a treat by posting some personal stuff. This will give them warm vibes and they will definitely feel your compassion and considerations towards them. Encourage your followers and customers to give their opinions and thoughts about some specific service or product of yours and then take their views into consideration.
Actively respond and socialize:
