So, how to get them to follow you back on Insta?
Make Your Comments Count
Listen up, folks! Celebrities are people too, believe it or not. Sure, some of them might be using Instagram to promote their latest album, movie, or product, but many also share glimpses of their personal lives. And that’s where you come in.
Instead of leaving a generic comment like “so cute!” or “adorable like their mommy/daddy,” why not try to stand out from the crowd? Be creative, be thought-provoking, be intriguing! Make a comment about their career, a project they’re working on, or a charity they support, but make sure it relates to their post. Show them that you’ve put some effort into your comment and that you have something interesting to say.
If you can make them pause and think, they might just respond to your comment. And when they do, be ready with an intelligent comeback. Keep the conversation going, and who knows? They might even hit that follow button! 😍😍😍
So go ahead, give it a try. You never know, you might just become the next Insta-famous commenter! And if you need some inspiration, check out these celebrity Instagram accounts for some ideas.

Pick your moments
It is no secret that good timing matters, so consider when to post wisely. If you regularly read your celebs posts, you’ll know when they are most active on social media – are they an early riser, posting sunrises and more, or will they tell you all about their day as they enjoy a nightcap? If they’ve posted about feeling low – celebs are human too, then a positive comment might pick them up, or if they are ill, offer comfort and support with an interesting, stand-out-from-the-crowd comment.
Make your Instagram page interesting
On social media, there are many things that we can’t control, however, we can ensure our page, what we post, and who we follow are interesting, special, and eye-catching. If your celeb supports a particular charity, share details of that charity, adding your own comments. Make sure everything you write is thought-provoking and encourages debate. If you know their hometown, how about mentioning an upcoming holiday there and ask for tips or locations to visit? Political ideology, beliefs, and unusual hobbies all get you noticed, and that can lead to being followed on Insta.
Kim Kardashian has been quoted in interviews as saying she wanted to spread the love and send money to people who are: “struggling, worried about how they’re going to pay rent, put food on the table, or a gift under the tree for their kids.” Give her a reason why it should be you, and it might be you!

Make Instagram features work for you
Within your reach, there are two Instagram features that could work in your favor. First is the ##### – Hashtag
Social media sites like Insta have unique algorithms that automatically fill a person’s Instagram feed. Hashtags are random titles are assigned to pictures, videos, and posts eg #holidayinthesun or #givemeyourcashkimkardashian. If your Instagram page is public, when you place hashtags in the comments section of your posts, it becomes part of a group of other Instagram posts, in this case sharing the #holidayinthesun hashtag .
With your favorite celebrity having that same Instagram algorithm feature, they could stumble upon that hashtag group and eventually be led to your Instagram post. You can make as many hashtags as you like, giving you more chances for a celebrity to follow you.
If you want to further narrow down your chances of getting noticed and followed, there is another Insta feature you could use – reposting or sharing. Just like any other social media platform, public posts frequently get shared, and whoever posted them, receives notification that you shared. If done regularly they will begin to recognize your name or avatar.
Although it may seem that your favored celeb is unreachable, trust us, it can, and is often, done. Sometimes this connection even leads to friendship! Never give up your dream!
