How to Get More Instagram Video Views

On February 12th, 2016 Instagram announced they are going to roll out video views as a feature. As with most new features, it is likely the case that celebrities, brands and accounts with millions of followers will get this functionality first. From what we understand, it is going to be similar to YouTube in that anyone can see how many times an Instagram video is watched rather than just the number of likes. This could be very important for those wanting to advertise with specific Instagram accounts.

If you are like most Instagram users, you have watched the same video multiple times. The owner of this content has no idea how many times you watched the video. It is very similar to Snapchat Stories. Followers could be watching a Snapchat Story or Instagram video dozens of time yet the owner of that particular account has no idea. That is going to change when it comes to Instagram video views. The whole world will now know how many views there are for a public Instagram video.

If you want to get more video views there are a number of ways you can do this. The best way to get views for a long period of time is to embed your Instagram video on a highly trafficked website. If you rank on the front page of Google search for “Instagram Video Views” you could get thousands of views for several years to come. That said, finding a website that ranks on the front page of Google search or has a large audience can be difficult.

As with all viral posts, you will want to share your Instagram videos on Facebook, Twitter and even Snapchat. Some may wonder how they can promote their Instagram videos on Snapchat. Easy, make short URL with goo.gl or bit.ly and video 10 seconds of your Instagram video to add to your Snapchat story. Add the caption with the shortener URL and tell people to go watch your video on Instagram. You will be getting both Snapchat views and Instagram video views.

What marketing methods and strategies have you used to get more views on your Instagram, Snapchat or YouTube videos?

You can also post your Instagram name or account below with what you do in your video format. The more detailed your comment the more views and followers you will likely get.

        Follow me @porcelynndoll07! It’s so hard for me to get views on some of my videos and it’s kind of embarrassing when you posted a video like a day ago and only have 10 or is views and your friend posts a video and in the first hour of it being posted they already have more views than you!

    Hey! So I use Instagram a lot. I use it really just show a small insight of my lifestyle. My work (modelling), my hobbies, my friends, food (everyone secretly likes food photos!) etc. It’s mainly just a bit of fun for me but being able to share it is great too! I’m always SO inspired by other peoples instagrams too. My follower count is very very gradually increasing but I’m always active on instagram – it’s a two way thing, i definitely appreciate my followers especially if we have similar accounts etc.

    Anyway it’d be great if you could view my videos and follow me!!

    Thanks!
