    People are selling Instagram followers on fiver but I am getting reports they fall after some time. How strange is that.

    I tried Facebook advertising but it was not 2 successful.

    You can pay for shout outs or paid ads to gain followers faster.

    Otherwise if you want to grow it free I suggest following around 100 people per day that are in your niche or demographic. Don't do much more than 100 per day you don't want Instagram banning your account for spam.

      When you are are doing the 100 per day are you following/unfollowing? Are you unfollowing people who dont follow you back? 100 per day can lead up to a lot if know one is following back.

    Hashtags look bad to some people, but it's a great way to garner traffic to your posts. Instagram allows no more than 30. When you find the right combination of hashtags you'd be surprised how much it can help your page!

    • Maybe there are some famous sites that promotes the Instagram account for money !! and that's legal anyway.
      I also stumbled from 5-6 years ago with Facebook paid people that could sell 100 likes for money but that is considered as spam.

      I would love to hear about legal Instagram advertising services.

      Thanks & regards,

  • If you want to do it organically just be consistent. 2-3 times a day, post at times where people are just getting out of work, but also keep in mind the different time zones. Sunday is by far the only day out of the week besides holidays when timing doesn't matter unless you want to post at 11pm and some places its already monday. THE MOST IMPORTANT piece of the puzzle, post great content, eye catchy... nothing blurry or that doesnt fit your audience. ENGAGE with people in your niche even if you dont follow them. Go out of your way to send a nice comment. These are just a few tips, i can go and on.

    Two things I would recommend are:
    * Using focused and appropriate hashtags and,
    * Creating engaging posts through storytelling or asking questions.

    Use the caption below your image to write and engage with your audience; talk about something personal and relevant, ask genuine questions or for feedback. Don't shallowly ask for follows or for obvious responses (like "who else has a cat?!"), ask something that requires more thought ("Have you ever had a moment where you thought you'd lost your cat?") or something with a story behind it.

    As for hashtags, you can post a comment immediately after posting and include 5 '.' one under the other, then list your relevant hashtags.
    e.g: .
    .
    .
    .

    It still seems the best way to get a random follow is to follow someone else. You can either follow many accounts like 160 per hour I think it is or last was. But that can be tedious and time consuming or you can use an automation tool like Instagress which I use everyday. Set it up to follow people who follow related accounts to get targeted followers and run Instagress and it will automatically follow the followers of others once you set it up to do that and this will get you followers I usually average 4k-5k followers per month when I actively use Instagress per Instagram account. Here is a video on how I use Instagress to get followers:

    You CAN have more IG followers through:
    1. Doing the follow/unfollow strategy (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't)
    2. Using the right hashtags
    3. Updating your feed with fresh and interesting posts
    4. Opting for the paid option to possibly boost followers

    Good luck!

      If you want to start a campaign to earn more followers, then you have to know what you're going to post. You can't just post random stuff and expect followers, you need to be giving them something in return with the promise of more if they follow you.

      Work out a schedule/calendar of posts and topics you will touch upon. It's easier to maintain activity now between posts by using their 'Stories' function (posting on-the-spot photos and videos to a news bar) and continuing your online presence while you work on new posts.

      Engaging with them earnestly, asking questions, and inviting other people on a similar 'journey' to join you. Using appropriate hashtags will help you accomplish this too.

      Don't buy phoney followers from Fiverr or some other flea market, the only way to get honest followers is to engage with them honestly and post regularly.

      Follow the hashtags that you use to find other people striving for the same thing, newcomers to Instagram appreciate new followers and are more likely to follow you back. Comment on other people's posts and share your experience.

      This thread was started way back in January so I hope our advice has been helping and motivating you.

    since Instagram is very secretive about their operations, there's no way to confirm what they're doing right now and how they're doing it, but they most definitely are currently cracking down on buying followers, likes, and I think even the usage of automation softwares, due to many people using them in such spammy ways.

    they have to clamp down on this to protect their ad product and their ad revenue, and even though there's no way to confirm what exactly it is that they're doing, I would stay far away from any tactics other than strictly organic on Instagram right now because they are definitely cleaning house right now and shutting down accounts left and right.

    There are several signs on Instagram that show that this is what they are currently doing. Hope this helps guys!

    Starting from scratch, you can get to 10K in around a month (amusing you get stuff done).

    Here’s a few tips.

    Post relevant posts with 30 hashtags (I prefer putting them in the comment section).

    Make sure the pictures you post are good.

    Look at accounts in your niche to see what pictures are getting great engagement and model them.

    Get others to engage on your posts when you first post them which allows you to get to top posts for hashtags.

    This can be done by searching for engagement groups to join.

    Aside from that...

    Shoutouts and story shoutouts help a lot too.

    After you get the ball rolling, it really starts to pick up.

    Here are some techniques that I use:
    • Find popular Instagram accounts related to your niche and ask them to post your image along with username.
    • Be active and engage with your followers by commenting and liking their photos.
    • Consider tagging brands and or relevant influencers, since most people will check out each other’s tagged photos.

    It will take some time unless you are an celebrity. People who have lots of followers usually post looking good food or expensive brand stuff. or If they are hot or handsome they post their picture.
