    What are you doing on instagram?

    Posting content that people are interested in normally works. Can you share more details on what your plan was?

    Judging from those on Instagram who have the most followers you have to either be (a) good looking, (b) interesting in some way/living a unique lifestyle or both.

    It doesn't hurt if you're a celebrity already to start either.

      I agree with Richard, you need to create a group wherein members can also ask questions and get answers from their peers. Give them easy tools to participate in discussions across the organization. Also, don't forget to use popular hashtags.

    It really depends on the account, content you are posting and the niche you are in.
    Think yourself would you follow your account if you didnt knew about it just by looking at content and the instagram profile.

    In my opinion, this totally dependent on a few reasons:
    1. the reason you use Ins. Why you use this social platform? Get followers only? If so what're you doing?What's your goal? What's your business? WHat's your target marketing?
    ONLY your business /brand plan clearly, then you can go step by step.
    For example: This ins account's goal is to get followers yet network.
    The account owner is a designer, and her has a specific passion field in the design area. You can find she has a huge passion for design book cover, editorial print layout, music album, and poster. So she mainly post all content based on her focus.

    2. once you're clear enough about your business plan, then the next step is : develop and create high quality (better original) posts. The content part.

    This is the key way to express your brand image and value. So be careful. The will has a direct effect so that how your audiences think about your brand.

    3. keep posting, in a regularly way. Like 2-3 posts per day. You can post only 1 post per day, but MUSt keeping post. Especially at start, better to keep post EVERYDAY.

    HOwever all based on your brand positioning and strategy at start.

    Hope this helpful.

    What is your Instagram account for? Business or Personal use?

    Scenario: A T-Shirt Company.

    I would post quality pics of my t-shirts. Post 1-2 times daily. Utilize the IG Stories by letting people in on what it's like in a normal day of my company.

    With ever post, I would use relevant hashtags that people are using to search for clothing. I would also do a bit of hashtag research just to stay away from the one's that are mostly used.

    I would spend about 6 hours a day DM'ing every single clothing company on IG within my area, asking them if I can put a few of my shirts in there store in exchange for a shoutout on my page to promote there business.

    I would DM huge or medium sized accounts and ask them if I can be a guest on there podcast or blog - in return, I'll publish a backlink on my website to help them improve there SEO rankings.

    I'd do a bunch else but hey, I hope this helps.

    Cheers :-)

    P.S. Don't for get to use 10-15 hashtags and post them in the comments section, not in the caption area

    Posting frequently, and never forget to use hashtags relevant to your posts.

    Aside from posting hashtags as a caption, it also works when you post several relevant hashtags as the first comment to your image post; some people wouldn't want to see too many hashtags in the caption area.

    Then try browsing posts from the relevant hashtag results to your niche, you can start commenting, following and liking posts.

    If you are willing to burn some money from time to time, you can try the Instagram "Boost Post" feature. Every post exposure could return some good followers.

    You need to reach out to your followers. Engage with them, create interaction, and participate. Tag them in your posts, reply to their comments, and mention them via shout outs. Treat your followers the way you would want them to treat you. Message them directly and make them feel valued. You can also post their photos and post their appreciative feedback, as well as attend to their comments that need rectifying. It all boils down to great customer service.

    It depends on what are you normally posting and what you are trying to promote. My instagram followers are increasing in a decently steady way. I will share one of my experiences here, Number of followers increase rapidly when you post some interesting posts related to your pets like puppy, kittens etc. Post a picture with an interesting story about the post.

    First of all, I want to tell you that never buy fake followers. I want to give you some cool tricks and tips to increase followers on Instagram.

    1. Use hashtags that are known to help increase followers: #FF (Follow Friday), #instafollow, #l4l (Like like), #tagforlikes and #followback.

    2. Like hundreds of random pictures from people in your target audience. Neil Patel has used this strategy and found that for every 100 likes he did of random pictures, he received 6.1 more followers.

    3. Hold a contest on Instagram. One of the easiest ways to do this is to post an image promoting the contest and then ask people to like it in order to enter.

    4. Promote your Instagram account on your other social media accounts and profiles. Tell people what they can expect once they're following you (e.g., behind-the-scenes photos, sneak peeks, coupons, etc.)

    5. Like and comment on other users' photos. This is the most natural way to gain new followers.

    6. Use popular hashtags so your images get found in the search. Some of the most popular ones are #love, #instagood, #tbt and #photooftheday.

    7. Post photos at 2 am or 5 pm. Research shows that these are the most effective times to post.

    8. Search for and follow people who are using popular hashtags like #followme and #likeforlike. Many will follow you back!

    9. Remember that quality beats quantity. Edit your account to leave only the best images. No one wants to follow someone with thousands of pointless images of food or other random shots.

    10. Use the Mayfair filter. According to Track Maven's Fortune 500 Instagram Report, it's the single most effective filter for marketers.

    Hope I could provide the answer you were looking for.
    Thank you!

  • Here are some tips that may help you!

    1. Post Regularly. Build a schedule that'll be preferable to you and post according to it
    2. Pick an appropriate time to post. There are many articles that explain what time better to post on Facebook/Twitter/Dribbble. Mostly just experiment it out! Also get on bigger platforms, make a page on Facebook/Twitter and keep updated.
    3, Use limited specific tags. With tags you can get discovered, you get the audience that's interested in exactly what you're posting.
    4. Interact - You need to find other blogs in your industry/ field of interest and talk to them, follow them, appreciate their work and leave your opinion on it! Just interact!
    5 Have Patience - No one hits a lot of followers in a day, be patient.

    Hope that Helped!

    Scheduling is definitely one of the most important action items you can do for a social media account. Especially if you are working a job still and just can't dedicate some time to sit down and find images in between.

    I recommend to start out by blasting content. I found the best results came from posting at 7am, 1pm, and 7pm PST.

    Would highly recommend investing in some sort of auto-poster where you can schedule posts. Then you can blast out a months worth of posts in one sitting. Good luck!

      To add on to this. Cheap auto-posters use cracked API and will most definitely get your account flagged for automation. This means you'll pretty much be unable to get on the explore page while using that specific auto-poster.

      auto-posters are a money spent vs time saved kinda deal, the more you spend the more time and headaches you will avoid.
