      Well, I believe I have to test trials and errors as best as I can within a week. The best trial and error methods to get the followers the fastest.

      After a week, with those working methods, I can continue getting followers without feeling too stressful or being rushed.

        Ok, don't worry about the 1,000 in a week, that alone will stress you out.

        Look at the big picture, you'll still be doing this in two months right? You've got time.

        Are there plenty of game channels on Instagram? I don't know, it's not my niche.

        Anyways, use popular niche hashtags and try to connect with people that are already established and have traffic.

    Follow people that are in your niche. Like their content. Converse with them. Post compelling content. Research hashtags that are popular and relevant to your niche.

    I wrote about the Instagram Follow and Unfollow Method and now people send me hate mail.

    Growing your follower base on Instagram lie every other social media channel requires time and effort. the issue that many people have is that they want instant followership and that's not going to help them.

    Having said that, you need to focus on engagement by commenting on other people's posts, using appropriate tags in your posts. Tag O' Matic is one app that can help you with relevant tags and it is on play store. Once you have published a reasonable number of posts, you can then reach out to a few influencers and have them promote your page/offer.

    You have received a lot of answers already, but you can add this to the mix; if you follow an account with lots of followers in your niche, you should also follow those following that account. Some will follow back and some won't. What you do with those who don't follow back will be up to you.

    Having 1000 followers within one week on Instagram is a very daunting task. You can either buy followers or start Ad campaigns to gain attention in order to get more follow and likes.

    Hey buddy, i know there is a way to buy Instagram traffic, so you should try to buy it, and promote using it, i guess it will better than trying to get followers.

      Yes mate! It is a very good idea. I know a lot of small businesses or even medium to big businesses, they buy traffic like influencer outreach. You see I'm starting out fresh, let me put some time and effort just to understand the whole things first

    That's a very ambitious target ,especially if you're looking for engaged real followers. But the secret is to post as much as possible - 3-5 times a day, use hashtags extensively, about 30 per post (the max) then comment and tag other people in your niche. You have to be very dedicated to build this kind of audience.

    Promoting anything on the internet is the best place is youtube, here amount of traffic is huge but content should be very interesting otherwise it will be worthless. Same situation is for instagram too. So more social share like:


    Reddit
    Facebook
    Twitter
    tumblr etc.


    these platform will be good for promoting any product.

      I believe each platform has its unique users. I guess I will try to do reddit, facebook, youtube, and twitter then.

        It's possible though. You have paid more that 5 accounts for this promotion. So they will help you to get follower for money.. It's quite impossible for free campaign. There's a lot of account they are promoting for money.. Check out this idea/ Hope it helps

    If you want to have 1000 real followers without promotion, then it's impossible. You have to be ready to pay for that. Or spend on this many hours and nervous on this until there is will be a result.

    Focus not on the number of followers MM but on serving human beings 1 at a time. Like updates. Comment genuinely on updates. These 1 to 1 engagements form the foundation for a successful IG marketing campaign.

    1000 is a number. 1 week is a number. No number ever bought my eBook or hired me

    I'll suggest you to invest in Instagram ads. Because more than 75% of Instagram users take any action, such as downloading or checking apps pages, after looking at an Instagram advertising post.



    Instagram's ads are the most advanced social media advertising platforms where you can just access targeting options. Now try Instagram Ads Platform by yourself in promoting your apps by sharing images, posts, dropping a link, and call to action in your posts. If you want any help in building a perfect strategy for your social media marketing campaign you can find some threads shared in this forum.

    Whatever you do, don't buy followers. Having a following of organic followers in your niche is the only long term strategy for monetizing your social media accounts!

    Hey,
    It seems there are lots of effective information's shared in this thread. From all of that my suggestions is to use Avg. 30 popular niche hash tags - (all-hashtag site will give you some best ideas), Follow some popular profiles and their friend zone's too but it can be better if they do have interest on games, Add comments and shares on some popular gaming profiles and do it on a regular basis. You will definitely see a gradual improvement.

    I increased my following from 100 to 600 in 3 days during xmas (i had a lot of time on my hands back then.. nowit's stayed the same since because i haven't been active)

    I just kinda... tried stuff out not sure if it's the correct way but I did it by:

    STEPS

    1. finding out what my niche was - my pet rabbit. >> http://instagram.com/trainmybunny
    2. following other people who had pet rabbits by clicking through the hashtags i was using #bunny #bunnygram #instabun #rabbit etc and seeing who else used the same tags
    3. going through their friendslist and mass - follow ALL the rabbits LOL - there is a limit/day cap though.
    4. liking things on my newsfeed and commenting on them using their actual names... or commenting on what they are doing etc so its personal.
    5. turns out other people see your comment and your rabbit photo and are doing the same thing so they follow you! or if you follow them they naturally follow you back. not sure why. it depends on the community. bunny grammers are well into unspoken F 4 F (follow 4 follow) lol
    6. now i dont have to hashtag and other bunny grammers comment on my photos saying he's cute. BECAUSE HES ADORABLEEEEEE xD Lol
    7. post every couple of days to keep the followers building. i got lazy and post 1 a month lol
    8. find out the most popular hashtags in your 'niche' and put them all in a notepad. but DON'T post it as your photo comment. post it as the 1st comment.. so you can delete it after 2 weeks. that way people think you're actually popular without hashtags. - plus people wont really find you after 2 weeks as yoru content is 'old'
    9. not sure if this will work for others but it worked for me - now if only i could be bothered to continue

    TOOLS

    There are also free tools you can use to auto - schedule your Instagram posts so you dont have to manual post them. one good one is: https://later.com/ - Its completely free... you can post maybe 30 images automatically and schedule it... you have to pay for video posts (I think?) or it doesnt have it.

    Theres another tool to prview how your instagram looks with your new image before you post it - so it ... matches like a moodboard. - have a google. Never used this but there's loads


    TIPS


    - There are statistics online if you look hard enough that tell you what time what type of post and person goes on instagram... so someone with a job will log in just after work and scroll through on the commute home, you use this time to post with hashtags they might look at at 6pm to try and either sell them... stuff like holidays or maybe even food related ones because they're hungry

    - Check the latest news for most popular hashtags, viral stuff, celebrity culture etc and then post something relevant / relating to that hashtag or topic

    - If it's a specific holiday maybe like Valentine's day.. You post something related with related hashtag like #valentinesday and people will find you on that day. It's good to keep a schedule of dates, specific holidays or festive dates that are yearly then you can plan ahead.

    - There several popular re-curring hashtags that EVERYONE uses which are 'tradition' such as
    - #throwbackthursday - old nostalgic memories or photos
    - #motivationalmondays - motivational quotes, images etc etc
    There are loads of others but I don't really know them

    Or you could do what my friend did which was build an illegal script in Python that searched for specific tags and blacklisted others and auto-liked and comments on those photos. Hes got like 60K now because of it but he wont let me use it unless i pay him a subscription fee :/ tight *******!
