I’m sure that you’ve clicked on this article to learn some insight on how to magically grow your following. Personally I wished it happened over night but just like you I’ve had my own hurdles and head bashing moments as to why? And how?
A lot of this we can thank good old Instagram and their infamous algorithm. The ” i won’t follow you if I’m not interested in your topic” kind. It’s amazing how much more work is required to gain organic followers but in the long run it’s for the best. As these are true individuals interested in what you have to say or offer.
Well I won’t delay you much for today’s post is simply the basics. I will have a part two that will help you pre determine a schedule and a solid plan for your goals.
1. Know Your Niche
That’s right! What are you going to sell to your audience ( and I don’t mean physically) I mean are you a Fashion Blogger, Foodie, Parent , Beauty or YouTuber. Find what you connect with the most.
2. Follow Similar Accounts
It’s good to see what others are doing, this will give you a chance to visualize your own goals too. Mind you I’m not saying copy them but simply learn and achieve based on what others do. They are a successful for a reason!
3. Theme or No Theme
While aesthetically pleasing a theme isn’t really must I know some people have spent valuable dollars on fancy themes. Realistically you can do without so long as your pictures are of good quality and lighting. Your captions are interesting and tags are on point.
There are tons of groups out there you can join for follow loops or interactions likes and comments on your posts. But be ready to return the favor, you must follow their rules and make sure to also share the love.
Here are some of the ones I’ve joined before:
Here you can see you post a comment of the image you seek interaction with and you have to do the same for them.
You can also search follow loops but be mindful of them they can be sort of spammy.
This is very important interact with all if not as many of your followers don’t ignore them as they will more often than not share that love back.
This is the very basic steps you can take now to grow your account. I will do a more in depth post on Giveaways, follow for follow, Mass following & more on future posts. If you enjoyed this make sure to sign up to be notified when I post next.
