1. Choose A Niche
- Pick what you are going to be posting about
- Search for hashtags on Instagram and follow the hashtags to see what are the popular posts
- Try to replicate and improve on the posts you see
- If you have a personal profile that you want to keep then, you should create a business profile
2. Post Content Consistently
- Choose a schedule and stick to it. Don’t miss a day!
- Don’t post too often. Try not to post more than twice a day
- you don’t wan’t become annoying or a nuisance on someones’s screen. No one wants to see the same person
- I would suggest if you are just starting out, try to get one solid post per week.
3. Focus On Quality Over Quantity.
- When you’re first starting out, the people that will likely follow you will be people you already know
- You are much more likely to get engagement from
4. Use Relevant Hashtags
- Hashtags a re great way to grow your profile especially with the recent updates to instrgram allowing you to follow hastags
- After you’ve researched the hashtags on step 1. Make sure to always include a mix of them in your posts
- Don’t use the same hashtags every-time. Instagram has devalued this recently and could potentially lead to “shadowban” where your posts won’t show to all your followers
5. Be An Active Member In Your Niche Community
- I suggest daily you should look at 5-10 hashtags and any other profiles you follow that suit your niche and comment/like on their popular posts.
- This will give you more opportunities to be shown to your target audience
- Also, eventually it can lead to collaborations
6. Collaborate With Other Influencers
- Collaborations are by far the best and fastest way to grow an organic following.
- Like I mentioned earlier, you have to get involved in the nichec ommunity
- Attending expositions or events are a great way to meet other influncers from the same niche
- So put on your networking hat and start getting to know people
- Once you collaborate always make sure to tag them on your posts and vice versa when they post
- Shoutouts on posts and stories will get you much more exposure and will increase your following
