Well, in this blog I am going to give you great tips on how to grow your Instagram effectively and for good. No more wasted hours, no more trial and error. Below I have created a super simple guide for you to follow if you want to explode your instagram. The three ingredients for growth are a great path for you to follow, and for best results all three should be combined and used together.
So, our simple 3 point recipe is:
Add valuable content to you page.
In order to grow your account you need to have high quality, valuable content ready for your growing audience to benefit from. Whether that is a travel blog, beauty products, personal training or marketing business. You content is probably the most important ingredient, it’s the heart of your page.
In order to create real, personal connection with your audience you need to interact with other accounts. When you are just starting out it’s best to engage with bigger accounts that match your Niche. Other account who are interested in similar area will start noticing your comments and that way it can lead to organic following. Once you establish a higher following engage with smaller accounts to create a personal bond.
3. Followers and likes
Engaging with other people’s content is a great tool to get noticed. However, if someone sees you already have a great following and activity on your page they will be more likely to actually get involved in your page themselves. So a great way to boost your popularity is to start with buying followers and likes to attract more traffic to your page. Your page can go from 10 to 10000 overnight and will attract great clients, connections and potential business partners to your page.
If you apply the three principles above you will start noticing more traffic. Just remember that consistency in posting quality content is also one of the most valuable things. You can buy 50k followers, which will look great but without proper structure to your posts it may not do the trick. Think and work smart and you will save time so that you can focus on growing your business and/or yourself.
