How to Get More Instagram Followers in 2018 from Zero to 10K


Instagram is one of the most popular social media sites on the internet. There are millions of daily active users. It’s not only a social media site, but it is also a photo sharing site like pinterest.com.

According to my experiences, it’s easy to get followers on Instagram rather than getting followers on other social media sites. But some people try to get followers using paid sites or using bots. Getting fake followers has less value rather than getting unique followers.

If you are a blogger or website owner you can use this awesome social media site to promote your blog. Instagram is best for brand promoters who are seeking to promote their brand. If you are more concern on social media marketing I suggest you should try Instagram first.

1)      Make a Plan before getting started
Before implementing any project you should have a plan. Without any proper plan, you are wasting your time, resources, and investments.
Clearly identify your goal first. It can be for drive traffic, boost product sales or increase brand awareness. Define your targeted audience and make a plan for what kind of post should be published. If you planning to do paid promotions, set your budget before getting started.

2)      Sharing a Great Content
This is the most important thing that you should remember on your mind. Great content always allows publishers to get more likes, shares, and comments. Getting more engagements will help you to expose on a new audience. You need to produce some attractive posts to inform and entertain your followers.

3)      Promote Your Profile on Other Social Media sites
If you are well known in other social media sites, it’s better if you can promote your content on that social media sites. Sometimes you can be popular on Pinterest or Facebook. Ask followers to follow you on Instagram. If your followers related to any particular niche or brand, it’s awesome to use this method.

4)      Hashtags
This is another important part that you should know. The words come with # mark are called hashtags. These hashtags allow you to take you to a large audience. You also can follow specific hashtags. Once you enter a hashtag with your post, anyone can easily your post with searching that hashtag. Categorizing your post with these hashtags will definitely help you to get followers quickly. Don’t put more hashtags with a single post. 5-6 hashtags are enough.

5)      Follow Other Users
This is awesome when you are in the beginner stage. Follow about 500 users in your industry and definitely, they will follow you back again. Always follow influencers and top celebrities in your industry, where you can connect with them and helps to get more followers. You need to engage with people you were followed. Give likes and comments on their posts.

6)      Continuously Posting
You need to be active and post regularly to success on Instagram. Make a schedule and post according to it. I recommend a post at least 3-5 posts per week. If you can post daily it will help you to reach your goal quickly. You can use social media management tools for schedule postings.
