In such a saturated influencer space, is it still possible to organically grow your Instagram?
AB SO LUTE LY! Since there are a plethora of people who never bothered to learn Instagram’s algorithm, some have turned to bots and third party solutions to grow their account. Unfortunately, Instagram has gotten smarter over the past 2 years in detecting these (bc they are, after all, illegal).
There are so many ways to grow your Instagram following the right way, and it starts with building the right foundation (with purpose and strategy) and understanding how the algorithm behaves. Here are some (of the many) strategies that I have tried and tested myself over the last 7 years being in the influencer world. ENJOY!
The average attention span of a human being is 8 seconds. A potential follower has about 8 seconds to decide whether or not you’re a person they want to follow, so you have to make sure that they know from the first glance what to expect from you and your content. Think of your Instagram as a portfolio or a resume. Your profile should paint a picture of who you are.
Similar to what I said last week about using ALL 51 ways Instagram offers to boost your individual post up the algorithm, the same goes for your profile.
Have you ever done Instagram flirting with a person you liked? MASS LIKES? MASS COMMENTS? REACTING TO THEIR
STORIES? You can apply these same strategies to your followers and your potential followers!
