If you’re looking for ways to grow your Instagram without following other accounts, these tips will do wonders.

I’ve been working with many businesses and individuals who keep trying to increase the number of their Instagram followers, however to no success. All of them have one thing in common — they want an instant result.

Unfortunately, getting people to follow your Instagram account will require some time and effort.

You’re lucky though because I’ll share the best strategies with you and you only need to follow these tips. That simple!

Post content regularly

Regular posts are key to your Instagram success. There are two reasons for that:
1. if visitors like what they see on your account, they want to consume your content regularly
2. simple mathematics

Let me explain both.

If you post sporadically, say you post for a couple of days, then disappear for a month, then come back for a week, it just signals to your visitors that you aren’t really serious about your Instagram journey. If I like what I see, I want regular posts to be entertained.

Imagine a TV series that one month releases 3 episodes, the next one none. Would you keep following up and continue watching it? Many people wouldn’t.

The mathematics behind your regular posts is simple. Let’s say this month you posted 10 times, which resulted in 10k views (on average 1k views per post). It means that ten thousand people saw your posts. It also means that there were ten thousand potential followers who discovered your post.

Now let’s say that you posted only once — you only reached one thousand viewers. It means there were only 1k potential followers that month. Does it make sense? The more regularly you post, the more viewers you get, which also means more chances of being followed.

Be engaging
