Step 1: Hashtags
The best way to grow on Instagram faster is to use hashtags the right way. Don’t expect to get results on unique hashtags like #DecidedToWalkMyDogOnThisSunnyTuesdayAfternoon. You want to find a relevant or trending hashtag, so if its Superbowl Sunday, use the hashtag #SuperbowlSunday.
When there is something big going on like the March For Our Lives protest, use the hashtag #MarchForOurLives. If you want more followers, don’t say things on the internet that will offend a lot of people- even if you are right.
Another really important thing to do is use multiple hashtags and variations of those hashtags. In the example of Superbowl Sunday, you could have used the hashtags #SuperbowlSunday #Superbowl #SBSunday #Eagles #Pats #Patriots #FlyEaglesFly. This will be seen by the largest amount of people possible.
In the case of the March For Our Lives protest, you can use the hashtags #MarchForOurLives #GunViolence #Guns #Protest #2ndAmendment #RightToBearArms. This will be seen by people on both sides of the gun debate.
One more thing you can do is find the list of trending hashtags on Twitter and use them all in your Instagram caption. The hashtags will be essentially the same in popularity. For example on April 1st at 8:34 PM, the trending hashtags on Twitter are #JesusChristSuperstarLive, #RHOA, #AprilFools, #EasterParade, and #AmericanIdol. If you use them all in your caption, you will maximize your benefits.
Step 2: Mass Following
The next great way to get more Instagram followers is through the method of mass following. What do I mean by that? When you follow someone, chances are they will follow back. ESPECIALLY if your Instagram bio is relatable to them.
I implemented this in real life to grow my account by a thousand followers in a week with sports. I followed EVERY sports team in EVERY sport and added “sportswriter” in my bio (I was a sportswriter). Immediately, I had people all over the world following me.
You can do this with any group- even Beliebers (Justin Bieber fans). Follow Justin Bieber and several of his fan groups, clubs, and pages. Then add “Belieber” to your Instagram Bio. Once you do that, follow a bunch of other Justin Bieber fans (you can search for them or just see who is following Justing Bieber). You will get plenty more followers in no time!
Step 3: Celebrity Shoutouts
Not only can you get more followers, but you also can get famous on Instagram using this method. There are a couple of ways to go about the “Celebrity Shoutouts” route.
The first and easiest way is to Direct Message celebrities and ask them for a shoutout. You should start with smaller celebrities with a few dozen thousand followers, then work your way up to a few hundred thousand followers before you try this with anyone with a million followers or more.
Another way you can do this is if you tag a celebrity in your post and mention them in the caption. It can either be something provocative that will cause them to lash out at you (all publicity is good publicity) or something supportive that will cause them to shout you out.
The other way to do this is to be at the same place at the same time as a celebrity- like at a club or an event. Take a picture with them and tag them in it. They may shout you out as a result.
