9 Easy Steps to Increase Your Instagram Followers

instagram on mobile posts


Step 1: Find out what your people want and give it away.

This is the biggest way that we have grown our account. Every month we try to host a giveaway with a brand. But even when we were at 1,000 followers, brands would give us free stuff to give away so it is always worth it to ask! Either spend the money to purchase something to give away or reach out to brands to see if you can give something of theirs away.


Step 2: Don’t automate. Be real.

When I stopped the automated liking, I thought my follower count would rapidly decrease. Just the opposite! It kept on growing. Spend the time to comment and like your ideal client’s photos. BE real! Think of it as networking at an event. Don’t rely on automation.


Step 3: Get in an Instagram pod ASAP!

If you are ready to commit to Instagram, then the Instagram pod will help you stay accountable to posting daily as well as increase your engagement.


Step 4: Don’t be afraid to test, change and grow!

Once you register as a business account, you can check your analytics. See what works and what doesn’t work. Stop doing what doesn’t work and do more of what does get the engagement that you need.

The more engagement, the more people will see your photos. Post photos that get engagement. If you’ve been doing things one way for awhile, don’t be afraid to change things up and try new photos!

Hint: Quote photos always do the best for us!


Step 5: Stick to a schedule.

Grab your calendar and every single day add a spot on your calendar for Instagram posting. It should take no longer than 10 minutes and once you already have some content on Instagram, it takes just 1 minute to recycle something that did well in the past. Instagram does not have to take a lot of time but you do have to stay consistent. Getting a calendar reminder is always what helps me stick to a consistent schedule.


Step 6: Utilize Instagram stories.

Document the behind-the-scenes of your company and allow people to get to know you. Don’t’ worry about it being perfect because it disappears in a day! Every day, try to capture 1-2 stories or videos of what you are doing in your business or personal life. Be real and have fun!

Instagram loves when you create stories and if people are watching your stories, Instagram will show your Instagram posts to those people too! Plus, you can now link from stories in business accounts which is a huge WIN!


Step 7: Treat Instagram like a blog.

Change your mindset. Instagram is the new website. Treat it like a daily blog.

If you have a website and are blogging, those blog posts need to get on Instagram. Instagram is even easier than blogging so it’s perfect if you are just getting started. Take any written content you have, add a photo, and post it on Instagram.

Don’t shoot for a ton of traffic on Instagram, it won’t happen. Instead, focus on building your brand and being a spot where people love to come back to your profile and obsess over your photos and read all your text. If you have blogs already, take the same content and post it daily on Instagram.


Step 8: Use linktr.ee

This is a free website that will allow you to create a special page to link your Instagram URL to. This way you don’t have to constantly change your link in bio. You can have a variety of options for your viewers to click on to check you out! I recommend having a lead magnet and a blog post at least.


Step 9: Get professional photos done.

They are worth the cost. Many times it’s not even that expensive!! You’ll want some photos of you that you can recycle and reuse over and over again. I did this 2 years ago and I am still using a lot of those same photos because I loved them!

Your brand will take off and Instagram will take off when you have photos you love to share. So get photos you love to share whether that is getting them taken or buying photos that you are happy with. It’s worth it and often not that expensive.
