Hi, You should optimize your accountBefore you set out figuring out how to gain followers on Instagram, one of the most important steps is to have your account fully optimized. Think of yourΒ brand’s Instagram bioΒ as the homepage to your account.

I mean you must build your profile according to your brand on your bio, for example, image captions, a proper username or profile image, where people will know the account belongs to your brand

@thisisvirginiakerr has fantastic content on this on both her Instagram and YouTube accounts. I think she also does TikTok but I’m never on that platform so I don’t know what she does there

But for real - Virginia literally breaks it down for you and gives you loads of content ideas and formatting to make money, not be an influencer (gets high views, no revenue)

Depending on your business but I have found it very helpful to do give aways or incentives to get people to follow you. I like doing the tag 5 people and share it on your story to get entered into a raffle for a give away.

Tags, suggested accounts, search by keywords.Β 

Also see who likes your ICP's pictures too. The name of the game of quality connections, not # of followers. Anyone can buy bots nowadaysΒ

Make sure you are following how platforms are adapting their algos. Like daily. For example, Instagram just released info that can be interpreted as β€œimages no longer matter, just post reels” so it is as much (if not more) about the TYPE and FORMAT of content you post as it is about the content itself. There are a ton of great online resources to stay on top of that with a quick Google search if you’re looking for that info.
