We spend so much of our time surfing the internet, looking for information that can educate us, intrigue us, and make us laugh or provide us with an escape from the realities of our lives. Sometimes we get so engrossed in this world of binary dots that we forget what’s happening in the real world.

Of course, the internet and everything in it has also become part of the real world if you think of it another way. That is why people who have a large number of followers and who get appreciation for their work are happier than people who don’t.

In this article, I am going to show you how to rack up massive number of followers on Instagram by following a few important steps..

There are two ways you can approach this. It’s either you follow the short cut method and arrive at the destination in a fractionof the time, or you walk the long road. It depends on how desperate you’re and how much time you’re willing to put in.

What I mean by shortcut is, you can easily buy Instagram likes, Instagram followers and also  views in order to become popular in a short time. You have the option of buying fake accounts made up of bots or real accounts with real users behind them.

If you don’t appreciate this notion however, you can embrace the grind and hard work and build your follower base the tough way.

You can read the story of how I did it on my previous article; ‘How I became Instagram Famous’ to get some insights.

. Having said that, let us now look at some of the important but simple steps that you can follow to increase the number of your followers on Instagram.

  • Contests: People love participating in contests. It is one of the best ways you can engage your followers and give them something to be excited about..  Contests by their nature are viral, so make sure you throw one once in a while to give you a boost in the number of your followers especially if you get them right.
  • Upload Videos: Videos are getting a lot of love these days, and uploading them frequently is sure to get you some attention. Study your followers, their likes and preferences and share something you know they’ll love. For example if you noticed that your followers are movie lovers, you can try sharing teasers and trailers of the most awaited movies and TV shows.
  • Use Your Peak Hours: It doesn’t matter what you’re sharing, if it is not reaching the maximum amount of people, it won’t create the kind of result you want. Make a point of understanding when your followers spend the most time online an share your posts during those hours. Mostly, people surf the internet after a tiring day hoping to find something interesting to catch on. Be their reason to surf endlessly and you will soon have a lot of followers.
  • Follow Back: Newton’s Third Law states that “To Every Action, There is An Equal and an Opposite Reaction”. You need to work with the same principal and follow back as many of the followers you have as possible. This will motivate other people to follow you too, because at the end of the day, everybody likes to be followed. When the number of your followers increases to a considerable amount, you might consider the option of skipping this step, but at the beginning, follow back as many people as possible.

Before we windup this post, I need to caution you though, as you become more popular, you need to be mindful of the type post you share because one wrong step can result in dire consequences.

Don’t share copyrighted photos or materials, because if you do your popularity will turn right against you.

Don’t share things that will destroy your integrity becausethere’s no other way to make your followers disappear in a puff of smoke.

Don’t play dirty politics unless if that’s the kind of thing your followers appreciate. Don’t insult other people or muddle your hands into affairs between two countries. Stay in your lane.

I hope with this post, you now understand the little things you can do differently to increase your follower base, and afterwards, the things you must avoid in order to keep them.
