Top 8 Instagram account growth tactics which actually works

  1. Target your audiance

  2. Post best photos and videos

  3. Using proper hastags

  4. Paid promotion

  5. Story

  6. Make your account public

  7. Follow for follow

  8. Use your analytics

1. Target your audience

You need to understand your audience. Over 90% of the 150 million people on Instagram are under the age of 35, which makes it an attractive platform for many apparel, entertainment, and media brands focused on the 18- to 34-year-old age bracket. Now that Instagram has begun testing ads, it's a good time to dig deeper into its audience.

Firstly choose a particular niche and keep creating content around that particular niche and provide some value to the audience through your content.


2. Post best photos and videos

Post your best photos and videos with relevant captions and some meaningful content related to that post. Post your photo in which you look confident and comfortable. I show many people who post photos in uncomfortable positions that can lose your followers. You need the best camera and best location for photography. After that edit your photo. If you look uncomfortable in photos so don't post those photos.

Post those photos in which you look confident and comfortable. Post your photo and video at a specific time. Always post your post at between 8am to 11am. Because most of us use instagram that time. If you post your post at night your post will be older for them and your followers can't see your post. If posts are fresh your posts become top of your users.

3. Using hashtags(#)

Hashtags are basically the keywords which define what your post is about. Hashtags increase your reach to the people who don’t follow you. Using proper hashtags will help you to reach the broader audience all over the world organically. Hashtags help to grow your Instagram reach organically. Get more likes and comments by using relevant hashtags.

Also create a personal brand hashtag related to your account name or brand name whatever you want. Use that hashtag in each and every post you shared on your instagram profile.

>First learn what is hashtag

Hashtag is a label that is used in every social media. Hashtag use in any specific topic. So people can search for that topic.

>How to create hashtag

It's very easy to create hashtags in this generation every body uses hashtags. 

>How hashtag helps you

When you post any photo and you write a hashtag in post and when people search that hashtag so your post comes. There are many websites from where you can find hashtags related to your post just copy paste and use them for your posts.

4. Paid promotion

Best way to get followers is to promote your Instagram account. If you promote your in instagram your account picture shows in any random instagrammer. And you also create a panel that shows in everybody's story.

But paid promotion on Instagram costs you some amount of money and you need to have decent knowledge about facebook and instagram ads otherwise you will not reach the right audience and your ads will not be much effective.

So before running instagram ads learn how to run instagram ads effectively and then implement the strategy and target the right audience through ads. Otherwise you will waste your money in running instagram ads if your ads are not targeting the right audience.

5. Story

Story also plays an important role in reaching new people organically on Instagram. Always post something related to your niche in your story. Story plays an important role in engagement.

Post polls and choices to get more engagement on your story. When you give peoples a task generally they takes interest in it and boom. Its the secret for story engagement. Post something related to choose from 2 things, polls or ask anything type stories on a regular basis.

You need to make a perfect story to attract more people. If your story is good, then everybody will be attracted to your account. If people show your story it can attract many people. So also focus on your story.

6. Make your account public

Public accounts get more followers than private. If your photo isn't shown to the public, how can you attract people to your account. When people can't show your photo it is very hard to attract people. So make your account public.

Note: In play store or app store many apps claim that they give you thousands of followers in one click. They all are fake and spam. So be aware of them.

You also can purchase fake followers for like, comment and share . But I think this wrong way to get followers. I prefer you to do hard work in your account and get real followers instead of fake followers.

I hope you understand all and get more followers. Always do hard work for yourself so you get more followers. I hope you get many followers by my information.

7. Follow for follow

This is one of the best techniques to increase instagram followers psychologically. So how to do this? Many of the peoples uses this technique in starting even I also follow this technique to grow my followers. Roughly I increased my followers from 70 to almost 800 within 20 days.

Only you have to find the low followers instagram accounts and like, comment on their posts rapidly upto 10 or 12. After that they will see that someone is interested in their content they will do the same and sometimes they follows you or DM you for follow for follow. It is a great technique to grow followers on Instagram in a short period of time.

Find the instagram accounts related to your niche or some common peoples having less followers and visit their accounts and get engaged with their posts. Do like, share or comment on their posts. After some time you will see that they will do the same back. Then you can message them that they can follow each other to grow together.

You will see a boost in your followers if you apply this technique. But make sure to do it in a natural way and do it with a limit daily, otherwise instagram will block your action for 3 or more days.

8. Use your analytics

Most of the users ignores this instagram feature but I want to say that it is the most useful and beneficiary tool for a instagrammer. It shows that how your followers are engaging with your content. And the most important thing the analytics data shows that what is the perfect time to post your content on instagram. After analysing the data from here you can decide what to do for the next posts and when to post them for better engagement.

To use analytics data features on your instagram account firstly you will need to convert your normal account into a business account. So how to do that?

Go to your profile and in the settings of your account change the status from normal to business account. After this you can see data of engagement on your posts like reach(through hashtags, other pages), likes, comments and new followers through that post.

So how to see that analytics data on your Instagram post? Follow the below steps 

  • In the Instagram app, tap on your profile photo

  • Tap on the Instagram Insights (bar chart) icon

  • Scroll down to the “Posts” section and tap on “See more”

After following these steps see the trend of engagement with your post by analysing the data. See which post is performing better in comparison to others and find out the reason why. See the best performed posts and implement the strategy to other posts and to your future posts to get more engagement and followers.


So there were some basic tips on how you can increase your instagram followers organically and grow your business or personal instagram account. All the above methods are tested and results were very interesting and positive. I personally implemented these tactics(travel instagram account) to grow my account from 40 to 2144 followers within 2 months.
