Here is how I went from 200 followers to 10 000 followers in 4 weeks on Instagram.
Instagram offer 58 times more engagement than facebook, 120 times more engagement than twitter. When you post on Instagram, people actually care.
Instagram is the top social media when it comes to interaction. SnapChat come first but you need an actual fan base before being able to use Snapchat.
So to grow a fan base, nothing compare to Instagram.
There’s a bit of work needed to get to 10K but it’s all worth it. Here is the formula to get to your first 10K follower in 4 weeks
Formula to your first 10K Instagram Follower
First you need to find a topic for your instagram. Motivational quotes are really popular. People love to read them, I love to read them and they are also fun to produce.
The goal is to find a topic that will get people engage. So motivational quotes are perfect.
The Images Creation
When I started I created all my images with 2 iOS apps: Typorama and wordswag. They are very easy to use and they let you upload your logo to the images.
Now, my girlfriend actually create some quotes with Illustrator. I’d say that half of them are done with the apps and half with Illustrator. But you got to know that you don’t need to use any software. Just the 2 apps I named above are plenty to create your quotes.
Try to find a theme and always use the same tone of color.
This is the secret. The best frequency I found is to post 1 picture every 3 hours. But it’s very easy to do it with Crowdfire. You can schedule post ahead of time, you get a reminder when it’s time to post.
Instagram API won’t let apps post automatically for you, but you can schedule de picture and have the description ready ahead of time so you just need to press “post.”
Reposting other people content is a very easy way to leverage other account. I usually post about 50% of the images are other people account. It makes it so I have less content to create and also, I got to do Share 4 Share with other account.
How to get more followers
This is the magical part. To get followers, you need to download a phone apps called: crowdfire.
This app is awesome. It let you follow the follower of similar account then yours. So find an account that share similar post then your, enter their username in the crowodfire apps and you will see all their followers.
All you have to do is follow them. they will get a notification that you follow them and if you post great picture they will follow you. It’s that simple.
Now all you have to do is follow new people everyday and if you do it well, you will reach your 10K followers in 4 weeks.
