How to Build a Following on Instagram

Over the past 2 months, I have used my personal Instagram as a guinea pig to find out what works and doesn't on the app in terms of gaining a bigger following. Here is what I've found so far: 1. What not to do: - Follow/Unfollow - Buy followers - Misuse hashtags - Post random content - set up automatic DMs - set up automatic comments and likes - post at random times 2. What to do: - Post at the right times according to cold-hard data - Follow only people in your niche - Using the right hashtags (100K-500K posts) - Spend at least 30 minutes a day commenting on those relevant hashtags - Post consistent content (both in style and in substance) - Use DM groups to connect with up to 15 people in your niche at a time, come to an agreement to like each other's content when it goes live) - Use Stories properly (hashtags, polls, mentions, locations) -Create IGTV videos NOW --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/net-positive/support
