Instagram now has more than one billion users, and sky-high user engagement levels.
And with 80 percent of accounts following a business on Instagram, it seems like marketers might be keener than ever to get acquainted with Instagram for their business1.
I know we are at Buffer!
Lately, we’ve been sharing, liking, and trying new ways to grow  and it’s been so much fun. Since Instagram is a platform we’re keen to focus on, we thought it would be fun to research some ways to grow a following there.
Whether you’re growing your own personal account or working on behalf of a company, read on to find out the 10 best tactics (with tools and examples!) we uncovered that could help you grow a bigger, more relevant audience on Instagram.

Stick around with me because in this post I’ll share with you some secret trick way that helped some of our accounts become famous.

Instead of wasting your time trying out methods that don’t work.


1. Post consistently (at least once a day)

Visual marketing tool Tailwind studied more than 100,000 Instagram profiles in 2017 to understand how posting frequency affects follower growth and engagement rate2.
They found that the more often you post, the more likes and followers you get.
According to the study, profiles that posted seven or more times a week (or at least once a day) get more likes and gain more followers faster than those that post less frequently.


You can almost double your follower growth rate by moving from less than one post per week to 1-6 posts a week. You can more than double your follower growth rate again by moving from posting 1-6 times per week to once or more per day.

2. Create a theme for your photos.

Cool, so if you followed #1, people will naturally start to notice your username and may check out your account…give them something to fall in love with! I’ve found that it really helps to create a theme for your Instagram. Write down a few words that you want people to associate with your account. For mine, I hope people glean that it’s bright, artistic, and full of love. Which words would you use for your account? Once you’ve settled on a theme, try your hardest to stick to it! A few accounts that are killin’ it? 

3. Socialize.

It ain’t called social media for nothin’! Respond to the comments you receive and leave comments of your own on others’ work. Rather than something stale like, “cute dress,” try to leave genuine comments and questions that encourage them to post more photos.

4.Using Instagram Hashtags, the Right Way

If you’ve been using Instagram for a while now, then you probably know the importance of using the right hashtags. They are the best tool you have at your disposal to help you reach more people and, consequently. 
 In a recent test made by the Social Media Lab to find out whether they could get 100 new followers on Instagram in 24 hours, the tactic they used for hashtags was as follows:
  • Pick 30 relevant hashtags
  • Make sure they’re not too popular, bust also not too infrequent – the sweet spot, in this case, was having anywhere between 50k to 300k images per hashtag. The goal was to get the images in the top 9 for the hashtag in order to increase visibility; if there are too many images for that hashtag on Instagram, it’s close to impossible to achieve this, particularly if your profile isn’t hugely popular already

Using Instagram Hashtags, the Right Way

  • When you post your hashtags, don’t put them in the image caption – rather, put them in a comment. Neil Patel, too, recommends this – it looks better, for one, and secondly, as he puts it, hashtags aren’t there to be seen so much as they are there for people to be able to find your content.
 

5.Be Active and Engage.

I’m not going to spend too long on this as the headline really says it all: be active and engage.
It’s not enough to just post content, you also need to engage – and it’s a great way to reach new people and get targeted users to follow you and engage with you back.
Always put 5 or so minutes aside every day to engage: leave comments, respond to each and every comment you get on your content, like images and videos, and so on.
It will not only help you boost your Instagram engagement, but it can also help you get more followers – so, if you find any users that fit with your audience, reach out to them by liking their content and leaving comments. It will put you on their radar – and it could lead to a follow-back from a genuinely interested and engaged user.

Conclusion

To sum up, a solid Instagram growth strategy requires:
  • A solid daily content schedule: 1-2 photos a day, one live video per day, and at least 5 Instagram Stories – the more, the merrier
  • Always use relevant hashtags – find up to 30 relevant hashtags and post them in a comment, rather than in the posts’ caption
  • Follow targeted users – find top competitors and follow their followers (up to 50 per hour)
  • Engage – engage with other users on a daily basis and be an active user on the platform
