What is more important than having a big Instagram following? Nothing, it is where all your self worth should derive. I jest, of course. But having a big following can be used for good- it can help your career and be a great platform to express yourself.
Want to be #Instafamous, just for being your fabulous self? Well if you have a lot of spare time and dedication, then it's achievable. Follow these top tips, and in no time you'll be racking up thousands of followers.
1. Have a cute pet
This is arguably the fastest and most effective trick to get more followers. Look at @buddyboowaggytails. Buddy, Boo & Blu have an impressive 623k followers. It's a seriously cute account with witty captions. Now, if you want all the attention then this may not be the best route to go down because it'll be your pup in the spotlight, not you.
2. Have a theme
Succesful Instagram accounts tend to have a theme which they stick too, especially for a fashion based accounts this is a must. For example, @emilycocklin, who's insta is a visually pleasing curation. Make sure it looks cohesive and think of it like a blog rather than a Facebook page for images.
3. Have a schedule
If your followers get use to your schedule they'll come back at that time consistently. Post daily at least, and try to pick times when traffic is high. For example in the morning during people's commutes and in the evening after work.
4. Interact with your followers
Like the humble ruler you are, you don't mind speaking to the lay people. Respond to commenters and like their images back. Don't be that d*ck who won't tell people where you bought something from.
5. Edit your images
The latter points don't matter if your images are poor quality. Use apps like VSCO CAM, Afterlight and Facetune. Don't go OTT though, it's very obvious when someone has blurred out all their features.
6. Find a niche
Look at @cuteboys_withcats, such a simple idea but thoroughly effective. Finding something unique will make your account popular, it doesn't have to be revolutionary. Maybe if food is your thing then stick to one diet, like vegan.
If you follow those top tips I'm sure you'll be #Instafamous in no time...
