The Best Ways To Grow 1,000 Instagram Followers Monthly

March 30, 2021

1. Know Your Audience

Own what you love, and post! If you’re unsure who your key audience is, take a step back and think. Who will my posts appeal to and why? Whoever that select group of people is, create content for THEM.

2. Create a Cohesive Feed

  • Start with your color palette, and begin building visuals that match
  • Use a preview app on your phone or computer to see what posts look good next to each other
  • Come up with content ideas that relate to your services
  • Find other people who inspire you, and implement what you love from their feed
  • Ask your followers what they want to see in terms of content

3. Measure & Analyze Key Metrics

Next, it’s key to look at different social media insights. This way you can optimize the engagement times to grow your social media posts. Some key metrics to look at are audience engagement times, the number of times links are clicked on, and more. Promote your profile by optimizing those who will want to learn more from what you do. Growing a giant follower base is not easy.

4. Engage in the DM’s & Comments

Honestly, this is how I grew my business so far on social media. Being yourself, and building genuine relationships with others is so important. People will like you for you if you’re authentic. When it comes to networking, always start out in the direct messages (DM’s) by introducing who you are. Don’t sell. Some people make this mistake, and it’s a complete turn off for me as it may be for others.

When I get a DM or I DM someone, I want it to be about them. Finding out how someone’s day is so simple, and a great way to get to know them. Everyone has their own lives, and the last thing I want to see in my DM’s is someone trying to sell me something right off the bat. It’s like when you walk into a store, and a sales associate instantly asks you if you need help. This annoys the heck of out me haha. Focus on starting relationships because you want to know the other person. If anything, make it about them, not you.

5. Follow Similar Accounts

What you can do is go on Instagram and look for accounts that have similar content as yours. Find inspiration from them, and engage with them too. Sometimes a follow for a follow works.

6. Post on Stories, Reels, Guides

Making sure to post not only on your feed, but also stories are important. You can actually use hashtags on stories easily, and grow your audience that way too. Staying present on social media will help your followers feel engaged with you.

7. Use 20-30 Related Hashtags

Using hashtags will allow you to reach more of your target audience and grow followers at a much faster rate than if you don’t. Sometimes it does take time to research the best hashtags relative to your content, but I promise it’s worth it. People do look up hashtags to try and find posts related to keywords.
