People don’t become Insta famous overnight, to do it you have to optimise every feature Instagram has to offer. If you have an instagram account or multiple accounts, it can be annoying to have little to no followers, especially when you go over to T Swift’s account and she has over 66.2 million!

Instagram is more fun when you have more people following you because you feel important. It’s not easy and it’s going to take time, dedication and hard work to gain lots of followers. So here’s 5 helpful tips on how to quickly become popular on Instagram.


If you want people to follow you, you have to consistently post. This doesn’t mean spamming everyone's feed with 10 posts a day, 1 or 2 (maximum) posts a day is more than enough. Just be sure to have a presence, no one is going to follow an empty profile.


Make sure the images you're posting are good quality! Blurry, out of focus and dark photos are not going to gain any attention. Well thought out photo’s with good exposure and lighting are key. It’s better to post nothing rather than posting photos that aren’t any good.


People want to know who you are, what you do and why they should follow you. Make sure you have a specific direction or topic that your Instagram account is going to revolve around. Make sure you write a simple and concise description letting people know what the deal is.


Reach out and promote engagement in your posts, go to your current social media friends and let them know your account exists. Engage with other accounts by commenting, liking and generally sharing the love. It’s equally important to engage with your followers and build a strong online relationship with them, this way you will get the most from your Instagram audience.


You should be utilizing relevant hashtags however, there is no need to overwhelm and annoy your current followers with too many irrelevant hashtags. Too many hashtags will make you look like a spammer. Commenting and liking photos from other people's accounts will show people you’re a real person, not a scammer and it will gain you views.
