Instagram has more than 500 million monthly active users and also known as one of the
biggest social media platforms in the world.
companies and small businesses risk being ignored or forgotten by a huge portion of consumers without their presence on Instagram.
So in this article I am going to show you 7 simple methods on how to grow your Instagram page
1. Post Regularly
Instagram use an algorithm based timeline. Consistency is a key element to getting your post to appear at the top of the timeline. Do not stick to photos only. Post videos and stories.
You can get a lot of engagement from posting them. Add 5-10 Instagram stories per day. This will keep
you regularly at the top of your followers’ newsfeeds.
Post a mix of both videos and still photos on stories.

If you do not post regularly, no one is going to bother following you.
2. Use Quality Hashtags While Posting
Instagram allows for a maximum of 30 hashtags per
post. Many power user can be found maxing out this
ability. If you use that many, you will not have to worry about hashtag fatigue.
Instagram users do not seem
to get them. One study discovered that hashtags is equals to more likes on Instagram.
Using hashtags on Instagram gives you more visibility. Users use hashtags to navigate easily to topics they are interested in. So they can expose your image to a large and targeted audience. If you are not using them, your audience will not grow.
3. Organize a Photo Contest
In Instagram, there are 3 types of contests.
Like to Win Contests: You simply ask users to like
an update. Everyone who do so will be entered into the contest.
Hashtag User-Generated Content (UGC) Contests: You create a contest-specific hashtag and ask your followers to share a photo or video using that
hashtag to enter. This is the contest I recommend.
Email Contests: You ask participants for their email address to enter. The main benefit of this is that you generate email leads.
4. Follow People with the same Interest
If you have time, try to follow 20-30 users per hour. Many will begin to follow you back. Instagram wants to keep users from abusing the system. So if you try to follow too many people within a certain amount of time, Instagram will block your ability to follow new people. But they will not ban your account.
Locate your top competitors. Then start to follow their followers. If they follow your competitors, they might choose to follow me, too. You are in the same industry and are providing just as much value. Do it every day.
If you only follow 20-30 users per hour, you are unlikely to get blocked. But if you do get blocked, simply wait an hour and try again. Most likely, you will not face any problem.
Try this methods and tell me how far you have gone.
