One of the most popular social media networks is Instagram. Building a large number of followers is a top priority for individuals and brands because there will be more attention to capture. These strategies have been proven to help businesses build a large audience of INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS.

- Watermark all original content.
Do this to let people know who should receive the credit if they share it. People will screenshot and repost your images so you need to protect them to receive the exposure and credit. The watermarks should not be bothersome but legible.
- Use geotag feature on Instagram.
Geotag your photos with places you are or places where your target audience would likely be. For instance, I tag Starbucks whenever I post a meme about coffee. When that geotag is search for, people who love starbucks will see my meme about coffee and follow me.
- Tag relevant accounts with larger following in your photos.
For instance, if I produce a meme about Rihanna, I could tag her, E-News, her manager, comedy accounts, accounts about pop culture, etc. This will notify them of my post and they may follow me and repost my image with credit to their very large following which will attract more exposure.
- Choose a theme and be consistent.
There are lots of accounts so I thought about what made me unique. I choose to grow my account using shock humor with an unabashed, sexually charged female voice. Every content I posted had a sole purpose of making people laugh in the same self-depreciating, unapologetic voice. For your INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS to remain engaged, you have to stay consistent. They will unfollow you if you are inconsistent.
- Use the right hashtags.
Hashtags have become very useful with the new algorithm. Research tending and relevant hash tags for your target audience. You need only 30 hash tags per post. If too vague, the most popular hash tags will be inundated within a few seconds. Do not put hash tags in the caption of the post. Save a list of the most effect hash tags.
- Make your content shareable and pleasing.
Your content should be interesting, shareable and aesthetically pleasing. No one will screenshot your hilarious and perfectly worded meme if your watermark is printed boldly across the image or if you have a huge promo or ad on it.
- Be consistent with your posting schedule
Post at least once a day. Your following will not grow if you do not post for a week or more. Your followers will be expecting your content so it is pertinent that you deliver to them constantly. With more posting come more followers.
- Post at the right time for your audience.
If you reside in Los Angeles or anywhere in the west coast and you write post in the wee hours of the morning, you may miss all those on the east coast who visit their Instagram account when they wake up. Do a research to find out when your audience are online and post at those times.
