This is How To Grow Your Following (Instagram) From 2k to 4k in 10 Days or Less

To grow your following on Instagram in 2020, there are outdated strategies that do not work anymore. Many of the tips, tricks, hacks, and apps that were once all glitter and gold are all just fluff.

Ask any social media user. The Instagram algorithm too caused a lot of frustration and confusion among businesses and Instagram agencies that depended on the chronological feed to grow the follower/following ratios of personal and business profiles FAST.

Instagram has evolved from just a social media app to a platform with a large number of business functionalities. Other tools, features, and updates are also underway.

Instagram business accounts have Shopping posts running as Sponsored ads

A new Story Camera mode called “Clips” allowing users to record segments of videos into a single video Story just like in TikTok , dubbed the next Instagram is being tested, as written by Jane Manchon Wong

The Verge also states that Instagram is developing the next new standalone messaging app, Threads for sharing content just like Snap Chat

The revolution in branding and advertising deems yesterday’s strategies obsolete.  New user behavior has replaced traditional marketing for business accounts.

Your following is what makes or breaks your success on Instagram.

What is Your Goal in Growing your Follower/Following Ratio on Instagram?

Define specific goals that have achievable targets.

Social media growth is a result of a community of an engaged loyal audience. This is the PageRank Juice of Instagram.

When you outline the specific goal of growing your profile following, ‘what you look for, you will find’.

  • Is your primary reason to grow a brand of a loyal community?
  • Is it to find your voice or widen your influence?
  • Is it to brand yourself or establish your audience?
  • Is it to generate interest or build a following?
  • Is it to circulate your work or sell a product or service?
  • Is it to expand your readership or receive feedback?
  • Is it to become popular or entertain?
  • Do you want to educate your audience?

It can seem impossible to stand out from 1 billion users, however, creating a successful strategy like a pro in no time is crucial for your business brand’s presence, reach, and recognition on Instagram.

In our case, we were testing a new growth hacking tool to handle the increasing number of managed business profiles.

7 Strategies to Incorporate in Your Instagram Marketing and Content Planning Solutions

Content marketing

Each post, poll, photo, and video on Instagram has to be of value.

How do you wow and empower your audience?

Are you engaging, inspiring, or humorous?

Do you use metaphors in a way that generates instant gratification, even if its only a smile?

Transformational, motivational, and educational content alternated with humor and memes. Posts that tend to get more user engagement have photos with faces, at least one hashtag, or result-oriented posts with statistics, data, infographics, and surveys.

Influencer marketing

Partnering with other Instagram users in relevant and related niches developed more trust. In this case, accounts in the Startup, Small business, Authors, Book bloggers, and Boss babes attracted new followers.

Relevant hashtags

Using up to 30 hashtags in the post and additional others on post stories targeting the specific audience increased engagement.

Quality Leads

Super targeted high-quality leads of people and businesses that have similar objectives, even if they are in different niches.


You can have a million followers but if they don’t like, share or comment on your posts, it doesn’t matter. Instagrammers like Marina De Giovanni states that success on social media is doing what the social platform likes, like boosting your content. If you have a little money to spend, run like campaigns. 

Test the ad headline with the image used, and switch them up until you see what works for you.

Shout Outs

Other Instagram users in related niche or whose profiles are in sync with your profile tag and mention your profile on their posts or stories. This could be free or paid. In the case of the profiles in this article, there was a mutual benefit of related Instagram users.


The other ways mentioned above are great, but above, like other posts, responding to comments on posts, stories and direct messages within 24 hours shows increased attention, thereby increasing followers. Authenticity plays a role in attracting followers to your profile.


What is Contained in Your Posts?

Content marketing stats show you how to proceed successfully with each motivational quotes, videos, and images relevant to your audience’s likes with links to your existing website.

You kill two birds with one stone: You increase your social media following and at the same time, you drive more traffic to your website.

Align this with the content that your audience wants to see. Test your blog and know that what works for you, may not work for another Instagram profile account. A case study, video, podcast, infographic, game, meme, GIF in a post depends on your content marketing strategy.

  1. This is great info. Instagram is one of those platforms people get so frustrated with. Growing your IG audience feels at times like an impossible task. You broke the process up in a very manageable way. I liked how you pointed out we have to figure out what we want our goal is with growing that following. I admit I am one of those people who sort of gave up on it, but this gives me some new food for thought.

    1. Madi,
      Who’s kidding who? 🌞
      It is not a secret anymore that this frustration is the reason many top brands just buy out Instagram followers of ‘high quality.’
      Each problem is an opportunity and a successful business is created.
      Now, if you are on tight budget, ‘consistently’ sharing relevant stuff and working with the right team can grow your Instagram following FAST. You only have to remember that once something finds its way on the Internet, it’s hard to get it off. So always thinking about what you are posting and how it can affect you and your life is a priority.
      Beating the algorithm, even with a decent following leaves many still frustrated on Instagram.
      There is no harm in taking a mini-break though!
      Otherwise its a social platform that has evolved from just sharing photos, with the most recent initiative to support small businesses.
      Today, the social platform works hard to keep users in the platform by providing more and longer content formats.
      It is a great feeling to know that you are thinking of revamping your IG.
      Let us help you.🏆
