How to make your instagram popular fast! - A simple guide to 500+ free instagram followers!

With the below tricks and tips, I gained over 500 followers in less than a month. In fact, I didn't even use the below tips to their full potential because I had finals and wasn't able to dedicate a lot of time towards my Instagram. So if you spend time and a little bit more efforts (you can implement the below tips in your free time so you don't feel like you're wasting a portion of your day), you can get 750+ followers in a month's time only! This guide is best if you have just started your Instagram account!

Here's what the below tricks did to my following:
In the below screenshots, you will notice changes like a change in my display picture, bio, etc. I assure you that the screenshots are all from the same account. You can visit my Instagram by clicking here to see that all the posts are present, proving that all of the below screenshots are from the same account of mine.
I started documenting on May 17th, 2017, as you can see in the screenshot below. I had already started using the tricks below to get around 20-ish followers before the below picture, but let's consider only from this date onward for a proper analysis.
Day 1 - May 17, 2017
 As the one-month mark approaches, I get exactly 500 new followers since Day 1 and more!

I decided to only document till this day (just one day short, not much of a difference) as I had already passed 500 new followers. As you can see the below tricks will definitely gain you 500 new followers if you follow them carefully!

The following methods/tricks and tips are a combination of organic and inorganic ways (completely legal and do NOT contain methods like bots and paid followers - the methods are totally free and will definitely not get you in trouble in any sort of way)
I personally recommend you to use all these tips, but only till a certain point because after a while you will start gaining followers organically without doing much (just maintaining your Instagram account's quality). Enjoy:

1. Follow for follow - Find people with lower follower numbers or similar follower numbers as yours. Do this by going to the explore page on Instagram and use the following hashtags: #newblogger
For me, the hashtag "#newblog" works the best.

2. Try to find and follow people who have the most recent posts under that hashtag because they will most likely be active and follow you back instantly (hopefully!). Recent post = Bingo!

3. Be active and like followers posts so that they don't unfollow you. This isn't going to definitely stop them from unfollowing but it'll make it more unlikely

4. A lot of people will unfollow you after a few days or will follow you (even though you don't follow them) and then unfollow you. Download an unfollow app to unfollow people you follow who've unfollowed you or who never followed you back.

5. Try to find out when most people post in the hashtag you think works best for you. You'll get a lot of people to follow and you'll be done for the day.

6. I recommend following 15-30 people every day if you want 15+ followers every day. You can even follow more if you like but don't forget that Instagram has a limit and you should probably stop after following 100 or so people (I think the limit is either 130 or 160)

7. Initially, I suggest networking - i.e. connecting with other blogs with less than 200 following asking them to follow you back so you can build a base number. That's how I did it. I followed a lot of blogs of similar type to my blog and they followed me back. Build relationships with the nice people you connect, DM them, have conversations, like their photos, and hopefully, they will do the same! 

8. It is also helpful to direct your friends from one account to another if you have two accounts. So if you have a personal Instagram account and are wanting to get more followers on your Public or Blog account, then direct them. Occasionally put up an Instagram story saying "Go follow my other account!" or "new post on my other account, check it out!" and tag your second account so people can easily click and visit it.

9. Quality posts are important! Think of it as, you only "heart" the posts that you like or are visually pleasing. It's the same with others. So post content that you would be inclined to like if it were posted from another account. If you have enough posts like that, people will follow you because "#feedgoals" 

10. Theme! An Instagram theme is way more visually attractive than a feed full of pictures, each with a different filter/look. Try to make your feed more cohesive, this will help you get some organic followers and likes!

11. Use all 30 hashtags that Instagram lets you use! It's the best way to make sure that you reach a wider audience. Make sure the hashtags you use are relevant and related to your niche if you want more likes and follows.

12. Post at Instagram "peak time". You'll definitely get noticed. In my timezone, it is either 10:00 am or 6:30 pm, do some research or just be observant and see when you get more likes. Of course a higher number of impressions and likes could be because you posted something which more people liked, but it could also be the timing. If you post at the correct time, you will get more engagement and more follows!

13. I recommend setting a limit. Once you have a base number of 500-1000 followers I don't that you use this trick because a lot of the people followed you back because you asked them too hence they may not like all your posts. Your followers:engagement ratio could increase (which isn't that great). Hence after your initial goal for a number of followers, try to grow organically - and it will happen, especially if you follow the above step!
