  1. Great tips! I pretty much follow all of them but feel stuck where I’m at. I’m going to try to engage with more accounts. I do like your philosophy of growing organically and realize that can also mean slowly. But slow and steady wins the race, right?!

  2. Great tips Jasmine! Hashtags are definitely important and make sure you’re using the right ones to coincide with what you are posting. I’ve been taking better pictures too which has been a game changer for me.

  3. Totally agree on all the points, however IG user policy strictly prohibits unwanted comments and likes. Just for your information as this is something I have faced sometime ago

  5. Some great tips–I like the limit of hashtags too…I might go up to 5 but anymore then it’s TOOOOOOOOOO much. Editing is also very big!! One point I’m working one right now going to check out some of your fav apps =D

  6. instagram is the biggest mystery to me! Its my favorite social media, but it baffles me sometimes! The engaging is so important ive found, but more than just likes, actual comments and interactions.

  7. Thanks for this. Instagram is my newest social media outlet I’ve tried. I’m curious as to why you put thr hashtag in the comments? Does it just look better than to have them all in the pic itself?

  11. All great tips! The good photos one is key… I don’t understand when some people are like “I don’t know why I’m not getting more followers” and their photos are dark/blurry/bad quality or a million pictures of their baby and nothing else.

      • Exactly! I think one thing that anyone who wants to make it big on Instagram needs to realize is that it’s not a “photo album” but rather a “micro blog”. These are like little visual blog posts, with some of the words added in for the descriptions/comments, but you need to put your best foot forward just like you would on your blog.

        I mean yeah, if you want to just use it like a photo album, go ahead-that’s totally okay! Just don’t expect to gain a ton of followers or take it much further than that.

  12. I started my instagram account recently and didn’t pay much attention to it to be frank 😉 But now I’m going to get more serious and your tips will help me a lot!

  13. All of these are solid tips for Instagrammers! I think the most important one is the quality of pictures! Light & bright usually attract more followers 🙂

  14. I totally believe that hashtags are everything! However with so many out there, it is hard to pick the best ones sometimes!

  15. These are such great tips. I’m trying to increase my instagram following, and I find that what I’ve been missing is interacting/commenting on others’ posts. Just liking it isn’t enough!
