Do you realize that Instagram has over 600 million active monthly users? Amazing! No wonder the question I get asked the most is, “How do I increase my followers on this mega photo-sharing network?”

To help, here are some successful Instagram management and growth tips. While they don’t ensure you will be a success overnight, they will at least bring you a continual growth in followers. The problem is, many folks don’t want to put in the work necessary to manage an Instagram audience every day that produces true business results.

They want easy and fast tips for quick results. You want to hear a well-known secret? That sort of slothfulness gives you an Instagram account with plenty of followers but not plenty of engagement, not to mention few sales.

Post on Instagram every day one to three times

The top technique in producing solid business results with Instagram is to be present on it. That’s not a huge surprise. But how frequent should you be posting on Instagram? That all depends on your objectives. The Instagram accounts with the biggest followings are posting over 90 a month. When you do the math, that’s roughly around 3 times a day.

If you want to bring in a very big audience, you should be posting a lot of times a day, seven days a week. You really don’t have to post three times a day.

The worst thing you can do is buy Instagram followers. These folks will never truly engage with you or your content.

You may find an increase in your comments. However, true customers will see right throw those vague comments. Also, if you buy followers and Instagram finds out, your account will be banned. Then you will lose access true and fake followers. This puts a big hurt on your marketing plans.
