7 Essential Instagram Growth Hacks

Hacking your way into Instagram, well, it’s not exactly possible in the literal sense of the word but there are so neat tricks that can get you a lot more exposure than you usually get so that’s what we’re going to discuss today.

Focus on Certain Lifestyles

Although this is not directly a growth hack the problem most people make is that they niche down too much, run out of ideas, and give up altogether.

So what you need to do is pick a certain lifestyle, and focus on that instead, for example, the stay-at-home mom, or the party crasher.

Just think of something that matches you well and you will never run out of ideas ever again.

Create Your Own Hashtag

On Instagram it’s all about branding and the easiest way to do that is by coming up with your very own hashtag.

In our case that could be something like #dripworksrocks, thanks to its uniqueness.

When people see this passing by often enough they know it’s us!

Every Heard of Regrams?

Regrams are simply shared posts but they like to invent a fancy word for it and there’s nothing wrong with that.

What you need to do is keep track of them.

By doing so you can join in the conversation and pull them over to your side.

You can even hunt down the people that just like the post and follow them and there is a very real chance they follow you back, after all, they already like what they’ve seen.

Automate Your Account

This is by far the most efficient way to grow your account to massive numbers, for an overview check this post:

The top nine bots are being reviewed by them so I don’t want to dive too much into this material right here but take a look.

I recently saw that the owner has 100k+ follower so that’s all the proof you need.

Contests are Favored

If there is one way to go viral it’s by giving stuff away, especially when it’s something impressive enough for people to share.

Don’t confuse impressive with expensive though.

It all depends on how attached your fans are, for someone like Katy Perry a hand signed DVD is already doing the trick but you can come up with something yourself that better matches where you stand.

If you offer a certain service you could give that away for any duration you want.

Shout it Out

So few people are doing this and for no good reason.

Everyone loves attention so why not share some of this love?

Your fans will appreciate it, hack, it might even inspire them to do the same without you even asking it, their motivation is probably hoping that you do the same for them.

Establish Relationships

The trick is to find (micro) influencers in your niche that are about the same size as yours.

If you start contacting people with 50,000 followers and you only have 500 followers it’s a waste of your time so don’t forget this.

Your account will grow insane fast this way and before you know it you’re the one with 50k+ followers.
