"If you want instagram to be a priority then you have to make it your priority."

Step 1

Focus on instagram, if you want instagram to be a priority then you have to make it your priority for a while, stop what you are doing on other platforms and stick to Instagram for a couple of weeks.

 

Step 2

Announce on your other social platforms that you're on Instagram especially if you're taking a break on the other social platforms so you can tweet it, you can post it on Facebook, and you can let them know where you are so that they can keep up with you there.

 

Step 3

Commit to posting daily, you heard me posting every day is essential to keeping the followers that you already have if you're inconsistent then people will just follow you.

 

Step 4

Follow big brands and influencers in your space, people scroll through through their followers of big brands and sometimes they will click into your account, if they like what they see they are much more likely to follow you back, add knit specifically hashtags to every single post, I like to add seven in the description below, I also like to use unique hashtags like the Instagram expert.

 

Step 5

Make a big deal about it tell people that you're on  Instagram,dedicate an email to your list, add your user name to your business card and maybe you gonna include social promo when your customers make purchase, you can use @ social Ps to create one of these unique promo cards.
