Summary of How to Grow Your Instagram Following
Do you want to be instafamous?

Well of course you do, who doesn't? Heck, these days, instafamous people are like celebrities!

Are you ready to become more famous on Instagram?

Well, unless you follow these five specific tips, you're not going to become instafamous.

Hey everyone, I'm Neil Patel, and today I'm going to share with you five ways you can explode your Instagram growth.

Have people told you, make sure you comment and like and follow other people who are popular, so that way you get more followers?

Sure, that's true, but that piece of advice is only half correct.

And here's what I mean.

If you start following half-naked models and you start liking all their stuff, and then those followers see your comments, they come to your profile; they start liking your photos, do you know what's going to end up happening?

After a while, they're going to stop liking your photos and pictures. Why?

Because those followers are irrelevant to what you're doing. You have to get very relevant followers.

So make sure you like, comment and follow other people but they have to be within your industry.

#2: Post visual and emotional content consistently
If people aren't bonding with your content, and it's not visual and emotional, they're not going to keep following you; they're not going to leave a comment, they're not going to like your stuff.

It has to be super emotional.

#3: Submit your content to other Instagram accounts
And here's what I mean by that.
There are Instagram accounts on everything.
A lot of people are lazy, but they have a ton of followers 'because they were early on, and all they do is take curated content and publish it and tag the person that they got that content from.

For example, if you're in men's fashion, there's a lot of Instagram profiles that just feature other men's fashion images and videos from other accounts. So make sure you create content and submit that to other accounts.

It's a great way to get tagged by other popular accounts that have more followers than you, and some of those followers will come back to your profile and start following you as well as leaving comments and liking your pictures.

#4: Collaborate with other influencers
You've probably seen this before on Instagram where people post pictures of each other, and they both tag each other on each other's profile, and this helps get more followers.

#5: Make sure you're posting pictures with memes

So if you follow these five tips, your Instagram following is going to explode!

You'll become instafamous, you'll start walking down the street, and everyone's gonna be like, "Oh, hey John, I follow you on Instagram, "you're awesome and amazing."

So if you want to explode on Instagram, follow these five tips. Not one, not two, but all of them.

And if you're unsure of what to do, just leave a comment below, and I'll walk you through it, step by step. I'll even tell you if your photos are good or bad, just leave a comment below.

    I think it will continue along a similar trajectory to what it is followed so far. Video is definitely going to become the primary way that people consume content on social.
