4 Ways to Make Your Instagram Account Awesome

Posted on by

Instagram is really in right now and if you want to get more followers and likes than all of your friends then you just need to follow these five steps and your account will actually be awesome. Before I learned how to be successful on Instagram, I’d get very little engagement from all the users who supposed to care about what I’m posting. As if. First I thought I would buy Instagram likes and just watch my account grow. It wasn’t a bad plan actually, buying likes is good for short term gain and I was always happy. It didn’t take long for that feeling to fade away though. I decided to make it my mission to become a top tier Instagrammer.

1. Toss Up Them Hearts

As my grandmother was fond of saying, you have to give love to get love. Throwing some hearts around to some users who deserve it made me notice that they’d return the favor whenever they got to my posts. It was like watching a beautiful symbiotic relation blossom. What was better was these users would start to post pictures that actually inspired me to up my game. Liking other is the easiest way to get them to like you.

2. Follow and Comment Often

I can’t believe how simple this one is — at first I didn’t want to comment on anyone’s posts unless I knew them. Even then, I really didn’t want to be that social on Instagram. However, I started and now I can’t stop. It was like a revolutionary wave of social media inertia hit me and I just kept going. Now I get at least 5 follows a day on my personal account, 10 – 20 follows when I’m really milking it. What can I say, people love me.

3. Be Original

My originality came in the way of copying others. No really! I would look at what others were doing, or what I found funny and just started trying to emulate it. I would put my own fresh take on it and then it would turn into something actually awesome. I even volunteered at a haunted house last October and the inciting motivation was an Instagram post that I knew I could do better.

4. Encourage People to Like and Share

This is the easiest one to do and the most important. I don’t know how you use Instagram, but for me to make more than 5 posts in a given day would mean that something truly great was happening. Most of the time, I’m just sharing a quirky part of my day. The reason why I mention this is because I started asking people to share these mundane snapshots of my day and, crazy thing is, they did.

Some of these probably sound like no-brainers but it’s never too soon to get back to basics. I started using this system 3 months ago and my account now has close to 10,000 followers. This is my personal account! I’m just a regular nerdy guy, but hey — you gotta give the people what they love!
