How To Get 10K Followers on Instagram!

Building your personal brand and business on Instagram is a huge part of any growth strategy for 2021…but how can you grow as a new or small account to reach 10,000 organic followers?

If you’re ready to level up, you can purchase my COMPLETE GUIDE TO INSTAGRAM GROWTH IN 2021 right here! If you want to know more about what information you’ll find in it, read on!

First let’s be clear about WHY having an organic following is SO important. If your followers are fake, or bots, or people who don’t really care about you and only followed you for a chance to win a giveaway then they won’t be interested in YOU or what your personal brand and business is all about. Also, buying followers is an ALGORITHM KILLER!! Every time you share a post Instagram shows it to a small percentage of your audience. If that audience likes your post (and shows that be liking, commenting or sharing) that signals to the Instagram algorithm to push it out further. So if you have fake followers who won’t be interacting with your content you’ll be killing all your future posts as they’ll never get shared!

What’s the secret to growing organically on Instagram? Create SHAREable content! If you create content that people share with their followers you will have an organic (and FREE!) avenue for reaching new followers. So long as you’re providing something valuable to them – whether that’s entertainment, inspiration or advice on a topic they care about they’ll want to follow you.

One of the things I believe most when it comes to social media is that community is SO MUCH stronger than competition! That’s why I want to give back to YOU with my first tip on where to start.

Define WHO you are and WHY people should follow YOU!

An Instagram profile needs to do two things really clearly – tell people who you are and make them interested in seeing the content you create.

In order to achieve this you need to figure out these two basic ideas and be able to articulate them in just a few words, because that’s all the space there is on your profile!

For inspiration START by looking at your favorite influencers in your niche. Go to their profiles and take note of the information they’re sharing. Look at accounts with 5K-50K followers, larger profiles tend to break the rules or create their own!

If you are trying to grow your personal brand or platform on Instagram I created a simple easy to use 13 page digital download guide to help you build your community online.

This easy to use guide will give you the practical tips and advice you need to grow your Instagram account from zero to 10,000 followers on Instagram, starting right now!

This 13 page digital download guide includes a proven strategy will help you build a personal brand with loyal, engaged followers who not only will be interested in what you post but in what you’re doing beyond the Instagram platform.
