Been playing about with building an audience on Instagram, I've managed to go from 0 followers on a brand new account to close to 500 in 5 days, at this rate with a bit of natural growth I believe I'll hit close to 5,000 followers in 30 days, over a year that would be 60k followers but I'd expect close to 100k. Currently average photos I post i'll get between 40-60 likes and few comments. How i've done it so far: Post awesome photos Hashtags - Using relevant hashtags and lots of them Follow relevant users - Follow them, like 3 of their photos Unfollow those that don't follow you back after a few days (not yet automated this) Comment and interact with users Not used any automated tools (instagram is known to ban users who use many of these e.g Autolike, Autocomments etc) The account is generic and i'll only be pushing my business related to it at a later date. Any of you lot tried or have big instagram accounts? Any tips?
