I'm sure there are numerous ways already posted here on how they get followers. This may seem the same as the other tips. I am simply sharing my method and what tags I use. I'm a newbie so please don't hate. Here's what I do...I'd search for popular tags in instagram like: -followback -folow4folow -shoutout -teamfollowback and as lame as it might sound these three works very well for me too ... -bieber -justinbieber -onedirection find at least one person from this search. Sample: I'd choose one user from my "One Direction" search. Then I will then check if this person have more follower or following. If this person follows more than the followers they have then that's a winner. This person will followback. So click follow. Then go to who they're following and start following from that list. More or less in 24 hours you'll get followback and simply unfollow them after. Rinse and repeat. I at least follow 200-300 a day and wait for the followback then unfollow and do it all over again. If this had helped you, I would very much appreciate a thanks.
