    Hi

    Please I'm trying to build my followers to 10k. I'm at 5k. Boosted it by buying only about 1k followers but that's it. The rest are genuine and organic. I'm noticing that the followers I got are reducing but I'm not willing to buy anymore. Any tips on how to build from there? I know about the hastags, follow/unfollow and all that but for some reason it don't seem to work for me.

    Help! Lol. Thanks!

    if you want prequality organic traffic, then the cheapest way is just the same MF and ML

    Bro how did you get to 5k haha, okay now that you've answered that question, do that 2X.

    If you somehow just ended up with 5k followers, follow people who are engaging with content similar to yours :)

    Stop being lazy. I got 16k in under 3 months and that was just manual work. 100% organic and I have a 10% engagement with around 350+ follows a day. Do the work, and it will show. DONT SHORTCUT IT BY BUYING FAKE FOLLOWERS.

    I've just started an IG account. It's a goldmine, but only got less than a 100 followers, however I did earn them with only a very few posts AND got follows from my target audience of which some have large sum of followers. What did you do to gain such results?

    16k in 3 months. Dude. Whatever you did couldn't have been legit. Anyway if you notice, I didn't buy the 5k followers. Read my post again. And I am working. Main reason I started this thread in the first place. If you wanna give advice, do so. Don't brag that you got 16k followers. The question is how? That's the question.

    2 years to get 5k is quite a lot, but it's for sure that it will not take you as long to get 5k more. I would just advice to keep doing what you do, try too see on others IG what are the trends and adopt this style and when it's an other change it, follow the wind. :)

    A really good (but tiring) manual method is to engage and Follow with at least 200-400 target audience that is within your niche, and be sure to filter real and actual people instead of Following spambots which is a waste of time any way. A good way to gauge the authenticness is to see their profile and see if their photos are from their daily life and if they are active enough. Make sure you like at least 2-3 of their recent of aged photos and Follow them and chances for them to follow back is usually VERY high, but this is assuming your page's content is solid and can be related to them. Do this daily and your genuine followers count will be rising fast.

    First off, it's not hard to figure out. I never said you bought 5k followers and I did read your post. You still bought fake followers, lol. You don't think what I'm doing is legit? Okay, do you know how hypocritical you are? It doesn't change anything for me. I'm busting my ass but since I'm getting better results than most people, then whatever I'm doing MUST be fake! My account is solid with a good / active following. Obviously all Instagram accounts are different because we all have our own "methods", but I'm not going to spoon feed you everything. Do what other big accounts are doing and actually post ENGAGING and AESTHETIC content (for me 3 - 4 times a day). You can follow and unfollow people too, but I recommend engaging with your followers by the hundreds daily. Talk to them and put in the work. THE KEY IS TO FORM LONG TERM RELATIONSHIPS EVERY SINGLE DAY. This builds your foundation for your content to get on the explorers page. But of course... no one wants to hear that, they just want the easy route.

    Which is why 95% fail in building a page.

    Guess that's the way she goes.

    I started doing IG In march with a new account, but I actively research my niche and talk to my following on a daily basis. Building a quality following to 6.5k was hard as balls for my first 2 months, but I didn't actually find a formula until after around 400+ posts along with a million questions. Once I did though, my shit went through the roof. It took me 2 MONTHS of hardcore analyzing to find a winning formula. What I'm saying here... is that it's gunna suck horse dick for a while, but if shits not popping for you - then you need to switch gears or find a new lane. I've had to do it twice now. The question isn't "how?" - that's too simple.

    Ask better questions and you might get better answers. Ask the RIGHT questions, and do whatever it takes to get them answered. If you can't get them... then start throwing shit against the wall. Then, once you're tired of it, throw more shit.

    Thanks for being straight. Alright I get it now. I only bought the 1k followers cuz i was damn curious to know if it was worth it. It wasn't. I coulda bought a whole lot more without blinking an eye but nope. IG page isn't niche or anything. It's actually related to the other thing I do, which is music. Yes to everything said. Full engagement. 100 likes and above. Sweet content. over 800 posts. Local celeb life ain't all that hard, and it pays off. Problem is them followers ain't increasing. Lol. But all other social media personal accounts I own are sweet. I was just wondering if it was just hard luck.

    Lol @ horse dick but yeah, 2 years means dick has been sucked, ya? So how to bump new shit?
    New account can't fly though. Has to be this or nada.

    Thanks!

    I did the same strategy where I engage with my followers and it does work for me. I also take advantage of the hashtags and discover options then follow them and like their posts and sometimes comment something nice. I do this every day, by the way, the IG account is for my dog.

    If you are willing to spend money it's always best to by shout outs or likes from big accounts than buying fake followers :)
    Likes can get you to the explorer page and that boosts your activity. You can also join engagement groups and keep doing the methods you did these two years.
    Also make sure your content is always new and appealing, what niche are you on?
