I feel like I'm jumping into the whole Instagram thing a little too late, but better late than never, right? What are some techniques you find effective in gaining legitimate followers? I seem to end up attracting nothing but bots / fake accounts more often than not. Sure, it's another follower, another number, but it's one less person to engage. It's a little disheartening. Has anyone found that hitting the popular page has helped them to gain actual followers? (I'd actually really love to know the answer to this.) What about mass liking certain tags? (I have personally found this brought in more bots than real people.) I should note that this is more personal rather than business / money making. I just have no idea where to go from here. My content is not bland or bad and it's original. Maybe I'm just going about it the wrong way. Thoughts?
