Once you got started on Instagram, you have to remember certain rules that will make your profile be more attractive for others:

  • Post at least one high-quality photo per day. All the researches show that the pages that consistently post high-quality content everyday get more clients. So, no matter whether this is your personal account, or an account of the business, keep posting high-quality content on a regular basis.
  • Find your niche. Similar to the previous point, you need to know your audience well and to satisfy their needs for content.
  • Add hashtags. When you post a photo on Instagram, make sure that you add proper, high-quality hashtag. This will actually allow other users to find your photo, thus prompting them to follow you. Never neglect the hashtags.
  • Build relationships. This is the crucial point: you must consistently interact with other users and build trustworthy, good relationships.
