Today I’m going to teach you guys, how to get followers on Instagram in 2019 because Instagram is weird.
They have their algorithms all mixed up.
They even did some crazy stuff where they were having everyone swipe left to see their feed posts, and the entire internet freaked out.
They were like, “Woah. Sorry about that guys.” There was an accident then they put it back.
Anyway, we’re going to talk about Instagram.. because I’m doing a series on how to grow and monetize your Instagram.

Once you start and do those steps, you’re kind of going to hear crickets.
I’m going to give you guys a few tips on how to actually get followers now.
#1 I want you guys to start actually cross-pollinating with different people’s stories.
What does that mean?
So, everybody has stories. I know that if you don’t hit 10 thousand people, you don’t have the swipe up feature, but you actually have stories.
What you need to do is connect and create a little network for yourself of people. People you want to have a relationship with.
Then post their content on your Instagram and tag them. Most likely these people are going to see that because they were tagged on it.
When you do that, Instagram says, “Hey, add this to your story.” So, they can add your post to their story.
When your profile shows on their story, people see it and check out your profile, and if it’s set up properly, people will start to follow you.
That’s tip number one. At the end of the day, we are doing all organic strategies, we’re going to have to put some work in, right?
#2 The second thing, it’s also going to actually build more relationships. It’s kind of like, comment hijacking, right?
What your going to do, is your going to go to high-leveled people or people in your network. You can go niche specific or high-level.
When they post, you can turn on notifications so, you’ll know when they’re posting. You can go in and comment on there stuff.
Don’t comment like, “Yo, bro this is awesome” or a fire emoji or anything like that, but actually have a conversation with them.
Give some value back to the topics that they’re saying. Everyone’s going to start flooding their comments and they’re going to see you’re one of the top ones and they’re also going to check out your profile.
Also, what this does, is it gives the person that you’re commenting on, insight and like, “alright. I see this person, they’re commenting” and stuff like that.
Then you can start by getting inside of their DM’s, how to get relationships, building a bigger network, which is also extremely important.
#3 Build up your network. You’re going to want to create engaging conversations with people.
Then, probably, build an engagement network. This used to work and it’s not as prevalent now.
You always want to have people that will shout you out and post for you.
The reasons that this happens is if you have people that know a few more people or if you have people that are more connected, then when you create this network, Instagram sees that you’re having conversations with people that have more likes and followers that spikes and boost your engagement.
If you don’t have a network, you can go to WhatsApp.
WhatsApp have networks. There’s people in there. You can see people shouting if you search other pages.
Another app that works really really well is actually called Telegram. You can get that on your IOS. Check it out on Telegram. That’s it on how to find engagement groups using a few of those apps.
Those are three quick tips that you can use to grow your Instagram in 2019, guys.
