How to Get Your First 1,000 Followers on Instagram

Gaining your first 1,000 followers on Instagram can sound like an immense hurdle when you only have 5, and 1 of them is your mom. There’s also the problem of not knowing where to begin. If you’re talented enough to go viral in one go, congrats, but this isn’t for you.

Organic growth happens when you begin interacting with accounts who have similar content, as well as their followers. Why do I recommend doing this? Well, if 30,000 people like this one dude’s content (which is just like yours), they’ll probably like yours, too!

WARNING: This is a long, tedious, and time-consuming process.

There are so many YouTube videos, articles, and pricey online webinars claiming to provide people with Instagram success. Maybe all of these “go viral overnight” strategies are true, but I doubt it.

All the big accounts that I’ve studied on Instagram took a while to grow, unless they bought followers, went viral with one post, or have even follow-to-follower ratios.

Because my strategy is tedious, I haven’t tried it out on any other platform besides Instagram. I am an artist, so I also find this platform to be the best medium for my target audience, as it is visual.

However, I have repeated this process 3 times with different types of Instagram accounts. I have witnessed continued success.
