How Do You Grow Your Instagram / Social Media Followers?



How Do You Grow Your Instagram / Social Media Followers?

Postby Altair » Mon May 22, 2017 10:59 pm

Hi there guys,

I listened to too much of the "social media is evil" garbage in my college years and it resulted in me missing out on growing my Instagram account as well as facebook friend count. Now I see popular kids who had 1k+ friends and 1k+ followers on Instagram and I want to know how to get to that stage from where I am at (120 Instagram followers and 600 facebook friends).

How do I do this without resorting to gimmicks such as following and adding random strangers I haven't even met?

I understand that social media has a way of enraging a lot of guys who aren't popular on it and some guys have their emotionally heavy vendetta against it,
please keep that out of this thread because as Richard and Grand Pooba will tell you, moral lectures almost always fall on deaf ears when it comes to me and believe me, Richard and Grand Pooba are quite the eloquent and intelligent minds on here so if they have issues changing my goals then well, you guys should not waste your time trying to lecture me on the evils of social media.

Altair,

1)Stick to one goal

2)Don't deviate to many other goals

3)Don't make it personal

4)it's nothing personal

5)it's business

6)you not suppose to be "morally" "correct", ppl only care feelings, and ultimately, why they subscribe, the goal/objective of point 1).

7)Post everyday at least once.


Disobey all this rules, and see your instagram plane goes down. Fuck reality, that's the notion. You suppose to be utopian. But becareful of this. Litigation, Dangers can be on you despite people cheering for laundry.

when "stupid" people gather, you can be stupid too.

AHEM, i do digital marketing and I have experience in social media management.

Growing your social media account is quite straightforward. What you're going to want to do is this lovely little tactic called community building. You create a community of people who have the same interest as you do.

If you're a gardener and post about flowers a lot, then you're gonna wanna follow and engage with other people who are gardeners.

You mentioned you're adverse to "gimmicks" like following and adding random strangers you've never met. However, following a ton of people in the same niche as you WHEN YOU'RE FIRST GETTING STARTED can be incredibly effective, up until a certain point.

Any other questions, let me know. There's lots of tactics.

How do people with 1k followers on Instagram do it?

Postby Altair » Tue Aug 08, 2017 11:59 pm

I run into a few accounts that are mutual friends with my friends and they have over 1k followers as well as tons of likes on pics, like upwards of 300 and sometimes as much as 700. Now the vast majority of these accounts are hot girls in the 18-25 age range but I notice I occasionally come across guys who are in this situation too. Now I can see this being easy to do if you are in high school or in your college days where you are constantly running across the same people so you will add them on social media.

I want to be in that situation myself but I got a long way to go to get to 1k followers. Any ideas on how I can make it happen?

Do not want to buy any followers or do something scammy like that.

A little research never hurt anyone, man. There's plenty of resources that explain exactly how you can gain a decent amount of followers if you look for it. I'll give a couple straight forward things.

-Use popular hashtags to get your stuff on more searches in general. The more popular hashtags you use, the more your stuff will be seen and exposed.

-Come up with a personal or group hashtag you can start using. If you come up with a hashtag that's trendy, you can create your own sort of "community" with that hashtag.

-Follow other people with stuff similar to yours. If you go on their page, like a few of their pics, they make like yours back. Then if you follow them, they will probably follow you back, and so forth.

-Time of day that you post matters. There's certain times of day that more people are scrolling instagram than not. If you post then, the likelyhood of you getting likes will go up naturally.

Try these things and see if you can grow a bit.

But I mean people with 1k followers that they seem to know IRL.

So the other way I would have asked is how these people manage to know so many people in real life and have so many new friends, like do they do it?

Ask.

A while ago, I uploaded a video to Youtube. Today I visited the account.
There was a comment.
"Hey, ______! What a great video! Please follow me on Instagram, my name is ______ or click here: instagram.com/______ Have a wonderful day, _______."
Curious, I clicked the link.
That dude had 227k follower.

I know they know them IRL because their followers actually comment on their pics, like their pics (they get a lot of likes per pic), and they are all from around the same area instead of random accounts. I've asked a few of them as well and they have said they added people they knew IRL so I am wondering how I can meet that many new people.

Listen, just because their followers comment on and like their pictures, and they are from the same area, DOES NOT mean that they know them in real life. Yes, they will know some of their followers from real life, but realistically there's no way that they know ALL of their followers from real life.

What is happening is they are doing online community building to get to that amount of followers and engagement. I mentioned this in your other thread. Start interacting with other locals on IG. Like their pictures, comment on their pictures, follow their account, direct message them to say hello, etc. When you build a relationship with them they will just naturally like your page, and like and comment on your photos especially if you got some cool pictures on there that provide value to them.

Try this out for a few weeks and let me know how it goes.

I don't know man...

I'll try it but I might have asked the wrong question, what I should have asked is how I meet a lot of new people IRL to the point where my Instagram account also reflects that. But thank you BackStory, and btw man, feel free to hop on over and check my journal, might be updating it soon!

Altair,

Backstory has a good point. Most of these people you see don't get nearly as many responses from their followers as you'd think, because they don't actually know these people or are only being followed for reasons of popularity. Here's a good example: at my last job there was this girl we hired almost exclusively because she was a social media expert. She had tons of friends on FB and followers on Instagram, and her Twitter page was insane (over 10k+ retweets regularly). Couple weeks ago, she makes a post with a caption complaining about how only 5% of her followers were going to like it. And she was right, when you look at her statistics (and those of many other high-follower accounts) you'll see a like-to-follower ratio of about 5-10%. And these are usually hot girls posting pictures of themselves, which is pretty much the most likeable thing on social media. By contrast, I've got a low follower count (less than 100) and have a like-to-follower ratio of about 15-20%. Granted, way fewer likes, but it shows me the people following my account are people who know me and probably genuinely like me.

If you're going for a high-follower count, there are plenty of guides out there that'll tell you to use trending hashtags, follow similar blogs and post regularly enough that they'll follow back, and unfollow blogs that don't follow back after a while (having more followers than followed blogs is seen as higher value). If you want more followers you actually know, you can't do that without getting to know more people. Join organizations or large groups where it's easy to meet people. Have more Facebook friends and follow them on IG. Keep in mind that as a guy, unless you become a celebrity you're never going to have the follower numbers that girls do, so hold yourself to a realistic standard. The guy I know with the most followers is a former frat boy turned business owner, high charisma, good looking, meets several new trainees and clients a day (that's how I met him), and posts semi-regularly - and he's still short of 1k followers. If you really want it, it's going to be hard. So make sure you know exactly why you want it, because odds are that four-digit number won't make you any happier.

Cheers,

Funny that you go to Arizona St man because I would think it would be so common to see kids with 1k followers there. At my alma mater (D1 southern school), I met more than enough people in Greek Life who had followers well over 1k and some had them even into 2k. Met a few guys who had over 1k followers and one has over 3k followers. It has always been my curiosity as to how they are meeting so many new people that add them on Instagram and when I see their page, photos are usually filed with comments with people (some who I know for sure know that person).

I've met people who did it the fake way and have over 10k followers but I can just tell it is fake a lot of times. With some sorority girls and others of a more popular crowd, it doesn't seem to be like that. It seems like they have the standard 1k to 2k followers, a lot of whom they seem to know. The average amount of likes is around 300 to 700 for a pic, at times even over 1k.

I know it is going to be hard as fuck man, at times I have many doubts given that I am in a medium sized city now and no longer a college setting but I guess if there is a will there is a way. Currently I am looking into some hobbies for the weekend that can help me meet people, it is most definitely a grind dude and there is zero doubt in my mind about that.

It is just something that I want for myself and who knows, maybe I don't get it and fall way short. Maybe all the shit they say about social life after college is true, that there are no longer fun people to be around and everyone becomes that boring old adult fast but at least I put up a fight. Going to take a while for me to get there for sure if I am doing it but what better way to come out of my shell even more.

Lets discuss strategies for growing social media/building personal brand

Postby Oh Pry » Tue Feb 06, 2018 9:59 pm

I feel that this is something a lot of us, even experts on Girlschase, have struggled with.

Why are we doing this?

I think that there is a strong chance with where we are going, in the future your personal brand is going to be very important. We kinda see it with dating apps but so much attention has shifted to social media, especially for the under 30 age group. I have met guys who have had success and inflated status due to a high follower count as well as a ton of likes on their pics. I guess there is some psychology associated with why women like men with a lot of followers and likes on these platforms. IMO, it is going to be something we need to get good at in the future.

Now moving forward.

I have found that of all the social media platforms, Instagram has been the toughest for me to have success on in regards to gaining followers as well as getting likes.

I see hot girls on the younger end as well as the occasional guy who have the kind of success I am aiming for which includes around 2k followers and 500 likes per pic. To be honest, I wonder what these people are doing!

Granted, a lot of these happen to be college kids, particularly in Greek Life, but I have met exceptions there.

What we don't want is spammy followers and a fake following.

Whether it is Facebook or Instagram, we don't want fake followers and spam accounts so I don't think some random software online is going to achieve the purpose. My goal would actually be to meet enough people in real life and have them engage on social media but that is seeming like it is tougher to do than usual.

So if I haven't posted about it already before, I want to know of some strategies from you guys.

I like this topic!

I started my own Instagram a year ago and got to 960 followers (and slept with a few of them already LOL). It's not 1k (yet) but close enough. Here is what I discovered.

I tried the strategy which consist in following plenty of random dudes in the hope they follow back. For me it was very inefficient, maybe 1 in 15 or 1 in 20 follow back, so I gave up, and focused on building content. But it seems that some other people have managed to make this strategy work.

It seems that new followers come essentially from the suggested on the Search page, or from the suggested for you on the main feed. The first will feature some of your most recent pictures which are similar to that person's recent likes. The second is usually taken from the followers of your followers. I also put hashtags on all my pics, but I'm not sure how much that contributed to my follower count.

So you get followers by (i) posting new pics, and (ii) through your followers.

It means you have to maintain a publishing pace. I do one pic a day - it's already hard to maintain this pace if you want to stick to quality. But if you can do two pics a day (evenly spaced during the day) it's better. More than that, you are probably spamming other people's account. I personally unfollow those who spam me in this way, and I'm surely not the only one.

After a while you have already posted all your good quality pictures. But since most people only ever see your most recent 9 pictures (the top of your profile), you can regularly re-post some of the older pictures and no-one will notice.

I noticed also there is some kind of momentum effect. You just gained a few followers, that makes it more likely to get more. My follower count didn't grow linearly, but by bursts of 20 - 30 new followers, sometimes 50, coming at once, followed by more quiet periods. Once you have the momentum, it is important to keep the pace of posting, and keep the quality.

Some principles I stick to:

* Have a consistent theme around your pictures, and stick to it
* You need reasonable quality pictures
* It is difficult to consistently predict which picture will be more successful. Sometimes a picture you liked less will have a surprisingly good response, and sometimes the opposite
* Pictures with vivid colors seems to perform better
* Pictures featuring people and faces will usually get higher attention
* Engage your followers. Like their pictures, comment on their pictures, engage them with Direct Messages. That will help them become loyal.

Great work Seppuku!

Do you have your Instagram account public?

Mines is private and that is definitely holding me back.

What kind of engagement do you get? You say you have 900 or so followers, generally how many likes per pic?

Do you know any of these people IRL?

That is what I am wondering, how many of these people with 1k+ followers, especially college kids, know the people that follow them IRL or have even met them before.

Hey Oh Pry,

To answer your question, I started Instagram from scratch. That means 0 initial followers. I didn't connect my instagram to my Facebook or Twitter. I didn't even upload my phone number, so that people cannot find my instagram from their phone contact list. I wanted to avoid having my boss or colleagues from work spying me on Insta. On the other hand, it is public. Slowly by slowly I eventually connected to a few people I know in real life. But that's maybe 20 or max 30, out of 960.

So it is possible to reach 1k by "organic growth" so to speak. In fact, some people do even much faster growth than that. Some professional photographers, for instance, who have really good quality content available in quantity, could reach 15k followers after a year. I've seen it. I suppose also that if you're a half decent girl ready to show a little ass here and there, the growth will be fast too :-)

But you're right, there are also some people who connect their insta to FB, and instantly they get their 500+ FB followers on their Insta. I also hear that some people "buy" an Insta account with readily available 10k+ followers... It's like an investment. LOL.

Using game and cold approach to build social media following, thoughts?

Postby Oh Pry » Thu Jun 21, 2018 11:10 pm

Been a while since I been online but as you guys may know, social media is a big thing among a lot of younger people. I am late to the game by not caring as much about it in college so it pains me when I see kids in their early twenties with over 1k followers and 500+ likes on their profile.

Now I know using software gimmicks and niche game are a big thing but I have had some success recently with cold approach and even women I have slept with in the past to adding them to Instagram. In all of 2017, I gained 18 new followers who were women that I cold approached and about 9 of them regularly like some of the pics I put up. Currently I am at around 600 or so followers and am starting to get around 150 to 200 likes per pic.

A big part of this growth has been through just getting involved more in groups and connecting with school alumni group as well as some of it through cold approach, I rarely add people I don't know and my account is private.

It seems like the kids I know with 1500+ followers genuinely have that many followers due to being popular in high school and college, got a long way to go myself and a tougher path ahead.

Anyways, what are your thoughts?

Seppuku,

Yeah that's pretty much how it works. Instagram is a strange beast I haven't tapped too much into yet.

Oh Pry,

Just one night when you go out, instead of getting numbers get Instagrams. It'll add up for sure as long as you're posting content relevant to the situation you met them in. Grabbing an instagram is easier than grabbing a number. As far as conversion, I'll test that tonight for you and report back what I find. Try it out!

What’s your point in building the following? Simply social proof in order to get laid more/by higher quality women?

If so, depending on how much you go out, you could get a lot of followers via cool approach alone. I tend to do a lot of approaching on the weekend and it would be much easier to get an inst follower than a number. I could see this working out really well for you if you post regularly and take great pics. If I was doing it I’d shoot for adding no less than 10 followers a week from cold approach, mainly because you can add all the girls who aren’t interested as well as ones that are.

I think this could be very effective. I’ve been debating doing something like this as I’ve basically never used social media alongside game. It also will open the door to sliding into some DMs of some insta model types if you have a big following and a cool insta life. This method is relatively unexplored in the pickup community but the power of social proof is real and I could see this being really effective but you’d obviously need a process around it.

I feel like with over a hundred likes and 6-700 your insta following is already way better than the average joe, have you already been leveraging this in your seductions? If so I’d love to hear more about it.

Oh Pry,

You have a pretty good idea. Initially I traded following with people at my work, then I asked some girls for Instagram.
It was slow as fuck. I got like 5 followers during the past 2 weeks, but that was the best I could do.
If there is a method for faster growth I'd like to hear as well.

Radeng!

My boy! Long time no see champ!!!

Now for your question.

I am finding that social media, especially Instagram, is huge among the younger crowd and definitely wins you points if done right. The ceiling for social media game done right is that you will have more than enough opportunities with hot girls than you can bargain for because they want to be a part of an awesome life or a life portrayed as awesome. As for my personal reason, I am sure you are all too familiar with my horrible college experience so this is one of the few things I am doing to try and redeem myself in my twenties.

The power of the social proof is very very real. When hot girls see other hot girls liking your stuff, they want to be a part of that experience and get curious about what is going on. I've started to see sprinkles of this in my life so I can only imagine how it is like for the guys who are doing it right.

Believe it or not, the 600 to 700 is actually on the lower end for most cool guys in the younger age range. I see a minimum of 1k followers along with awesome pics among the guys that get hot girls in the younger age range, of course they are young themselves (18-28 type of range) too so it works for them.

Since you will be starting new, I will say do it right. Do not be one of those guys who gets 10k followers through a bot program but then when you see the pics, there are only like 50 or so likes per pic, that just screams fake.

Re: Using game and cold approach to build social media following, thoughts?

Postby Oh Pry » Sat Jun 23, 2018 11:07 pm

As for my success with Instagram so far, I am actually starting to have some bits of success with it. I've tried to pass myself off as a "model photographer" and some of the women I've been with have been excited to have their pics taken. I have put up pics of some cute girls on my IG as a part of a collage so in one shot it is me with her and others it is them all by themselves. Girls love that sort of thing and I have had a few experiences recently where after smashing, I'll take a pic of them (in clothes obviously) and they are cool with it.

Social media presence does come up a lot among younger women I meet and I find that they get curious, account is private for me. Here are ways I have accumulated some followers:

1. Through events, especially ones thrown by my Alma Mater.

2. Cold approaching and asking them about social media, towards the end following them.

3. Linking Instagram to some dating apps I use.

Like others, I am also down for more suggestions but don't go with bots, gimmicks through software or attracting fake followers who don't even know you. I rarely accept invites from random accounts because I want my IG to feel more real as opposed to being those people with 10k followers who only get 100 likes max, that is embarrassing.

Guys here with over 1k Instagram followers, how did you do it?

Postby Toby » Tue Dec 11, 2018 1:14 pm

Since the past couple posts on Girlschase have been about Instagram.

I am currently sitting at around 300 Instagram followers and it has been through old high school classmates and college classmates following me, some are just random Snapchat model accounts as I made my account public.

While the belief is that you have to be a celebrity to get that many followers, I noticed more than a handful of people from my college days who are well above that number. The most common demographic are sorority girls who were in popular sororities, they have over 1k and some even over 2k followers. What gets me is that the engagement rate on their pics is insane, I am talking over 500 likes per photo although I will note they have quality pictures on there as well.

I have also noticed a handful of guys from my college days who are over that 1k number. Most of them were football players and former athletes, pretty easy to get to that number in that situation. The other account which stuck out to me is this one snobby Pakistani kid at my university who was in multiple organizations, the guy is even dating this sexy tall blue eyed brunette who I think is way out of his league and I cannot help but think part of it is because of Instagram game.

For those of you guys in here who have over 1k Instagram followers and a legitimate account to where you are getting 100s of likes per pic instead of like 50 or so, how did you do it?

1)Promote your dedicated hashtag on your other social profiles, on your website, and your email blast.
2)Get creative with your hashtags.
3)Watch topically relevant and trending hashtags.

I've found this on the Roosh V Fourm interesting and I thought we may have an intelligent discussion about it here. I liked post #19.
Learning seduction, doing seduction, and also contributing to the forum, all three at the same time? Nah, that's too much. Forum bankruptcy. I'd still appreciate if you could chime in on my two most burning questions here and here.

I'm a reasonable judge of my appearance, and I understand that my selfies at the mirror won't cause much excitement. I don't use any cosmetics - I'm not a blogger either, and it's a pretty expensive hobby. I cook rather mediocrely and eat that will prepare the husband, therefore to represent as the culinary blogger it would be unfair. So half a year ago, I started using one service! Now I have more than 10000 live followers(girls mostly). I recommend it!
