Want to get more followers on Instagram?
Last year, I started a new Instagram account for my blog Short of Height.
Since it was a fashion blog and my main Instagram account back then wasn’t relevant, I decided to start fresh. I wanted to experiment to see if I could grow a fashion account and utilize it to brand the blog.
I started playing around and then realized the account was growing faster than my main account. It showed such progress that I had no choice but to focus on building the fashion account.
My little experiment showed so much untapped potential. I was able to quickly grow the account despite the fact that no one knew who I was since I don’t post photos of my face on the platform.
The results? To date, I have over 47,000 followers. These aren’t your ordinary bot followers – these are relevant and targeted people in my niche.
After testing over 30 different methods to grow the account, I learned a couple of neat tricks. I’m going to share these with you today so you can build your Instagram account and get more followers.
Let’s get started…
1. Connect to Facebook

The best part about connecting Instagram to Facebook is being able to follow your friends from Facebook who are on Instagram when you have just joined Instagram.
Since this is so convenient, most of us would choose to follow the friends who are already on Instagram.
From my perspective, this scenario means that my Facebook friends will automatically decide to follow me and therefore will be added on to my followers list on Instagram. It’s a quick and easy boost.
I didn’t do this until 30,000+ down the line. After connecting my account, I got over 300+ friends following me. It’s the best method for the least amount of work.
2. Share quality photos
If you want to remember one tip, THIS is it! The better quality your pictures are, the higher followers, likes, and comments you’ll get.
This is Instagram after all, and it is arguably the most visual-focused social media platform out there.
To improve the quality of your photos. Here are two tips:
- Good lighting: Always have quality lighting when snapping photos. This means it’s easier to shoot photos at daytime with plenty of light. Taking photos when lighting quality isn’t good or at night tends to have a negative effect on your photos, especially without fine tuning your camera settings. You’ll only end up with a grainy picture.
- Use a DSLR or mirrorless camera: One tip I picked up from other famous Instagram users is they use mirrorless or DSLR cameras. Using a quality camera will help enhance the quality of the image and assist you to stand out.
Posting quality photos will also put you in front of other pages. Some Instagram pages will publish your photo and tag you on the comment. This is called a shotuout allowing their Instagram followers to find you.
Here’s the thing, no one will notice you when you’re new on Instagram. To…
