Now, I am going to show you how you can get an infinite amount of Instagram followers all for $1.80. However, this $1.80 holds no monetary value for this strategy. You are in fact spending, nothing. It is entirely free. The $1.80 means something else. Read on and I will explain.
You may or may not be familiar with the entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk. He is the CEO of Vaynermedia. He is the one that developed this strategy, and this strategy is what I am going to share with you today. It will open up the floodgates to allow you to gain an infinite amount of Instagram followers.
The amount of growth you gain is relative to the amount of work you put in. In simple terms, the more time you spend on this strategy, the more followers you will get.
It all starts at the hashtag level. Hashtags are the backbone of Instagram. They are the eyes of Instagram and allow users to find your content, find your account and ultimately follow you. Hashtags are now your new best friend. You are going to be spending a lot of time together!
At this point, hopefully you know what niche you are in. But for those that are still not sure, your niche determines the type of content you publish, the type of account you have. If your account is about coffee, you are in the coffee niche. If you post about your life and your passions, you are in the personal brand niche. Find your niche.
This is where hashtags come in. You are going to pick 10 hashtags that are relevant to your account. For example, if your account is about coffee, you could pick the following hashtags:
Once you have your 10 hashtags, you are going to click onto each one and leave a like and a comment on the top 9 posts.
When you are leaving a comment, do not say “Great post” or “love this”. This looks like spam and has no value whatsoever. Your comments need to be tailored to that post and have meaning to them. Ask the user a question. Compliment them on a certain part of the photo or video. Leave a comment that provides value and shows the user that you genuinely liked their post.
After you have gone through all 10 hashtags, you will have left 90 likes and 90 comments on a total of 90 posts. If you add those totals up, it leads to 180. Do you see the correlation between the strategy and $1.80 yet? You leave your 2 cents on a total of 90 posts costing you a figurative $1.80.
The reason this strategy works is because you are not only showing Instagram that you engage well with the platform and its users, but you are exposing yourself to hundreds and 1000s of other users each time you engage with a piece of content. Let’s crunch some numbers shall we?
If 1000 people see your username on each of the posts you engaged with, that equals a total of 90,000 people visibly seeing your username across all 90 posts. Let’s say 1% of all the people that saw your username click through to your profile and view it, that equals a total of 900 people. And if 1% of those people decide to follow you, that equals 9 new followers.
On average, this whole process takes me about 5-10 minutes to do and I personally get an average of 9 new followers each time I do this. If I repeated this process for one hour total throughout my day, as and when I have time, I could gain (on average) 90 new followers per day. After one month, that adds up to 2,700 new followers. After one year, that adds up to 32,400 new followers.
This is something ridiculously simple yet highly effective. I urge you to go onto Instagram and do this right now. Keep doing it for a minimum of 2-3 times per day, every day, and watch how your account changes.
