Get more followers

And yes, they have to be real people, not bots or fake followers. Because engagement matters a lot in Instagram and influencers with large follower count but poor engagement get found out real fast.

What’s your niche
So what’s your niche? You can’t be a generalist you talks about anything and everything. You must focus on a particular niche and be an authority within that niche.
So, for example, if you are an avid traveler and visit exotic locations around the world, focus on travel-related brands and post exclusively on that. Don’t do a review of smartphones or laptops on your Instagram page. You get the point, don’t you?
Learn how to take amazing photographs
Instagram is after all a visual platform or a photo-sharing site, which means you have to take amazing photographs. Take a course in photography and learn to take photographs as a professional.

Smartphones are fine too, just make sure to buy a high quality smartphone such as an iPhone X or Samsung Galaxy S9 that comes with a top-rated camera.
Master the art of using hashtags on Instagram. Use hashtags that are popular and related to your brand. People will find your posts from hashtags on this social network, so use hashtags well. Also use common hashtags such as ‘#instagood,’ ‘#indiantravelogue’, ‘#instadaily,’ etc. to incease your chances of getting found. Next, once you gain a sufficient number of followers, use your own special hashtags, with which you are uniquely identified with.
Post regularly and at the right time every day, when your posts are most likely to be viewed.
