3. Post consistently.
The more engaged you are with your followers and other people, the more fun you’ll have on Instagram, and ultimately the more you’ll be able to grow your own account. You might even find something new that you love! Search through the hashtags you’re using and engage with others who are using the same tags. It’s a great way to meet new people in your niche too!

4. Create a theme.
This isn’t mandatory but if you’re trying to grow a business, brand, blog, or just your Instagram account, you might want to create a running theme on your Instagram feed. For instance, some of the most successful Instagrammers take photos that all feature a similar color or a similar object in them. Featuring a pink rose in all of your photos is just one example of how to create a running theme but also have different images so they’re not all the same.
