You spend a bunch of time thinking of great pictures to take and stories to share. Coming up with witty captions and editing your photos perfectly. Excited to get all sorts of social media exposure for your brand, you make your first few posts and...


Nothing happens... each post gets a handful of likes, you can't get over a few followers, and it seems that maybe Instagram isn't all that it is cracked up to be.

Check out these 20 modern Instagram growth tactics to find out how to make your account stand out among the masses and reach your target audience.

    Awesome @JustinCruz thanks for sharing these tips!

    Instagram is the 2nd important organic traffic for my side project. I'm just curious how do you see the public like count being erase in the future? What would be the challenge?

      It's a good thing for the community in my opinion. Likes aren't favored by Instagram's algorithm that heavily but in peoples mind's and in the culture it's a thing to chase after. If you produce good content then Instagram knows that, no matter the number of likes.
