Let’s start the year 2017 with openness and stop talking to the bush. Today I put the cards on the table and tell you my hottest tips that really help! I have realized that honesty is the quality you value most about me, and I smile when I hear all the time just say “be active and post nice pictures” because that’s just not true.
Becoming an Instagram star , what does that mean? Am I “fame” if my followers are high enough or only when I work with big companies like Chloéand Tommy Hilfiger ? Let’s not fool ourselves: with some of them, the big number and then the real interest of the people came first. There are, in my opinion, many ways to get known on social media platforms, and today I want to show you some “good” (with real followers), but also some “bad” (with spurious) ways, right down to the insider tip for a steep Instagram career.
1. Buy followers
How could it be any different? As I’ve already said in this post , that makes a lot more people than you might think. If you are good at it, regularly dazuschummelt Likes and on top of that has great photos that can in the long run , unfortunately, lead to success yet. Most people do not even dare you dizziness, and if you start with 30k instead of 300, you have an easier game. Not only with other bloggers and potential cooperation partners; even the girl next door will press the “Follow button” faster.
This method is, in my opinion, but shit-e, because I am a proponent of honesty and believe me, if you are not very clever and on top of that sells you well, it brings in the end not much …
2. Buy a whole account
It is not uncommon for large accounts to be resold privately. After all, the followers are then real, the name of a profile can be changed quickly and all existing photos can be easily deleted.
Here, however, there is the problem that the community is probably not really interested in you and “dead” subscribers can also be saved. Also, I always wonder what these are for people selling their big, hard-earned accounts. Probably they did something about it themselves, I would definitely watch out or strongly advise against it.
3. Drive the number up with hacks
I really tried everything until I found the right path for me. There are countless tricks, such as “Follow4Follow” or even apps in which one can “exchange” quasi follower (see post link at 1.). If you just want to increase the number of your subscriptions, you can just follow big accounts and get away again . Since, for example, there is a lot of traffic at Bibis Beauty Palace and anyone is always checking their subscribers, you will get followers when you are at the top of the list. That happens when you follow Bibi. Does that make us say 30-40 really big accounts – does it all the time – and you’ll see, it actually helps.
The catch with this trick, however, is that these people usually follow you “blindly” and are not really interested in your feed. In my experience, active followers are not, which is why I would not overdo it
4. A good concept, stamina and a lot of luck
Today food, tomorrow fitness, the weekend travel and in between every now and then a little fashion? Difficult. People (rather unconsciously) want to see a clear line when they come across a profile. Of course you can occasionally bring photos from other areas, but in my opinion, it is important to orientate yourself to a division.
Not only in terms of content. Are you the sweet guy or are you edgy or even artistic? Are you more concerned with quality and photography, or do you score with selfies and closeness? A good concept is more important than you think, because your followers can only identify themselves if you offer them a personality . “A little bit of everything” is not a personality.
5. Like there is no tomorrow!
First, search for hashtags that match your target audience . For me, of course, these are German girls / women, which is why I’ve been thinking over and over again, which hashtags are probably like to be used. Preferably German words, like “Liebe” or maybe a nearby city, in my case “München”. At first, I went there and liked the photos I liked. Over time, I’ve noticed that of course more likes and followers come back as I spread more hearts. To be honest, it works best if you just like EVERYTHING. By that I do not mean fast 10 photos, but rather a few hundred (maybe you get from each 15th a “follow”) … This is tedious and unfortunately not very honest, but it applies:The more tracks you leave with your account, the more traffic you get back . No one has said that there is a way to quickly get real and active followers – Buy sometimes except.
6. The best way: Inspo pages share your pictures
There are obviously Instagramer who quickly get a large increase because their photos churning “American style” from sites like, “hair styles sand”, “fashifeen” and the rest of them, were divided. So in a very short time several MILLIONS! Instagram users are aware of you and you can grow very, very fast. Actually, you just have to tag these pages on your photos to get the chance to get a repost.
Unfortunately the Inspo Accounts are really fussy and it does not do any good to be posted 2-3 times. For a while, I really tried everything to gain a foothold there and every now and then I was greeted by really big pages. That has brought me relatively little growth! I think you have to be really regular and shared by all , otherwise it will not do much in the long run. But if you’re lucky and have the Inspo Gene, you can end up like caro_e and you’ll get 700k subscribers from one day to the next – man, that’s why I like a lot of pictures
7. Cheat what the stuff holds
Sounds bad, but unfortunately it’s hard reality. Of course, all the photos look like they were taken 5 minutes ago and uploaded as snapped. Really? Be a little bit smarter! A picture does not always have to be “live”, as long as it suits the occasion and the picture description. On a day when I feel really good, I produce several photos, sometimes in different outfits. But they are not posted immediately, but first run through several editing apps, or Photoshop s.PC.
On the phone I prefer to use FaceTune (5.99 € but worth every penny ), as there are really many useful features for pure skin, details and of course slim legs. Also, I recommend Snapseed (0 €) andLightroom (0 €), but you have to deal with the programs in any case – learning by doing.
Incidentally, I know some instagramers (and you too!) That halve their weight on photos, and depending on the pose, you also seem to be more powerful / slimmer. We all show each other only on the best side, I do not admit that I do not admit to nonsense …
8. Be aware: others will not fall out of the sky
At first, I always got the impression that others get subscribers much faster without them doing anything about it. I thought. By now I’ve talked to a lot of bloggers and I know that it’s not enough to be pretty or to share great content. Without activity it does not work ! Surely you are telling yourself that the great instagramers are just “better” than you, that they just have more luck. I can reassure you, because that is really the case in very few cases. Most have fought hard for their success and invested many, many hours (or often money).
Even now that I have over 85,000 followers, I grow very slowly if I do not have at least a few hours a dayI am active on Instagram. I dare to say that my pictures are not bad and I’m probably not ugly. So if there are not thousands of subscribers coming on my own (and all my Blogger friends), why would they do that to so many others?
For all these tips, without exception, if your feed (your pictures) is shit, then you have bad cards on Instagram long term.
IMPORTANT: For celebrities or YouTubers that’s different, they finally have real fans and get a picture of their toilet bowl 100 000 Likes, but we are the normal mortals
I hope I have not bored you now and I’m really looking forward to your reactions!
