How do you gain a large number of followers on Instagram?

 

Here are some strategies to gain more followers on your Instagram.

 

1. Decide a theme for your photos

Yes, creating a theme can gain the attraction of a lot of users. As you get few followers, other Instagram starts noticing you naturally and they may check out your profile. At that time, if you’ve got an interesting theme for your photos, it attracts people. Depending on the type of audience you’re looking for create photos based on that theme and stick to it as much as possible. For instance, you want an audience who would be interested in your writing or book, then put photos related to books, words, quotes, etc.
