So like it’s totally acceptable to not have a typical 9-5 job and just pursue a career on Instagram right?
How? I hear you say. However there are people who make serious money off of their Instagram fame, using thousands of followers to launch their own brand.
Once you reach a certain amount of followers, brand ambassadors and independant companies may pay you to advertise their products. This is just the beginning. Before you know it, you could be sent free samples of new products, and get invited to exclusive premieres and launches. Not too shabby hey! Getting paid to be completely narcissistic and take constructed selfies all day sounds like an absolute dream to me. #lifegoals
I only have 4K followers myself, which I guess is a decent amount. And often people ask how I’ve gained so many followers.. Here are my top tips:
1. Get active
Quite literally. You need to be as active as you possibly can on Instagram. Once you aren’t engaged you will lose followers faster than you can say bye Bitch 🖐🏻
2. Be that girl
Sometimes in life you have to lower your standards to get where you need to be. I’m not encouraging you to upload naked pictures or leak a sex tape (although I heard that works out successfully for some individuals!?). No, you need to be that sufficiently annoying girl that likes everyone’s pictures and leaves nicey nice comments. It’s the only way to get noticed and gain. Think of the gains!!!
3. Tag team
Tagging events you go to, using relevant hashtags & being tagged in other people’s pictures can also help. Especially if you go to a fairly big event, or you are with someone else who has a huge following on Instagram. This will also gain more followers.
4. High maintenance
Once you’ve gained like your first 1000 followers, it becomes second nature. You must must must upkeep and maintain your profile and activity. It’s no good posting once a month – you’ll be forgotten. If you can’t manage to post because of real life commitments, you just stay active and do what you can to keep the followers you do gain.
Get gramming! Beware Instagram can be addictive. Remember it isn’t real life kids. ✌🏻️ (Follow me: @versaceblonde)
