    Hi, Due to all the Instagram craze, we have been trying to grow our Instagram followers for some time now but have not made alot of progress.  Organic growth is almost impossible and we have tried the following:  Using Hash Tags (which did not result into too many followers, but alot of likes mostly from non-local people, local hash tags fared worse), Following the followers of other businesses (this was good, but eventually Instagram limits how many you can follow, then we used a program to unfollow some and follow again, not something you can do alot).  We tried other software out there like Crowd Fire and etc, but they got banned by Instagram.  I was wondering, what tool or program can I use to grow our followers that has proven to work for you.  Or what strategies. Thank you.

    Without knowing your brand and the types of people you expect to follow you here are some things I see people doing
    • ambassadors - offering freebies or discounts to people if they will promote your brand. Expect high turnover but with high visibility while they're on board.
    • offline promotion
    • cross-media - post your instagram links onto twitter
    But ask yourself, critically, if the content you post warrants attention. Just because you want it, work hard for it, is it the kind of thing your potential customers are actually interested in?

    @As Spartan14 suggests, never stick with only one thing. You should be visible on different platforms. Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Then you could always link to your Instagram from other platforms.

    Best way to get more followers in my opinion is to do a contest/giveaway.
    You basically just create an ad for what it is that you are giving me away (e.g. coupon for 10% off, a couple of free products or whatever you think is most suitable for your niche) and in order to get in, all people have to do is like your site, share the post and give you their email address (for later email-marketing purposes if you want to).
    You can dm me if you want for more information.
