In January 2016, I launched my first ever business ‘ Social Stylings’.
A few months of Instagram bliss later, they announced that they were going to introduce an algorithmic feed instead of the traditional chronological feed.
That is when everything started to change.
With that first Instagram account for my first business, I experimented over months to discover what worked, what didn’t, and how to best promote my Social Media business on Instagram.
Now with Social Stylings sitting at just over 7,500 followers, with a consistent stream of clients and e-book sales, I decided that it was time for me to launch my second business.
What I didn’t really prepare myself for was how much quicker and easier it would be to grow my second business’ Instagram account.
Currently, Marketer Mansion is sitting at 800 followers, and the account launched on 24th January. Talk about fast growth!
In this article, I want to share with you the things I did differently the second time around that I can attribute to this fast Instagram follower growth.
Because despite this ‘evil algorithm’ that everyone complains about, it actually was relatively easy to grow this Instagram account.
You just have to follow a few simple steps.
Almost like an ‘Instagram Follow Growth Recipe’.

30 minutes of Instagram Engagement Strategies per day. For example: liking and commenting on other people’s content in the Hashtags my ideal customers use. Responding to people’s stories.
Posting more than usual – 2x a day on most days, and sticking with a clear image theme so that my feed is visually attractive.

Making sure to keep my Following ratio underneath my total follower amount, so not following everyone I see.
Things that Made it Easier for Me to Grow My Account:
I haven’t changed to a business profile yet.
I have @social.stylings, so I do have a few people trickling over from there. Sometimes I will mention Marketer Mansion in a caption or Instagram Story.
I have an email list I can promote my new account to.
I put up follow threads in my free Facebook group Instagram Unfiltered.
Think about how you can incorporate these strategies into your own Instagram Marketing to boost your results.
