5 Easy Tricks to Get More Instagram Followers

If you are a warm-blooded human being, then you spend an average of 257 minutes a month on Instagram—this according to new results from social media analytics tracking company Piqora. And if you’re a warm-blooded follower of fashion, then that number is probably more in the upper hundreds-1,000 range—even 30 minutes a day on Instagram will put you at 1,000 total minutes each month. (And if we’re being honest, 30 minutes isn’t really that much, is it?)

Having said that, considering how much time we all spend on the popular social media platform, we all know how important followers are. Across the board, the trend seems to be that the more followers you have, the more valuable you are—at least on Instagram. To give you a little perspective, Kim Kardashian has 18.5 million followers—yours truly “only” has around 600. The room for growth is huge.

A study released near the end of 2013 discovered eight interesting new trends about how people use and engage with Instagram. From that study, we’ve devised five ways to boost your followers with relatively easy, small changes to your Instagramming habits.
