You need to show up daily. This can be difficult to present work every day, but hopefully, you can find it motivating and not overwhelming. If you don’t make post offend, users will forget you or unfollow an inactive account.
Step three: Hashtags
Learning how to use hashtags will be the only way you will be able to pick up new followers. Instagram has a limit of 30 hashtags that you can post at one time. (Any more than 30 looks spammy anyway.)
There are two ways you can add hashtags. You can add them in the text field with your photo you upload, or you can upload the photo first, then paste in the hashtags within the comments.
