While making an Instagram account you need to give all of your authentic information.
You have to provide the exact and correct information so that people can recognize you fast.
First of all, you have to pick a niche.
A niche can be anything that relates to your business.

Similarly, if you are a water bottle manufacturer then your niche should be that.
A niche needs to be predefined.
After deciding on the niche now you have to sign up.
Signing up for an Instagram account is pretty simple you need to give your email or phone number to make an account.
2. Complete your profile:
After making an account now you have to fill up all the details like your full name, email, phone number, and your website if you already have one.
You also need to fill up the bio manually.
Your bio should be short enough that fit that character limits but large enough to express the full details.
Use hashtags in your bio so that people can easily find you while searching for that particular hashtags.
3. Analyze your posts:
After completing the profile now you have to post the content.
Content should be engaging and of high quality.
Analyze your previous content, which one is performing better then make a strategy to post the relevant and same content.
The more you post the content the more you’ll get engagement.
4. Use a video editing tool:
People say you just need to create a video and share it on social channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc. That’s it.
But my friend’s video creation and sharing are more than that.
Sometimes you need to edit the video manually to get more engagement and views.
You need to use video editing software or apps to get a better experience while posting.
Videos are the best way to share thoughts and ideas as compared to texts and images.
Video content can help you to reach the maximum audience.
People love to watch videos.
If your content is informative or entertaining then you most probably receive more engagement.
Instagram now comes up with IGTV also called Instagram TV. Now you can post longer videos.
So your video should be like a pro as you post on YouTube.
If you’re creating short videos then you can also share them in the story area of Instagram.

6. Check what your competitors are doing:
If you want to grow to be like your idol then you have to follow your idol.
You have to analyze your competitors. What your competitors are doing? and what can you do to become an Instagram pro?
Suppose, if you are an actor and you want to grow your Instagram account as an actor then you have to follow your ideal actors.
7. Promote your hashtags:
If you are a business or company then you can also cross-promote your hashtags.
You can create your hashtags and ask people to share the content with your hashtags.
Suppose you have a cafe and you want to grow your business account then you can ask your customers when they leave after billing to post on Instagram with your dedicated hashtags.
You can ask for a review, and in return, you can provide 10% or 12% discounts.
8. The caption should be storytelling:
View this post on Instagram
It feels like online marketing changes every day. New growth hacks emerge, and old tactics fade off in the distance. Our daily tactics shift because consumer behaviors shift. People get tired of the same-old same-old. They start ignoring the same ad they’ve seen multiple times. They start ignoring the same old e-book lead magnet that they’ve seen for nearly a decade. Thankfully, there are actually still a few constants. There are some underlying principles that will continue to stick around despite how often the tactics change. The future of online marketing will be a combination of the most successful techniques of the past mixed with the growing need to personalize everything. What do you think?
As we know a picture says thousands of words but without a caption, it doesn’t work.
You have to write a descriptive caption so that you can get more engagement on your Instagram post.
You can see the most celebrities in your niche in how they write the captions.

9. Develop your style:
While posting the content you have to build your own Instagram style.
Your every post should contain a definite theme color that relates to your brand so that people can easily recognize you while you post something on Instagram.
Many brands use their brand color in their Instagram posts so that people can recognize them and more and more people can follow them.
10. Use the location tag in every post:
Location tagging is the most important way of getting more and more local engagement to your Instagram post.
If you want to get more real followers and want to become a pro Instagrammer then you have to localize your every Instagram post so that local people can find you and can recognize you.
The location tag helps you to get more followers on your Instagram profile.
11. Engage with your audience:
Engaging is the most important thing that you need to consider while using Instagram.
Engagement by any means you can communicate with your audience in the comment section.
You can post something that intends that you’re talking to them.
Well if you have a large number of followers then you have to interact with your audience with the help of stories.
It will give them a personal feel. Always try to reply to the comments if it’s not possible then you can communicate with them through Instagram feed or stories.
12. Adding value to people’s life:
You have to make people’s lives better. You have to provide value to other people’s lives.
Once you do that you don’t need to shout out for your business you will automatically get business.
To add value you have to provide free stuff.
Stuff may be anything that relates to your business, even free knowledge is also free and more valuable stuff.
If you provide them with free knowledge then most probably people will love you and respect you.
So after concluding the session, I can say that if you want to become a pro on Instagram then you have to make sure about all the points that I had listed above.
Instagram no doubt is the most engaging and powerful platform for marketing but you have to have the right knowledge so that you can reach the right people.
Your post and your content will create a lot of difference.
Always keep an eye on your competitors what they are doing and how they are doing. If still, you still have questions then feel free to ask.
