    Hello reader, in this article I have put together a very interesting topic, a theme that many of you may be interested in. How to get 100 thousand followers on Instagram for no money, or very cheap ways.

    If you are a social media influencer or a business that has to have an Instagram page, today I will help you reach that 100k mark.

    Of course, you will still have to keep your followers engaged, continue posting and involving yourself in the Instagram page you are trying to grow.

    In this article I will go over paid services and organic tips to grow your Instagram audience for free. So without further ado, let’s dive in.

      Method 1 - Organic tips to grow your Instagram audience for free

      #1 Relevant Content

      The first and most important tip I can give you is to have proper content. What do I mean by that? Create good structured, relevant content. It is that simple. Good content will always prosper. Good videos will always be recommended more by the algorithm. 

      Look at the bigger dogs in the market you are in and copy their style a little, steal the good things. Make shorter videos that are more impactful. The attention span of people decreased over the years. Kids are scrolling senselessly now. You have to implement something that attracts the human eye.

      Your pictures that you post should have the best quality possible, some captions, in case your audience isn’t attracted by the image, maybe the writing will pop more in their eyes.

      Also note that your content should be targeting the market whom you are trying to sell to. Let me explain. If you are trying to sell diapers, you don’t make your posts for babies, you make posts for parents. The parents buy the diapers.

      In addition, this may seem a little too obvious, but for many it is not. Make content for humans. I can’t stress this enough. You are communicating to other people, just like you, make your content so they want to engage with it. They want to like your post, leave a comment, share it with their peers.

      #2 Post regularly

      Easy to say, harder to do. It is a must to post oftenly. The more you post, the more chances your post goes viral and you get more attention on your page. For businesses, they use advertising, for social media, you are the ad. The more you promote your page, the better the results, right?

      I recommend 3-4 posts per day, good ones though. If you can’t momentarily post 3-4 quality posts a day, don’t. 

      It is better to post valuable posts that people want to comment on. The comments are the decision maker if your content gets shown in other people’s feed or not. 

      This rate, organically, should get you 100k followers on Instagram for free in the matter of a few months. 

      Consistency is the key in growing everything of value. Just be persistent with your ideas, with your business, with your creations, and you will succeed.

      Note that it is also important to post at the right times. This means, depending on the country you target the market from, you have some intervals of hours that engage more than others. Why? Because people are more active after work, or in the evening. They use their phones more because they have more time, common sense, right? 

      This should allow your 3-4 posts a day rate to compound on one another and maximize the results of your challenge to reach 100k followers on Instagram.

      #3 Use hashtags and trends

      Relevant hashtags and trends usage are another important part of achieving 100k followers on Instagram for free. As I have said, RELEVANT hashtags, not every word you can think of. Just hashtags that relate to your domain of content.

      Take a popular trend and implement it in your content. Use the popularity of the trend to maximize the engagement on your Instagram page. If a trend is suitable for the kind of content you make, there are completely zero reasons why you should not copy paste the trend with your kind of product or whatever you are presenting, in it.

      This will get recommended more by Instagram’s algorithm ultimately getting more clicks, or views. This should help you faster your way through that 100k mark on Instagram, although you still have to put in the work to grow your audience organically.

      #4 Partner up

      Contact other influencers from the same niche you are in and tell them to partner up. You make two posts, one for you, one for him. In order to make this worth you have to aim for someone with the same following base as you, give or take. You can’t go for the big dogs and ask them to make teams. They give more than gain. Try and come up with interesting ideas so that they are more willing to do it.

      A cross over might be one idea you should try. Look at the top ranking players in your market.

      #5 Follow/unfollow Method

      You may have heard of the follow and unfollow method. It is basic what it says it is. You follow people that have the same interests as you have. They either follow similar pages as you do, or they follow similar pages in the industry you are in. For example if you are making fitness content and a person follows someone that makes gym videos, it is very likely that they will stay engaged to your page once they see it. How do they see it? You follow them. You can unfollow them later, and they might unfollow you too, but they are much more likely to stay a valuable follower.

      Same as the follow and unfollow method, you can like and comment on your competitors’ posts. This way, people that open up the comment section, might see your comment, relate to it, and visit your page. That could be another valuable follower that could help you reach your goal of 100 thousand followers on Instagram.

      Method 2 - Use free Instagram followers services

      Of course there are some places where you can get free Instagram followers in order to reach the 100k mark you so much desire. I will cover just a few of them, more of the top ones, the ones that actually work properly.

      Note that these followers may not be Instagram followers that engage that well or at all. It is always better to increase the number of people that follow you organically, since they are more likely to stay and are more reliable followers overall.

      #1 Skillshare

      You can take free courses on how to get to that 100 thousand followers on Instagram. Skillshare provides a beginner level course where they teach you about branding and packaging your content in a more creative way.

      They also help you with statistics that may be very interesting depending on the niche you are in. These statistics are very valuable for high end businesses, since even a little detail makes a difference on that level, but they are useful in the smaller weight classes as well.

      All you have to do in order to access Skillshare’s free course that allows you to achieve 100k followers on Instagram very quickly is to open up a browser and type in the search bar ‘’Skillshare free followers for Instagram’’.
