I uploaded an IGTV post yesterday that shares probably the biggest truth bomb I have when it comes to growing your Instagram account. So many people ask “how do I get more followers on Instagram?” But they’re often not truly thinking about what they bring to their audience. One exercise that I have all of my clients do when they get their Instagram workshop is to take a cold, hard look at their account and answer this question: “Would I follow this account?” Instagram is saturated now. It’s not enough to post some pics or selfies or whatever and expect the followers to flock to you. If you want people to engage with your account you have to give them real value! Think about your favorite Instagram accounts. What makes them great? What makes you go and type in their username when you haven’t seen a post for a few days? I guarantee it’s content! You love what they give you. Whether it’s images, video, recipes, health tips, cat memes, jokes, eye candy or career inspiration... something resonates! Be THAT to YOUR audience. Catch my IGTV if you missed it and comment with your favorite Instagram account and why it’s your fave - I’m curious to put my theory to the test. ❤️ @thetravelbootcamp #thetravelbootcamp #Namibia #Sossusvlei #NamibDesert

I can tell you Lauren one way is to be a celebrity or up and coming one ☝️ two examples are Our friend Emily Weir who 3 months ago had 1800 followers but now that she is a up and coming star on HOME AND AWAY on tv after 6 weeks on the show she now had 13.5 thousand followers 😮 another brilliant example is JANNELLE ELIANA everyone on YouTube is talking about her. Her first video a month ago got 14million views and gained her 1.8 million followers. Her instagram account 5 weeks ago was 30k and now is at 335k check her out. She just lives in a van with a pet snake. In 5 weeks she now has the potential to be making about 10k a month. Cheers Peter

Great shot! I think I would follow me... if I were not me... I think. I am kind of reinventing myself as I am doing less travel now and more farm/garden and restoration. I have a little critter on the way coming in February so that will also be slowing down the travel.

Love that truth bomb Lauren. I know it's content that makes me continually return to accounts or stop & engage with posts. 💗

I just started your eCourse with Trey, and it’s been really helpful for me. I’ve been on a bit of a soul searching journey for awhile now because I’ve always defined who I was by my job, and since I left that job in 2017 I’ve really struggled understanding who I am as a person. Even though your course and exercises are about Instagram, they’ve been really helpful for me to navigate my own thoughts to rediscover my passions, which have since been lost. So thank you!! 💗
