Do you often find yourself on other Instagram accounts jealous of how many subscribers they have? You know, those accounts with 10k, 25k, 100k, and even the beautiful 1M?
I’ve been successful getting two accounts to 10k and 28k before I finally said goodbye to Instagram, so I feel I’m qualified to help ya out.
Below you’ll find a tutorial video walking you through 7 simple steps to follow to grow your Instagram following and I’ve even linked to an awesome course by Alex Tooby who is an Instagram expert.
If you’re also wondering now why I left Instagram after building two accounts successfully, scroll down below the video for the explanation.
Let’s get started.

Why I Quit Instagram
To be honest, I haven’t deleted my accounts but I’ve stopped posting regularly. Once in awhile I log in but all of my time is instead focused on building Pinterest.
The reason I quit Instagram was because it produced very little website traffic for my blog and that resulted in very few product sales.
I was successful at using it to get email subscribers however, but the time trade off made better sense to focus on Pinterest instead to grow quicker.
The reason Pinterest beats Instagram for website traffic is that Instagram doesn’t let you link in your posts, only in your profile biography.
Pinterest, however, lets you connect every pin you post to a blog article, email landing page, or product page.
In fact, most Pinterest users are on the platform to shop! This means better conversion rates for people buying your products.
I spent 2.5 years trying to rank on Google and trying to drive traffic from my Instagram account that had nearly 30,000 followers.
Yet very little traffic resulted. See this graph.
Finally, in February of 2017, I decided to give Pinterest a try.
I was blown away by what happened next. In just a few short months my traffic went from 2,000 visitors to over 25,000+ visitors!
Here is the monthly breakdown:
- June 2017 Traffic – 25,576 visitors / 39,393 pageviews
- May 2017 Traffic – 14,251 visitors / 23,785 pageviews
- April 2017 Traffic – 8,396 visitors / 14,193 pageviews
- March 2017 Traffic – 5,465 visitors / 10,267 pageviews
- February 2017 Traffic – 3,564 visitors / 6,273 pageviews
- January 2017 Traffic – 2,147 visitors / 4,091 pageviews
As you can see, from October 2014 to January 2017 things were going super slow. Trying to drive traffic from Google, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook was only producing 2,000 monthly visitors.
Then I joined Pinterest and started experimenting and BOOM, traffic increased 1,200% in just a few months.
