How I Grew My Instagram From 10,000 to 90,000 in a year

Hello Friends! Be sure to follow on Instagram for daily updates @carleybe . 
Read below for 2020 updates on my blog 🙌. 

2019 was such an epic year I cannot begin to express the gratitude I have going into 2020. So last year in December I told myself. I was done with my job. Done with my boss, and done working for someone else’s dream.

2019 was my year for growth, and not only do I work for myself now, but I quit my job and flipped my business in under 6 months. One of the biggest things I took from a friend was this “you are working so hard and killing yourself doing both, if you took the leap I think you’d make it happen because you are already”. I’ve never had such a lightbulb moment in my life. So let’s start with how I grew my Instagram.

So I grew, and I grew.... and I grew some more. Giveaway after giveaway week after week seriously it was insane to see the growth.I proabably did over 100 giveaways. A year later of doing at least one or two giveaways a month and I have grown by over 80,000 followers in just a year. My engagement is not what I would like it to be, but I am killin myself everyday to change that. What I’m really noticing is that If you want the engagement, if you want the brand deals... You have to have it all.

You have to show up on Instagram Every. Single. Day. You have to create YouTube content, Tik Tok is now the new vine and yes you should be on that too. Pinterest is the biggest traffic driver I’ve ever used and I spend as much time there as I do Instagram.
I grew from 20k views on Pinterest a month to over 10 million in 6 months. If you’re interested in that info let me know and I will create a post for that. Dm me on insta or leave a comment below.

So what does this mean? START SMALL. Do what you can with what you have. If you can’t create that much content grow one platform and then work on integrating those other platforms as you grow the one. But you need to take a hard look at your platform and what you are trying to do. If you are just trying to be anothr fashion or beauty blogger you have to think beyond that if you want to be successful on here.

Instagram is soooooooooo saturated you have to stand out, and in order to do that you HAVE to do more.Very few people get “seen” on Instagram so if you wanna be seen do more. This is also part of my motto for 2020 collaborate and do more. I want this to be the year of travel, creating content, and working with other creators. I hope you can stick around for the ride. I know it’s been a crazy year and I am so thankful for you all ❣️❣️❣️ For more tips and tricks every day check out my insta stories @carleybe
