I’m going to show you how to get Instagram followers fast using the lightning method. The lightning method has four simple steps and you can use it to gain thousands of real followers on Instagram for free in a very short space of time. So if you want to learn how to grow on Instagram and get free, Instagram followers quickly then are sure to watch the video until the end to learn how to do it. Let’S get started, don’t forget to subscribe for more videos like this and be sure to turn on notifications and, if you’re a new subscriber to my channel, then let me know by leaving a comment below the video saying I subscribed and I’ll reply to each and every one of you, let’s dive straight in so first off. Let me show you a brand new Instagram account, which I created just for this video, so I created this example account for the fashion industry and you can see the account has zero followers and zero likes on the post. So I’m going to apply the techniques from the lightning method live on this account, so you can see the real-time results, so I just added a few posts here to make it look like a real account. Otherwise, no one will want to follow it and when you apply the lightning method to your own account, I recommend you have at least nine posts with an author, bio, and profile picture so that your account looks real. So, let’s see if we can get 20 followers on this brand new account by the end of the video. So let’s get started with the step. One follows the boss list so go to the search bar on Instagram and search for a bassist.
That’S b, o s s l! I s t, then click on that account and follow that account then go into the following list on that account, and it has the biggest Instagram accounts with the most followers. So follow the accounts in that list, one by one, and don’t follow more than 30 in one go and the reason is that Instagram has a limit on the number of people you can follow and unfollow per hour and also per day. So stick with around 30. Here and as you can see within one minute, we’ve already got four followers here. So let’s wait for about an hour and then we’re gonna unfollow. All of these people we just followed so I’m gonna pause the video and come back in one hour. So it’s been about an hour so go to the boss list.
The account here goes to the following list and then you want to unfollow all the people we followed and you can see. We’Ve already got seven followers since the start of the video. So, as you can see, you can use step one to gain Instagram followers very quickly. However, they’ve not targeted followers, so in the next two steps of the lightning method, we’re going to look at how to get Instagram followers that are already interested in the content. You’Re sharing on your profile. So let’s go on to step two. So now I’m going to show you how to get followers on Instagram, which are targeted to your specific niche, and these are the best type of followers you can get and they’re the ones that are going to be most engaged. With your content and like and comment on your posts – and i can also show you how to make money from Instagram in later videos – and you don’t need tens of thousands of followers to do it either. So if you want me to make a video on that, then leave a comment below saying: make the video and subscribe and turn on notifications. So you don’t miss it. So let’s go to the search bar and search for pages that are similar to yours. In this case, I’m looking for pages related to the fashion industry, so in the search box, I’m going to type fashion, and then I’m going to click on the accounts tab here.
So this gives us the top accounts in our niche and I’m going to go to the big accounts that are influencers in this niche. So I’m going to go to this one right here and, as you can see, 16.4 million followers so go to the most recent post here and you want to click on the people that liked this post. And then you want to just follow around 30 of the people on this list. So let’s do that right now, so these are active people that are interested in our niche, so they’re likely to follow us back and like and comment on our posts as well. So what you can do here is, you can wait about one to two days and you can just unfollow the people that didn’t follow you back from this list. Now again, as I mentioned earlier, there is a limit on your number of accounts. You can follow and unfollow on Instagram per hour and per day so make sure you’re not following and unfollowing more than 30 to 40 accounts per hour and no more than 200 to 300 per day in total, so use this method carefully. So I’m going to report back later on on the results of this. So far we have 13 followers so far, so now, let’s move on to step three of the lightning method, so go back to the search bar and search for our niche topic here.
In this case, I’m going to search for fashion, and then I’m going to click on the tags. Tab right here so choose one of the hashtags here and open its page. So I’m going to choose this one right here, then I’m going to click on the recent tab to see all the recent posts using the hashtag and I’m going to scroll through here and find a post. I like it so I like this post right here. I’m going to click this one and then I’m going to follow this person and then I’m going to leave a comment below saying: hey. I really like your content. I post similar stuff on my account to feel free to check it out and follow me if you like my content and I’m going to post that. So you want to repeat that for about five or ten posts in the recent tab – and you should get a couple of followers from that and as you can see, we just gained another follower here. So, let’s move on to step four ask for shout outs from relevant influencers so go to the Instagram search and click. The accounts. Tab then search your topic in my case, I’m going to search for fashion here so go through this list and just find pages with a similar audience size to yours, and then, once you find someone with a similar audience size to yours, you want to click message Here – and you want to send a message like this, so you want to just say something like hi, I really love your Instagram feed and your post on the topic.
Whatever the topic is, I have a similar page to yours in which I post about page descriptions. So you can fill in the blank there. I was wondering if you might be interested in giving us a shout out in exchange for a shout out from us. Since we target the same type of audience, it will benefit both of us. So that’s the process and obviously, you want to follow them and like their post before you reach out to them.
If they give you a shout out, you can get new followers this way so reach out to about five to ten influencers on your topic with a similar audience size to you and ask them for a shout out, so we’ve reached the end of the lightning method. So, as you can see right here, we’ve reached our goal of getting 20 followers using the lightning method, and I just want to point out that as well as getting followers here, we also got likes on our posts as well, which is awesome, so you can use The lightning method two to three times a day, so you can potentially get up to 50 to 100 followers a day using this method, but just be careful that you’re not following and unfollowing more than 200 to 300 people a day in total.
Otherwise, your account can get flagged, and also don’t be following and unfollowing more than 30 to 40 accounts per hour as well. So if you use a lightning method every day, you can easily get hundreds and then thousands of followers within a very short space of time, and you want to use a mixture of the steps in the lighting method to look as natural as possible to the Instagram Algorithm so, for example, a normal person will log in to their Instagram account at random times a day. They’Ll follow different accounts, they’ll, like photos, send messages, etc, and all of this is done in a very random way. There’S no pattern, basically when they do this stuff. So you want to replicate this as much as possible, so that completes this video on how to increase followers on Instagram. So, as you can see using the lightning method, you can gain Instagram followers very quickly in a short space of time.
