Though some people may think that there is nothing difficult in gaining followers and getting likes, in reality even these actions that seem to be quite simple at first glance require a special approach. I don't say that Instagram promotion is as difficult as quantum physics or the black hole theory, but it still requires some knowledge and understanding.
That's why instead of googling answers to the question of how to become popular on Instagram fast, I just advise you to study attentively some core ideas of promotion that I've prepared for you in this blog post.
How to become popular on Instagram: Ready! Steady! Go!
The range of key aspects that are crucial for making clear before starting your promo campaign includes the definition of the target audience. In other words, you should understand who are those people who can be potentially interested in what you are posting and, consequently, those people who can bring you money either directly or indirectly.
And at this very moment, it doesn't matter whether you are running a private blog or a business account.
Let me clarify my idea by using some real examples.
- If you are selling clothes for babies, who can be potentially interested in your goods? Of course, first of all, young mommies.
- If you are a manager of a boy band's account, your main TA will be their fans (in this case, teenagers, primarily, girls).
- If you are a travel blogger, your account can be interesting for a wider audience. The above-mentioned young mommies, teenagers and many-many other people can find it interesting to read about your trips and look through your pics. Nevertheless, when your account will gain its more or less stable audience, it will be possible to identify at least the most general groups of Instagrammers who follow your account and stay active.

In your case, it will be enough for you just to add the nicknames of the IG accounts that you'd like to establish interaction with.
When you will notice that your audience is beginning to grow you can pick a variant to interact only with those users who actively put likes and leave comments on the posts. This option will limit the TA of your promo campaign only to those users who show a high level of activity on the pages of your rivals or just on similar accounts (if you prefer not to call them rivals).
When you will exceed a mark of at least several thousands of followers and will continue your amazing journey to the top, you may add more restrictions for the target groups of your campaigns.
For example, using filters you can skip users according to their gender, language, type of their accounts that they have.
All the settings applied will be used as a base for all your promotions (based on followers, locations, hashtags and targets). You can try out various combinations of campaigns and settings in order to define the most resultful ones and to clearly understand your TA.

To cut the long story short, let me point out the main idea once again: the smaller audience you have, the wider your settings should be.
Nevertheless, the more followers you get, the more attentive you should be in your promotions. Analyze the results of your previous promos, see what settings ensure the highest conversion rates and apply them to your future campaigns.
