Make Your Account Public
If you keep your Instagram account private, the only people who get to see your content are your personal friends list. As a business account, you want to have as many people possible viewing your page. This increase in activity will correlate to the amount of money your business will make through marketing on Instagram.
By allowing your account to be public you are opening up your Instagram page to all users to view. This provides a much better chance to acquire new followers, since users will be able to view your profile without following you. With this first glance they will be able to look over your content and then decide if they want to continue following you.
Interact with Other Accounts
In order to bring some more traffic through to your page, it is important to interact with other people’s pages. These can be regular users, celebrities, like for like/follow for follow pages, or other business pages. Liking pictures can increase your chances of bringing attention to your page, but posting comments to other accounts are much more personal and results in more positive feedback.
By engaging in the comments section of other pages, as well as your own, you can interact with people and follow other users. If you engage with other users and then follow them, they are more likely to follow you back.
