Hence, every picture you will upload should be appealing and inviting, so that it can catch the attention of the viewers. To achieve this, the image has to be of high quality, and if you are a photographer, it is an added advantage to show your most excellent work in order to be successful. From time to time, you should also try to reveal photographs which you find quite significant such as your updates or behind-the-scene pictures.
Remember that it is more advisable to use a story-oriented picture when sharing about your life. Also, another truth is that images which require some time to think about to understand are usually neglected for the “beautiful” ones which are apparently amazing at first glance.
Hence, first and foremost, ensure that your picture is unique and exciting to gain more followers. Take note that you are fighting for relevance among close to 800 million users; so it is of an essence to stay outstanding rather than between the crowds.

However, if you someone with a hectic schedule, and it is tedious to get a higher quality of your feed, still, it is essential to upload at least once per week or else, Instagram algorithm will consider you as a less active user, and the more likely for you to generate less number of followers.
Apart from posting pictures consistently, the style of your photos must also be regular.
