- Follow similar accounts who have similar interests and content as you do. Build and interact with this community as much and as often as you can!
- Be sure to use hashtags on all of your posts! The maximum number of hashtags you can have on a post is 30, try to stick to 20 or less. Be very specific on your hashtags, using only hashtags that have 500k or less posts.
