Hey guys, it’s Morgan! I interviewed 6 people who have amassed large amounts of followers about how they did so, and over the next couple weeks I will be sharing them with you. 🙂 Today, I will be showing you @dreamlightslimes’s (aka. Lexi) marvelous answers! So without further ado, let’s get started 🙂
Q: What was a your main motivation for starting your account?
Lexi’s Answer: My main motive for starting my account was because I found slime and the slime community to generally be interesting! It always seemed to show up on my explore page and I thought it would be cool to make my own account and see where it would go!
Q: What did you do that helped you gain followers?
Lexi’s Answer: For me, I gained followers pretty quickly. I’m not sure exactly why or how, but I think it had to do with my interesting and intriguing videos. I made sure to think outside of the box and make other videos besides your generic “8oz slime container film”. Some examples of these are “How to make a slime cake!” And “Balloon popping slime videos!” I believe that made a big difference to what people thought of my account. I also remembered to have a consistent posting schedule, and to never miss a day in between! Be aware, gaining followers can take time, so always keep a positive attitude!
Q: What advice would you give to the reader about starting a successful page?
Lexi’s Answer: Advice I would give to start a successful page would really be to interact with your followers. It may seems silly, but it makes people’s days when they see a sweet message sent through DM to them, or even something so small as to liking or commenting on their recent post! Another strategy I would try would be to create unique content that overall makes you feel great. Don’t just copy what other people’s posts look like just to “fit in.” Most people would rather follow someone who has super cool and different content rather than someone’s who is the same as everyone else’s!
Q: What is your favorite part about having your own community on Instagram?
Lexi’s Answer: My favorite part about having my own community on Instagram is that every time I get on to my account, I see all these incredibly successful pages and it fills me with joy to know that we are all one big happy family, and we work together to create such a positive community!
Thank you for reading, and first of all, a big thank you to @dreamlightslimes for these amazingly written answers! Remember to go give her a follow and wish her a happy, late birthday because it was yesterday 🙂
