Love them or hate them, there’s no doubt that the Kardashian-Jenner clan is one of the most influential social media dynasties to ever exist. If you’re looking to become Instagram famous, there’s no one better to learn from than the social media queens themselves. Here’s a list of everything we’ve learned about becoming Instagram famous from the Kardashians.

12. Interact with your followers

Your followers want to know that you see them and you appreciate them—so show them that! Kendall often posts fan edits of her photos on her profile and her story. Fans and followers will be more likely to engage with your content if they know you like it when they do.

11. Paid ads

The Kardashian-Jenners work with various brands who pay the sisters to advertise certain products on their Instagram accounts. These brands include Hairfinity, Flat Tummy Co., and Olay. Not only will you get paid for doing this, you’ll also gain more exposure, making you even more Instagram famous.

10. Offer something to your audience

Think about what you have to offer to your audience that will make them want to follow you. What can you teach them? What can you show them? What can you give to them? Offering them something that no one else can will generate a much bigger following. The Kardashians offer behind-the-scenes peeks into the lives of some of the most famous celebs, first looks at new products, and a small slice of how the rich and famous live.

9. Know your niche

Knowing your niche can help you figure out your target audience and cater your content toward them. Kylie’s niche is cosmetics, Khloé’s is fitness, Kendall’s is fashion, and Kourtney’s is mummy-blogging. Users aren’t just on Instagram to see posts from the people they already follow—they’re also looking for new influencers to follow in their niche!

8. Post consistently

Don’t let your followers forget about you! Post at least once a day to ensure engagement and exposure. Posting doesn’t just mean photos, either; utilise Instagram’s story feature to update your followers on your day.

7. Actively try to increase your follower count

Don’t get comfortable with the amount of followers you have; there are always more accounts out there that could be following you! Even Instagram famous accounts with thousands of followers still employ tactics to get more followers. Kim K curates her grid so that it has a specific theme of muted tones and nude hues—that’s an easy way to increase your follower count. Try these tips to get more Insta followers.

6. Friendly competition

It’s easy to be intimidated by your competition. But instead of fighting against them, try befriending them! This can lead to collaborations and extra exposure for your account. The Kardashians often collaborate with each other in their respective cosmetics brands and clothing lines; they also collaborate with various designers, models, and celebs. You could even say Kim snagged the ultimate collab when she married Kanye!

5. Give your audience something to talk about

Giving your audience something interesting, shocking, or exciting to talk about is a great way to gain followers and exposure through word-of-mouth. When Khloé revealed her pregnancy on Instagram in December, the announcement photo gained tons of traction, reeling in over 8 million likes. Be smart, though! Followers aren’t going to love a tacky, obvious, or irresponsible publicity stunt.

4. Keep your followers intrigued

Rumours of Kylie’s pregnancy flew around for nearly a year, with not one of the Kardashian-Jenners confirming or denying the speculations. Kylie finally confirmed everyone’s suspicions when she announced that she had given birth to her baby girl, Stormi. This massive intrigue and air of mystery kept people interested and ensured tons of exposure for Kylie’s Instagram. Luckily, you don’t have to be pregnant to replicate this tactic; just keep your followers hooked on your personal story, whatever that may be.

3. Play to your strengths

Think about why people follow you. Is it to see the awesome places you travel to? To hear about the latest fashion trends before anyone else? Or maybe it’s just because they love to hate your big butt and duck face selfies (looking at you, Kim). Whatever it is, post content that you know your followers want to see. This is super important if you’re trying to be Instagram famous; users can easily get bored and lose interest in your content.

2. Get involved with good causes

They say that any publicity is good publicity. We say that positive publicity is better publicity. Getting involved in good causes like charity work or social movements is a great way to build ethos with Instagram users, get more exposure, and end up with a higher follower count—plus, it’s just a decent thing to do! The Kardashians often use this tactic, raising awareness about various political, social, and humanitarian issues.

1. Build your empire

The Kardashians have well and truly created an empire of different business ventures: apps, mobile games, cosmetics, fragrances, clothing lines—the list goes on and on. Use your follower base to venture outside the realm of Instagram. Advertise your new venture to your followers; in turn, this will lead to a wider following.

The Kardashians have built a massive social media following using those tricks, and you can too. As Kim would say, not bad for girls with no talent.
