I created Casper’s Instagram account in September 2016, just a couple of days after we had decided that Casper was going to join our family. I’ve always had a passion for photography … so a new kitty … and pictures to show to friends and family … Uhmm, that is exactly what Instagram is for !
The start of a journey
First of all, let us go back in time. I posted Casper’s first photograph on August 28th, 2016. And by the end of June 2017, I had only just over a thousand followers.
My focus was more on the cat photography itself than on the Instagram account data.
But after 10 months of posting cat photographs without any particular strategy, I thought it was time to study this popular social media App more in detail. After finding some famous cats and dogs with large Instagram accounts, I wanted to understand the dynamics of a thriving Instagram account.
Casper’s account was perfect to do this because the world of Instagram cat accounts is huge and truly a wonderful experience. There are so many beautiful kitties and great accounts out there.
I wanted to figure out everything you can possibly know about Instagram. So after a lot of research, reading and trying certain best practices I began to notice a high rate of improvement on my account.
Yes, we saw a glimpse of a successful and fast growing account.
On August 17th 2017 (the day I posted this page on our website), after two months of implementing some particular changes in my strategy, the number of followers reached 5000, an increase of more than 400 % in followers.
That same day I have also set myself a double goal. I will take the challenge to reach the following amounts of followers on Casper’s account:
15.000 followers by the end of 2017 (which I reached in Dec 2017)
30.000 by the end of 2018 (which will be hard with the algorithm change)
During this challenge, I will share all of the information, strategies and actions I use to reach my goal. I will implement only allowed strategies (nothing black hat, bots…) and I will make frequent updates to you on the results and my accomplishments.
I know that a lot of people are interested in growing their Instagram account and they would love to know how I am achieving my results. Almost every pet owner with an Instagram account is interested in making his pet more popular.
That is why I decided to have this information available for free, for everyone who is interested, I will:
show you my methods and workflow to create photographs of Casper
explain my growth strategy and workflow of posting on Instagram
tell you about the tools I use.
Instagram is a fantastic social media platform to share your pet’s story and your pet’s photographs. If you are looking for specific advice to help grow your account, you are in the right place.
