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 2019 (which will be hard with the algorithm change)
