Secrets to Gain 1000+ Followers on Five Social Media Platforms

The following guide on growing a social media audience examines the steps involved in getting your first thousand fans for each of the top 5 social networks: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Instagram.

With each social network you must first completely fill out your profile information in order to maximize your following.


Since Facebook is the most popular social search engine, it's the easiest to build a quick following. As with all social networks, the key to building a vibrant following is to engage with as many other people as possible.

One of the reasons for Facebook's success is the ease of the media tools it offers for sharing videos and photos. Each thread becomes part of a bigger story that can be characterized as personalized media.

Here are the steps to building a Facebook following:

    1. Use Invite Option

    2. Direct followers from various networks and email

    3. Optimize your site with multiple Facebook buttons (to improve likes)

    4. Expand your following with Facebook advertising

    5. Use a "like" call-to-action

    6. Develop relationships with friends of friends through groups

The main factor that distinguishes Twitter from other social networks is its character limitation, which makes it an ideal platform for short memorable tweets.

Four different buttons are offered by Twitter to stay connected with followers: Share a link, Follow, Hashtag and Mention. The more direct way to develop followers is with the Follow button.

Here are the steps to quickly attract a following on Twitter:

    1. Share a link to your profile page through various networks and email

    2. Include follow links and widgets in your online content

    3. Add a follow button to your blog or article series

    4. Find like-minded individuals or entities to follow

    5. Use relevant Hashtag in tweets

    6. Join a chat like Chat Salad and interact with individuals who share similar interests

Follow these steps to gain 1000+ followers on Pinterest:

  1. Share a link to your profile page through various networks and email

  2. Make a Pinterest button available on your website and blogs

  3. Use various buttons to maximize your reach

  4. Pay attention to other boards used by competitors

  5. Comment on popular pins and find new followers who agree


Unlike the more common playful social networks, LinkedIn has a more serious business tone since it is used as a business and career networking tool. It's possible to become connected with high ranking officials through LinkedIn by knowing friends of friends. Special attention should be placed on completing your profile information, which gives you more chances of being found. Adding photos can help make the profile more attractive.

Follow these tips to optimize your LinkedIn profile:

  1. Share a link to your profile page through various networks and email

  2. Add LinkedIn buttons to your web pages

  3. Encourage coworkers to join LinkedIn and complete a profile

  4. Send and accept original connection requests

  5. Participate in LinkedIn Groups

  6. Use Follow Ads to target specific people connected with your industry


Sharing videos and photos through mobile internet has made Instagram a popular social network in recent years. It's a way of making visual content easy to share across multiple social networks. Instagram was acquired by Facebook in 2012.

The most successful Instagram users tend to have a consistent theme and stay on a regular schedule and above all, avoid being boring. The choice of relevant hashtags kept to a minimum is also a factor, along with making sure photos are well shot and enhanced.

These tips will help you gain 1000+ followers on Instagram:

  1. Connect your Instagram account with Facebook

  2. Develop a commenting strategy

  3. Make yourself visible by delivering "likes" to many posts

  4. Figure out the best hashtags that are influencing your industry

  5. Include a hashtagged feed of Instagram posts on relevant web pages

  6. Tag and mention people that are relevant to your content
