It’s easy for celebrities to grow huge number of followers to their social media accounts. But how do regular folks like you and me do it?

Here are five ideas to try.

Five Steps to Grow Your Social Media Numbers

1. Use high-quality images.

Take the time to crop and enhance your photos and create the highest-quality images possible. Consider using stock photos if you don’t have great ones on hand.

2. Capitalize on video.

Relatively simple videos can create a great impact.

3. Post Consistently.

Don’t go for days or weeks without posting. Consider having someone else post for you if you’ll be away.

4. Make it Fun.

Unless you own a funeral home, have a little fun with the whole thing.

5. Interact with your Followers.

Respond to their comments and move the conversation forward.
