Also, you need to do only 10-20 minutes of work daily. Once you’ve got 1000 real and active followers, it’s not harder to reach 10k in a few months and millions in a year. Below is the snapshot of my account, I grew to 1000 followers in around two weeks.
Once you have 10k followers, Instagram will make it easier for you to get people to your website via Stories with the swipe up to link feature. Swipe up is the only way to get a direct link from your Instagram to your other web properties. And, it’s available in STORIES, if you have 10k followers.
