How to Get (Real!) Followers on Social Media in 2019

One of the most popular topics in social media marketing is how to get more followers. And not just any followers --- real followers, no bots. Brands want to grow their followers authentically by adding real people who love the brand and are looking to engage.

This is no small task on social media in 2019!

We've dug into the research on all the latest follower trends and how new brands are growing from zero to 10,000 followers and how established brands are going from 10,000, beyond. Today’s most popular brands and influencers have given us a roadmap for how to grow your social media following. We’re talking about real tactics to get real followers — no bots, no shady shortcuts. We’ll give you fresh ideas that you can try today so that you can boost your follower count on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more.
