So easy, a dog can do it.
Is there anything more exhilarating than a good Instagram feed? No. The answer is no. If your dreams include soaring past 100k likes for a picture of burnt toast, then listen up.
How to become Famous on Instagram
Be the child of someone famous
Instagram is where the children of famous people really shine. Kylie Jenner, all of The Baldwins, Lional Ritchie's offspring. It really pays to be paid. Unfortunately there's not much you can do about this once you're already born but hang in there! You'll think of something.
Kylie Jenner has 18.9 million instagram followers which almost twice the amount of people who live in Portugal. And you know how that happened? Because genetics.
Be the pet of someone famous
Normie Jenner, Meredith Grey, Buddy Lovato is there any celebrity pet that doesn't have an Instagram account? The answer to that is 'probably'. Again, there's not much you can do about not being born an animal but no one said we had all the answers.
I mean it. Just took a picture of a pen? Well then you better hashtag that sucka to make sure it gets the attention it truly deserves.
Learn the art of the 'flat lay'
A flat lay is when you lay down some of your possessions on a neutral surface and take a picture so that people can know what you own. They're good because you don't want to have to announce that you own a camera, a leather jacket, a book, a pen, and a bottle of water. A flatlay just tells people that.
Black and White
Harry Styles has an interesting approach to Instagram. He only uploads black and white pictures to his millions of followers. He might have 10 million followers because he is a great photographer with a keen instinct for picture taking and building around an aesthetic, or he might just be in One Direction. You decide.
Be a health nut enthusiast
This one is as upsetting as it is true. It's really really popular to be in good physical shape. As I type those words, my donut powder stained fingertips are trembling.

Become Vine Famous
Vine Famous people get an insane amount of traction on Instagram. Take King Bach for example. He killed the vine game, demolished the instaworld, landed himself in some music videos and tv spots, and now he's a real life famous person.
Step your selfie game up, silly
Selfies are the bread and butter of Instagram. You're not getting anywhere if you can't find your light and get your angles on point. If a monkey knows its good side then so do you.
