I was on the X Factor in 2013. You’ve probably never heard of me because I didn’t win the competition. But, I did get a yes from Simon Cowell himself, Demi Lovato, and the love of my life, Kelly Rowland. This was enough encouragement for me to keep the ball rolling. I had no idea what to do after the show, so I decided to flex my muscles online, as so many artists before me have successfully done. I applied and was accepted to a Masters of Science program at the University of Southern California in Digital Social Media, and I am a semester away from graduation. I learned everything I could about the internet in class, as well as on my own. My studies led me to finding a huge following on instagram from quirky videos that I upload on a weekly basis. My profile has led me to an original feature on AOL.com (which was then picked up by the Huffington Post), a co-sign from Stevie Wonder, a feature singing in a BET original to be released in 2015, and a social media company helping other brands build their following on both Instagram and Facebook. The most common question that I’ve received within the last year since my Instagram started “poppin” is, “Karim, how do I get more Instagram followers?” What constantly shocks me is that the same people asking these questions usually have wack and blurry pictures, a biography that has more typos than a 3rd grader, and no reason to gain followers other than “I want to be famous in Montgomery County.” -__- . If you are looking for a larger following on Instagram, no matter what your current ‘gram situation is, listen up! You won’t be getting this free information anywhere else. If you don’t have $300-$500 a month to hire out a company like mine, then these free tips will help you out.
If you’ve clicked on this article, more than likely you’re curious about how so many different people are able to gain a huge amount of followers on Instagram. Well, you’re in luck! I’m going to fill you in on the secret for free. My name is Karim. I’m a social media marketer, singer, and weirdo that performs in my shower to 144,000 people directly on Instagram every week. I know that sounds crazy, but it’s a lot more PG -13 than you think.
