Instagram is where most celebrities share behind-the-scenes of their shoots, their daily lives and even interact with their fans on various matters. Now with Facebook auditing the quality and authenticity of likes and followers, Instagram is set to implement the same measures in no time.

  1. You can make money out of it

When you have more followers and when your posts are liked by a large number of people, you attract advertisers. Advertisers want their products and services to reach as many people as it is possible.

So, once you have a great number of followers and these followers fall under the demographics of the advertiser, you might as well get an offer to advertise products. This is one sure shot way of being able to make money. There are already a huge number of instagrammers who are being able to make lots of money through advertising different products.

  1. For a business account, you can get more clients

The reason why people make a business account on Instagram is to expand their business. How does the business get expanded? A business is expanded on any social media platform only when there are more people viewing your services and products. Having more followers would mean more people getting to know about your business.

  1. You can increase the number of subscribers on your YouTube channel

Pretty much like adding your web link to your profile, you can also add your YouTube link. Every time you release a new video, update it on your Instagram as well. When your followers notice your updated YouTube link, they would follow the link and you’d get more views. Similarly, as more people view your video, people who like the content would also subscribe to your YouTube channel. All of this brings you a lot of profit.

4.    You could inspire change

Having a massive following (being famous) gives you the power to bring about change. Nowadays, hashtags started by celebrities have a way of going viral on social media and are more often than not picked up by mainstream media outlets reaching an even wider audience
