The first thing first is to create a catchy bio of yourself.

Second start creating content for the channel.
Back in 2015 – 16 Instagram was all about pictures but later on they introduced videos (1min length max), after that IGTV (for long length videos)
Insta provides you the facility to upload media in multiple formats.
You can upload images of Food l, restaurant, cafe, street food, drinks, cocktails, mocktails or anything you want. Or you can create short recipe videos and upload them on IGTV
The main agenda is to create dynamic content for the user.
Third As mentioned your main focus should be on how to create eye catchy content so that a person will spend more and more time on your profile.
Years back it was way to simpler to get a good user base on IG but not with the increasing competition it has become very difficult.
A survey said that there are more than 100K+ existing food niche profiles on Instagram, and this number is growing rapidly. The Images taken in High resolution and are more vibrant than others will only help you to grow.
Fourth Connect with people in the same category as you are.
Theses will be the people who’ll help you to grow your profile.
Exchange Shootouts with them, encourage them to engage with your content.
Like and comment on the posts relating to your content.
Try to leave comments on celebrity post and by far the most important be regular.
Fifth Use # tags or hashtags on every post of yours.
The primary use of hashtags is that it categorizes your images or video, now if anyone in the world searches for that tag.
There is a probability that they’ll find your post under that tag.
For example, if I use the Tag #foodlovers on any of my images. Then all the images with the same tag can be seen together
The images with hashtags will draw a huge amount of audience to your profile.
It is your content that develops a random profile visitor into a follower. The content on your page should be this dynamic that it makes a visitor follow you.
The number of food bloggers on Instagram has increased tremendously in the previous few years, you should make sure that your profile is getting visitors from all over the web.
I would personally suggest you run ads on Facebook and Instagram. If your content is more videos centric than YouTube will be another great alternative for you.
