Full disclosure: Thug is my dog, and I’m probably a *tad* over obsessed with him. Sue me, he’s cute.
What He Needed
So Thug didn’t really need anything, but I decided he needed to be famous. Shrug.
How I Sought Out for Fame
For the past 8 months or so I’ve been testing Instagram growth strategies, and I’ve got to say I think I cracked the code. At the time of writing this, he’s gaining a solid 1,000+ new followers per week. Plus, they’re hugely engaged; they like and comment on his photos often.
Again, I couldn’t be more encouraged by the growth rate. Plus, it feels really cool when companies like Barkbox, Natural Dog Company, and LazzyBones send my dog free stuff. Oh also, he recently got a sock deal. #thugsocks is now a real thing.
