Instagram account is mainly used to increase business reach; you can easily promote your business and increase your followers. Several ways are there using which you can increase real followers on Instagram. When you create an Instagram account for yourself, make sure to use genuine information to avoid getting blocked in the future.
If you can make your brand popular or have a good number of followers, you can also get your Instagram verified which is a very talked-about feature of Instagram. Moreover, if you sense some sort of inappropriate behavior by anyone, you can simply block them on Instagram to avoid any further contact.
