With every iteration and tweak to the algorithm and the introduction of new features, businesses had to adapt by implementing new strategies to maintain steady growth. But what defines Instagram growth? For many, it’s the number of followers you have.

In today’s episode, powerhouse entrepreneur and brand strategist Dean Aguilar is back. Together, Sharran and Dean will share the Instagram growth strategies they applied in their brands.
