Q1. How can one create a personal brand and grow on Instagram?

One first should decide their niche. For Example, in my case, my Instagram niche is entrepreneurship and motivation. My priority is entrepreneurship, but sometimes I do also post motivational content and Digital Marketing because that’s also a pivotal part of going on the same journey.

You can also add personalized images for personal branding on Instagram. I don’t post such images, but it depends on you. According to your niche, you can create personified images with some quotes, or you can do that along with your brand.

Q2. How can we generate quality leads through the same?

To answer this question, let’s take an example of my niche.

So, my niche is Digital Marketing and Entrepreneurship. I am creating valuable content on this niche and people are following me for that content.

To get quality leads, I will create a lead magnet which could be a free E-book related to Digital Marketing. Then, I will create a lead form in which, the interested people will sign-up. These will be qualified and generic leads because they all are related to my niche.

The key is to find a niche, post consistently, and people will automatically connect to you. You can also organize a contest, and do free giveaways through which you will grab the audience, followers and quality leads.

I hope I gave you the best answers as I could. Good Luck!


It was a great experience talking to these leading experts. In essence, to grow a personal brand on Instagram, one should select a niche first.

Then one can post authentic, valuable content to grow their audience size through consistent posts, IG stories, IG TV and Paid Ads.

You can engage with your onlookers by asking them questions, suggestions, and free giveaways. A hero story will help in creating an emotional bond with your followers.

After getting a good reach, you can create a lead magnet and an opt-in form to collect the email IDs, which you can use to sell high ticket products through email marketing.
