Bluntly, You have a long hill to climb given your experience, age, your other job and the way you phrase this question.
On topics you either sell sex, a hobby or activity, a political message or movement, an attractive idea; or really a combination of these staples. Lifestyle being the typical catchall.
Followers come with your exposure and marketing base. The information is overwhelming because there just as many overwhelming ways to meet people online as there are in real life.
Hashtags help build your relevance to the algorithm and related topics.
Legit, you don’t sound ready to produce your own content with your end goals in mind. You need to pair with a producer or have your agencies sell you to producers to get content with you featured in it. Much of the idea of Instagram fame and fortune is achieved through lots of hard work and luck and most importantly vertical integration of the pipeline into a single person. —
Technology allows an induvial to be their own agency, producer, copywriter, and more. The way you talk about conventional modeling and agencies leads me to believe you might not have the drive or intuition to take advantage of this trend despite you recognizing that trend.
You can project manage your way down that path by paying freelancers and getting consultants but its a shitshow of a market to find the right people. In my experience agencies are filled with inexperienced marketing majors that are part of a large cannibalistic circle jerk that mostly miss the target for many of their clients.
What I need from you to give you better advice is short anecdotes about how you live your life to sell your own lifestyle. Without an attitude or a lifestyle attached to your Instagram handle you are just another vacant visage for a producer to use.
Instagram for models and acting is not necessarily a content platform as it is fanbase management and data. The outside content drives Instagram growth instead of Instagram content driving its own growth.
