For ex: You open your account and you notice that someone likes you 10 pictures and put 2 to 5 comments than 70% chance that you discover his/her account and may be you follow them.
It’s not a follow for follow or likes for likes technique, it’s a genuine one in which you have to reach out your niche accounts and give them a chance to visit your profile. But be in limit because Instagram allows you to 150 likes in one hour. If you overdo then there is a chance that Instagram shadowban your account.
Make a Proper Hashtag Strategy
HashTag is the only way to reach out to the huge amount of people in a very short time. So try to make a good hashtag strategy.
List down the all possible hashtags those relevant to your niche (Use only those hashtag which are relevant to your niche) and try to make a good mix-up of all hashtags, use them in your post.
One thing you should keep in minds that don’t overuse one single hashtag because this can lead to shadowban your account. So, try to use one hashtag once or twice in a day.

Means everything you do on Instagram. So stories can be a good option to tell Instagram bots that who you are? and what you trying to do.
