Learning ways to get traffic to my page

I was talking to a friend today and we were talking about creating traffic to the blog. As I don´t have any clue about how to do this I was very happy to recieve some great advice from him. He told me to get an Instagram account and start posting on Instagram. In his case it had started to generate traffic to his blog alomst instantly. So as a first step of increasing the traffic to my blog I will get an Instagram account 🙂
