It depends on if it is a secured or unsecured card.   Knowing the credit card itself would allow those that use the same card to provide feedback.  As a general rule, using the online account management page, look for the link for "increase credit line" it could also be under the tools section of the account.   Normally, I'd wait 6 months of active account usage before making the request.   Don't be surprised if their standards for the increase are higher than their initial approval.   Something you had on your account (like a collection) when you got your initial card could be a reason for non approval of an increase.   Normally, they'll ask for updated income information.  Also, many companies will do a hard pull on your credit report for the review so make sure everything is good.   They don't normally make increases based entirely on your activity on that card.
