Five Common Instagram Mistakes

Stop making these five mistakes on Instagram, they may be hurting your growth!

Stop making these five mistakes on Instagram, they may be hurting your growth!

1) Poor Engagement

You NEED to engage with your audience! The algorithm loves to see you and your followers engaged with each other. Likes are NOT enough anymore. You need to save posts, comment on them, share them on your story

2) Inconsistency

Active users are important! You should be regularly posting content and stories. If you disappear for weeks at a time, your profile will stop being suggested easily.

3) Buying Followers

Do I even have to explain this one? The number of followers you have doesn't matter if those followers aren't engaging with your posts.

4) Wrong Content

Invest time in your content. Research your target audience. What do they want to see? Is your content entertaining? Informative? Valuable? Original? It should at least be one of those four.

5) Spam Behaviour

#f4f, #l4l, those do not work anymore! In fact, Instagram may flag it as spam behaviour.  Over liking photos, following hundreds of accounts but not engaging with them and tagging dozens of people in your photo can do damage to your account based on the algorithm.
