I got an Instagram account with 30k followers, it’s a personal travel photography page.
My engagement has been quiet bad and was wondering if anyone got some tips.
Here some insights.
As you can see, the first one is a better performing post, but most engagement is coming from hashtag… I barely reach anyone on my home feed.
The second two is from an average performing post.
Basically no matter how good the photo is ( even if its performing great on hashtags) my home reach is usually between 2800-4000 ( on some rare photos 5000-8000).
I am using Engagement Groups ( high quality, no tracking links from Telegram, and also a pod in Instagram itself, but without links, just messages and then the group will engage after looking for my latest post.) I use them to push the post in the first hour or so for ranking at hashtags.
I grew my account in the beginning via follow/unfollow till about 2k, then fanpage method till about 15k, + natural growth via shoutouts of my photos, hashtags etc. and some targetet giveaways for travel around 10k followers.
The max follows I ever get via insights on a post is like 8 followers.
Are these normal stats for an account with 30k or is this really bad and I am doing something wrong? Can I still save it and improve?
Thanks for any advice
