    You shared some great tips with us. People need to understand that growing a following is not just about numbers, but it’s mainly about how engaged are your followers.

    I checked that Earth Love, and saying that they have 17% engagement is ridiculous. With around 3300 followers they average around 120 likes and some comments. There is one image with 2000 likes, but it is only one spike that disrupts engagement calculator.

    There’s a lot to learn about Instagram and not all advice can be applied to every account. Some businesses have offices and employees and some only have one person.

    I disagree with throwing contents to increase the number of followers, since people will follow your account only for freebies.

    WOW thanks for this super comprehensive post and all the detail! IG is a tricky beast, LOL, and these tips are so helpful. I always respond to those bot comments, and try to be a little cheeky in the process, heehee!

    Lots of helpful tips here. It’s so important to give value and not just being selling all the time. I find the follow/unfollow game that many accounts do just to bait you into following them is very inauthentic.

    IG is very important and I have been slow in the uptake. Thank you so much for the great post – very timely for me!

  15. Alina Vincent 5 years ago

    Great strategies. I’ve never used Highlights before… looking forward to trying it out.

  16. Susan Berland 5 years ago

    Excellent ideas. I’ve been using Instagram for engagement primarily and have not even considered changing to a business account. A lot to think about here.

  17. Alyssa Dawson 5 years ago

    These are great tips! I need to be better about my scrolling and find myself being active with engagement instead of being wasteful with my time.

    I find it so hard to grow on Instagram lately. It’s like for each follow you gain, you lose 5, no matter how professional and high quality your content is, no matter how much you engage.

  19. These are wonderful tips! I really have to up my Instagram game…

    As I started my business using Instagram it was not as good. But then I found out how IG stories can be very useful.

    HUMANIZING YOUR BRAND IS THE MOST MOST MOST MOST MOST important thing ever!!! If you don’t then no one will be able to relate to you and/or your brand and then well, you’re not going to make any sales because you won’t have a connection!
