With over 1 billion monthly users, an ultra-smart algorithm, and tons of clever and creative accounts, Instagram is a competitive place if you want to grow your account and boost your following. We have here a few reasons why your Instagram Page is not gaining enough followers.
1. You’re not engaging enough
What to do — Allocate 10–15 minutes a day for engagement. Like, comment and discover more accounts using hashtags/ locations/ interest and reply to all the comments that you receive.
2. You don’t have a strategy for Stories
What to do — Create a content strategy exclusively for Instagram Stories
3. You are inconsistent
What to do — Invest time in creating a content strategy, create, plan and schedule your posts and make sure you don’t miss posting for any reason.
4. You don’t update your profile
What to do — It’s simple — Set a reminder once every quarter to review and optimise your profile. If you’re a brand come up with some interesting variations for your bio.
5. You don’t have an Instagram end goal
What to do — Define your goal and create a strategy based on that goal. Your goals could range from educating your followers to inspiring them to share their stories (User Generated Content) and more.
