    3 months ago I started with this account. It's now at 8k followers, which sucks in my opinion. The only really good thing is the Engagement-rate from about 17-20%. Not a single account in my niche has a percentage like this. Now what I'm wondering about.. when the people like the content so much, why dont I grow more faster? When I'm following I gain around 1k new followers in a few days, but when I stop botting, rest for some days and do unfollowing, I'm barely getting any followers..

    Can somebody enlighten me? Is engagement worth more then growth? Could it be the little number of followers? Does this account turn out the be a bomb, with the numbers in engagement, all though the growth sucks? Do I have to fear an immense drop in engagement, so that It's only high atm?

    I'm just a little curious because i thought good content (Seen in EG-rate) = better growth, but in my case this isn't real.

    It could be a niche thing? What niche are you in?
    Your growth is good. Have you changed the image styles, color, posting frequency or times?
    Maybe the usual ... change the users you're following.
    Do you keep getting the same engagement rates even when you don't bot?

    What are the offers that your running? Not your execution.

    My 11k account has 20% engagement rate, but had slow growth rate. What I did now was post videos and include "Follow @myaccount for more kangoroo pics" or whatever, just make sure to mention your account & a reason to follow (got to over 20k+ views and many followers)
