    I am very new to all of this, so my apologies if it's a dumb question. I've tried searching, and haven't found any specific advice.

    I started using FollowLiker to try to increase my followers (travel photography niche). I targeted the followers of some of top accounts in my niche (travel magazines, primarily), and other photographers in my niche.

    I'm at about 2500 Followers, but what I'm noticing is that the engagement from my followers seems to drop off radically. I was traveling so didn't run FollowerLiker the last few days, and my most recent posts have far fewer likes than posts from the days I was getting new followers (~350 Likes on the other days, and like 75 these last couple of days). To me that implies that my new followers aren't really engaged IG users – they like a post or two right after they follow me, then ignore me from then on.

    My goal is to be consistently getting 1k or so Likes per post (I figure 100k or so followers), even after I stop doing daily follow-liking. I'm wondering if what I'm experiencing is normal, and I need to just stick with it. Or if it implies I'm choosing the wrong things to follow based on. Would it be worth hiring an expert to help me get the right followers? I really don't just want a big follower number, I want actual daily engagement.

    Thanks so much!

    Maybe it's due with the crashing of Instagram for some users since monday.
