    I've been wondering lately. What should be an acceptable engagement %? As in likes to follower count.
    Right now im sitting at around 10-15% is that good, or should it be higher?

    I am not spamming pictures, mostly just 1-2 a day with high quality.

    From 5% to 10% it's a good ratio, more than 10% I consider it very good.

    You guys are really crushing it if you ask me. If you are getting 10% or more and you are over 50k followers thats amazing. In my experience I see a direct correlation in lower % with higher followers across the board. I have a 38k account with 4%-8% and I have a 10k account with 10%-15%. The more followers you get the more organic growth you get and you start to hit diff times zones. And that is what causes a lot of fluctuation from day to day... Also not everybody logs in everyday...

    I even see people state percentages of 20%+ seems a bit sketchy to me... Always hard to tell who is manipulating numbers and who isnt. Soooo many variables to consider.

    As Ndnstyl wrote, the higher the follower count, the lower the engagement. It goes to all niches, no one niche is immune.
    Anyone getting 10% engagement and has over 25K followers is a genius on Instagram, or playing around with fakes. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide.
    And anyone nearing 40%-50% or more at 5K+ followers is a true-blue, Italian hand-made Pinocchio, no other way around it.

    it all depends. My main account (84k) gets around 4-5% engagement, however I get those same amount of likes (sometimes even more) on my 22K account. Both are in the same niche. But as stated above, I saw the engagement % drop on my higher account. Probably it is easier to hit explore page with a smaller account, which results in a much higher engagement.

    What's working for my accounts very well lately, is to follow people from targeted accounts that have interacted the last 5min. So you now they are active and online.

    I have some questions if you want to know engagment %.

    1. Do you use also hashtags? Or are this engagment rates without hashtags?
    2. How long do you wait to calculate your engagment rate? After 2 hours, after 24 hours?

    My accounts are up to 4k followers (1800-3600) and Acc1 is 5600. This is my engagment after ~24h with hashtags posts.

    Acc1 = 6%
    Acc2 = 18%
    Acc2 = 21%
    Acc3 = 26%
    Acc4 = 13%
    Acc5 = 29%

    All my accounts are under 2k, but the ones close to it are hovering between 100-200%. Considering my newer accounts have between 500-1000% Im sure it will continue to decrease. Interested to see how they compare against other accounts later on.

    Reading all the decent engagement, I wonder what techniques you are applying to get your followers?

    Are you using follow/unfollow botting or some other approach. Would be interesting to hear this and the total no. of followers you have amassed.
