    Hi guys!

    I have a fitness account and now she's 8% tanned by followers.


    Ex: 10k followers
    800 likes per pics




    In my view,


    2% is bad
    5% is medium
    10% is good


    what do you think?

    I think you got a good ratio. My cousin's fitness account is around 11k and she get's the same amount of likes you do

    I have a fitness account with ~1000 followers getting ~200 likes per pic currently (some pics have ~250).

    How do you guys manage to get a so good ratio ? What's your strategy to earn followers ?
    I have an 10K fitness account and only manage to get 200-250 likes per pic. I told myself that's it's not that important as long as I up my followers number, I would get 1K at 40K followers, etc... But I'm starting to tell myself that my account has a problem if you can get same likes with 10x less followers than me.
    I earned all my followers by follow/unfollow or commenting averaging a 150 new followers/day.

    If you could help me by telling me how you're earning your followers, that would be helpful to me, thank you.

    You've got a good account, 10% is fantastic.

    However, the best I've ever seen is my friend who has only just started his account a couple of months ago. He has ~1500 followers, but each pic gets 400-500 likes (30%). He is an artist and all his pics are of his awesome oil paintings that he has done. He set up the Instagram account to sell the paintings.

    Just goes to show what high quality/interesting pics can do.

    Exactly. My 1.5k account also gets 400 likes per picture. It's all about the quality of pictures and having targeted fans which are interested in your content. When you mix those two you get a very good engagement rate.

    In my opinion, 10% is average. I would aim higher if you can.

    If you want to increase engagement, you can try scraping users that commented or liked a certain pic within your niche in the last 24 hours.

    I have my personal account with 150 followers/friends, I get 50 likes per picture.

    I also have an account with 200k followers and get 5k likes per picture. Guess which one is "good" and makes money? The one with 200k followers!

    So your logic is flawed

    From 5% to 10% it's a good ratio, more than 10% I consider it very good. But the ratio it's important at 100k followers, not at 1k.

    My goal is for every 1k followers, you should have at least 100 likes.

    But your ratio is good.

    What do you mean in the last 24hrs? I scrape users who comment on certain photos (competitors) but it's been running for a week now. Should I delete those and start new queries for more recent photos?
