    I'm at 42.7K followers with 201 photos. My niche is pretty simple, it's a fitness/personal niche. I just post photos of my body progress and sometimes selfies, stuff that's going on in my life. I use FollowLiker to automatically like photos from followers of accounts with similar niches. I get around 50-100 new followers a day without using any other feature but liking. But for some reason my engagement is very low for 42K . Only a few of my photos will reach over 1K and most of the time they get close up to like 800-900 something likes. But recently a few of my photos haven't been getting many comments.

    Any idea what I can do/change? Thanks.

    How about adding videos? Instagram allows you to post 15-second videos. Instead of just liking, you can also try leaving comments on your followers and following.

    Unless you're a hot chic, it's very hard to gain likes in most niches. Try upping your posts with high quality photos, dress up your gym room, or your fitness wardrobe. If you're not already doing it, post some tips/videos about great tasting food/snacks. You are your own brand, if you don't dress it up, why are others gonna wanna like your posts?

    Think of it this way, would you "like" a photo of a dusty spot covered glass of orange juice, or of a photo of a cold sparkling glass of orange juice with shinny water droplets?

    Try hashtags, add fake likes to get in Top Post section and your engagement should improve :)

    Make something special. Remember that it is about the story. Your not the special one for your followers and you need to be that.

    Maybe you could dress up your gym (or the place where you train) with some Christmas stuff or do something with Christmas.

    The story is the most important thing.

    Also, get in the mind of your followers. Aks yourself the question, What is in my photo that people will like me?
    With girls its easy, throw in some ass or tits and the recipe is ready.

    Good luck!
