    Hey,I am struggling with my engagement on my IG. The amount of likes/comments I receive for the amount of followers I have seems relatively low. I believe some of it has to do with my really fast growth and some inconsistencies in posting. I currently have ~3300 followers and receive 80-100 likes the first hour I post and then a pretty large taper and end up with 180-250ish likes. Shouldn't I be going for around 10% of my current followers? How can I increase engagement aside from more consistency and higher quality photos (already working on it)?

    You can try using the Location thing by saying Tag someone who xxxxx or Double Tap if xxxxxx
    Your engagement isn't actually that bad though, just keep consistent.

    Thanks! I'll try that. What would be a good like/followers %?

    Better way would be to select the attractive but useful niche to get you more followers and likes in IG. :)

    Engagement will vary between niches.

    I always strive for 10% but sometimes I get 5%. Don't sweat it OP. Engagement won't matter if you're making a good amount of money.

    As far as your engagement goes, it's still good.
