    I got a Instagram page with 16k followers for about a year, it aint growing it aint doing shit.

    2 Month ago i had about 80k views per video, then i stopped uploading for like 3-4 weeks, and when i startded again i only get about 400 views per Video LOL.

    Somebody please tell me whats wrong with my Account, i see other people on here posting they gain like 50k followers in 1 month, and i am lurking around with 16 for a whole year jesus christ

    I have some ig accounts too and i gain like 3K followers per month so all people who gain so much followers maybe have accounts on season type niches/ fan clubs or do actions manually(which i do not). Though 16K in a year is too less but posting regularly keeps the account active. Maybe you should try posting daily and start interacting with your audience which will help alot.

    Just think an out of the box and try to engage your followers with interesting posts about your account. The engagement is the only route to get the good views of your account as same as to increase more followers.

    Not hard to see why your account kind of died when you stopped posting for a few weeks. Instagram hates inconsistency and penalized you accordingly.

    On that note, there really is no "secret" to IG growth. Post great, engaging content, interact with your followers and join a few engagement groups. Keep the hashtags to a minimum. There were a few exploits that helped a lot with engagement but they've been patched.

    Honestly, even though you have 16k, I would start over. Your account is effectively dead and you probably won't be able to revive it at this point.

    I guess..because you were inconsistent. Its like a fast bandwagon,if you missit..you need to get up and start at it a fast rate.

    Engagement is so, so much more important than follower numbers, especially if you plan on doing promos/advertisements/shoutouts on your accounts at a later time. 16k dud followers is dead weight. I recommend starting over.

    Maybe you didn't cloak your links out or got flagged as a commercial account and were ghost banned or limited?

    I know Facebook will limit some posts to oblivion depending on some matched words or content.

    Pretty much. I would only do follow/unfollow for the first few hundred followers, then stop it. Then concentrate on trying to get your posts on explore. Engagement groups help with that. You like/comment on others' posts and (hopefully) they reciprocate. There are a ton on the first page.

    For general engagement, ask your audience questions about your post. A simple one is asking "top or bottom?" in regards to a picture of two cars. The possibilities are infinite.

    Go to a different PC, or browse your IG postings at a shopping mall computer store and see if the stuff you're posting is still there.
