Hi All, I am a travel blogger and my IG has real followers and is now growing organically, since several weeks. #1 - Since that is sorted now, I am wondering about my engagement levels. I have over 13.5k followers, one of my recent picture had over 1000 likes and 80+ comments in a day (this was my highest), my average per post is 600+ likes/ 40+ comments. However, sometimes they even drop to 300-400 avg which is wayyyy too low. I mix up hashtags - some regular travel ones, some country/city specific. What could be changing that 1 pic gets 300 and other gets 1000? All my pictures are super high quality and I don't mind if its 100 likes here/there but this is a LOT of difference. I put a lot of effort in deciding what goes on my account so its important to me. #2 - All brands I pitched to seem to like my account but are only interested in giving me free stuff - clothes, creams, food, blah blah. I am doing this full time so I am in it for the $$$$. Where can I find good travel/lifestyle brands to work with, who value people's efforts and are ready to pay for it? The best I got was $50 a post but I am hearing 100-200 bucks a pop is the norm and what others with my followers/engagement levels usually charge. Any inputs, idea's, tips would be great. thanks ya all.
