My IG account had it going pretty good last year, I went to almost 2k likes per photo (okay, I'm exaggerating a little). Now, it's back to 700 likes, if I'm lucky, around 1k per photo. I'm still using the same time of the day for photo sharing as before, so, that's not the reason. I'm also getting followers less than before. Like, to get 100 followers, it takes me a few days more than last year (natural growth). I'm afraid it's the competition that's killing me, they're "stealing" my followings. What would you do now, with an IG account close to 50k followers? And with no budget, if possible. Would you steal followers from others as well even though 'you're this big' (as in # of followers)? I don't think shoutouts from similar accounts would do much, either. And I've never done contests since I've got nothing to giveaway but also, don't want to lose credibility with fake stuff. And my niche doesn't really go in with contests that much. Thanks for the suggestions!
