I’m seriously just about done with Instagram. My engagement has taken another hit this week and I don’t know why. I haven’t posted much in September and now I’m back and I’m down another 50% on my already low engagement. Here’s the results of a resent post - 37k followers. 3355 reach. 139 engagement. Stories not much better. I used to get three to four time that engagement just in the first hour. My thoughts on Instagram and its general direction is that it rewards quantity over quality. The result is easy to see. Take a look at what rises to the top. There’s no quality there. Memes, tits, junk. Nothing I do changes the junk I see on the explorer page. I’ve tried everything and all I see is a bunch of crap that’s about 70% irrelevant to me. I understand the algorithm is designed to reduce the number of posts people see, but IMO it’s not working. The writing is on the wall. If it’s not fun and no one no matter how big or small can get results then they’ll stop using it. Question: So, I need advice on how to revive/survive or I’m out. I’m not sure if I have a lot of ghost followers or Instagram is just not letting me get to my followers, should I remove ghosts? What’s the best way to do that? Am I just asking for more trouble from insta?
