    Okay. But enlight me this: lets say you're not one of those with crappy content, and actually delivering great content for specific audience.
    How do you stand out? Like for real; how do you make people like, comment, AND share your content?
    (I know how things work on IG, technics and strats, but.. as you say, its a little over-saturated)

    Cheers! :)

    No, isnt alte
    But isnt the same as years ago where your competition were some medium teenagers and new adults and at most some automation tools users and you could do 2k actions daily without any trouble or problem.

    If YOU CAN
    Outsmart the already known guys
    Outsmart the already known methods
    Outsmart the anti fraud system
    Outsmart the Machine Learning Algo
    Outsmart the competition
    Outsmart your own limits
    Yes its possible.

    To be honest, I'm not an IG'er and it was more of a blanket statement about the over-saturation part, but with all the methods here, it's all in the testing and is unique to each account. If you have a lot of posts, that means you have an abundance of data and in that data lies the answer. I like to use what I call a 'bin' approach, where I create bins for, in this example, Posts that get likes, Posts that get comments, Posts that get shares. Then I'd assign a point value or weight to score each bin. For example Shares are the most important, so I'd weigh it as 50%, Comments are worth 30%, and Likes at 20%, totaling 100%. So if a post has the 50 comments and 150 likes with 2 shares, it would end up with:

    (50 * .3) + (150*.2) + (2 * .5) = 46

    (See attachment for this in spreadsheet form)

    Once you have that, you can tell which posts are gold vs the stagnant ones. Of course, this is a very broad overview. Other factors such as time of day, location-specific posts, etc should be taken into consideration. All this data becomes your baseline for future posts and you can recreate your best performing posts, just changing it to fit what you are trying to achieve with your latest post. In the spreadsheet below, post 10 is viral compared to the others. With this, I would try to isolate why it's viral. I'd make a post with a similar topic, a post at the same time, a post on the same day of the week, a post that's visually similar, plus a combination of each and then let them go for a certain period and see which of those posts also starts gaining traction. Eventually, you will see that posts on Sunday afternoons between 4 and 5 on a specific topic repeatedly perform well. Armed with these conclusions, you can set up a posting calendar that is backed by solid data. Of course, you can also do the same with the competition to see where they rank, but there is a lot of data you don't have, such as knowing how many shares, likes, etc were purchased vs. organic.

    Ah I see, thanks for you time and valuable info!
    So it all remains of analysing the data of each post in term to determine where's the "golden spot".
    Sorry for my english. But I got you!
    Cheers :)

    With the right angle (or a new angle, approach), no business or project is too late to get into.

    Don't buy followers. It will take you one step back instead forward. Instead, you can find relevant IG content create an account that provide good content for your niche growth slowly and once you hit the 10k Followers start monetize. The ideas are endless. you can just scroll around the forum or get yourself a guide that will take you step by step in the process.

    I don't think it's too late but depends on what you want to do. If you want to make it big time it may be harder to do now than it would have been 3 years ago

    It is not to late. If you stay focused and know what you are doing, you can still get into IG.
