    Hey


    So I usually have posts with great engagement but sometimes there posts that have really low engagement compared to others (i mean i post the video and after 3-4 hours it has low engagement compared to other videos in 3-4hours)

    Should i delete those videos?

    IME engagement is more about individual posts. The overall account has other parameters such as commercial intent or not. They know whether an account is personal or commercial. But for posts, one engagement data won't influence the next as far as I can tell.

    We know a lot of marketers that do delete low engagement posts, sometimes within the first 20 minutes, and post something right away to try to bring the engagement up. They also delete a lot of older posts over time so that their total posts are not so "high" relative to their total followers. We do that as well. Not sure what the general consensus on that is.

    Why? Do you really think there's any difference between - deleting them and archieve them?

    I do delete from time to time. For some reason I noticed my engagement was better.

    Keep the posts, and add another engagement element to the content. How difficult is it to find another related video you can embed in the post? Or a second poll, helpful diagram image, or download? Then re-promote the link or article title to draw more visitors and engagement.
