  1. Instagram is so finicky. My follower count isnโ€™t growing but my engagement has doubled. Iโ€™m going to attribute that to using relevant hashtags.

  7. I’ve never given much thought about being on the Top 9 until I read this post. I try to use relevant hashtags whenever I post photos on Instagram. Photo composition helps, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks! Give the above a go and let me know how you get on! With the one you achieved last time, is there anything different you can identify that you did? Time, offer, photo composition? What was the search size of the hashtag you ranked for? Was it relevant to you, the phot or your customer? Good luck!

  18. Thanks for the tips! Trying to build my followers

      No worries! With building followers, there are a couple of things you can try. Find your competitors and follow their followers. If they are interested in your competitor’s products, chances are they will be interested in yours too. Second, try complementary niches. So say you sold bathroom fittings, follow bathroom decor and suppliers. Remember to keep in mind the follower ratio and to unfollow those accounts that don’t follow you back in a couple of days. Try an app like IG clean to keep on top of it. If you drop your account here, I am happy to follow you ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck!
