4,000 Instagram Followers, but only getting around 800 Impressions

9 replies
I have an Instagram account for my Clothing brand that is launching at the end of the month. I currently have around 4,500 followers, but my posts only average 75-100 likes, and only reach 800 people.

I'm currently using 10-15 hashtags, and a Dx10 Engagement Group using Telegram.

Is there something I can do to increase my impressions?

    Hi Josh... try to stick around 5 to 10 hashtags per post and make sure they're 100% relative to the actual post. Meaning, don't use the same hashtags on every post you create and make sure they relate to the actual post. Also, if you post more frequently, you're going to increase engagement.

    We see a higher engagement rate when we're posting once a day instead of once every few days or once per week. Hope this helps. Instagram has a unique algorithm.

    Engage like mad Josh.

    The quickest and easiest way to boost engagement is to increase your engagement by:

    - Liking updates related to your clothing niche
    - Commenting on said updates

    Same day results dude. When I engage on IG, my Likes and comments begin to increase within 24 hours. But I REALLY engage LOL. Simplest way to do it.

    Post more and work on growing your following. I would say your numbers are about right and there's nothing really wrong there at all. However, I would work on using highly targeted hashtags and growing your following.

    Hi Josh,

    I suggest you use 30 hashtags, which I understand to be the max. However, they must be relevant, as I have read that Instagram can flag your account for using irrelevant hashtags.

    I would also suggest the timing of your posts, as there's time periods in where your audience is more likely to engage and/or are just available to see your post.

    Engaging yourself on IG will also bring reciprocal engagement.

    Best,
    Amir

    Post Instagram story every day with a call to action, but do not link to your website.



    Try to post the most interesting photos and give a short but interesting description.

    An easy way to gain the initial number of followers in the same instagram is to use such services https://poprey.com. Let me explain why: a blog with 10-15 subscribers will be poorly advertised initially. And a blog with a thousand subscribers is already naturanno, it will be native to grow much faster and with higher quality. This is psychology.

    Decrease the number of hashtags definitely. Brainstorm with your team about ideas for future posts, so they will be as interesting / engaging as possible. Ask your followers questions to engage them; put the question in the pic. Also, I had great results with using Fuelgram powerlikes (real and influential profiles, belonging to the niche you choose). Maybe you should try it.
