Raise your hand if you've ever felt personally victimized by the Instagram algorithm.
I know that the ever-changing algorithm can be sooo frustrating. It feels like just when you start to figure out a great strategy, something changes. Trust me, I get it.
And then you’ll gain 15 followers, but then 10 of them unfollow a day later. Hitting that next followers goal feels like it’s impossible.
Would you believe me if I told you that Instagram is actually trying to help you? Think about it from a business perspective - Instagram doesn’t want thousands of unhappy users! They want everyone to be happy Instagrammers so that their business can stay afloat. Believe it or not, they are not out to get you. In fact, they’re providing more and more resources to help you grow that IG account organically and authentically!
Instagram is keeping up with the trends. They know our own habits better than we do. Facebook generates a daily average of 8 billion video views, proving our love of consuming video content. This is why Instagram has really been stepping up the Stories game and then launched IGTV.
The power that Instagram Stories has on an accounts overall engagement is massive. Familiarizing yourself with all of the Insta story tips and tricks can be the key to working with the algorithm.
