Ever wondered why some Instagram posts get a lot more engagement than others?
How does the algorithm determine what posts to push out for more people to see?
There is many different factors that determine how much reach a post will receive but the one factor that is at the top of the list is…….. ENGAGEMENT!
When your post receives a lot of likes, comments & success this indicates to the algorithm that your post is popular so it will shown to even more people.
So more of your followers will see your post and it could also be shown in the “top posts” section in hashtag search and/or the “explore” page which will open your post and Instagram profile up to a completely new audience.
Want to know the number one way to get more likes and comments when you post??!!
Give more engagement
The next time you go on to Instagram:
✨ Like and comment on 10 posts that show on your feed
✨ Watch 10 stories and send a quick emoji or message to at least 5 stories that you watch.
Instagram sees how we are using the platform and will show your content to people who use the platform in a similar way – so if you are giving engagement you will get it in return.
If you aren’t liking and commenting on other posts you won’t likes and comments on your posts.
I have tested it on my accounts and on those of my clients and I have seen this happen so many times first-hand.
Give it a go, I promise you will see a difference.
