I don’t know about you, but I have been extremely frustrated with social media lately, specifically Instagram.
As a blogger, Instagram is so important for business. Lately, I’ve been struggling so much with it. And I know I’m not the only one. In many of my Facebook blogger groups, others are also complaining about Instagram as well.
Why is Instagram making it so hard for us to grow and get engagement? I’ve noticed the only way, I have been able to get any sort of organic engagement is when I spend practically all day commenting and liking pictures. I was in 2 comment pods for a split second last week, then I read an article about Instagram cracking down on pods. Of course I left the pods after that.
By doing this, I feel like my blog is on the back burner. I spend so much time on Instagram that I feel like I barely have time to work on blog posts. My blog should first and Instagram second.
Then of course there are those accounts who just started months ago who have thousands of followers! I’ve been blogging for over 3 and 1/2 years and have been actively blogging for over a year and I’m struggling to get to 1500 followers on Instagram! How are these accounts doing it? Please tell me your secrets!
Social media should not be so difficult for businesses. Honestly, I wish Instagram would go back to when it was easy to grow and get comments. All I want to do is get in Reward Style and I won’t be able to do it with Instagram the way it is.
