My business’ instagram followers has seen massive growth after posting a reel. I hardly think the reel is viral worthy, and these new followers mostly are in different countries, their accounts are either new, private, or not seemingly into my niche.
I know having followers that aren’t in my niche or are bots, fake, etc can hurt me with the algorithm, but I don’t see how I can do anything about it.
Thoughts on what is going on? From 2000 to 10.6 in less than 2 weeks. What’s the angle? Other than it may have crossed over to the ASMR audience, I don’t get it and don’t want to be blindsided by something.
Hey @amy4 - I think your instincts are correct - as the demographic is not your normal one - but this will help get you in front of more people, hopefully, and the audience will sort itself out - I would lean into creating many more like the one that got all the attention for a bit – love to hear back from you on how this goes through time!
Thanks all. I’ve started deleting or blocking the ones that have sketchy account names if I spot them as they come in by the 100s. Never thought I’d be annoyed at IG growth. Up to 11K. Time to take advantage of it and see if I can reach out to quality followers.
