2 Do NOTS on Instagram

You can destroy your chances of growing a following on Instagram before you even start if you don’t consider these two tips.

Scam 1: Do NOT Use Bots on Instagram

So what are bots? Bots are designed to engage with your content and make you seem like someone with a huge following which in-hope generates more followers. Basically, this destroys the Instagram algorithm because they cannot track real data on who really likes your content and who are your genuine superfans. It also eliminates trusted data on what hashtags and explore-pages will truly attain more followers. Bots destroy your algorithm!! Ok… You may be saying “I already know that. That part is obvious.” Well, let me provide some information that you may not know here at the end. Bare with me. Engagement pods are groups of friends, colleagues, social connections, random large groups of people that commit to engaging with each other’s content every day to generate traffic and make your page seem to have high natural engagement. 

Scam 2: Do NOT Use Engagement Pods on Instagram 

Engagement pods are groups of friends, colleagues, social connections, random large groups of people that commit to engaging with each other’s content every day to generate traffic and make each other’s pages appear highly engaging. Similar to the bots this causes Instagram’s algorithm to come up pointless.

Consider in your engagement pod you have a 60-year-old grandpa on a Florida beach scrolling through his IG feed. Then consider a 23-year-old single mother living in Washington state trying to become an influencer on IG… and what do you sell? You sell football cleats… How helpful is it for IG to boost your football cleat posts to 60-year-old men in Florida? How useful is it for IG to boost your posts to a waitress in Washington? Not useful at all! That is why engagement pods do not work on Instagram. Do NOT use them. 

Hidden Key

If you use bots and/or engagement pods IG will detect your activity through the “spam algorithms” they have created to detect this kind of activity. If you participate in these things IG will shut your post rate (post rate is how many of your follower’s feeds your posts actually show up on) down to as low as 3%. That means if you have 1,000 followers only 30 followers will receive your posts on their feed… That is TERRIBLE. That is why these techniques cannot be used on IG. Don’t buy the scam find a strong team that is built on principles that can execute any services you need.
