Hi Everyone! 🤗
There are so many talks now about Instagram posts not appearing regularly, getting lost in the feed, decrease of likes ⏬... Here is what I can tell you. Point by point:
1. Posts are commented and liked in the first 4-6 hours after they have been published. If you post more often - there is a possibility that you will not get enough engagement.
2. Have you ever noticed the old posts (published almost a week ago) appearing now at the beginning of the feed? Yes, this happens. Even if you’ve published your post a few days ago and did not post anything else since that time, Instagram will still show it to the audience.
3. The truth is that Instagram-audience lives by the principle "out of sight - out of mind". If you disappear from the radar for a long time (!), only a few people will ‘cry’ about it. They’ll get bored a bit and will switch to a more active competitor. Therefore, don’t take a 1 year creative vacation to get back your creativity.
4. Sometimes, if the blogger disappears for a long time, Instagram sends a notification to the followers that the user is back to publish posts. Have you noticed that too?
CONCLUSION: Keep the balance and you’ll get ‘instadzen 🙏’. Neither test the loyalty of the audience and disappear for a very long time, nor get a neurosis, thinking that how your audience will be without you if you disappear from the followers’ feed.
