Wondering why you're not getting many likes?

Wondering why you're not getting many likes?

 

Have you been sitting there wondering why you're not getting many likes or comments on your posts; while others seem to be smashing it?  What about saves and shares?  Sometimes we feel everyone else is doing great while we are struggling along...
Firstly I want to say what you see isn't always the truth.  It may LOOK like others are doing great but you never know what is happening behind the scenes.  And we must always remember that what someone shares on Instagram is often the highlights and is also only a tiny portion of their full day.
But at the same time, it is always beneficial for us to look at ourselves and what we are sharing.  Sometimes there are small tweaks and changes we can make that will bring us quick wins.  Maybe we've just gone off track a little bit.
.
Here are 5 reasons why you may not be getting the engagement you deserve.
.
1. Your key messages aren't clear.  Is it clear to your audience what you do and how you can help them or make their life better?   Are you focusing on how you can help your audience, not only sharing the features of your product or service? 
.
2. You're posting without a plan.  With no plan or strategy comes confusion.  Are you sticking to 4-5 keys messages or topics?  Always remember not everyone sees all of our posts so we need to reshare and remind our audience how we can help them.
.
3. You're not using hashtags effectively.  Hashtags are a great way for a new audience to discover you but are you reaching the right people?  Are you varying your hashtag groups?  Instagram doesn't like it if you use the same hashtags every time.
.
4. You're not being social.  It's called Social Media for a reason... You win when you engage with your followers as much as they engage with you.  Like, comment and share other accounts and they will support you back. With engagement Instagram sees you as an active account so will share more of your content.
.
5. You're bio isn't strong.  Is it clear to a new visitor to your page what you are all about?  The more simple and clear your message is the more people will want to stick around.
.
