    Does anyone have any tips on increasing instagram followers? And not by buying them haha

    I think i'm posting decent pics and using hashtags but don't seem to be gaining. I recently did a cull of ghost followers so removed about 200 in the hopes of getting more engagement and exposure. Now down to ~250. But didn't really make a difference.

    I'm not overly concerned about it but If I'm doing something wrong I'd love some tips

    You have to put the time/effort into engaging with others or creating content that is engaging. Things like instastories get viewed a lot more, but Instagram turning off the like count has killed a lot of traditional 'engagement' in that people just scroll without actually liking/commenting a lot more now.

    It's a long graft, that or you need to be shared on popular accounts which may/may not get you more traction.
