How to Increase Instagram Engagement + Beat the Algorithm Happy Hour with Hope

For Photographers

I think we all know by this point that Instagram algorithms are making small business owner’s lives VERY hard. Instagram used to be the app that we all relied on to show our followers our content when Facebook started to hide our posts…and now Instagram is almost worse. The app is determining which content is important enough for our followers to see, and potentially burying our posts at the bottom of people’s feeds…even if they follow us and WANT to see our posts!

So, how do we combat that as business owners to increase the likelihood that our followers will see the things we are sharing? And, how can we continue to overall use the app for it’s original purpose: to build RELATIONSHIPS and connection? In today’s YouTube video I’m breaking down 3 ways I encourage my followers to interact with me + increase engagement on my posts!
