You Don’t Need 10,000 Followers on Instagram. Here’s Why
First of all let’s break the wheel behind the idea that you need to have million followers.
The fact is that you don’t. What you need or highly engaged followers who convert easily to your email list. Your email list is your gold.
Those who are on your email list are much more likely to convert into actual paying clients and customers then those who are simply following you on Instagram to like a pretty picture.
Secondly take a look at the people who have tens of thousands of followers, if not millions. Unless you’re a celebrity, you’re only going to see a max of 500 or so likes per post. That is less than 1% of 100,000 followers list.
That’s pretty awful. You always want to make sure that your engagement is above 1% of your total of number of people following you.

Thirdly, it’s vital that you understand the concept behind your business How you’re going to share that story. The way you share your story on Instagram is going to be and should be totally different then the story that another competitor or other brand shares on Instagram.
Stop following the trends go outside go beyond those trends and transcend the concept and the mission of your brand. Lastly there are still many insider secrets happening right now on social media.
There are ways that you can target your audience on Facebook without ever really having to change anything about the way that you write a piece of content. There are also ways on Instagram that you can more authentically connect with your followers as a post to liking a post or placing a simple comment.
Instagram is about constantly finding innovative ways to overcome its algorithm. Daenerys Targaryen failed many times during her reign over Qarth and Mereen, but she never gave up. She always found a new perspective to launch herself from. Keep looking for that.
Part of breaking the wheel is knowing that it is going to be a challenge because stopping the wheel is much easier than changing it.
