Wanna know the number one way to get your posts seen and increase your engagement organically? Avoid bots.
>>Fake followers and bots may be targeting your Instagram account and reducing the amount of real people who actually see the content you produce.<<
So, let’s talk about exactly how to spot them and get rid of them so your posts get shown to people who will actually engage!
How to Spot a Bot:
- They only have a few posts (or none at all).
- They are following a TON of people.
- They don’t have a profile photo or bio.
- Their username is a bunch of letters + numbers mixed together.
*A bot doesn’t need to have ALL of these elements, but if your recent follower has at least 2… they are a bot!*
Now that you know how to spot a bot, let’s talk about how to clean up your account... without having to use a third-party app (yes Hustler, we’re doing this the old school way!):
- Spend 10-15 minutes every day removing bot followers from your account...or
- Invest in a virtual assistant who will do this for you!
That's right...something that could take just 10 minutes a day could massively affect the impact your account can have.
>>We know it may be hard for you to remove hundreds or even thousands of followers from your account… but forget about the metrics, friend.<<
Remember: your account will go farther with 1,000 highly engaged followers than 10,000 fake accounts and passive followers just scrolling on by!
