Excerpt from this article:
I’m not an Instagram expert.
But I do know how to grow an audience, create value on social media, and a few things about what’s interesting.
I’ve done some experimenting with my For The Interested Instagram account in the past few weeks and it’s led me to suggest you try out a strategy the Insta-experts will consider to be blasphemy.
It’s complicated, so get ready to concentrate. Ready? Here goes…
“Stop. Using. Hashtags.”
Ok, maybe it’s not THAT complicated.
But it’s the opposite of what every Instaguru out there tells you to do to grow or improve your account.
And they’re right. If you paste 20 hashtags into each of your posts, you will get more likes and followers.
