It’s not tiktok.

Even though Instagram has some reach it doesn’t even come close to what TikTok provides that’s why you need to find what works on Instagram and what doesn’t.

The Solution

Create amazing reels. Coming from a developer I have seen Instagram accounts with less than 100 followers getting 100k+ plays on their reels. How? Using simple transitions, trending music, and relevant Hashtags.

How to know if you are doing it right on not?


If you are getting than less 10 likes on your 1000 plays chances are your reels aren’t that good because that simply means you have an engagement rate of less than 1% some basically zero grow the likes in ratio with the plays and seeing how much reach you increase.
