Did you know you can use “the beast” at your advantage? You can make the algorithm get followers for you.
Its interest is making users stay on the platform and finding out about their interests, so it can match content, thus keep them on the platform some more (to show ads and make money…).
You create the content it needs, but you also need to be “part of the team”.
You gotta play its same game!
There are just a few simple rules to follow.
THINGS THAT WILL MAKE THE ALGORITHM NOT WANNA GET FOLLOWERS FOR YOU
Let’s start with the DON’Ts (and why it won’t like them):
- Join engagement pods
Because it’s just like trying to trick it. It will notice you’re checking on the same few profiles, coming from a source which is not the list he’s giving you in your home (basically it worked for you and you’re ignoring the effort… rude!!!).
- Follow random accounts
Because the algorithm categorizes or “labels” your account, based on: who you follow, who you engage with and hashtags you use.
- Post randomly
Because the algorithm is a machine and there’s nothing machines love more than scheduling and predicting what’s gonna happen, based on the available data (one being you posting).
- Skipping comments
Because if the algorithm sees you just posting your stuff and never commenting on other people’s posts, it’ll assume you don’t wanna play the SOCIAL game.
THINGS THAT WILL MAKE THE ALGORITHM GLADLY AND EASILY GET FOLLOWERS FOR YOU
Now the DOs (and why it will like them)
- Use relevant hashtags ONLY
Because the algorithm needs you to use relevant hashtags, so it can correctly ”label” your posts and your account, thus show your content to interested (you’d totally be helping, so it’ll help you…).
- Act like a human
Because the algorithm is nothing more than a bunch of lines of code, written by a human, struggling to make it resemble human reasoning. It learns from us, so if the most of us is not acting like a human, it’ll never learn and get us wrong, so we will acting weirder, thus… a loop!!!
Follow these simple rules to get more followers!
Just help it help you!!!
