Because you’re trying to take a shortcut.
Growth hacks should be used…
As the icing on the cake ; Not as base layer
And I see this on my own accounts too.
When I post boring content, it doesn’t reach non-followers.
When I post great content, hashtags and explore helps me to grow a lot.
So what should you do?
Start with the basics first.
Define your audience
- Who are they?
- Who do they want to becomes?
- What are their goals?
- Where are they stuck?
Understand how platforms work.
This will make it much easier to create better content.
Then create content that helps your audience become who they want to become.
- Educational carousels
- Talking videos
- Cool images with longer copy
- Entertainment (funny, aesthetic, etc.)
And only then growth hack.
