How to Grow Your Instagram Account - Part IX
A lot of artists are disappointed with some of the recent changes at Instagram. The algorithm has evolved, as they always do, and some artists are having trouble seeing the engagement that they used to.
But first, in case you missed it, I recently let you know that we, BoldBrush, are addressing this situation. Artists NEED a photo sharing app without all the TikTok algorithm insanity. So we have released a social media app called “Musero” - it is a new photo sharing network that works very similarly to the original Instagram: Easy photo and art sharing. Chronological Feed. No crazy algorithm. No TikTok style insanity. It also has some features that Instagram always lacked - for example - you can embed links to your website into a post on Musero. It also supports groups.
Musero is now live and available in both Apple’s App Store (for iOS) and Google Play (for Android). Once you install the app, there is also a link to a web version which you can use to post from your desktop computer if you find that helpful. Here’s what it looks like:
If you haven’t already singed up for Musero, be sure to do it. It’s free and ready for you to start promoting your art. We plan to start inviting more artists and collectors to join next week.
OK, back to Instagram. The changes are disappointing, however, all is not lost (and our @boldbrush account is killing it under the new Instagram algorithm), today we’re continuing our series to help you understand how to be successful on Instagram and how to work with their algorithm instead of against it.
