Instagram 2 week challenge

Instagram 2 week challenge - student project


I really hope this course will help me, I have been struggling with gaining followers for ages. I am aware that the algorithm has changed since this course was made, but I still think it might help me.

So today, 18th of Jan 2019 I start this 2 week challenge. I have already made some changes to my profile, but here is where I am at now: 238 followers.

I am debating wether to have a real picture of me in my profile and not an illustration. 

My plan for the next 2 weeks is:

-to post 1-2 times a day

-post to stories as often as possible, max 4 times a day

-follow the statistics and try to find an ideal time to post - although I don't know if this matters so much anymore.

-add the hashtag to my post and not as a comment (read somewhere that this is better)

-also post pictures of myself doing art

-try to be personable and sincere in my captions and engaging


Although I am committed to the challenge I don't want to take my success personally and will remind myself that the amount of likes doesn't reflect on my work.


I have to say that I am quite frustrated with the algorithm - I feel like my posts used to get more engagement before, and when I look at my own feed there are always quite old posts from the same few accounts. I think this makes it harder for someone who doesn't have a lot of followers to be seen. But I won't be defeated by this, I will still try my best to stick to the challenge. 

Any feedback and tips is so so so welcome! I will write an update in a week how it's going.
