Unfollowers on Instagram - what should you do with them? And what about people who don't follow you back? In this post you will learn:
When you find out you have unfollowers on Instagram it can come as quite a shock.
The initial happiness of seeing your follower numbers growing is given a big kick in the bum when suddenly numbers start to decrease for seemingly no reason. "Why would people unfollow me?" you think.
There are many many different reasons you might have unfollowers on Instagram but whatever they are there is only one course of action you should take. You need to unfollow them too. Why?
In order to keep track of followers and unfollowers on Instagram you should use a third party app that you download from the App Store.
I can't really give any recommendations right now because they change so often and Instagram's third-party API rule changes so often that apps are changing so often.
But any general search in the App Store for tracking followers will give you any number of choices.
But the best part about them is that they can tell you who followed you, who unfollowed you, and who is not following you back.
That makes it easy to deal with the numbers and decide on who you want to keep and who you don't want to keep.

Now one thing you should keep in mind is who you follow in the first place.
I mean, if you follow someone who has 30,000 followers or 2 million followers or someone famous in Hollywood the chances of them following you back are quite remote when you are first starting. Why?
Well it tends to be that people follow people on similar levels to them. People are looking for value from each other. They are looking for mutually beneficial relationships especially when it comes to business on Instagram and monetising accounts.
So if you only have 200 followers and you follow someone with 25,000 followers well then you must expect that they will not follow you back. So it's best not to follow them in the first place.
Also, if someone followed you when you both had similar numbers but then for whatever reason that person became much much bigger then again, it is possible that they will unfollow you.
This is perfectly natural and nothing to worry about. Don't get angry or upset, coz you'll likely do it too when you grow your accounts big.
So when you are following people in the first place make sure that they have similar numbers to you and they are people that you think have a high chance of following you back.
This will minimise the risk of people unfollowing you and causing you Instagram depression!
It is always important to remember that Instagram only allows you to follow 7,500 people.
You cannot go above that number so you must choose who to follow carefully.
A good thing to think about is you should always aim to have a ratio of 1:1 (followers:following). If you have a ratio of 1:4 then people are less likely to follow you back.
It may seem ridiculous, and childish and high school like but that is the way that Instagram works.
So follow lots of people, and if they don't follow you back within 48-72 hours, unfollow them! Instagram gives you limited space - don't waste it on people not interested in you.
And if you have unfollowers on Instagram, unfollow them too!
Unfollowers on Instagram can cause people all sorts of anxiety and insecurities. Don't worry about them. The simple solution is to unfollow them too.
The only time to keep unfollowers on Instagram would be if that person is offering super value on their account and they are helping you in some way.
If not, get rid of them. So the key things to take away from today?

Hi there Iain here. I made this site simply because I want to find ways of adding multiple income streams to my life so I can retire early and live the good life. Why rely on one income when there are so many ways out there you can earn, especially online? So as I learn about them all, I want to pass my knowledge on to you so you can do the same. Here's hoping we can all retire early and go travel the world or sit by the ocean sipping cocktails!
