Everyone loves the buzz of creating a brand new Instagram Account. You create content that your audience that you’re almost certain your target audience will love. You post with the most popular hashtags and optimised ad copy. Then to your surprise after 1 whole day you’ve only gained 4 likes from fake followers that don’t even have an interest in your niche. Then you ask yourself why? One reason,  a lack of Targeted Followers.

It’s very simple, you need followers that have a genuine interest in your business, those that don’t will become what is none on Instagram as ‘Ghost Followers’. These are users who follow your account but don’t interact with your page.
