Stop Fighting the Algorithm

Audrey Wolf Blog Post - Stop Fighting the Algorithm

Let’s have a little chat about the notorious Instagram algorithm. We’ve all heard the whispers and frustrations about it, but here’s the truth: fighting against it is like trying to wrestle a sandwich out of Joey’s hands. It’s just not worth the effort! Here’s why:

The Algorithm is One Smart Cookie

Seriously! (And y’all know how much I love my cookies!) Trying to outsmart it with tricks and hacks is a losing battle. It learns, adapts, and evolves EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Quality Beats Quantity

Well, sort of. Let me explain. Quality should always be at the forefront when you, as a business owner, are trying to reach potential clients. However, the more content you share, the more the algorithm has to push out to your followers and the discovery page. So finding the right balance between quality and quantity is key.

Focus on Creating Genuine

Create valuable posts that resonate with your audience, and toss out the ‘Monica’ in you that wants everything to be perfect! I’ve said it a million times . . .

done is better than perfect!

Be Yourself

The algorithm knows when you’re trying to be someone you’re not. So, embrace your quirks, share your unique self, and let your personality shine through.


The algorithm loves it when you engage – it’s like Joey with his favorite sandwich. So, instead of worrying about outsmarting it, connect with your audience. Respond to comments on your posts, like and comment on others’ posts, and build genuine friendships. It’s the true Central Perk camaraderie that counts.

Enjoy the Ride

Remember, Instagram should be fun! It’s like a Friends marathon with endless laughs. So, stop stressing over the algorithm and enjoy the process. Try new things, experiment, and have a blast. Because, hey, we all know life is better with friends – and Instagram is no exception!

So, my Friends fans, battling the Instagram algorithm is as pointless as Ross trying to pivot that couch up the stairs. Instead, focus on quality content, be your authentic self, engage with others, and enjoy the ride. Let’s leave the algorithm to its mysterious ways and embrace the community we’ve come to be a part of on this Insta platform.

You got this! 🌟😄
