In the first week of the Astrology Lane Instagram page being established, we saw major growth for the page.
In the second week (currently), there has been less growth as we have not posted. This has been a lesson in regular posting and its link to growth which has been particularly highlighted in recent readings and lectures in BCM114.
Interaction with the page was really great and we received positive feedback that stated our followers resonated with our posts, which was really encouraging. However, we are yet to receive any constructive feedback on ways to grow our DA.
We also noticed, through using the ‘Insights’ tool on Instagram, that our followers reflected the initial demographic we believed would engage the most with our content (13-30 year old women).
The Insights tool has been very useful as we are able to see how well posts are going in terms of how many people visited our page through that particular post, how many people saw it, how many times it was direct messaged to someone and how many people have saved it for future viewing.
We posted the first blog post to our WordPress account. We asked a question through Instagram Stories and tailored the post to answer topics that came up. It isn’t expected to gain much response as it is just in the beginning stages. We will continue to build on this and discover if it is worthwhile to continue.
We are in the process of creating the Spotify playlists as accompanying content to our Instagram content, and these will be published within the next week.

With the words of Hasso Plattner, Ted and our tutors on our minds, we have continued to ideate through the process of creating our digital artefact and have come up with further ideas to test in the future.
