How Instagram shut us down, all of a sudden

We remember this so vividly. On Jan 13th, 2022, our social media team did the usual morning routine every person does. Check their phone. But what greeted them was a message that sent shockwaves throughout the whole of Pickyourtrail.

“Your Instagram account has been disabled until further notice.”

Our Instagram account was the backbone of our social media presence. It was our brand’s spokesperson, the medium through which we connected with our audience. Without it, we couldn’t stay on top of our audience’s minds. Losing it was like losing a part of ourselves. The team was devastated, and there didn’t seem to be a possible solution to solve this problem. But they didn’t give up. They fought tooth and nail to get their account back, and after a month of hard work, we finally succeeded and got our account back.

Seems like a very straightforward ending to a dramatic start, but no. The struggles were far from over.

The engagement rate of the account plummeted after we got it back, which meant that we had to work twice as hard to get back to where we were before and increase instagram followers. But of course, hustlers we are, and we didn’t win the ‘Most Resilient Startup Of The Year’ award for no reason. We put in the effort, created engaging content, collaborated with top influencers, and hopped on trends to widen our audience base and add more instagram followers. It was a challenging task, yes, but our perseverance paid off. Now with a new milestone of hitting 200k followers (202k by the time we wrote about this and posted it) on Instagram, double of what we had a year back, we couldn’t be happier with this feat.

But that’s not the end of the story. We, as a brand, aren’t content with just hitting this milestone. We wanted to document every leg of our success journey, reminding ourselves of where we came from and always reaching for the stars. And with our extremely dedicated team, we know we can cross the toughest challenges and hit the biggest targets. If you’re wondering who this team is we’re talking about, we have a dedicated page on Instagram that celebrates these wonderful troopers – Check out Life at Pickyourtrail.

This experience taught us that every success story has its struggles, and every failure is just a stepping stone to success. We learned that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. We hope this story serves as a source of inspiration for anyone going through tough times. Don’t give up on your dreams. Keep pushing, keep striving, and one day, you too can achieve greatness.
