How to calculate Organic Reach Rate on Instagram

Organic Reach Rate (ORR) is the percentage of your followers who see your posts WITHOUT spending money on ads.

Post ORR = Organic Reach divided by Followers

Profile ORR = Average of all Post ORR’s during the given time interval (ie: last month)

If you promote (boost) published posts with paid spend, you will see both organic reach and paid reach. But ORR relates only to organic reach. It’s the best indicator you have of understanding what percentage of your community are actually seeing your posts. If it’s really low (eg: single-digit percentage) it might be time to consider investing in paid ad spend.

What affects the Instagram Organic Reach Rate?

There are many factors which affect the performance of Instagram posts organically, here are just a few:

– The way people interact with your content (likes vs comments vs saves)

– Posting different media types (photos vs carousels vs videos)

– Changes to the Newsfeed algorithm

– Posting about different themes and subjects

– When you post (day and time)

– Tagging others in the post and/or using hashtags
