Content is KEY when it comes to growing engagement on Instagram. Without professional photos or videos your audience aren’t likely to be inspired and captivated by what you’re posting. 

A variety of high quality content is essential! Nobody wants to see the same things posted over and over again. Tap into what your followers are interested in to mix up your Instagram feed and keep your followers engaged.

Hashtag, hashtag, hashtag! But not just any hashtag! Make sure you’re using the most relevant hashtags relating to your photo or video. Hashtags on Instagram are a great way for new accounts to discover your page, and connect you with people who are genuinely interested in what you are posting, which could lead to them following you, engaging with your posts and ultimately buying into your brand! Use all the 30 hashtags that Instagram allows to the max! 

Eye catching videos

Video content is the best way to get your followers to stop scrolling and pay attention to what you’re posting! Create a few short video clips that showcase your brand in the best possible way and watch as your engagement on Instagram increases.

Captions that captivate

Last but not least in this blog is how to captivate your followers on Instagram through captions. Use your captions as another way to stand out form the crowd. You have your mega photo or video, now you need a mega caption to go with it!

Use call to actions such as ‘Tag your favourite pizza lover below’ or ‘Comment your favourite cocktail’ to get users naturally engaging in your posts and tagging their friends! 

Another tip is to add humour to your captions and to use emojis that reflect the mood of your post.
