How do you engage more on Instagram? If you're looking for a way to increase your business on Instagram, then this blog post is for you. In this blog post, we'll cover 10 tips that will help increase engagement on the platform and get your business noticed.
1. Learn how to use hashtags effectively.
-Create a great caption that will help grab people's attention.
-A good rule of thumb is to use between three and five hashtags per photo or video, but no more than 30 total for each post. Try using branded hashtags with your company name in them as well! This gives you the opportunity to get noticed by new customers who are searching for clues about what products or services you offer. It also lets other users know which social media accounts they can find you on.
-Use hashtags that are popular in your industry, but also try to use some more specific ones where you think there might be an audience for your product or service.
-When using hashtags on Instagram Stories, avoid spamming people with too many tags and make sure they're relevant to the story itself! People want to connect with images of what's happening right now—not a bunch of words slapped onto it.
2. Make a single publication schedule for all of your social media accounts.
Use a scheduling tool like Hootsuite to schedule posts for the future so you don't have to spend time creating content on manual mode when it's not necessary! You can also use this free program to monitor what people are saying about your brand or product, engage with them by liking their photos or commenting on them, and follow other users who might be interested in seeing more from your business account. It also allows you to prewrite responses so that they're ready as soon as someone asks something specific about what you offer—which actually saves time over trying to come up with an answer within five seconds while simultaneously typing out a response!
3. Create quality content related to your product or service.
-People don't want to follow accounts that are just taking up space on their newsfeed. They want something relevant that is going to help them or entertain them!
-Optimize your images for the platform you're posting it on—for example, if you post a photo of an outfit and someone searches #ootd (outfit of the day) they might be looking specifically for outfits in general rather than yours in particular because it doesn't include specific tags like #fashionblogger or #instafashion. This way, when people search hashtags related to content you've posted before, they can easily find more pictures from your feed instead of wasting time scrolling through irrelevant posts by other users.
4. Interact with other people on Instagram by liking and commenting on their posts, following them and replaying their photos.
-When you like someone's photos or videos, it shows them that they've made an impression on you and gives their account a little more visibility in your newsfeed!
-Don't just focus solely on the posts of people who follow you. Look through hashtags relevant to your industry (or ones where your target market might be hanging out) and find accounts with large audiences to interact with—just make sure not to spam!
A good rule of thumb is never post anything promotional without first engaging with others' content for at least 24 hours before posting one of your own.
5. Use Instagram Stories for More Organic Reach
-People can't see your stories unless you share them with their friends who follow you! It's best to use this feature for more personal updates, like sharing what you did last weekend or behind the scenes content that isn't always readily available on your main Instagram feed.
-You also might want to think about using Stories for Q&As where people get to ask you questions one by one and then watch as their messages disappear in 24 hours—a great way of creating organic engagement without having to resort too much time spent looking through comments!
6. How to attract followers on Instagram?
-Create content that is appealing to your target market.
-Post photos and videos of exciting, relevant things happening in the world around you.
-Use hashtags smartly (don't abuse them).
