Do you know that post that makes you stop the scrolling? Instagram posts that make you say to yourself – why didn’t I think of this caption or photo? You have to start thinking about a strategy to write posts that CREATE engagement. Instagram strategy doesn’t have to be complicated! You can make Instagram strategy simple and still grow your Instagram following and Instagram engagement.
Firstly, Getting engagement on Instagram posts can be tricky. Sometimes you think you got a killer caption, but all you hear is crickets.
You spend hours finding the perfect quote, going on google to check your spelling – guilty here – and get all excited about that post that will get you tons of new followers and comments… and then, nothing. Ugh!
I totally get it, and I’ve been there. I often hear from other bloggers and business owners on Instagram that their engagement is not great, and they don’t know what to do to improve that.
That’s why I created the Killer Instagram Post Checklist. This is a formula I came up with to always make sure you get good engagement on your post. Likes? Yep. Comments? Yep!
But first, I’m going to share a few with you here today.
Use these simple strategies to grow your Instagram following and engagement.
1- Make the first few lines the most interesting of your caption. If you can’t capture your reader’s attention in the first few lines, you lose them. Keep this in mind when writing your caption and you are off to a great start.
2- Write like you are talking to one person only. Yes! It’s one person behind the screen looking at your picture and reading your caption. When you have one person in mind the words flow better on the paper. Try that next time you write.
3- When you are done writing, read the post out loud. Does it sound like you? Does it sound like a real conversation you would have with someone? Those are questions that are helpful when writing your caption.
