Key Strategies to use for your Instagram

Success on Instagram like any other social media platform requires putting in some work. You’ll have to stay at it and be consistent before you start seeing your actions pay off. Here are some helpful tips to help you get along.

Go Big on Captions

Visuals are the heart of Instagram posts but you shouldn’t skimp on your captions. They are a great way to add context to your posts and share a little bit more about yourself. It’s an extra shot at compelling the reader to engage with you, to explore deeper into your brand and, to stick around and follow you.

Keep your captions brief and punchy. They should be inviting to your audience. Long and dreary captions will bore the reader and leave you with zero engagement on your posts. And, as long as they are appropriate, you should be throwing emoji’s into your captions too. They’ll help you express what words can’t and, they are proven to improve engagement. Just don’t drown your message in them.

Work the Hashtag

Another great way to boost your IG performance is to maximize your usage of Hashtags. They are a great way to boost your impressions and get people talking about your brand. Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags per post and, you should make the most of them. Pick catchy hashtags that people would love to share or latch onto some of the popular ones.

Be sure to use as many hashtags as possible. If they are relevant to the post or they reflect your brands message, go for them. There are many free tools out there to help you find great hashtags for your posts. You should check them out and make sure every time you post, you’re giving yourself the best chance possible.


Just like on every other social media platform engagement plays a large role in generating growth for your account. Over and above posting great content, you have to engage with other users as well. Comment on the posts you like and, talk to the people commenting yours. It is social media after all, you have to interact with people and show them you value their attention and their time. That’s how you build lasting relationships.

Post Consistently

Another key to seeing Instagram growth for your account is posting consistently. You can’t post once weekly and hope to grow your account. You have to post consistently and make sure you’re always putting out great content. No pressure though, 3 quality posts a day will do for a start. If you’re feeling inspired then more are okay, but no more than 5.

Posting consistently will help people grow to expect quality content from you, which in turm means your following will grow as more people come across your posts.

Be Different

One more thing you can leverage in your posts is uniqueness. It might sound cliché but, people want to experience new and exciting things. Stale and dated isn’t appealing to anyone. If there’s nothing compelling about your content people won’t stay as long as you might want them too and they’ll stick to what they’ve always known.

Create an experience for your followers that no one else can match and you’ll be rewarded by your follower count growing.

Realize Instagram is not Twitter

The last point you need to keep in mind when you’re giving Instagram a go is that it is not Twitter. What works on Twitter won’t always work on Instagram. The audience is different and you’ll have to be adaptable to succeed in that new environment. But, most of all you’ll want to have fun, because like LifeMathMoney says, “if you’re not having fun… What’s the point?”

Now that you know how you can maximize your reach across two social media platforms there’s no limit to how far you can grow your brand. Don’t settle for subpar screenshots and grainy images the next time you want share a killer tweet to Instagram. With the Insta-shot you just have to schedule your tweets and within minutes of them going live you’ll have amazing images to share on your Instagram feed.
