1. POSTS
  • Quality of your content – up your game or change it, good quality photos get better engagement.
  • Create captivating captions – make the first 5 words count and use emojis. ☺️
  • Post often – minimum 1 post per day. You can use tools like Planoly & Hootsuite to schedule in advance.
  • Hashtags – use your 30 hashtag allowance, add your own unique hashtag & and any that are relevant to the image, not the caption!
  • Get to know your followers – spend time responding to comments, DM the people who like your posts often, engage with them and show that you care.
  • Post videos – videos get 1200% more engagement than images.
2. STORIES
  • Post consistently – post stories every day, but don’t overload, 5-15 per day is a good number.
  • Make them beautiful – keep them on brand and create storyboards.
  • Use gifs – everyone loves stickers, find some that match your branding and then use often, people will eventually associate that sticker to you. ☺️
  • Add a location and use hashtags – get views from people who aren’t already following you.
  • Use the poll, quiz, and question stickers – these are the secret weapon to increase engagement on your stories. Use them to your advantage and get to know your audiences likes and dislikes.
  • Encourage viewers to DM – getting your audience to DM shows they’re interested. This means your posts will rank higher in their feeds.
  • Collaborate – share stories/posts from others that your audience may like or reshare. Don’t forget to tag friends and customers too!
