Let’s face it…captions are kind of a big deal.
When it comes to Instagram, engagement is the name of the game! And the more engagement you receive on a post, the more it will show up in people’s feeds 🤳🏼
So if you want your post to be seen by more people, your caption has to be…you guessed it…ENGAGING!
Here’s how to do it:
1️⃣) MAKE YOUR HEADLINE POP, LOCK, & DROP 💥 The first line of your caption needs to grab your audience’s attention and stop them dead in their scroll. So be sure to front-load your captions so they are captivating!
2️⃣) SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY 💃🏼 Make your brand’s voice shine! So before you post, read your caption out loud 🗯 Does it sound like you? Is it fun to read? If your voice isn’t behind it, your audience will notice. So make it authentically you and it will naturally be engaging!
3️⃣) CALL TO ACTION 📣 Invite your audience in and encourage them to comment by including a CTA. Asking a question at the end of your caption is a great place to start!
4️⃣) MAKE IT PRETTY 😍 Be sure to add line breaks and use emojis to make the caption easy (and FUN) to read!
5️⃣) TAG IT UP 📌 Add your location to increase your posts’ visibility, tag people/places/things in your photos (& mention them in the caption) to boost engagement, and use 11-20 relevant niche hashtags to connect with new peeps!
And just like that, you’ve got yourself a fine lookin’ IG caption 💞
While a lot goes into growing your Instagram, captions play a large roll in growing your community and increasing your engagement rate.
