After testing and measuring all our strategies, we have shortlisted five strategies which work the best:-

1. Using Images for storytelling, not just blasting your brands

We will talk about Starbucks here; I am sure you will all see plenty of their cup/mug images on their post; they focus mainly on what people are doing while having their coffee. For example, people will read the

ing book, work with their laptops, or even chill at the beach. This is precisely what we want, be subtle and focus on your customer rather than your brand.

2. Make sure you know why you are posting the post.

Create a storyboard and post those images which will explain your story. Don’t post anything because that will not benefit the business/brand. No matter which category of your post, post only something relevant and important and always has a plan behind each post.

3. Don’t post too often in a day

You can post a couple of times a day, but not many times; when you post many times and flood your follower’s feed, they will unfollow you. To find out the exact right amount to post will take a bit of trial and error as it depends on your audience. We would suggest posting only three times a day. You can use apps like Canva, Photogrid, Picframe and many others apps to create a photo collage or some photo effect; this will draw followers to your Instagram account.

4. If possible, have one name for all the business accounts you have on social media

Having one name on all social media will help you in two ways. Firstly, it will be easy for the customer to find your business on all the social media, and if there is a need to research your business, they will know how to look for you. Secondly, this will make hashtag creation and usage more effective. Assuming someone Hashtag your page on Instagram, the chances of it appearing on Facebook, Twitter, or Linked In are very high.

5. Hashtag ‘D” thing in social media

Always remember to create a hashtag for your brands or business. You can search for “Best Hashtag for {your industry}” in Google and choose some of it, at least post 10-20 hashtags. 

Under the search area in that particular social media, when someone searches using those hashtags, your business name will appear because you have those hashtags.

Bottom line: As the old proverb goes—a picture is worth 1,000 words. It’s still true today, but with Instagram, a picture may also be worth 1,000 “likes,” retweets, and shares!
