Create Instagram posts if you want to take your business to the next level. Let’s take a look at what you’re missing with Instagram.

Post at the right time

View your Instagram audience statistics. You see that bar graph at the bottom that will tell you what days and times your audience is online. Post on the days your audience is most active.

Make carousels

These are big hits for the algorithm for 2 reasons:

First, it engages people by forcing them to stay on the post longer,

Second, Instagram will boost the post twice. The first time, the user will see the first photo and if they didn’t interact with the post, they will see it a second time but with the second photo, you will get more bang for your buck. The best type of Instagram post carousel is the one that shares information.

Create shareable Instagram posts

Instagram’s algorithm rewards posts that are widely shared or saved. When users feel like they’ve learned something from your post, they’re more likely to pass it on and maybe even share it on their story, boosting your Instagram posts even more.

You can also create posts with relevant or humorous quotes that your audience can only show their friends.

Take care of your audience… and not others

No, no. I mean more than you think. You’ve heard the expression “if you sell to everyone, you sell to no one”. Well, that applies here too. So make sure you know your audience: age, gender, education level, everything.

Respond to their comments. Speaking of which, if you’re seeing low returns on your posts, maybe you’re not engaging with your audience before and after the post. Fifteen minutes before your post goes live, here’s what you should do. Go to the hashtags you plan to use on the post, leave authentic comments especially on the first ten posts that resonate with you.

Be authentic

Once you post your Instagram posts, send a DM to everyone who has followed you since your last post. Simply thank them for being there and being part of the community.

Use SEO where it matters

You should use keywords in your post captions, in your bio, and in your old text. This is an important element that many people ignore. The text is for the visually impaired and helps describe the content of the image.

It’s a goldmine for keywords and helps others.


You don’t make your stories interactive. The best way to get your stories up in your audience’s news feed is to get people to engage with it. So use features like polls, quizzes and the slider to get people to interact.

Tip: Post an average of five stories a day and not all at once. Every time you post a story, it goes up in the feed. So space each story out by a few hours.

Use video and show your face

I know we can’t all be that comfortable in front of a camera, it takes a little practice. Talking to your audience is good. Plus, Instagram’s algorithm loves video. Specifically, the pros on Instagram recommend posting 3-5 videos per week.

So, you’ve got a bunch of content to do and now you’re going to have more ideas.
