When it comes to marketing on Instagram, the goal is common for all types of businesses irrespective of their industry and that is to boost engagement and increase their brand awareness.

If you are wondering why your high-quality visuals and routine sharing of Instagram posts are not making any dent to your marketing campaign on the platform, it might be because you have not yet considered using the hashtags strategically. Hashtags are the greatest weapon in the arsenal of Instagram that allows your content to be easily accessed and identified by your followers and non-followers who are looking for similar and relevant information. Hashtags are just like your keywords for SEO, which makes your content visible and drives more traffic to your site. In 2018, it is critical to developing your customized hashtags that are crisp in nature, giving your audience a reason to use it whenever they mention something regarding your brand.
After all, hashtags are not only limited to making your content more discoverable, they are also meant to help you in building your Instagram community. For this, you will need to research and create your own branded hashtags.
Attuning Your Posts with Captivating Captions
Furnishing your posts with beautiful caption will not only increase the value of your post, but it will also generate a feeling that you are trying your best to engage with your followers and solving their queries. Make it your habit to infuse a compelling caption within your content that will persuade your followers to come and interact. This will boost your engagement rate and you will be blessed with more followers for Instagram. For more engagement, you can organize your posts with the caption conferring a question and answer round.
Optimize the Carousel Feature
It was not very long when Instagram introduced an eye-catching feature in its interface in the form of multiple grid images or the carousel feature. This feature allows the users to post multiple images in one grid or carousel format. The carousel feature has made Instagram posts more like a gallery of multiple images that allows your followers to slide through the images one after another. Using the carousel feature will make your content marketing strategy more flexible than ever.
2018 promises to be the year of more focus on social media and Instagram is turning out to be the channel standing at the forefront. Hence, make sure that you have geared your marketing campaign with the advanced strategies.
