Does Instagram have you feeling stuck lately? Are you spinning your wheels trying to figure out how to “crack the code” simply just to get noticed? If you’re not getting much love on your posts lately, your followers might be getting bored with the “same old, same old”.
It’s time to do something different.
Need help? Keep reading!
Today I’m sharing 4 different types of posts that will be a sure hit with your followers. Hopefully this will inspire you to think outside the box, implement some new content ideas, and improve your engagement!
1. Make “share-worthy” content
Yes, I know “share-worthy” can be pretty subjective. What I mean when I say “share-worthy” is something that you think will “hit a chord” with your followers. You want to trigger something in them that will make them share it with people they know.
2. Re-introduce yourself with fun facts
Many bloggers and small businesses use this little trick on Instagram all the time. Post a picture of yourself along with a little “re-introduction” and fun facts about yourself. It’s a good excuse to pop into your feed and share more details about YOU that others probably don’t know about you. Even better, ask them to share fun facts about themselves so you can get to know THEM better.
3. Be in your photos
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: People want to see other people. Period. Whether you’re a photographer, foodie, travel blogger, etc, your followers are going to want to see YOU. And this doesn’t mean it’s a beauty contest. People will naturally want to interact with photos more when they can see the person behind the captions.
4. Do a giveaway
Partner with a brand or buy something you love (doesn’t have to be big) and put on a giveaway for your followers. This almost ALWAYS catches the attention of your followers because PEOPLE. LOVE. FREE. STUFF. And don’t be afraid to ask your favorite brands if they’d be interested in partnering with you. It’s a win-win for both of you!
