Getting the most from your Instagram

Here are four great techniques for your business to get the most out Instagram.

 

Tip one: post between the hours of 9 p.m. and 8 a.m. Market research shows that this is the best time to post and most people check their Instagram in the morning, which means, they get to see the oldest and most engaged with posts from the night before. You can always use an app to schedule your posts ahead of time.

Tip two: geo-tag your location. If you want to maximize your engagement, geo-tagging your photos and short videos in your Instagram story can help. It encourages other Instagram users to check out posts that have been posted in their general vicinity.

Connect your Facebook with your Instagram. Kill two birds with one stone. Oftentimes, we like to post our best photos to Instagram, why not post those to Facebook too, and to save yourself the trouble, you can link your Facebook account to your Instagram account, so that every time you post from Instagram it automatically posts to Facebook.

And our last tip, tip number four: engage with your competitor’s audience. Now, you’ll have to tread carefully with this one. You can do this by following the few followers that follow your competitors. Seek out other businesses in your niche. You can also engage with their followers in the comments section. Go ahead and try these tips yourself, and make sure you let us know if you’ve tweaked any of our techniques to better work for you and your business.
