Grow & Connect With Your Audience with Instant Access to These Instagram Templates
Use These Templates for Your Own Business, Your Clients, or Your Customers
Over 200 million people sign into their Instagram accounts each month. These users contribute over 1.6 billion “likes” to the 50+ million photos that are uploaded each day. But that’s not all the good news…brands on Instagram typically see 15-20 times more engagement than they do on other social media networks like Facebook or Twitter. The tone and the content on Instagram is vastly different from Facebook and Twitter.
While you may see plenty of political rants, arguments, and offensive statements on other platforms, Instagram’s audience is more relaxed.
These users are typically focused on posting feel-good content. The most popular hashtags on the network include…
Best Practices for Brands on Instagram
Hashtags aren’t popular on every social network. People rarely use them on Facebook but love them on Twitter. So, should your brand use hashtags on Instagram?
Yes, you should. Instagram limits hashtags to 30 per caption. That number may sound high but many users opt for 5-15 hashtags per photo. Not only can you use dozens of hashtags, but they’re also very popular on Instagram. Users frequently search using hashtags so they can discover new content.
But keep in mind that Instagram doesn’t want you spamming. Don’t add hashtags to your photo simply because they receive a lot of traffic. Only use a tag like “#dogsofinstagram” if there’s actually a dog in your photo or if your image is related to the topic.
You should also use your own branded hashtag with your photos. This makes it easy for people who are already fans of your company or product to find you easily on Instagram. It’s also a terrific way to inspire others to post about your products.
When it comes to posting on Instagram, the timing is important. Most brands don’t see a lot of engagement on Sundays or Mondays. This doesn’t mean you can’t post on these days. But you want to save your very best content for later in the week, when it will be seen by more of your fans.
Tuesday-Friday posts usually results in more traffic, likes, and comments. So, this is when you want to post news about a new sale or product release to get more traction.
Typically, the morning hours (5am - 7am) are good times to post. Then there’s a lull for a few hours. Engagement increases again around 11am until 5pm.
Depending on your niche, you may still see a good bit of traffic later in the evening. For example, if you’re in the parenting niche, you may see another boost of traffic around 8 or 9 when busy parents have put the kids in bed.
One thing that sets Instagram apart is that links in your captions aren’t actual links. Users can’t click through that link to get to your website. Instead, users have to navigate to your profile and click the link in your bio. Many people use the phrase “link in bio” so their followers know how to find the content they’re posting about.
Most marketers and brands use this link to drive traffic back to their main website. That’s a good idea but it’s not the best use for this space.
Instead, update your bio link and replace it with the one page on your site that you want your Instagram users to visit. If you’re uploading a photo to promote your new blog post, then change the link in your Instagram bio to that post. It might be challenging to do this but it’s a simple tactic to direct traffic where you need it to go.
