Let people know what country your visiting, what event you're at or if you are local to them.
2. Be Real
Give people the inside scoop on how you're feeling or what you're up to. Share a quick video or text post about it, treat it like a vlog.
3. Use a Poll
Get & track engagement by asking your audience a question. Would I buy A or B? Should I go out tonight Yes or No? Etc.
4. Take people behind the scenes
People love raw and uncut and they especially love a sneek peek of what goes on behind the scenes of a business. Share what you're working on, your daily grind, your silly co-workers, whatever your 'normal' looks like to you.
Put out the good word! Get people excited about your new product, service, giveaway or blog post.
6.Give a shout out
Tagging other people (@mentioning) in your stories, or on Instagram posts in general, is a great way to gain more engagement and give the person you're shouting out some extra exposure at the same time. One option: Take a screen shot of someones feed that you admire and give them a little love!
7.Send People to your profile
Screen shot your feed featuring your most current post. Overlay text with a short description of what your post is about; and using the drawing tool, circle your post from the screenshot to identify which post you are referring to.
8.Bring a standard image to life
Take a somewhat interesting photo from your camera roll, or even upload a stock image and give it some character. Add GIF'S, upload it to HYPE TYPE to give it some fun text and make it eye catching and interesting.
9.Try theme days
Picking a theme day(s) to share with your audience is a fun way to engage that your followers will come to expect an enjoy. Eg: "Fitness Tip Friday's." This will also give you motivation to create engaging content and give you a schedule to uphold.
10.Host a live Q & A
Going live is a great way to get people interested in what you are sharing. If you get a lot of repeat questions about your business or service or are launching a new product and want to get people involved in the process, try hosting a live Q & A session to build awareness around it.
