    I think far too many people fail to realize that you have to engage if you want engagement. I posted on my business account the other day that it’s called ‘social’ media for a reason… These platforms aren’t just a soapbox for us to make announcements to our followers, but rather an opportunity to be SOCIAL and connect with one another.

    Some great tips here, Corinne. And yes, it’s called social media for a reason! I don’t especially enjoy Instagram, I prefer Twitter and my blog but I know Insta has its place too. I hadn’t heard of the best times to post app, I’ll have to look into that, thank you! Lisa x

    These are all great tips. I haven’t posted for a while now and rarely open the app these days, but I never expect a huge amount of engagement if I haven’t been posting and engaging myself. I think a lot of people forget that it’s one of those platforms where you only really get back what you put in and just expect their photos to take off x

    Great tips! My engagement has massively increased this year since I started using Insta how I wanted to, writing more longer and meaningful captions and engaging more on other people’s content! xxx

    Oh my gosh I needed this post. I’ve been ignoring my instagram lately and now trying to figure out how to get back into it when nothing is happening. I’m definitely guilty of the first point though, so at least that should be easy to rectify. Some great tips here – thank you!

    Do you know if there is a way of finding out about relevant hashtags other than trying to search for ones you’re making up in the hope they exist?

    Great tips! Totally agree about engaging more – it has been boosted my engagement recently and I’ve had some great conversations with new people because of it!

    I need to take your advice on some of these things. There is a girl on instagram it’s thebrooklynjolley and she made a post awhile ago about how every day she has a little sticky note and she makes a tally each time she comments on someone’s post. She has a goal to comment on 10 people’s posts every day. And I think that is an awesome idea and goal to have. Not only would you be helping yourself out but also helping others. I’m going to start implementing things that you posted here though. Thank you!!

      I agree, that is a great idea! I engage every morning while having breakfast. 🙂

    Nice post. I try engaging with others through commenting and reposting.
