What Do You Want Increased Engagement on Instagram?

Rock solid, powerful engagement on Instagram makes the algorithm HAPPY. That’s why you want engagement on your Insta feed.

But that’s not the only reason.

Engagement means your audience is drawn to your posts, your words, your brand–you. It says something. Often, a lot of something about audience trust or interest.

Building a business, growing a brand, or attracting students or clients requires interest.

Engagement means your audience likes what you do. It appreciates that you show up. That you deliver quality content. Consistently. Rinse and repeat.

So, let’s dive into 5 types of posts that you can deliver to increase engagement!

Types of Posts To Grow Instagram Engagement

1. Reels

Reels are practically magic for engagement right now.

Will they be forever? Who knows. But if you like to make them, make them! If they aren’t your thing, don’t stress. You can always grow your Instagram with other types of posts. Reels, however, are a powerful way to engagement your audience.

2. Comparisons

Posts that compare are great for social media engagement. Think transformative or transformation posts. You know, those before and after posts. Or “do this vs. don’t do that” kind of Insta posts.

3. Stories.

Instagram stories are great for driving engagement. This includes driving traffic back to your website or blog. In addition, posting on your story regularly can get you more profile visits.

How to boost engagement with stories? Don’t shy away from using polls and stickers on your stories. For example, use those link stickers generously.

Go get that engagement!

So, tell me? Are you ready to go get that Instagram engagement?

Of course, right?

Engagement is a key to growing your following on social media. But most importantly, increased engagement plays a mega role in growing your business. And if you are growing a yoga business, that’s a BIG deal.

    Thank you for this information. I don’t do any of these things. I need to learn/work on this. I am new to the business side of Instagram. Not that I do any of this on the personal side. I saved so I can refer back.
