Use popular hashtags
The most popular Instagram hashtags include: #tbt (throwback Thursday), #instadaily, #potd (photo of the day) and #instagood.
Ask questions in photo captions
This not only drives likes, but also creates comments.
Post at the right time
Research into when your target users are active on Instagram. The most popular time to post according to ‘Simply Measured’ is Wednesday between 5pm and 6pm.
Hold a competition
Instagram is one of the best platforms to host a photo contest on. You can make the competition specific to your industry.
Don’t show people the same images that you use in advertisements; they want to see snap shots of what’s going on behind the scenes. Show the business’ personality by introducing team members and what they get up to at work.
