Instagram marketing is all about first impression. Posting passionless images every alternate day will not improve your social media ranking.

Recognized among the most popular social networks in the World, it is important to use the right strategies to boost your brand presence and increase your fan followings. It involves a lot of hard work when it comes to visual representation, since the product needs to be showcased flawlessly to audience.

In this blog post, we will discuss about Instagram captions, ideal limit to create a compelling caption, tips on creating a caption and some inspirational quotes that can be used on your Instagram post to generate more engagement.

What is an Instagram Caption?

It is all about perception when it comes to Instagram marketing. The quality of the image and the message conveyed through it can be a differentiating factor between you and your competitors. It is all about engagement and generating interest of the audience which eventually helps you in increasing your fan following.

While it is a lot easier to convey your message through a picture, yet when it comes to Instagram, it becomes way easier to express yourself by adding relevant content or a story about the event. This descriptive content that is used to explain, elaborate, and inspire the viewers by adding quotes, emojis, hashtags or a short note beneath your image is called an Instagram Caption.

What is Instagram caption limit?

While a great Instagram caption adds relevance to your image, beguiles the audience and builds your profile’s character, knowing your optimal character count is ideal before you start drafting a caption. A compelling caption created with the right set of words can lead to more engagement thereby increasing your overall business on this amazing social media page. 

Currently, Instagram has capped its caption limit to 2200 characters and a maximum of 30 hash tags including those shared in comments. This being said, it is highly recommended to limit your captions to 120 characters and not more than 5 hash tags to captivate attention and making it easy to read. Furthermore, a long descriptive content generally creates boredom while a short and elaborate caption is visible in the feeds making them more engaging and worthwhile.

How to write a compelling Instagram caption?

Best practices and the level of engagement any posts receive are now the determining factor for your social media rankings. The visibility of the post increases furthermore if there is relatively more engagement as compared with any similar content. Of course that doesn’t mean you need to stuff your captions with hash tags and long descriptive content loaded with keywords. The key is to understand your audience personas and engage with them by providing a pertinent content that builds their interests.

  1. Add Value

You need to put in relevant information describing the image. Share the facts and figures in case of an infographic, location and importance in case of a historical site, or your thoughts in case of any other image. Brainstorm and search for several compelling Instagram captions before selecting the final one. Make up your mind and decide the theme of your post, once you have finalized the theme try to create a caption in the same tone. Try to utilize the character limit and provide a blend of posts, a short and sweet caption at times and a long story describing the chain of events in other instances.

  1. Call to Action

Each post should be uploaded with preset rationales and reasons.  You need to be sure about your final goals and that should reflect in the uploaded post. Be sure to add information like website details, product information and contact details to further engage your audiences. The key is to create a two way conversation which will eventually increase the likelihood of your posts being recommended by Instagram to others.       

  1. Participate & Engage

Nobody likes a monotonous page; try to use different kinds of emojis and fonts while drafting a caption. Encourage your audience to participate by commenting and tagging their friends. Likewise, research on less competitive hash tags to further increase your audience reach. Along these lines, posting your images by giving special shout outs creates more awareness about your brand.

  1. Use Quotes

Using quotes to convey your message is the finest way to create a compelling Instagram caption. A motivational and inspirational quote that is relatable to the post or image usually tends to increase your brand engagement among the audience. Furthermore, these quotes add more value to the caption making them more interesting.
