Want to know the secret to beating Instagram’s latest algorithm change? Would you really like to know when is the best time to post to Instagram? It’s quite simple and here is how. The algorithm cares about how much engagement your Instagram post gets and how quickly you get that engagement. If a post goes out when 98% of your followers are online, you increase your chance of accumulating likes very quickly. If a post gets a lot of likes and comments shortly after being posted, Instagram recognizes the post as quality content and shows your post to even more followers. Each account is unique and will require careful consideration to hack the algorithm change and increase your reach to get more likes and followers. So how do you find the best time to post on Instagram for your account? Unfortunately, there isn’t a single best time to post, but here are a few tips to help you reach the biggest Instagram audience possible.
To create and maintain a popular online social media campaign as we do as a digital marketing agency you should consistently post top-quality, innovative and intriguing content. And that’s where Instagram’s Story takeovers are a great strategy to add to your social media toolbox. To put it simply for now before I go into further detail, an Instagram takeover is defined as a user or brand taking over another user’s Instagram account for a specific period to post their own content. It’s a win-win strategy because two brands or people get exposure and can expand your Instagram account with fresh and engaging posts with user-generated content and the hosted account can tap into a new audience as well, so yeah it’s a sure win win!
Adding documentary style interviews into your social media strategy is a great way to increase engagement and impressions because video content is not only a great way to drive organic traffic, but statistically, social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined, according to Smallbiztrends. From on-the-fly live interviews at various Detroit events to scheduled and produced interviews, Social Motto regularly incorporates interviews into our arsenal of creative content. For one, people have the attention span of a goldfish. It’s highly unlikely that they will actually finish the video. According to 2060 Digital, Instagram videos that receive the most comments typically average about 26 seconds in length. Cut out the brown lettuce (the parts that aren’t vital and bring the video down) and just highlight the best bits. Consider uploading the full video to YouTube and offering a link to the full video in the copy if you really want to publish the full video. Secondly, platforms like Twitter and Instagram have a limit on how long a video post can be. Keeping social media interviews short and sweet automatically optimize them for all platforms, making scheduling a much easier task.
