How to write an Instagram caption?
The most important thing to remember about captions is that they have to speak to the content you’re sharing and to your audience.
Because captions are cut off in users’ feeds after a few lines of text, you need to convey your key point or call to action right away.
Here a few questions to consider when writing your caption.
👉What are the qualities and values you want your brand to embody?
👉What adjectives describe your brand?
Your answers will give you a better idea of what language to use in your caption and which emotions you want to convey through your posts.
It is obvious that there is a lot of detail that goes into writing engaging Instagram captions. People don’t get engagement because they are some kind of wizards, they simply know what they are doing.
