How to use an Instagram caption generator to boost likes and shares for your posts

When we think of Instagram, pictures and videos typically come to mind first, right? While visuals rule the land of the ‘gram, Instagram captions still play a huge role in the success of a post.

What kind of power does a well-written, engaging caption have? We’re talking more likes, comments, shares, follows, and even website visits. Instagram has its own algorithm that decides when and how to push certain content, so nailing it on the copy front is essential for the performance of your posts.

Instagram Caption Best Practices

Put your value proposition at the beginning of your message. It’s important not to make your followers have to search for what it is they should care about when they reach your post.

Keep engagement in mind. Instagram currently doesn’t allow you to include links directly in captions, so it’s helpful to have verbiage that encourages the user to act (E.g. “Click the link in bio,” “Tag a friend,” “Save for later”).

Have a strong CTA that clearly states what action you wish the user to take (and why it’s worth their time).

Be relatable, not salesy. An audience won’t resonate with sales jargon, so keep language casual, yet persuasive. 

Never neglect your brand voice. Regardless of what you’re promoting, it’s important to keep your tone and style consistent throughout your copy.

Complement your visuals. Since Instagram is a photo-first platform, keep in mind that the users’ focus will most likely be on whatever visual you have chosen.

Don’t be afraid of hashtags! Hashtags are an essential part of expanding your reach on Instagram. And while hashtags help new audiences see your content, it’s important to use them strategically. Use a mix of some of the top Instagram hashtags and more niche ones directly related to your brand or business.

Keep character count in mind. Just like any other social platform, Instagram has rules on how much copy each post can contain. The metrics for IG are:

  • 2200 characters
  • 125 characters before truncation
  • 30 hashtags per post
  • 1000 characters for one direct message

Step 4: Choose the Best Caption Based On Its Score

Each Instagram caption variation made by our Instagram caption maker comes with a Predictive Performance Score. This score determines the performance potential of your copy. In our Score Panel, we also provide age and gender analytics, helping you decide which variation will best resonate with your target audience.

Step 5: Experiment with Various Caption Elements

It can also be beneficial to play around with different caption styles and approaches. Try different lengths (the ideal length seems to be between 138 to 150 characters); include different hashtags; and throw in a few useful emojis here and there.

    When i discovered anyword

    When i discovered anyword, it was literally a dream coming true. I run a social media marketing agency and writing / creating good sales copy is one of those crucial tasks, which OFTEN takes a lot of time and can be frustrating at the same time. But why do i need it? Because for each client, good sales copy determines almost 99% of each of my clients successes. The first time i used anyword (trail version), it took me 10 minutes to create copy that transcended my expectations! It has an incredible easy interface! I was hooked in a second! i Love it. Thank you Anyword
