Your Instagram efforts are going to bear more fruit if you can direct your marketing efforts more appropriately and in the right direction in which users are thinking.

#1 Customize images to your audience liking

 Watch the kind of snaps, your audience is uploading, and then post similar pictures in your Instagram account. For example, if your brand is selling mascara, then it pays to have images that focus on the styling of the eyebrow uploaded by users.

#Enhance your photos

It pays to put up bright and shiny pictures on Instagram as they do have a real effect on the quality of response you get from users. After all engagement is everything and using image editing tools is not a sin.

# Avoid generic images

Generic images do not create that lasting impact and a better way is to create graphics which highlight your brand attributes. Square shaped images are just perfect to create the right effect.

# Use text overlays on images

Keeping images empty without captions may not have the kind of effect that you are planning to have.  Content can hit the right chord with users directly, especially if the conversation starts with a graphic or a quote. Avoid too many graphics also.
