Let spring images trigger your creativity
Images are obviously extremely important on Instagram. You need to grab your customers’ attention amid an avalanche of images online. If you don’t have your own professional image library, there are dozens of websites where you can find amazing free pictures.
Leverage the colors and light of the spring to share some bright and optimistic vibes! People love cheerful pictures and messages so you can use this to create branded hashtags. This way, people will not only engage with your business on Instagram, but also associate your brand with positivity in the long term.
Put some love into your spring captions
Avoid grey, boring captions. Whatever you do, do it with love and color! Great images are a MUST, but fantastic captions will do what images can’t. If you thought that Instagram was entirely visual, you just need to spend five minutes online to see how much users love to write long texts, tell stories, etc. While it’s true that an image is worth a thousand words, a thousand words add even more power to a stunning image.
