Choose an Appealing Gallery Layout
Pick Colors that Reflects Brand’s Philosophy
Some big companies and designers maintain the Instagram gallery black-and-white, which looks very stylish and minimalist. Discover the latest trends in Graphic Design if you don’t have a brand book yet.
Font Consistency across Instagram Profile
Choose one from the brand book or the broad collection of free Google fonts but make sure the fonts for all the textual pictures are same.
Keep the Similar Style for all the Posts
Designers who work with Instagram grid develop a template for the general type of content – entertaining, engaging, informative, etc. Use the same filters when you’re editing the pictures.
Plan the Layout using the Scheduled Posting

Be Consistent in Uploading Stories
Add Stories Several Times a Day
IG bumps your Story to the front every time you upload new media, so the most effective time range is every 2-3 hours. Add location and hashtags to boost the audience.
Focus on Animation
Videos, GIFs, animated ads work better than static content.
Show what people are curious about – sensational news, live streaming, manufacturing process, etc. Make polls and check stats to measure the engagement after.
- Post on Stories automatically. For example, Insta Captain Post Planner allows users to plan not just feed but Stories too. So, you save time every day when planning in advance.
- Broad meaning tags, like #happy, #love, #girl – they won’t generate leads.
- Too promotional hashtags.
- Irrelevant to your strategy
Make the Captions Appealing
Share Personal Insights
People love encouraging stories like “before and after.” All of us are afraid to fail; an honest content contrasting to glamorous images works the best. Write a success story; don’t hesitate to add or eliminate some details.
Ask Open Questions
Don’t talk only about yourself; express the interest in your followers. At the end of each post, ask a question to them about their experience with the same. Also, you can make a poll, sharing several options in a carousel.
Ask for Advice
