Published on Apr 17, 2020 | Updated on Mar 24, 2022

Instagram posts are trending these days. People spend hours on this social networking site and create almost tiny segmented worlds of their own on this social site. If you ask me about what I do on Insta, I will say, 70% chilling out and 30% marketing. Interestingly, that 70% ‘chilling out’ part often drives insane marketing results for me.

Don’t believe it, right. Okay no worries, today I will explain you which types of Instagram posts you can use for the maximum sharing without sounding (or looking salesy at all).

You definitely need to design well

choose your design elements smartly, write a great message on that. But that is not all. You should select your topics for Instagram posts very smartly. If you manage to do so, people will engage. History testifies that social media users share engaging materials with friends and among your social community members. In fact, Instagram is the second most engaged social networking site (After Facebook).

There lies the trick. You need to balance your ‘wish’ and ‘way’ to present something that you want to share. In that way, you will be able to make your followers happy. Once they are happy, there will be no need to tell them to buy or subscribe to your product. They will automatically engage with your brand. That is what you always wanted, right? In fact, that is a beautifully subtle way of branding, right? But, how to impress them with your Instagram posts? Relax, I have 5 sure-shot elements to help you in the process. 

A hint of inspiration through motivational quotes…

Trust me, you do not even need to think, who your target is. A bit of motivation is acceptable to anyone and everyone. In fact, it is needed for people from every demography. So, just find a suitable image for a beautiful quote. Combine both on a design and win hearts with your post. These are often very widely circulated and shared.

Recently, one of the most popular Instagram profiles sharing positive motivational quotes has clocked over 19,800,000 followers to their credit. This shows how enthusiastically people check out Instagram posts with inspirational messages/ motivational quotes.
