Writing effective captions for social media

GET THE MOST LIKES FROM YOUR INSTAGRAM POST


In this think of the whole picture. Although Instagram is a truly “visual” medium, it also allows up to 2200 characters of text per post. That is a lot, and comparable to Facebook, Tumblr. Enough characters to make a blog. There is a left-brained component, however visual it might get, because your have 20 characters from your caption that people browsing their Instagram feed will see. Hook them with a great image. That’s one way to go. You can also hook them with 20 characters that have their attention riveted. Both together is strongest. All humans are both left-brained and right-brained creatures. We prefer visual, and we also enjoy a good story.

There are two important components of every great Instagram post, and that is the picture and the copy in the caption. Master both, and you are way ahead of the curve.  I wrote another piece on how to write great captions for Instagram here.

Anthropomorphize your Images

When you talk about a thing or animal as if it were human, you’re anthropomorphizing it. The Easter Bunny is an anthropomorphized rabbit. If you’ve ever seen a dog in a sweater, that’s a small case of an owner anthropomorphizing his pet. A cartoon dog who talks is a bigger case of anthropomorphizing. Shel Silverstein’s book The Giving Tree anthropomorphizes the tree — the tree acts as if it were a person. It may seem kind of bizarre, but treating non-human things as human is a way of imagining another point of view.

And the important point here is that it works! on Instagram, just like this one..

Enlist the appropriate celebrity when creating picture quotes

  • This picture was posted on Instagram the day after Carrie Fisher passed away. In the context of mental health advocacy, the timing was impeccable.

Thank you for fighting on even when the battle seems endless & the struggle ever tiring. #MayTheForceBeWithYou #RIPcarriefisher Carrie Fisher was admired, among other things, for her wit as well as her #compassion and passionate dedication to the cause of #mentalhealthadvocacy. Here are some juicy quotes by her: “I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra” “At times, being #bipolar can be an all-consuming challenge, requiring a lot of stamina and even more courage, so if you’re living with this illness and functioning at all, it’s something to be proud of, not ashamed of. They should issue medals along with the steady stream of medication.” ~#CarrieFisher #BipolarWarrior #StigmaFighter #PrincessLeia #bipolardisorder #manicdepression #manicdepressive #psychosis #ImNotAshamed #stigmafree #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters

Stand for something or let your image symbolize a stance for a cause or a principle.

 

Use images that allow someone to project themselves into the image, like the one you see right below.

Include a call to action. Here are examples of sentences you could include in your caption or a comment on any of your Instagram posts.
