Captions for your Business’s Instagram account need to be out of the ordinary. While it can take under 5 minutes to select and edit a photo, it can feel like forever to create a caption worthy of being published on the Gram.
Forget everything you think you know about caption copy, and check out these 6 examples that will change your life for the better.
1. The Call-To-Action
They say that your engagement stats on Social Media are King, and they’re right for a reason. Engagement is a way for your followers to show that they’re active and responsive to your brand.
The best way to invite engagement is to charm your followers with a call-to-action. Tease your followers with a ‘what do you think we’re launching next’, or encourage them to tag their friends.

2. The Mood Maker
The best way to influence your audience is by changing their mood, whether they laugh out loud, or feel warm on the inside.
Write like you’re speaking aloud to a friend, and add an emoji or hashtag as the icing on top. A mood-invoking image helps too.

3. The Quote
A quote can make or break your caption. Say goodbye to Coco and Marilyn, and think outside the box. It’s refreshing to be authentically weird and quirky!

4. The Celebrator
Celebrate your wins and showcase your work, because what else is social media for?

5. The Product
There are hundreds of variations of the same product on the internet, but only 1 or 2 that stand out.
By curating your brand voice, you’ll be able to allude to the benefits of any product, and make your wares desired.

Of course, it helps to have a cohesive marketing strategy across all aspects of Instagram, including influencer campaigns.
6. The Educator
As part of your marketing strategy, it’s only natural that you want to educate your followers on topics in your niche.
Translate your tips into plain English, and talk to your audience, not at them. Jargon is the ultimate deterrent.
