How to Manage Your Instagram Accounts
You now have the best set of Ice Cream Day hashtags for Instagram, but it will take more than a pretty picture, a write up, and hashtags to bring you Instagram success.
Posting on a consistent basis is a must. If you can’t post daily, then you should try to post every other day. If you can’t post every other day, then every three days. The more you post, the more engagement you will get and the higher the chances that your brand or business will be discovered by potential customers on Instagram. The easiest way to make sure that you post on a consistent basis is to schedule your posts on an Instagram scheduling calendar such as Socialdraft. You schedule your posts with those gorgeous hashtags, we SMS you with the image and write up at the time you want to post.
Engaging your audience is the final piece of the formula. Once you post, set aside some time to engage the people who are creating content around your hashtags. Like their posts, follow these people, and you will notice that your post will come up higher on the feed and that your engagement and ROI will increase.
