There are a couple best practices to follow when posting on Instagram:
-The first is to use high-quality images. This means using images that are clear and concise and convey the message you’re trying to get across.
-The second best practice is to use creative captions. This means coming up with clever, attention-grabbing titles for your photos that will make people want to stop and read what you have to say.
-Last but not least, another best practice is to post regularly. This doesn’t mean you have to post every day, but try to keep a consistent posting schedule so that people know when they can expect new content from you.

Here are a few best practices for posting on Instagram:

1. Post origin stories. If you're product-based, talk about how your company started and the people behind it. If you're service-based, talk about why you got into the industry, where you started, and any big changes along the way.
2. Personalize your posts. Go beyond selfies and provide a behind-the-scenes look at your life or work. This will help followers feel more connected to you as a person and not just a brand.
3. Use engaging visuals. This is vital for any Instagram post, but especially important if you want people to stop scrolling and pay attention to your posts!

When posting to Instagram, it's important to keep in mind the platform's distinctive features and optimize your posts accordingly.

For starters, because Instagram is a photo- and video-sharing platform, it's important to post high-quality images and videos that are both visually appealing and engaging. Additionally, since Instagram is a social media platform, it's important to post content that is relevant and interesting to your target audience.

In addition to posting quality content, it's also important to use effective hashtags in order to reach a larger audience and increase engagement. And lastly, be sure to monitor your analytics regularly in order to track the performance of your posts and adjust your strategy accordingly.

I think this will take a lot of effort and time. But in short: share information in carousel post, post when your audience is engaged + use relevant hashtags.

Post your business original images as they will present your real face to audience and also help to build trust with them so that they can convert your customers.
Reels are now trending, so do this for business branding.
There is right time for each day when users are active. Try to post on that time.
Always use trendy hashtags with your post.
Don't forget to share with your family and friend and followers to increase post visibility.

The suggestions provided encompass essential aspects of social media marketing, but the most crucial factor among them is authenticity. While original images and Reels enhance brand identity and visibility, their relevance to your audience is vital. Posting at optimal times and using trendy hashtags can increase reach, but quality content tailored to your audience's needs remains paramount. Lastly, while sharing with friends and family helps visibility, focusing on audience engagement and value creation is the key to sustained success.

Instagram is the best platform to increase the visibility of your product and site. To play well on this platform you need to post quality content, create reels to promote the service or product, and never hesitate to make engagement with people.

Also quality and continuity both hold equal values in the eyes of Social media algorithm.
You need to keep improving the quality of your content to get pushed forward.
People don't want to see same type of post again and again.

For effective Instagram posts, prioritize high-quality visuals, maintaining a consistent visual style, and varying content types. Establish a regular posting schedule and experiment with different posting times for optimal engagement. Craft engaging captions with calls-to-action, use a mix of relevant hashtags, and create a unique branded hashtag. Actively respond to comments to foster community, engage with other users in your niche, and explore Instagram Reels and IGTV for diverse content. Utilize Instagram Insights to analyze post performance, adapting your strategy based on audience trends. In summary, combine creativity, consistency, and engagement for successful Instagram posts.

Instagram recently made a major update to its internal algorithms. Many people didn't even notice it.
What happened before the update:
There was a "recent" posts section. New posts appeared there, displacing each other according to the principle - the new one is always the first.
For new Instagram users, it was the only free way to somehow make themselves known.
There is no such section now. That is, if you don't have subscribers who will view your new post, like it and write comments, then this post will never become popular. Even if you post masterpieces.
Why is this done? It's simple - so that users buy more official Instagram ads. 😖 But practice has shown that official Instagram advertising is ineffective.😱
Or pay bloggers to show you on their page. The efficiency is higher here, but it's still very expensive.😬
There is another way, the most effective. But I can't write about it here, because it will be an advertisement :)
