THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO WRITING AN INSTAGRAM CAPTION
If you thought Instagram was all about pictures, you need to think again! Instagram is as much about cool captions as it is about interesting photography. Just like “Manners maketh man”, “Captions maketh a picture on Instagram”! Sure a picture can say 1000 words but add a caption and the figure reaches infinity.
So what does it really take to write an amazing Instagram caption? We’ve got some pointers to help you.
1. All hail Alliteration
If you’re a master of Alliteration, you’re a master of Instagram captions. Summer sailor stripes, White Wonderland, Throwback Thursday are all glorious winners of the Instagram Alliteration caption writing contest. And here’s another tip to remember when trying to alliterate your IG caption – keep it simple, short and sweet.
2. Funny Side Up
Got a funny bone? Instagram is the best place to flaunt it (after Twitter, of course). Take a cue from Blake Lively’s IG account, every picture of hers has a story to tell…a pretty funny at that. We bet you to browse through her IG feed without breaking into a smile and falling for the funny & pretty woman’s charm. So are you ready to be the Seinfeld of Instagram? Expect millions of followers at the least!
3. Emojify me
What do you do when you run out of words? Use an emoji, that’s right! Emojis are an easy pass to write a cool Instagram caption, but mind you using the right number and kind of emoji is of high significance. Too many emojis' in one caption is an absolute no, we’d say keep the number under 4 and you should be good.
4. Quote the famous
Using powerful quotes that match the sentiment of your pictures is a great tactic to connect with your followers. Who doesn’t like a good old inspirational quote but put some thought into this and don’t just pick up any random quote for your pictures. There are many Instagram accounts with massive followings that rely on the power of quotes. We’dsay use the quotes to inspire and motivate your followers and not just to up your number game because after all content is king and if you’ve got good content, you’ll be the king at whatever you do.
