1 - Ask your users a questionBy asking your followers questions, you will be giving them the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas with you on certain topics. This concept has many advantages, it helps you increase the comment interactions with your account, the thoughts shared by your audience may help you come up with new ideas and perhaps look at things from a different perspective. It may also help you come up with better content in the future, and most importantly, you'll get to know your followers more on a personal level and vice versa.
Examples of direct questions that you may ask:
Do you like ...?
Would you buy ...?
What's the best ...?
Have you seen ...?
Who's interested in ...?
2 - Conduct an AMAAMA stands for "Ask Me Anything".
This concept creates an opportunity for you to directly engage with your audience so they can get to know you more, or gain knowledge from you concerning whatever topic you'd want them to ask you about.
3 - TutorialIt's always good to share with others things you are good at, and show them how to do them in a proper way. You can also provide certain tips on almost any topic. This concept would attract your followers and keep them interested in your account, after all "Power is gained by sharing knowledge, not hoarding it".
4 - Before and afterInstagram gives you the opportunity to share posts through your account. Take advantage of it to show your followers the progress you're making in life; in other words, show them how some things are changing over time for the better with you. This could inspire most of them in a positive way, and will push them to make progress in their own lives.
5 - Go behind the scenesLet your audience see what goes on behind the scenes instead of showing them the usual view of your life/ business through planned posts or finished products. This concept will keep them entertained, will humanize you/ your brand/ your company and will help you build trust with your audience.
6- Share your mistakesSharing personal experiences with others is very important, whether they were successful or not. At the end of the day, no one is perfect but what really matters is that you talk about your mistakes and then show your followers how you succeeded eventually, or let them know what this experience has taught you.
7 - Give a throwbackYou can always share an old post/ upload an old picture whenever you are running out of photos and don't have time to take more. It’s always fun to travel back in time for a bit, isn’t it?
