6) Utilize Instagram stories — You can use polls, Q&A, or you can just simply ask for suggestions regarding your business from the audience. This will help you to get quick and easy feedback from your audience. You can implement the new ideas and suggestions gathered from your Instagram stories.

7) Use a call-to-action — A call-to-action is a button on your Instagram profile through which anyone can directly contact you by clicking on that button. You can either use your Gmail or your contact no. in the call-to-action area. This will help build trust and show your professionalism.

8) Develop a content strategy — You should be regular and consistent when it comes to developing and posting content on your Instagram. More than quantity, the quality of your content is important. Therefore, content should be relevant, unique, attractive, professional, and something which the viewers can engage with and relate to. You can use a content calendar and implement a sound content strategy to generate a good lead.

9) Post regularly — If there are huge intervals between your posts then you might lose your connectivity with the audience. On the other hand, if you post too frequently, then your audience might stop focusing and giving attention to the posts as they would be overloaded with the content. Therefore, you should keep a pattern of posting content and decide a time interval in which you want to post the content. Finally, you should implement that pattern and be regular in posting the content.

10) Track your campaigns — Just posting and engaging with your audience will not fetch you anything if you don’t record, examine, and analyze the results of your campaigns. The main reason for organizing campaigns is to get proper outcomes.
