How to increase your engagement with the removal of Instagram’s like button.

Do you still have the Instagram like feature on your account?


If so, not for long! Instagram will completely get rid of this feature.


Canada and so many countries have rolled out with this feature already.  


Here are 3 tips on how to still get engagement on your Instagram account regardless of what changes Instagram rolls out


1. Post polls and ask questions on your stories


The more people that engage on your stories lets Instagram know that you are posting valuable content. When you are posting your morning cup of coffee or green tea, have your audience interact and have fun with the story: quiz them on what you’re drinking.


2. Post meaningful stories every 3-5 hours.

If you have a business, share products that your target market can benefit from.
For instance if you are a vegan bakery, you can share content from other businesses that sell vegan icing or vegan butter for baking.


3. Engage with your audiences’ stories


Take 20 minutes out of your day and engage with the stories that are about to expire.  Instead of engaging with the top 3 you see on your Instagram home screen, scroll all the way to the right until you reach the end.  Interact with these stories that are expiring soon because you could have missed a great opportunity to connect.


When you interact with people’s stories, you are more memorable and people will return the favor by coming onto your profile.
