Post the quotes at a specific hour each day
One of the best tips for getting constant results and interaction on your Instagram posts is to post each content type at a predefined hour. For example, if your social media plan includes image quotes, tips & images regarding your company, I recommend to have a specific hour for each. For example 9am for the quotes, 1pm for your tips and 7pm for your other image. Do not make posts to close to each other, to allow each post to get the maximum organic reach

Interact with Your Followers

Always show gratitude, even for a short comment. Just 5 seconds spent can get a loyal fan. More than that, other people will see that you care and will follow you.
Reuse good content to save time and money and never reuse content that has low engagement
Try and reuse good content after a certain period of time, like 6 or 12 months. You have to be smart to do this because it costs a lot of money to produce content and to schedule it, and more important, less than 5% of your audience will actually see what you post. Rotating the content makes sense and businesses can save a lot of money like this.
