Three Tips to Conquer the Instagram Algorithm

n a perfect world, great Instagram content would garner followers and likes worth all the painstaking effort that went into creating it. From shooting and editing the perfect shot and crafting that witty, but the subtle caption, the ultimate goal is to achieve the metrics that lead to happy clients. However, creating great content is just the beginning. There is an inherent science to tackling the Instagram algorithm. Below are the top three ways to conquer the algorithm for any client. 

Engagement is the Epicenter

It feeds users content that they want to see and information that they find valuable. So how does your client end up on the coveted list? Consistency. Using platforms like Later will help your client stay top of mind ( well, top of feed).

It still wants to show followers the latest in the content that interests them, especially those that do not use the platform less frequently. The Instagram algorithm wants to show infrequent users the highlights. The best tip for mastering this Instagram element is to take a deep dive into your analytics to see when the bulk of your audience is actively engaged.
