We’ve put a lot of effort into Instagram the past couple of years, and it’s easy to see why. 800 million users, worldwide. 500 million active users daily. 72% of users use IG as a shopping platform. So if you want to boost engagement, start with writing better Instagram captions.
Ask for Opinions
One way to boost engagement is to ask questions, and more specifically - opinions! People LOVE to give their opinion on pretty much anything. It will not only get people commenting, but it will strike up conversations on your page. And this is exactly what you need to boost engagement. Patrick’s Fine Jewelry does this nicely on their post:

“Tag three friends who would love to have this ring on their fingers.”
This spreads the word about your post in a natural, organic way and might just attract new followers.
