Why should you use these best Instagram captions?

A good Instagram caption is very important for many reasons.

Sometimes it can really make the big difference between getting a like and a comment, and getting hundreds of them.

It can and will make your followers feel like they are being asked to engage with you, which is what we should be really looking for everytime we publish content online.

For example, let’s take a look at this post by @motivation:

best instagram captions

Their account is obviously about motivation and inspirational content.

“Dare to leave your comfort zone”. That is their caption; is simple and short, and it will do the job.

If you pay close attention to the image itself, the caption is basically complementing it with more inspiration and value.

This is where we wanted to get…

The best caption is that one that makes sense to use. If you have a picture of your dog, then why would you have a caption about traveling?

Unless you are traveling with your dog or something related to that topic, then you should not use any travel caption. You get the point.

How to write the best Instagram captions?

If you want to write the caption by youself, then we will talk about how you should really go about it, and what other tips you should be always implementing.

1- Share a story with your followers

If you don’t have anything in mind, then simply share why you are posting the picture or video in the first place.

Sometimes people just want to read what you have to say, and depending on how personal you make it, they will feel even more close to you and will enjoy your content even more.

Captions sometimes can feel a bit less personal, but if you write a short paragraph just expressing your feelings or ideas to your followers, then you will be better off that way.

2- Make people want to engage with you

Ask questions or make them share their opinions on a certain topic. It can be whatever you want related to the picture.

For example, if you are in a certain place, simply ask others if they have been there before.

People will feel encouraged to comment this way in comparison to simply putting an emoji in your caption, for example.

3- Appreciate others in every way possible

Be thankful that they are even there. If you are an artist, then this should be one of your top priorities.

People like to feel part of something, so if you make them part of your life, they will return the favor by liking your content.

Instagram is making it easier to communicate with others and it seems that this is their mission.

4- Don’t force it, you don’t always need a caption

Sometimes is even better to leave it empty.

Not every picture needs a caption, and you will be better off by simply not saying anything.

Everyone will notice it and it can come off as unnatural.

5- Be you and don’t imitate others

Make sure you are being original. Everything that I’ve said is a good start to make sure your captions are the best possible.

But…

You are also more than free to innovate and create new trends or ways to communicate your ideas on Instagram.

I recommend you watch this next video by Uthman Ali in which he talks about “How to write the best Instagram caption?”.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7uGpyxvpUQ

He mentions how you should always try to inspire others with a positive message and how sometimes you should actually say something that makes sense.

For example, one thing that called our attention is when he says that the first sentence should be the most important since this is where your followers will decide if they should keep reading or simply keep scrolling.

This is very important since it’s true, you will have on average about 3 seconds to keep them interested in what you have to say next.

Fair Use Statement

What is Fair Use according to Instagram:

The fair use doctrine recognizes that rigid application of copyright laws in certain cases would be unfair or may inappropriately stifle creativity or stop people from creating original works, which would harm the public. So, the doctrine allows people to use someone else’s copyrighted work without permission in certain circumstances. Common examples include: criticism, commentary, news reporting, teaching, scholarship and research.

With that being said: The majority of these captions were generated by our team and about 5% of them were sent by our audience. If some of them are in any way the result of your intellectual property, we reserve the right to a fair use.
