Like and respond to every comment on your posts

You should like and respond to every comment you get (unless it’s a nasty one – in which case scroll to the “cleanliness” tips for your Instagram page).

There are two reasons this is a good idea:

  1. You never know who could become a customer based on an engagement. Be genuine in your community building and your community will reward you over time
  2. You automatically double your comment count, improving the analytics on your post

I usually respond in kind to how someone commented on my posts: emojis get emojis (often the same one(s) in different order), text gets text. If someone writes in a different language that I don’t understand, I usually just sent a simple smiley in response.

Once your following starts growing and engagement gets higher, you may only want to respond to the first 50 or as many as time allows.
