Increase Engagement

Engagement is the name of the game on Instagram. Engagement is all about creating, building and maintaining your social connections. Relationships are key. When you make relationships with certain types of accounts, Instagram recognizes this. 

If you engage frequently with woman owned businesses a lot on Instagram, your Explore page will be loaded with similar content, because Instagram recognizes that you have a repetitive interest in it.

Capture Attention
