The structure of a popular Instagram post

This slideshow is an example of a presentation. As with every presentation, there is a topic on the first slide. The topic contains a trigger: a question, a problem, TOP-5.

The last slide is a call to action. We tell the reader what to do after receiving this information: share, save, like, comment ("share, it's important", "like if you agree"). According to Andriy's testing results: if you don't specify what a person needs to do, conversion decreases by 30%.

In slides 2, 3, 4, 5, the problem is presented in a way that makes the user see it as something that concerns him personally and requires looking for a solution in the following slides.

! The second slide is important. Often, if the subscriber did not react to the post right away, Instagram, after a certain time, starts to show it from its second slide.

Slides 7,8,9 are the solution to the problem.

How to build a successful communication strategy for business

! When creating a post, you need to think about which slides people will repost. People share more than just the first picture from a post.

This is an example of one of the most shared slides providing a solution to a problem. It was important to think it through in advance and add an explanation so that, when reposting, people would understand what the whole post is about from the very start.

How to come up with situational content?

• Monitor trends and topics on Twitter (!) and Instagram, read discussions in the comments and chats and carefully monitor your own correspondence.

5 examples of insights that content analysis can bring

What can the content be?

• Useful tips, humor, selection (ratings), scandal (explanations, opinions), analysis, support.

So, the algorithm for creating a post:

1. Stating the topic.

2. Structure. First, estimate what you need to say in general. Once you establish the logic, a problem, a solution, a call to action, start filling the structure with content.

3. Copyright. One of the ways to create a post is to outline the structure and have an expert fill it out.

4. How do you like it? It is important to test creativity. Ask your focus group "is it interesting?", "would you repost it?", "what did you like most?", "what is missing?"

5. Design. Do not overdo it: one slide is one thought. It is best for the Instagram algorithms to create as many slides as possible and make them so that users go through all of them.

6. Publication.
