You took a long break.
And you haven’t posted on Instagram for a while.
Here are 8 post and caption ideas to revive your account.
Idea #1. Your “Why”
Share why you took a long break – only if you want to.
Write in your caption:
- Why you took a break
- How were you feeling
- How are you feeling now
Did you take a break because you needed to recharge?
Could you share what happened with your community?
You’d be surprised at how many people will connect with your story.
Your break can inspire others to slow down and take care of themselves too.
Idea #3. Lessons
Do you feel like you’ve learned something during your Instagram break?
Make a list (people love lists).
5 things I’ve learned about taking a break from Instagram.
Idea #4. Quote
Share a quote that resonates with you.
It can be a quote about:
- The importance of taking a break
- Your passion
Idea #5. Meme
Want to come back on Instagram with humor?
Share a funny meme.
Idea #8. Engagement tricks
Make people see you on Instagram again.
Take 10 minutes to like and comment on other people’s posts.
These people can be:
- Accounts that are similar to yours (and that have your ideal follower base), or
- Accounts of people who follow you (I 100% recommend this).
Want to do the second engagement trick?
You can do it 2 different ways:
- Open one of your previous posts
- Check your comments section
- Go like / comment the posts of these people
Don’t have many comments?
That’s ok, use the next way.
- Press on the number of likes under your post (or the usernames under your posts)
- You will see the list of all the people who liked your post
- Press on their username
- Go to their feed
- Like and/or comment on their post
Why do these tricks?
Because each time you like /comment, the person will receive a notification.
This will let them know that you are back.
They will be more likely to check out your account again.
And the Instagram Algorithm will be more likely to show your new posts to them again.
And this is how you start reviving your Instagram!
