To get the most involvement in the publication and increase its coverage – you need to know what time to spread posts.
In the “Statistics” section there is a tab “Audience”, where you can see the days of the week and hours with the maximum activity of your subscribers.
For example, in an account with women’s clothing, maximum activity falls on monday. The best time for posting is from 15.00 to 9 p.m.
And on Friday, peak activity from 13.00 to 18.00. Everyday – individual.

Learn to put hashtags on Instagram – it’s not at all difficult, but the effect will be significant.
In the statistics of publication there is a column “Interesting”, where you can see the number of impressions from hashtags.
If the publication is interesting, then it will be in the TOP by hashtags – increased coverage is provided (the same applies to geometries).

It’s simple: the user wrote a comment, post displayed in the news feed of his friends. +1 to reach.
Or else: users see comments, stop at publications to read them, thereby letting the algorithms know Instagram that the publication is interesting and needs to be shown to others to users.
So be sure to publish posts where you can express your point of view. You can even ask some question in the signature to publication.
