Find the perfect Instagram captions with these best practices

Once you have a few captions you like, focus on experimenting with these three main elements of your Instagram captions to define and gauge what works best for your brand.

Word count

Instagram’s caption limit is 2,200 characters, but the captions are truncated at 125 characters—meaning the viewer must interact with the post and tap “more” to see longer captions in their entirety.

There’s no right or wrong word count for Instagram captions. According to a recent HubSpot/Mention study, around half of all Instagram posts have captions between 100 and 1,000 characters, which they consider the “sweet spot” brands should aim to stick to. However, the study also found that longer captions had better engagement rates.

Your ideal caption word count depends on your brand and your goals. Influencer and thought leadership profiles often use their captions as “microblogs” to boost time spent on the post and connect on a deep level with followers through long motivational captions.

However, a study by Quintly showed that for businesses using Instagram to connect with customers, short captions work better. The ideal length for driving more interactions is 1–50 characters.

Emojis

No matter what industry you’re in, it’s worth considering sprinkling some emojis into your posts. Quintly’s report showed that the greater the amount of emojis used, the greater the Instagram post interaction.

Just make sure that the emojis you use make sense for your brand identity.

Emojis also serve as excellent visual bookends to the ideas and thoughts you’re sharing, helping you to stress the end of a sentence or create line breaks in long strings of copy.

Hashtags

Hashtags on Instagram work like keywords do in Google searches. Users can search hashtags on Instagram, and they’ll see every trending post that uses the phrase with the pound sign.

Instagram permits you to add up to 30 hashtags per post. However, Quintly’s study found that fewer hashtags (from one to 10) tend to drive more interactions overall. The HubSpot/Mention study found that the optimal number of hashtags is just one and that “having eight or more hashtags reduced a post’s engagement rate by half as much compared to having no hashtags at all.”

Our takeaway? Use hashtags sparingly and diligently to find your target audience. Using broken hashtags or banned hashtags can lead to shadow-banning, HubSpot confirmed, meaning Instagram could hide or restrict your content without informing you that they have done so.

Whether you’re experimenting with length or emojis, make one change at a time, so it’s easy to identify the cause for performance shifts. To gauge whether caption changes are paying off, we recommend tracking:

  • Impressions: How many people saw your post.
  • Engagement rate: How many likes, comments, shares, saves, and any other interactions your posts received.

Along with changing one caption factor at a time, be sure to keep other elements of your Instagram posts as consistent as possible when experimenting. Otherwise, you won’t be able to tell if the caption adjustments led to the boost in performance.
