Coming up with a "OMG-I-must-comment" Instagram caption is not easy. #TruthBomb

If you want to grow your Instagram account with quality followers who turn into raving fans and customers to your business, captions cannot be an afterthought.

With the new algorithm changes, the level of engagement your post receives within a short timeframe determines if your followers will see it in their newsfeeds.

A good caption will prompt your followers to like, comment, tag a friend or even send a DM your way.

The more engaged your following is, the better your posts will do and the more reach you'll have on the 'gram.

"Instagram is the most important platform to grow your business in 2018." - Russell Brunson, co-founder of ClickFunnels.

When Russell uttered these words at this year's Funnel Hacking Live in Orlando, I shot my phone up into the air above the seated crowd and started recording the rest of his 15-minute presentation (as my arm quivered and shook).

At the same time, I was internally freaking out.

Here was one of my industry's most prolific influencers and entrepreneurs... saying everything I had been telling my InstaGrowth Boss students for the last year.

It was a full circle moment that renewed my passion for helping freelancers and entrepreneurs grow their business through Instagram.

So why is Instagram the most important social network?

5 ways to boost your business with Instagram Story Highlights

Instagram Story Highlights and Archive have changed the way I use my favourite app.

If you're not familiar with these new features, you can now create "bubbles" (or what Instagram is calling "Highlights") of your already-shared Instagram Stories that permanently live on your profile, directly on top of all your posts.

Plus, with the Archive feature, all your Instagram Stories are saved in the app so you no longer have to save them to your phone. 👏

Think of Instagram Story Highlights as the interactive welcome video that a new follower gets to see about you.

And think of Instagram Stories as the new way to vlog.

"Hmmm... should I follow this ~Elise Darma~?

Well, she travels a lot and gives tips on Instagram which is right up my alley so that's an obvious yes." 😁

Now I'll be honest. Before the December 2017 update, I didn't put THAT much strategy or thought into my Stories.
