Whether you’ve just started using Instagram to market your personal brand or small business, or you’re a seasoned professional using it daily to reach those dream clients, you’re inevitably going to have those moments where you have no idea what to post.
Posting without purpose is like making a pizza and forgetting the cheese; it’s not intentional, it’s not delicious, and it’s not going to move your mission any further along.
That’s why in those moments, it’s essential to take a step back and remember your deeper purpose; the WHY behind every single thing you do. Ideally, after you do that, your mind will get more apparent, and you’ll be able to post exactly what your ideal clients need to hear.
In other moments, you may just be stuck!
That’s why I’ve created these Instagram prompts for you that will still tell a relevant story and nurture your ideal clients along when you don’t know what to post!
Wait a minute, there’s something first that needs to be said…
The reason why I emphasize story so much in Instagram captions (hint: I actually emphasize story in ALL kinds of copy) is that it’s the perfect vehicle for exchanging information in a digestible way. Since the dawn of time, we’ve used story to make sense of our world, to communicate with one another… to BOND with one another.
Appealing through story appeals to our deeper emotional sensibilities while also cutting through the online noise and helping us digest information easily.
Now let’s get into the prompts!
There you have it! 10 prompts for you to start telling stories even when you think you don’t have anything to say.
I know that it can be challenging to always feel like you have the right words to share – but remember, using story as the vehicle for really sharing the greater value and lessons that you’d like to share with your audience, so they know the pieces of information they need to to be primed for your offer or product!
