What To Pin On Instagram?

I recommend you to keep your caption under 2200 characters and not extend it to the comment sections, but if there is no way to avoid it, you can resume your caption in the comment section and pin it.

If you did so, make sure to let the followers know to read the rest in the comment section.

Positive comments are the other stuff that users normally pin to the top! As a matter of fact, Instagram rolled out this feature to combat Instagram bully!

But if the bully is not your case, you still should pin positive comments. Especially, when you have an Instagram shop. Pinning positive comments on top is one of the ways you can generate trust among your followers.

Instagram allows you to pin up to 3 pins on Instagram! Imagine you posted 3 different hairstyles and now you wonder which one, users liked the most. Now you can ask users the style they liked the most among three pinned comments. Or anything of that sort. 

Actually, this is one of the ways you can estimate the persona of your followers. The more you know your followers, the easier it is to sell them stuff.

You can even run a contest on Instagram in which you ask a question and the right answer is one of the pinned comments. Then run a giveaway among users who liked the right pinned answer.

Speaking of Giveaways, AiGrow is one of the Instagram tools for running giveaways.
