3 Hot Tips for Writing Epic Captions

Got writer’s block?

Captions seem simple, but you’d be surprised by just how many people get stuck writing them. 

There’s no getting around it: social media is a visual experience. However, just because videos and images reign supreme on social, you shouldn’t neglect text, especially your captions.

A well-written, purposeful caption is incredibly useful for adding context, driving sales, and engaging with your audience.

So, let’s take a look at three tips for better captions.

Know your purpose.
Before you sit down behind your keyboard to write your epic caption, ask yourself one simple question: What do I want this caption to achieve?

Give your followers some value. 
Everything you do on social media should add some kind of value for your audience. Adding value can be as simple as telling a joke, sharing some useful information, or even demonstrating how your products work. 

Use call-to-actions (where needed). 
Including a call-to-action (CTA) is a staple of just about all marketing efforts, and your epic social media captions are no exception. However, not every post requires a CTA. If you ask your followers to take action too often, you might come across as desperate and drive them away.
