Instagram keyword search may not be the platform’s “sexiest” update, but it is a very useful one.

You can now search for posts by using keywords your ideal customer might use within their caption. This is great for finding new people to interact and spark conversations to build relationships using social media. This method to growth takes really getting to know your audience and what their interests are outside of your brand in order to hone in on what keywords and phrases to search.
