    What do you guys usually do to create the captions for the photos that you post? Do you not put anything or what would be a good guideline to generate more engagement?

    Thank you!!

    Did you mean HTML <figcaption> or something to do with css. Let me know I do have a very attractive code that will work for any image caption on any site platform?

    Randomize it basically. Generally, making it as cheesy as possible works because it goes with the hashtags that I use.

    Haha check the section this is posted in. The OP is referencing pic captions on Instagram.

    Hmm what do you mean? For exactly im in the mens fashion niche and coming up with a thoughtful caption is quite hard.. you can only say "This is dapper' "Casual style at its best" ..etc. so much right?

    Any suggestions?

    True, but you have to think of it from a cheesy/casual sales pitch perspective. Get what I mean? State what they would be doing like "Wear this while you're at the bar" - "Picking up women couldn't be easier in this", etc.

    gotcha.. that helps so much. I mean the clothes are visual enough where people can envision how good they would look wearing it... but i don't want to leave any pics without a caption because that kinda looks silly.

    Do you always end your caption with "Tag your friends who x " or "Tag a friend" etc? Or just leave it as the casual sales pitch?

    I put in a sales pith and then include the relevant hashtags.

    Inspire from your competitors or the sources from where you're copying the images from.
    Look out and see how they can be improved and what's missing in them. Work on it, use it and see the traffic flowing in!

    Well i usually ask questions in my captions like "what do you guys think?" and shit like that, also sometimes quotes will get you some good engagement on your pics(depends on your pic) you can also ask them to tag their friends and double tap the pic just be creative. after that don't fill the caption with hashtags 3 or 5 hashtags are good.
