Tip: how to use quotes for Instagram?

The usual way to use quotes is simply paste them on an Instagram photo and share it.

There is nothing bad with this idea, but some of those have become “overshared” and many of your followers know them from other profiles.

This is ok, but what if you would use these to your advantage and make your profile stand out with some unique quotes?

The best way to use these captions is to get inspiration and transform them into remarkable quotes dedicated to your audience.

Example: So if you know the average of your followers is between 25 and 35 and 70% of them are men, you can assume that they like expensive cars.

If you take the quote “Money couldn’t buy friends, but you got a better class of enemy.” and simply change to “Money couldn’t buy friends, but you can buy a new Ferrari and this will bring you many new friends“.

Or “Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a boat.” and turn it into “Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a new Porsche and that’s enough.”

If your profile is about food, you could change the quote to “Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a pizza, and pizza makes people happy.”

The main goal is to come out with something unique that will make you stand out from other profiles and make people remember you. Even those who are not following you!


With so many resources out there, it might be confusing to find the right quotes for your Instagram profile.

So I hope this post could help you a bit to choose the right one and boost the engagement on your profile.

Thats what all profiles are about. To engage people, motivate them and grow your audience.

And of course, once you’re so far, you can start earning some money with your Instagram profile.
