How to Bold and Italic Your Instagram Captions - - Instsagram Hacks, Instagram Tips and Tricks, Social Media Marketing

You’re probably seeing posts on Instagram and Facebook lately where people are mixing up normal standard text with bold and italic fonts. Maybe you're scratching your head and wondering, “WTF, how the heck did these people figure this out?” Today, I'm going to tell you exactly how to catch the eye of someone scrolling through their social media feed by changing the font of your text. It’s super easy and you’re going to love it.


Why do we want to change our font caption anyway?

A caption that looks easier to read is more appealing to the eye. When text is visually broken into smaller, easy-to-digest nuggets, the number of people who interact and read that caption skyrockets. What that means for you is more comments, more genuine engagement, more of all that good stuff you're looking for on Instagram.

The funny part is it's actually super, super freaking easy and will take you literally zero extra time.

But, there is a secret weapon. Here's the step-by-step guide to creating one of those beautiful, perfectly formatted post captions that you used to drool over:
