When using Pinterest, you have to take advantage of promoting your pins through paid advertising, as well as using both of your keywords and the times you post strategically. Your posts to Instagram also require  strategic use of keywords, but in the format of hashtags relevant to your company as well as the audiences you’d like to reach. Posting on Instagram should be quite regular and the photographs need to fit your brand’s chosen image.
