Don’t just focus on the image itself, focus on the story that will catch one’s feeling and do it more than enough. Persuade then afterward, let the conviction flow naturally.

If necessary, do a ‘buzz-beater’ questions or posts, interact often, make noise (but not irritating noise), make fun, and make it lighter by specifying your audience. The more you get into the environment of your audience, the more you’ll get what you want.
