Facebook vs. Instagram - what is more effective?

by iamthore 62 replies
Hi warriors,

I'm constantly looking to expand the channels I advertise on. Even though they are under the same "roof" I find there are different benefits to both of the networks.

Especially when it comes to working with influencer I find it often times cheaper to work with IG personalities (as they don't really know the value of their brand more often than not).

What do you think? What's more effective to marketing your products / services and why?

    I think Pinterest is better than both. Lasre targeted free traffic. Money can be made on FB but there are a lot of expensive ads between you and victory. Instagram rocks and if you build a following you can sell shout outs, but otherwise there are not a lot people on there buying non-Instagram stuff on there. If your niche has a lot of visible appeal, you may do well on Instagram and Pinterest.

      I heared people mentioning Pinterest as a way to drive leads multiple times now but I can't really grasp the concept behind it. Without going into too much detail, can you outline the concept of advertising on Pinterest. As far as I am aware you can online post pictures can't you?

    It's really all subjective.

    I mean there is a certain segment of the population who think snail mail is still a better medium to advertise than the internet.

    And vice versa.
    Just depends on your goals, the product and niche, as well as your skill set and personality

    This is something you will have to test yourself and not take others advice. While one strategy works well for one marketer, it may not work for others. So test it to see what kinds of results you are getting.

    Instagram is mainly a photo/short video sharing service. While On Facebook you can post photos, texts, videos, links, groups, events, pages and many other social activities.

    For me, Facebook and Instagram are both effective because these two are social medias and many people or let say your target market can easy notice your advertisement, but in terms of number of users, Facebook have it.

    I know this post is about Instagram and facebook but I prefer twitter I find it more easier to follow and send messages to people. For me there's too much going on in facebook and I haven't really gotten into Instagram yet.

    Surely it depends what it is that you are promoting.

    If it is more visual then obviously Instagram would be better, but if it is more about information then Facebook may be better for getting a message across.

    Facebook is use for work, file sharing , promotion of your business , marketing whereas Instagram is use for only photosharing. So, i think facebook is more effective than instagram.
