    Hey jiya,

    I would definitely use instagram for my business. It is a bit different than other social media sites, but it is definitely a big player in the social media arena.

    Instagram is a very visual social media, so make sure you take interesting photo/videos about your products. Get creative, and look at how other big successful companies are using instagram for their business.

    Also be aware that most of the traffic coming from instagram will be mobile traffic. Mobile traffic is handle very differently than desktop traffic, and this is where a lot of marketers fail with instagram traffic.

    I hope this helps you out in some ways buddy, and have a good one.

    Yes, its a great idea to have Instagram presence of your business. You can attract local as well as international market with this wonderful platform.
    Instagram is a place for images and videos, thus make sure your post must contain beautiful pictures of your products or business related. Use of proper hashtags is very important, if you are a eCommerce business then running a photo contest could be really helpful in generating leads and effective marketing.

    Instagram is great for local business but your business has to be the type that can be visually interesting.

    For example, things like Cooking, restaurants, rc toys, clothes, etc.

    Instagram works great for some businesses. For example we recently hired a faux painter to repaint our kitchen area and he told me his main method of getting new clients was via Instagram as he displays his best projects on Instagram along with video testimonials from satisfied customers. Customers also go to his Instagram feed to select designs or get ideas as to color choices. And he likes being able to show off his work to prospective customers just by pulling out his iPhone and showing them his Instagram feed.
