    If you're target audience is on Instagram, you should be there too!

    For example if your audience consists of young men, age 20-25, interested in Fitness, then you will probably find them on Instagram. But if you're audience consists of men over 50 with erectile dysfunctions, then you probably won't find them on Instagram.

    And since it's such a private issue, they won't follow an account that talks about this anyway

    Instagram is the most engaging social media platform there is right now. You can get your message out very quickly if you can represent your product or service visually or with short videos.

    The most important part of Instagram are the hashtags so make sure you have relevant hashtags. Seekmetrics is a good resource to get hashtag ideas.

    Depending on the quality of the post, branded updates on Facebook and Twitter are sometimes overlooked by the user. However this isn't true for Instagram users; having an active Instagram account with useful and interesting content can earn you crazy levels of engagement with your audience.

    Social Media plays an essential role in brand marketing. I initially started my marketing by building up pages on various famous social media platforms. More postings, the more traffic you receive.
    • Make use of "Instagram Sponsorship". It'll help you gain a traffic of almost 500 or above if you're profile is fully built up. Helping you built up bonds with various brands and also helps you in knowing how much you are influencing the audience.
    • Also, I made use of social media management tools to keep a track of the postings. Tools like - HootSuite, Buffer, Viralpep and Social Pilot.
    • Respond to each comment made to let the audience know that you're active. This will help you receive positive responses by interacting with audiences.
    • Most Importantly make the best use of #HASHTAGS. Hashtags help you reach the desired audience for your brand.

    Instagram - its where potential customers are, so it's absolutely worth having a presence there and engaging with them. Some niches work better than others, that's certain, but it's so easy to connect with users on there that any business ignoring this platform (especially in the services, commerce, beauty, food and health industries) is shooting themselves in the foot.

    The only way Instagram will help, if you have a huge following, then when you post anything, like products, it's liked, shared, Purchased, and so on, so will only work with major following.

    Take a look at then people pay you for shoutout, no affiliate,

    Hope this helps,

    It's Visual. As a photo sharing platform, it may sound like we're stating the obvious here. But unlike most other social media platforms, which focus on text and links, Instagram is exclusively used for photo and video posts.

    Considering that visual content is more engaging than text, this is a huge opportunity for marketers. Instead of trying to send followers to your site to make a purchase or explain the benefits of working with you, you can use photos to create a more compelling message.

    Photos give your business a chance to highlight products, and videos are a great way to show your services in action. And beyond that, you can also use the platform to show company culture and other behind-the-scenes aspects of your business.
