Easy to Connect
Instagram thrives off users enjoying the fun of sharing pictures and videos. By following a consistent posting schedule, users have something to look forward to if you’re posting content that will engage your followers and attract new ones. Sponsored Ads are also a good way to build more of a following by appearing in more newsfeeds rather than limiting your posts to just the newsfeeds of your followers. You can turn one of your organic posts into an ad directly on the Instagram app.
Easy to Visualize
Instagram users have visuals of what products they want to purchase or services they want to use based off an aesthetically pleasing profile. Instagram is all visual, so by providing posts of your products or services that will create an engaging response, you will be able to provide a better visual experience for users.
Easy to Contact
With Instagram, users can connect with a brand by using the “Contact,” which allows them to visit your website, contact your business, or find where you’re located. To do so, you transition your organic account into a business profile, which is no extra cost. Converting your organic Instagram profile into a business profile not only makes you look more official, but it also makes you more credible.
Easy to Track
By using Instagram advertising, marketers can track their analytics but knowing the number of impressions on their posts and see the breakdown of photos and videos that received the most impressions.
Instagram business profiles can also view their audience by utilizing the insights tool that shows a brand’s follower base according to their age, location and gender based off the user’s profile.
