When starting a new business, advertising cost can run high, and one way to circumvent these exorbitant prices is to advertise using a social media platform. With over 800 million users, over 40 billion photos shared, 250 million users sharing stories, Instagram is a giant social media platform. So which better social media to advertise on than one of the biggest in the game currently. We are going to be talking about advertising on Instagram today. Instagram helps business owners by releasing tools which allow them to successfully share photos, videos, etc while gathering insights and helping them to sell their products and services.
Instagram, also called Insta or IG, is a social networking service (social media platform) which is owned by Facebook. It is mainly used for photo and video sharing. It was launched in October 2010 exclusively on iOS it was later released on Android devices around a year and a half later. Instagram allows its users to upload videos and photos to the platform which can be edited with various filters organised by tag and location information. Users can share their account publicly or only to approved followers. Users can browse other content by tags, locations and view trending photos and videos. All businesses have public accounts. This means that users can easily search for content published by businesses as long as the content from the business accounts has been tagged and curated properly. Users can also add videos and photos to a feed, that is only viewable for 24 hours, known as stories.
One essential ingredient for businesses is to make sure that you interact regularly with your followers and viewers, who might turn into potential customers or are already existing customers of your business. But this might be hard to do since it is hard to make well-designed posts that will entice people to connect more with your business. You always want to choose images that will entice and captivate your audience. This is true regardless of whether you are already established as a brand or on the platform or starting out completely new. Even if you have the perfect picture or content to publish, properly editing or typeface it may take a lot of dedicated effort.
While some may think of these small details as meaningless, that’s not true, however. It has been observed over and over again that these small details can make a big impact on your bottom line. Which is why you need to always put the best content on your business’ social media accounts, especially on Instagram. This is especially true for anything that you share on your story feed. With most active users regularly checking the story feed, it becomes one of the prime ways to communicate with your followers on Instagram. But again the same level of quality and curation is required for your story feed. And figuring out what works and what doesn’t is not always an easy task. For this reason, we suggest that you use mocks up and templates made especially for Instagram to make this work easier for yourself.
With templates and mock-ups, you don’t have to design the entire Instagram post that you want to share on your account. In fact, most of the work is done, you only need to insert your image and voila! You have a fresh Instagram post ready to be published, ensuring that you remain connected with your followers and customers. This ensures that as long as you have the content ready, you will not be spending time on editing and setting the typeface of each post. This turns out to be a time and money saver for your business. Just choose the style that you want your content to be presented in and you will find mock-ups for it. This makes it very easy to have a consistent look and style associated with your business without you having to manually preside over each post.
