Social Media Marketing Tips: What is a business profile and how do you get one?

Facebook had purchased Instagram for a sum of $ 1 billion. It is a significant sum of money to pay for a company, but if you look at the overall marketing picture then you will understand why for Facebook it is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. Instagram is one of the biggest social media marketing platforms in the world. Businesses spend more than a Billion Dollars on advertising on Instagram alone every year.

Methods of Advertising on Instagram:

Once you have switched to a business profile on Instagram you have several options to advertise your products or services. We have included some of the top advertising methods on Instagram:

Photo Ads:

Instagram was built as a photo sharing platform. One of the methods of advertising on Instagram is using Photo Ads. They’re like regular shares on Instagram but with added features like a call to action button, for users to interact with your ad.

Video Ads:

This feature lets you showcase to your customers your products and services with the help of videos. Make sure to keep your videos short and creative to get the best out of the Ads’. Video content can be used in a wide variety of ways. Movie studios and game developers have been using ad videos to promote their app downloads and movie ticket sales.

Carousel Ads:

This is a popular feature among e-commerce websites. It lets you display multiple products that the customers can swipe through. It’s good to have a selection of related items to display on your carousel ads to ensure that the customer is enticed to swipe further. Don’t forget to add a call to action button to take your users to the website of landing pages for the products.

Story Ads:

This was a new feature that was just released to Instagram. Stories let you share your business story with the customers. A good way to attract followers by publishing interesting facts and creative ads on your story. What differentiates your story from the video ad is do that, stories are not a permanent fixture and they disappear from the app after 24 hours. If you have a strong following, stories make a good way to keep in touch with your customers. To provide them with teasers for your products or services. More than 250 million people use this feature on a daily basis so make sure your ads are top notch. Story Ad’s appear in full screen and are usually followed by Ads of other Instagram users that your customers follow. More space for content and better creative ideas.
