Over the years, Instagram has proven to be an effective platform for reaching out to your customers and new prospects in a novel manner. Being a visual platform, you engage with users through stories told through photos or videos. Showcase your products and employees and share anecdotes about them, to pique curiosity and engagement. Bring in your satisfied customers to tell their stories about their association with your brand. In addition, you can gain traction through practices like organizing contests and discounts on products. All these help generate interest, enabling the promotion of your brand organically.
After having set up an account on Instagram with a username, you are required to provide short & clear-bio about your business and include a link-back to a well-optimized landing page. Pick a username to match the business name as closely, and upload your logo as the profile picture. Start posting content (photos & videos) and use editing tools & filters from Instagram to make content appealing. Use hashtags liberally for growing an audience. Be mindful of avoiding overly promotional tone to your content; be subtle in your approach.
