I want to talk about a fast growing social media site that is really growing fast and offers real good online promotion potential for any business. I’m talking about Instagram!
Before we get to that, when it comes to marketing a business online many of the old paid advertising online still work. Pay per click ads on Google, and Yahoo/Bing still work. PPC ads on Facebook really work.
However, there is no denying the power of Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and so on. The same is true for Instagram.
Instagram is barely 4 years old and yet has over 150 million users worldwide, meaning that displaying your business products and services online through Instagram photos and Instagram views has a wide reach all over the world.
Here are some important Instagram tips for an online business.
1. Share your photos on other social networks. Ideally, you want your business to be popular among many people, including those that are not on Instagram. See updated post from http://www.thenational.ae/uae/man-charged-over-instagram-assertion-that-dubai-policeman-was-offering-sexual-services
To achieve more Instagram views, share the important information regarding your products and services on other social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Doing this allows people who are not Instagram subscribers to see your photos and click on your link, which may lead to improved sales and profit.
2. Use hash tags. Use specific hash tags as they will help you get more followers on Instagram to share your photos with.
When using hash tags be sure to avoid general statements such as #television, instead say #Samsung #LCD. Try as much as possible to engage your followers by using effective hash tags.
Also, be sure to check what other firms in your industry are doing. They might have new ideas that you don’t know.
3. Only Share important content. Intuitively, many people will only want to know the most important information about your business, goods, and service.
When sharing information on Instagram be sure you only share important information regarding the business, its goods, and service. Avoid using sharing of information that cannot add value to the business.
4. Be consistent. Consistency is very important when it comes to increasing sales and business popularity through any social network.
Be sure the photos you post and share through Instagram Marketing tell the same story about your business. Posting inconsistent and incoherent information can be costly, so always make sure you stick to the same information you want to tell people regarding your business.
Instagram includes a powerful search feature so if posts are set to ‘public’ you can use hashtags to tag your photos and videos so that the content becomes easier to search and becomes more accessible to the public and will get more Instagram views. That means when someone runs a search and is exploring that ‘search term’ your content may be discovered which leads to more people finding out about your business or brand.
Some hashtags are very popular so it’s important to identify the ones that are most relevant to your industry. The aim of the game is really to get people talking, liking, following and sharing your content. Hashtags help to get the word out if used effectively so take some time to find out how to use these to get the best out of your content.
