Why you need Instagram Marketing

- 7% of US companies will be using Instagram for marketing
The saying goes “a picture speaks a thousand words”. Let the product speak for itself through high quality photos & videos. Show your customers what they are getting before they get it. Get creative, show behind the scenes photos, ask for their opinions. The more you engage with your customers the more they will trust you and then once they trust you they will buy from you.
Visual content (videos & photos) are welcomed to 650% higher engagement. Why wouldn’t you want to put your product in front of that high level of exposure. Plus, it is a lot easier to take a great photo than it can be to write out a blog post for some people.
Now that Instagram is allowing third party apps to schedule directly to the app, it will be even simpler to get your business page rocking and rolling. I like to do all my weeks scheduling a week ahead of time so that way I won’t ever run out of content to post.
