How can Instagram help for your small business

  July 4, 2016    Marketing,news    Ruth

Lots of people are asking “how can Instagram can help my business”? Well it can. Instagram was used before for selfies but quickly adapted to business sector. You can share picture and short 60 second video’s. This is great for publicity and advertising. First you need to make sure you use the right #tags a list will pop up with the amount of users, using the same tag chose the one with the most used tags. Normally I write a sentence with all the #tags words. Then attach the video or picture and post. People will like and follow you.

  1. If you selling products try to post images of people using your product not just of the product alone.
  2. Use relevant tags not what’s just based on your product and service this gets more exposure.
  3. The videos you use can still be shorter, videos I think are better are short ones e.g. under 10 seconds as people do not have the time to sit and watch a whole minute promotion video (unless this is hints and tips people will watch them longer)
  4. Try make the video entertaining don’t just SELL, SELL, SELL that’s boring and they will just stop watching

Well good luck any questions just get in touch. Always happy to help out.
