Social media is a very effective tool for growing a new or existing business. Instagram is becoming an increasingly popular way to share products and special offers, and with millions of users worldwide, it’s a really great way for your business to take off. Here we will look at some tips to help you use Instagram for your business.
One of the great things about Instagram is that you can use it to post about new products, taking photos as soon as you have made/ received the goods. You can also take photos of exclusive behind-the-scenes action which is one of the appeals for customers to follow a business on Instagram.
You can also get more followers by engaging with them and showing them that you care. Respond to comments on your photos or follow some people back. You should also post regularly so people don’t forget you’re there. Once a day or every other day is good – you don’t want to post too much or people might get annoyed.
It’s also a good idea to give exclusives to your followers, such as a discount or run a contest via Instagram to win one of your products. You can also use the service to ask customers to share images of the way they use your products. Favorite images can be reposted by you to show followers some ideas. It’s a great way to learn more about your customers and what they do with your products.
One great tool which you can use is the search engine for Instagram, Mulpix.com. This allows you to search photos and videos using names, hashtags and locations. This allows you to find other businesses similar to yours, so you can look for tips on how they use the network.
