When you think about Instagram, you probably get a picture of foodies snapping perfectly-lit dinner photos, boyfriends taking a million pictures of their girlfriends in just the right pose, or makeup and beauty gurus trying to catch a ride on the influencer train.
In reality, there are many organizations from all sorts of sectors that use Instagram for business. They treat it as a platform to reach their audiences, customers, and community.
But what if your organization isn’t what you’d consider a creator of “visual” content?
What if you don’t have a physical product you sell?
Is Instagram still for you?
Did you know the platform is projected to account for a quarter of all of Facebook’s ad revenue by the end of 2019, and nearly a third in 2020, according to Sprout Social?
Did you also know that more than 80% of the accounts on the platform follow at least one business account?
Instagram remains a social media rising star, and with the right business strategies, it can work for you too.
