InstagramHere’s Some Real World Ways to Market with Instagram

Okay, we all know what Instagram is, nevertheless I would bet your next month’s paycheck that we aren’t very clear on how we can use it in our marketing.

While it’s great at posting and disseminating our latest shots, it can have a very positive impact on brand marketing as well. Let’s see how that can become reality.

7 Ways for you to use Instagram in your marketing

  1. Start gathering a following – You can kickstart this easily if you’ve got a Facebook following by connecting your Facebook account, use relevant and trending hashtags, and also by engaging people and following them.
  2. Use videos – Instagram’s video capabilities are both unique and profound. Double the size of the 6 second micro-video with Vine, the 15 second Instagram videos have the distinct advantage of possibly being shared with Instagram’s 200,000 members, and also the billion users on its parent site, Facebook.
  3. Create an interesting and informative profile – As with any other social media property, Instagram presents a great opportunity to promote your brand via your profile.
  4. Get good at networking on Instagram – Follow brands and people, employ hashtags that are brand specific, and engage with followers. Find ways to reward followers and to cross promote on Facebook.
  5. Get creative with your brand – Make it your mission to not merely post images and videos, but to inject as much creativity and excitement into them as possible, showcasing your company’s products and news in a most entertaining and visual way.
  6. Use video to chronicle your brand – Chronicling and including your followers on important brand milestones is a terrific way to keep interest and buzz alive. Announce major initiatives, products and news through video and images.
  7. Great for announcements – Instagram is a terrific way to reveal new product offerings with images or videos, and give your customers a heads-up about anything new in the pipeline.

Instagram is growing exponentially right now, and with their acquisition by Facebook, they will be popular for some time to come. Just remember to limit the number of selfies, okay?
