Instagram For Business

Instagram for business has been talked about for a number of months and now it’s here in the UK

The only thing is – you probably haven’t been told about it when you log into Instagram or prompted to make the change

In this weeks blog we explain why as a business own you should change to Instagram for Business … and importantly how

WHY INSTAGRAM FOR BUSINESS?
Instagram themselves describe the core benefit as “Business Tools give you the ability to stand out, learn more about your followers and reach more customers on Instagram”

For us it’s very simple – if you can measure it, you can improve on it

The missing link until Instagram for Business came out was that there were no real stats on how well your instagram campaigns were doing

Sure, Iconosquare gave a nice overview – but they shifted from the free / premium model to strictly paid – which the average business owner didn’t want to do

The changeover to business profile also gives your customers the option to be contact you from Instragram via email or phone and also includes a business address

And lastly – you can promote your business via promoted posts directly from instagram
