With over 800m active users, Instagram is a free image-based platform which can be easily integrated into your digital marketing strategy to promote your business and communicate your message. It is a highly effective social feed because of the four elements of stories, images, video and Instagram TV work. The ability to monetize your feed with the shopping feature enables you to increase your online sales and customer engagement. A 2019 survey revealed that 87% of users said they acted after seeing product information, either by visiting a website or using the 'learn more' option.
According to statistica.com the age profile of Instagram has changed and is now 18-44 years with a third in the 25-34 age bracket. Being on Instagram taps directly into this profile group and can improve SEO, as your social media channels will often appear before your website details.
