There are more than five hundred million users on Instagram. But did you know that Instagram is more than just a collection of gorgeous photos? Instagram promotes brand awareness, directly connects businesses and consumers, and empowers people and companies to do more. This platform is essential to your digital marketing strategy.

Hire someone with experience.

If you don’t have time to manage your own Instagram, find someone to do it for you. Make sure you hire someone with social media, marketing, and brand promotion experience. If you’re having trouble finding a good fit, Vibbi is a great option! This company offers several services and tools to improve your Instagram presence, including promoting your brand, backing up your content, and keeping you up to date with Instagram’s latest trends.

Post new content.

Publish new content regularly, but don’t “over-post” and drive away your consumers. Remember to post high quality photos (your followers will stick around for these!), diversify your content (don’t post the same thing over and over and over again), and be creative (mix it up; keep your followers interested). You also need to make sure you interact with your followers and target audience. Use hashtags, respond to comments, and ask thought-provoking questions in your caption.

Keep your followers engaged.

It’s essential to communicate with your followers. Leave comments on their photos, respond to their questions, and tag partners and clients in your photos. All of these things will encourage genuine conversation, and that’s exactly what you want. By engaging with your followers on a regular basis, you’ll create deeper connections and foster customer loyalty. Your followers will not only trust your brand — They’ll also trust that you have their best interests at heart. Then, they’ll tell their friends and family to check out your brand/company, and your audience will grow.
