Market your business with Instagram ads

Alongside other social media platforms, Instagram can be an excellent place to market your business.
We’re not talking about the uploading of photos to your account. Anyone can do that. We’re talking about running the advertising that appears in the feeds of the types of Instagram users you wish to target. These are two very separate things.

With over 1 billion monthly users, there’s a good chance that your target market is using Instagram. Instagram ads are a great way to reach out to them and get people interested in your product or service. However, a lot of business owners try and manage their own Instagram ads, and end up wasting a lot of money in the process.

This is where we come in. We know how to target the right Instagram users and demographics, and we know how to get your message across in the most effective way possible.

The difference between having an Instagram accounts, and running Instagram advertising

Having a normal Instagram account is free. You can use this to upload photos of your lunch or latest project. This is all well and good, but it’s not going to do much for your business.

If you want to use Instagram to actually market your business, then you need to be running ads.

Instagram ads cost money. They are known as ‘pay per click’, or PPC. You set a daily amount to spend with Instagram. This will vary according to your needs, and we can advise what we think will work best when you get in touch with us. It’s difficult to put a number on this on this page because it varies greatly, but suffice to say the more competitive your industry, the more you will need to budget.

Why use Instagram ads?

There are a number of reasons why you might want to advertise on Instagram to market your business.

First of all, as mentioned before, there are over 1 billion monthly users on the platform. This provides you with a huge potential audience for your message.

Secondly, Instagram is a very visual platform. This means that it’s perfect for businesses that are selling products or services that are visually appealing.

Thirdly, an Instagram ad campaign can be very affordable. You can reach a large number of people for very little money, which makes them an excellent way to market your business on a budget.
