I LOVE Instagram. Personally, I am on Instagram MUCH MORE THAN I AM ON Facebook....and I am not 'young'...LOL
The reason why I love IG as a user, (only speaking for myself), is that it feels a lot more personal.
Professionally, I meet/network/collab with other professionals on IG & approx. 15% of my new clients come thru IG.
It's a win/win for me personally & professionally.
Tip #10 IG Stories & Reels
Ok, here's the inside story, IG Stories were Facebook Inc's answer to SnapChat's product (i.e. Posts that 'disappear' after 24hrs).
IG Reels are Facebook Inc's answer to TikTok's short-video product*.
BTW, TikTok hit 1BILLION monthly active users globally this past summer (45%+ from July 2020!!)*
Stories are a key part of your Instagram marketing strategy.
Instagram Stories disappear after 24 hours.
Followers expect them to be more real and raw than your curated Instagram feed.
They provide an opportunity to connect with followers and build relationships.
Instagram Reels can build your community & grow your reach on Instagram.
Instagram Reels is a way to create fun and engaging video content.
Like TikTok, IG users can record/edit together 15 to 60-second video clips set to music and share them
Creating a Reel can be either a film-on-the-spot vid OR an uploaded/ pre-edited video.
With Instagram Stories & Reels, your business has the opportunity to reach new audiences!! Another Win/Win opportunity!!!
