Riding the success stare on Instagram require a bit of analyzing your own posts and customer behavior. With all the 3 tools mentioned above, you get to do those analyzing with ease which ultimately results in a brand that most of Instagram users will know.
Facebook has become one of the strong ways of outreach. Every established business makes an own page and promotes that socially. It increases visibility and sends strong social signals thus pulling the attentions of maximum numbers of users. Facebook pages are used to create a fan base as well. Along with the social presence, easy customer acquisition makes the companies promote their businesses through the Facebook Pages.
But managing the pages is not as easy as we scroll down to the news feed. It needs to be verified by the Facebook and requires all important information which is needed to run a fully proved business pages.
Set a complete page
Always set a complete page with all the necessary info on it. Don’t forget to add the “Impressum” in the appropriate area. It’s a new thing added to recognize corporate pages on Facebook. You can write up to 500 words about your business here. So fill it. With the latest update, without filling impressum, it becomes harder to get authentic “badge tick” from Facebook that identifies a page as “verified”.
Use different ways to share
You might have seen that there are many ways to share your contents. If you are running any contest or online shop, then you can create offers to grab attentions. While sharing an image, always add some lines with it. If you want to share any banner, then select “Image” option only. Promoting videos is another way to engage people with your contents.
Always promote your content to targeted audiences
Paid promotion is better because it provides more reach to the audiences. But do a proper homework about the zone you are targeting. Because targeting the areas where you don’t run your business, you will lose your money only. Whenever you are setting up ads specify the targeted area by the name of the country, the name of the state, gender, age group, etc. Thus Facebook provides optimum controls over your promotions if you think anything gets wrong then stop your promotion immediately. Don’t hesitate to try different methods to find out the optimum one by trial and error method but always choose a small fund for these.
Use memes and quotes
Sharing business things all time isn’t a great idea. You can share quotes of famous men and creating memes can be an excellent input. It does not matter what you are sharing, but that should be engaging enough. That’s all. Creative memes get a lot of socially shared thus creating another dimension of the reach of your page. What you need as a manager is visits at your business page and trickle down visits to your website.
That’s all, my friend. Don’t forget to write us about your thoughts on it. I am counting for your comments. Stay tuned.
Instagram is no more an app-based photo sharing network. With its latest update, it has changed the way of using it. Now you can share all of your moments using the mobile site on the go! The mobile site of Instagram has got a face over, and now you can easily do whatever you want even without the app installed on your phone!
The move is quite awesome of course because moving to an app the only service isn’t a great idea. India’s one of the renowned fashion site Myntra went fully app based before a year. But after that, it started generating huge loss because the desktop and browser traffic erased in this move and only loyal customers remained in the sale loop. Once it has analyzed the dip in sale volume in a huge manner, it got a reverse engineering, and the site was re-launched to tackle the disaster.
Apart from the up gradation of the mobile site Instagram officially released a brand new web app for iPad also! Try it and let us know your experience though we have written our experiences below so that you can get an idea what it is and moreover why it has come into existence!
Instagram’s new mobile site- new look, new functions
In earlier days the site was not that compelling. Users could not share images using the mobile site. It was available for managing account and to see the notifications and timeline view only. That’s all.
But now the game has been changed fully. You can do everything you used to do using your Instagram app.
For iPad Users- A few things
Earlier Instagram treats the tablets and iPads as a mobile device that’s why it does not allow users to access the info without installing the app for the iPhones. But in the recent update, the things have been changed fully, and users now can easily get into the account without having much troubles and hassle of viewing the things through a small fuzzy screen. User experiences have improved a lot regardless of the device you use and without the limitations in any operating system. Whether you use Android or iOS, you will get same fluidic experiences through the mobile app.
For iPad users a new update-
- You can now install the Instagram web app which allows you to post photos seamlessly without getting into the iPhone app. This new app is really a great boon but still a long way to go. The app is a little bit slow and does not have optimum visual appearances like profile grid show.
A good point to note-
- Instagram’s app consumes a lot of data to show you the timeline, stories, etc. But this new iPad app can work seamlessly on a slow network, and that’s why it’s considered as one of the best solutions for iPad right now.
