What is Instagram Marketing?

Instagram marketing is how brands use the app to make connections with their target audience. It’s commonly used to market products and services as well as build brand awareness and loyalty. Its popularity has grown as marketers understand the power of visual content.

In fact, 67% of marketers said they planned to increase their organic Instagram activities in 2020. This platform is gaining momentum across industries and verticals: 82% of B2C and 71% of B2B marketers say they’re active on Instagram.

The platform’s popularity with consumers makes it a massive opportunity for brands that are willing to dive in and start interacting. As with all forms of social media marketing, it always pays to build a sense of community.

What Are Instagram Growth Services?

What Are Instagram Growth Services?

An Instagram growth service aims to expand your Instagram’s followership, reach and engagement. It typically focuses on specific goals, such as increasing the number of real Instagram followers by a certain percentage.

Networking on Instagram is a great way to interact with your audience in a more direct way than other types of digital marketing like blog posts or PPC ads. Instagram is a distinctly visual platform that attracts people from all demographics and across the world.

When you work with Brafton, you’ll work with an account manager and social media strategist who are dedicated to helping your brand reach its full potential on this lucrative platform. Your Instagram growth strategy will be unique and tailored specifically to your brand and objectives.

Some elements of your growth strategy may include updating your Instagram profile, creating a regular posting schedule, analysing your current Instagram followership and engagement metrics, creating branded content and more.

Organic Instagram growth is done through traditional posts and Stories. Paid approaches using Stories Ads, Collection Ads, Carousel Ads and more can expand your reach even further.

Some Instagram growth services use Instagram bots and generic, automated content. Not so at Brafton. Getting your voice just right requires a human touch and a real person’s knowledge of your brand and current social media marketing best practices.

At Brafton, you won’t just be another face in the feed. Your content will stand out and draw new followers in.

Why is Instagram Important to Marketers?

Why is Instagram Important to Marketers?

Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms, but it’s not just the size of the platform’s user base that makes it appealing to marketers. Compared with Facebook and Twitter, more Instagram users follow and interact with brands regularly.

In fact, 90% of Instagram accounts follow a business. More than 200 million of them visit at least one business Instagram profile every day.

As of August 2020, 41.5% of the Australian population is active on Instagram. Plus, these users tend to be in a prime demographic. 54% of Aussies on Insta are aged 18-34. And the split between male and female users is nearly 50/50.

Brands on Instagram have many opportunities to make meaningful connections with potential customers in a manner that is familiar and authentic. That means the quality of your Instagram content matters a lot. Users can easily spot Instagram photos and videos that seem pandering or forced.

60% of Instagram users say they have discovered new products on this platform. With support from an expert social media strategist, your brand can reach millions of potential customers who are ready to buy. Attractive, engaging content ensures they continue to connect with your messaging again and again.

We Help You Get More Real Followers

We Help You Get More Real Followers

Some Instagram growth services promote fake followers and paid follower lists.

Our social media strategists know the importance of real, organic followers. Remember, followers are real people who are looking for great content, reliable brands and excellent products.

We advise all our clients against fake followers and bought followers. We’ll even suggest a follower list audit if yours looks like it might have a high percentage of fake followers.

Here’s what we do instead of relying on bought or fake followers: We use excellent, engaging content to increase organic followers.

Real people give you real business. Fake followers give you a false sense of security.

At Brafton, we’re here for the real deal.

By learning about your organisation’s mission and goals, your strategist can develop Instagram campaigns that engage and convert. In addition, tailored analytics help you understand your results so you can continually improve your strategy.

Rolling Instagram Marketing and Promotions

Rolling Instagram Marketing and Promotions

Successful Instagram marketing relies on relevant and timely content, which is why successful brands develop sustainable strategies. With consistent effort, your follower count will grow and you’ll see more visitors arriving to your site from this channel.

Rolling Instagram management includes activities that enhance user engagement and build your following. Your strategist can manage your Instagram account and support your brand with image and video posts, stories, shared user-generated content and more.

Your strategist can also help you build relationships with influencers – accounts that may promote brands and content related to the interests of their targeted followers. Sourcing, qualifying and collaborating with influencers requires the expertise to know when both parties are a good match for each other. Influencer marketing is challenging, but with the right strategy, it can pay off in terms of increased brand awareness and user engagement.

Rolling Instagram management includes monthly analytics reports and a 30-minute review call. Instagram reporting helps you understand your results and adjust your strategy based on real-world data.

Running a rolling Instagram campaign in tandem with other social media efforts can boost your results. Your strategist can help you align your campaign with up to four other social channels. For instance, many brands market on Instagram and Facebook because these platforms share user data.

À la Carte Instagram Posts

À la Carte Instagram Posts

In place of a rolling Instagram campaign, a social media strategist can help you craft one-off posts to promote blog posts, webinars, events and other offerings. This option might be a good idea if you want to support an in-house social media expert or you’re just dipping your toes into the platform. As part of this Instagram service you receive, your strategist can help you schedule Instagram posts based on our data-driven research and best practices.

Instagram Listening

Instagram Listening

With over 1 billion people using the platform, it can be difficult to find out what people are saying about your brand. Searching Instagram hashtags and reading through user conversations is resource-intensive, especially for small marketing teams.

Your social media strategist is adept at identifying and assessing what’s being said about your company and its products. Plus, he or she can give you actionable advice on how to respond and nurture your customers according to your goals.

Audience Engagement Videos

Audience Engagement Videos

Video posts on Instagram receive 38% more engagement than image posts and tend to get over twice as many comments, on average.

User engagement on Instagram is critical to success. Your brand can gain an advantage by working with a strategist to produce short-form video content that converts. Remember, Instagram is a scrolling app – your brand often has less than a second to make an impression before your post is scrolled away. Video encourages users to slow down and take in your messaging without asking too much in return.

Instagram Ad Management

Instagram Ad Management

Advertising on Instagram follows a pay-per-click model that uses a bidding algorithm to place your ads in user’s feeds and stories. Using the Facebook Ad Manager, you can slice your targeted audience for precision campaigns.

An expert strategist will help you build your ads, identify audiences and develop a competitive bidding strategy. This service can be combined with other PPC platforms.
