 Conferences 

During a conference, attendees are drawn to your Instagram photo and able to locate your booth quicker.  

Display a large photo with your hashtag so attendees can find it.

When possible show a live feed on a screen of photos attendees are uploading with event hashtags.

At small or large conferences, this can come in handy to stand out from the crowd. 

Example if your event is called Pro Travel Network Moses your hashtag may be #PTNM or #ptnmoses put that hashtag on everything you pass out relating to the conference.  All photos going out promoting the conference.  At the conference put it on materials, on the booth, on the programs etc..  Make sure attendees know and are encourage to tag their photos of the conference with the hashtags. 

 

To see your profile, or to explore a friend’s profile, simply navigate to instagram.com/[username].

For example, in order to view Nike’s profile, @nike, you’d navigate to instagram.com/nike  on the web.

We are living in a society that has a plethora of opportunities to expand your brand awareness.

 

There are various way you can broadcast and deliver your data product to the public.

 

Thanks to social media it has allowed businesses of all sizes an almost even playing ground to spread their message.

 

However, if not systematize or organize correctly, it can also become a bit overwhelming to small businesses, in particular solo marketers.

 

Trying to keep up with YouTube, Pinterest, MySpace, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and many more, now Instagram.

 

However, it’s good to know these platforms exist to offer you a greater chance of getting your message out there.

 

It is worth while to pay attention to Instagram.

 

There are over 90 million users who login at least once per month which means it’s one social media site you want to at least pay attention to.

 

While sites like Facebook and Twitter are your more traditional social media sites to engage with your customers and prospects, Instagram can also be powerful if used correctly.

 

Many people are interested in the photo sharing sites.

 

Instagram gives you the visual impact your audience is looking for and when you add the right kind of photos to your hash tags, you can easily build a following and your fans will share your photos increasing awareness about your business.

 

Tips when considering Instagram as part of your marketing toolkit.

 

1) Be creative using images (photos or pics of e.g. drawings, infographics, etc.) to engage your audience.

2) Photo contest is a great idea to have your customers send in photos of them using your product and offer a discount to  the winner.

 

3) Plan a weekly or monthly contest and you’ll have content you can share on  your other social media platforms such as Facebook.

 

4) Be personal to show another side to your business.

            a) For example, if you own a small hair salon, consider adding photos of your employees, customers smiling after getting their hair done, etc.

            b) Show you’re more than just a logo or website and you’re bound to connect with many more fans and soon-to-be followers.

 

Instagram is growing by leaps and bounds.

 

 It may not be, or ever be, as big as Facebook or some of the other social media sites, with over 90 million users and its unique platform, it’s certainly not one to ignore.
