In the first half of 2016, Instagram became a tool that marketers can use to reach out to consumers in the first place.
Today, with over 2.5 billion active users, Instagram is the world’s most popular platform for marketers to reach their audience.
With a growing number of brands and individuals using Instagram, the platform has also become a valuable tool for advertisers.
And the best part?
It’s all free.
To use Instagram for your marketing, start by getting the basics right.
Instagram is free to use, but there are a few restrictions that must be met before you can use it.1.
The ads on Instagram should be relevant to the subject you’re promoting2.
If you’re targeting teens, the ads on your photos must be relevant and appropriate3.
You can’t use Instagram in a way that promotes violence or discrimination against LGBTQ+ people.
If your ads include content that is offensive or in violation of our Community Standards, we may take action.4.
You must not post content that promotes or glorifies violence or the criminal use of weapons.
The content should be of a consensual nature.5.
If it’s not appropriate to post on Instagram, your content must be removed.
If an advertiser can’t remove the ad, they can’t create an account on Instagram.
If they can create an Instagram account, they must remove the account within 24 hours.6.
You have the right to post up to 20 photos per day on Instagram (you must use a separate account to post).
You may post up the same photos over and over again for as long as you want.
You may also add new photos if you like.
The Instagram app and its community guidelines also apply.7.
