Instagram is such a personal social networking site. It’s all about sharing photographs with your friends, and using those photos to say something about yourself.
But, did you know that Instagram is also great for increasing engagement and raising awareness for your blog?
Instagram may not be the first social platform you’d think of promoting your blog on because of its strong emphasis on personal relationships, and strict attitude against advertising. But, if this new wave of marketing (social and content) has taught us anything it’s that it’s not all about direct selling anymore.
Great blogging is about showing the human side of your brand and creating a trusting relationship with your customers. It’s about offering the customer something for free, even if it’s just some advice, or a funny photo to get people talking about your business. It’s reasons like this that have drawn 67% of the world’s biggest brands to Instagram.
