#LyricMarketingTips #15 for 2014: Should you use Instagram in your marketing?

With over 200 million active monthly users, sharing an average of 60 million photos every day that receive 1.6 billion LIKES – every day, I definitely think you should consider using Instagram to tell your marketing story!

Here are some tips/information about how to successfully bring Instagram into your marketing mix:

  • Instagram was recently purchased by Facebook, making it the web’s dominant image sharing site.
  • Think about image sharing as part of your content marketing strategy.
  • Post images that accompany your content with a link to the piece, this way your picture-sharing directs the user back to for content.
  • Share unique behind-the-scenes and personal content, this gives your content an exclusivity factor.
  • Tying your promotions to images with a call for action will help with engagement and conversions.
  • Ask your followers for pictures that represent your brand and reward the best contributor with recognition.
  • Offer high-quality peripheral content, if it’s interesting, it’s worth sharing.
  • Do you use video in your marketing? Instagram now offers easy syndication of short videos.
  • Post visually stimulating pictures of your brand in action, reinforcing your brand and services.
  • Be sure to use #hashtags  for better visibility and trending opportunities.

When building a strategy that uses photos to tell your compelling story, be sure to be creative and take pictures that are colorful, well lit and have a sense of humor – have fun! Below are a few photos that have had great success in driving traffic to various blog posts I have written.
