Hashtags are a great way to promote your product through little words and phrases that will stick with the audience. When a hashtag is in the caption of your Instagram post the view can click on it and see other posts with that tag. This feature makes it easier for the public to see a thread of all the posts the business has made as well as posts that consumers make about the product. Many businesses encourage the use of a certain hashtag so when the consumers use the hash tag their followers will see the hashtag and the product. Encouraging posts with your specific hashtag also helps, because as posts with that hashtag are made they are added to what viewers see when they look up your hashtag. This feature adds an easily discoverable peer opinion to your product.
Instagram offers a feature that will allow you to pay to advertise your business on their site. There are so many ways to do this on Instagram. You can create “stories”, these will appear as people go through the people they follow’s Instagram stories. These are generally short videos, no longer than 60 seconds, but they can also be a still visual, where you can draw attention to your business. You may also have ads that just show up as people are scrolling through their news feed. These ads may be little videos like stories, a single image, or they can be a compilation of up to 10 photos. Instagram allows businesses to choose the demographic they want to advertise to. You can specify the location, interests, and other demographics of the viewer you want to see the ad.
