Elevating your Instagram business account: a tour through Instagram tools and features to make your business page shine

Over 1 billion people use Instagram, with half of those accessing the platform every day. Is this a platform that your business can afford to ignore?

Instagram continues to be developed rapidly, with the platform moving away from just a social media network into a broadcasting suite, entertainment hub and ecommerce store. Younger audiences in particular are living their entire lives through Instagram: finding products and services they love and sharing them with their friends.

It’s not all aspiration and inspiration. Increasingly there is a business case for all organisations to have some presence on Instagram,but understanding the many applications of the platform can be overwhelming. This workshop will break down the different functionality available and feed into specific additional webinars available on this programme.
