Instagram, the popular photo-sharing app, has a lot to celebrate as it hits the 400 million user mark, surpassing Twitter user count by a mile. The company stated in a blog post that over 75% of Instagram users live outside the United States, adding that more than 100 million new users live in Asia and Europe. The rapidly evolving, Facebook-owned social app has added new features and expanded its advertising and digital marketing platform in the recent months. eMarketer, a digital marketing research firm, predicts Instagram will bring in 2.8 billion dollars advertising revenue in 2017.
Instagram’s huge growth in engagement and user base makes it a powerful advertising and content marketing tool for businesses. Since the social media platform has gotten serious about ads, brands are empowered to take their marketing efforts up a notch and optimise their use of social media for business growth. For starters, Instagram’s algorithmic feed drives high engagement rate and increases brand-consumer marketing communications. On top of that, the video- and photo-sharing app’s ability to target its ads to specific audience using Facebook’s data and technology opens a lot of doors for brands to enhance their social media marketing in Malaysia and boost their sales conversion.
