3 Content Marketing Tips to Grow Your Business on Instagram

Goal Setting: The first step to success is goal setting. Without a goal, how would you measure success? So, make sure you start by asking what do you plan to achieve with Instagram as a marketing channel – pick one or two and make sure that is the objective of all content that will be created going forward:
Increase awareness of your brand
Increase brand loyalty
Build up a brand community
And more…
Plan Your Content: Success does not come by chance. Behind every successful Instagram profile, is a planner (or sometimes a team of planners) who decide what kind of content will be created for the profile.
What type of content will be published? (From promotional visuals, behind the scenes videos, testimonial posts, etc…)
How often will the content be published? (This will affect how much resources – be it time or manpower –you will require to create the content)
A Consistent Brand Identity: Visuals are key on a platform like Instagram. As such it is key that the content that you create has a strong visual identity that allows your customers to associate your brand with your content.
Consistent colors, filters, editing styles, and typography help maintain a cohesive visual identity for content – be it on the feed or stories
