Another reason Instagram is so great for ecommerce has to do with the platform itself. As we mentioned in the previous chapter, Instagram has recently introduced a ton of new business-facing tools -- and there’s definitely more to come! Whether through links in Instagram Stories or shoppable Instagram posts, soon enough many of our online shopping experiences will start (and end) on Instagram.
Many people often struggle to do a number of things within the less-than-enough 24-hour window every day. Of the many things they do, managing the Instagram page every day, especially liking others' photographs or following them isn’t one due to shortage of time. So if you cannot afford to spend more than just a few minutes on marketing every day, Instamacro will do the job for you.
“I bought the 500 followers. Shut my phone off for a bit and when I came back online, I seen I had 100 followers on my notifications. Wasn't too impressed at first, then I clicked on my profile and they jumped a whole 1300, I was convinced it was $5 but then when converting to Canadian it was close to $10. The 1000 followers made up for the conversion to Canadian currency. Would recommend this to anyone”
While hopefully your industry isn’t that strict, the fact of the matter is new business accounts, and by association, new businesses, have a really hard time getting seen. It’s a little-known trick, but plenty of companies have already purchased Instagram followers. That’s right, restaurants, athletes, clothing brands, and even politicians have all bought followers for their accounts and have seen amazing results. By spending a small portion of your marketing budget on Instagram followers, you are pretty much doing the same thing as paying to promote a post on Instagram. The difference is, your money goes much farther when you buy followers because you are certain to receive the amount you purchase. When you boost a post, the best you can do is hope to reach a couple hundred followers, and results are not guaranteed.
