My 3rd post on #Blogchatterprojects had a hint of the direction,my research is going.
My first post :The problem
Today in my 3rd post I will talk about two very visual social media and their role in my blog’s life.
Instagram is addictive .Like Pinterest it’s visual.Next to Facebook it accounts for the second most popular visual advertising media for brands.
What’s cool about Instagram?
Brands want to use it for fun contextual ads.Not staged stuff.
Quirky videos ,funny or inspirational quotes all built around a # can make your marketing fun.
Most frustrating part for me:
The organic reach and follow unfollow game.
The click through on post .
It’s very personal and the insta audience are receptive .
I see fun videos with me talking has quicker reach than videos with educational material.
I need to work on making the educational videos more fun I guess.
Brands are willing to pay for contextual ads than conventional ones .
Instagram ads are cool way to drive traffic as the link clicking gets easier than with regular posts.
What I am loving #follows .
The better your content for a # more chance of higher reach.
Quick videos work well here .
I like the no headache method of earning from it .
Great way to build up a brand story.
I love Pinterest.
It has given me good traffic but for this project I took it upon me to pin regularly with my pin buddies.
