With the ever-increasing presence of Social Media in society, it is now widely accepted that any business must have an effective social media marketing strategy to provide them with a well-defined position on the various social media sites and networks.
The difficulty, however, lies in choosing on which platforms to focus your marketing efforts. Yes, Facebook and Twitter are both great and powerful but, just like a billboard loses it's effectiveness when positioned right next to 10 others, it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish your marketing efforts on the major social media sites. The time has come for marketers to look for new and innovative ways to utilise the power of social media.
Why you should be using Instagram for your business

Instagram is one of the world's most popular social network apps and is widely used by individuals to share photos and short video clips, but the business potential of this platform is largely overlooked. By using Instagram to promote your business, no matter what industry you find yourself in, you will be opening up a channel through which you can reach thousands of new customers around the globe.
