Instagram is fairly ‘new’ to the scene of social media but that doesn’t mean it is not a powerful tool in your marketing tool kit. The cliche pictures tell 1,000 words is very true and when it comes to your product on social media it probably tells more than that.
The beauty of Instagram is that this is original content that can be uploaded to your feed without much effort and can be leveraged against other social media. The Instagram app lets you post to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, Foursquare and send out via email. So if that 1 picture tells 1,000 words on Instagram, it also says 1,000 words on each of the other social media outlets that are connected and that allows for your product to go viral fairly quickly.
