Instagram is becoming a great place for marketers to connect with their prospects and customers and to get leads.
If you are wondering what exactly you should post on Instagram, here are 9 post types that are typically used for marketing.
Food posts. People love pictures of food. Make sure your food posts are attractive and/or intriguing. I actually saw one person who has a whole blog dedicated to burnt foods. It seems she is a busy person and often burns her dinner. She gets tons of traffic from her burnt food images.
Product posts. Posting pictures of your products or services is a great way to add to your branding.
Customer/client/subscriber posts. Post about how yours are using your products or services to achieve success, happiness and satisfaction. Post a picture with a story.
