How To Run a Business On Instagram

Many people are starting to become more aware of the business opportunities which are present on the platform of Instagram.  With millions of unique users daily and its recent integration of allowing users to create a business profile, it’s entirely possible to run a business right from Instagram and into your pocket.

It’s important to know the tricks of the trade before diving in blindly, however.  In order to successfully get your name out there and get customers and retain them, you’ll have to start with the basics.  Here are some of the best tips for running a successful business platform on Instagram.


Complete Your Business Profile


Make sure that you complete your profile using a business account.  This means the nature of your business will be listed below your username, as well as information on your product, how to find your place of business, and how the customer will receive their shipped products.


Try to make sure that your profile description is professional and reflects the nature of your business accurately.  Try to avoid using emojis or things that you wouldn’t put on a business website.  After all, this is your brand you are pitching, not your personal account.  Keep it strictly business to maintain a professional feel.


Follow For Follow


One of the best things you can do for your business’s credibility is to get a lot of followers.  When you have a lot of followers you ensure that your customers know that you are the real deal and have a following of people that believe in you and your business.
