Instagram is arguably the most important form of social media for brands. The platform offers simple marketing abilities combined with effective direct-to-consumer tools that create a sandbox of opportunity for your marketing strategies. At Captivate, we know how to activate your full potential.
Instagram is fast-growing and simple to use. What that means is there are countless potential users out there waiting to interact with your brand. Our team takes a holistic approach to marketing and advertising, tapping into that world of opportunity on an intimate and genuine level.
What content do you like to follow on the Internet? Probably a combination of information, humor, culture, and other specific interests. That’s how you should think about your brand’s Instagram presence — would you like it. A smart Instagram social strategy offers meaningful content that’s engaging and enlightening, leading to organic growth.
Users aren’t stupid. It’s easy to see through obvious marketing ploys, which means that targeted advertising is a challenging strategy to get right. But with our years of experience, we understand the difference between “forcing it” and “getting it.” We’ll ensure your budgets are spent wisely and efficiently.

Instagram marketing uses several strategies and best practices. It’s vital to uncover preliminary data about your target audiences, as this information constructs a strategy best suited for your brand’s objectives. Best practices include:
Although Facebook has more than double the volume of active users (about 2.4 billion versus a little over 1 billion on Instagram), both Facebook and Instagram offer great opportunities to engage with target users. The nature of your brand, its target audiences, and its strategic objectives dictate which social platforms will work best for your social marketing.
Facebook caters toward content sharing, local business, and community engagement (with events, reviews, marketplace, etc.). Instagram, meanwhile, is a simplified, visual-centric platform that works well for specific brand initiatives. As part of our services, we help determine which platforms work best for your brand’s goals.
Instagram offers incredible marketing potential for a wide range of brands and businesses. As an engaging, visual-centric platform, brands thrive using Instagram as part of their content marketing and inbound marketing strategies.
However, like most social marketing programs, we advise investing in platforms beyond Instagram. Diversifying your brand’s marketing strategy with other social and traffic channels adds greater cohesion, efficacy, and results. While we encourage B2C companies to explore Instagram marketing, remember to use it as one of many components of your digital strategy.
