- BTS or behind the scenes videos, these are really popular these days. You can share a look of your office, store front or production process with the followers.
- Videos are the most common content type available on Instagram. Videos of your products and services can be shared with your followers. The video should be short as usually people don’t spend much time on long videos and we will ensure that.
- Text based images. Because Instagram does not provide a dedicated section to post textual content like Facebook does. It does allow to write the caption though but that is different. Most of the times, images has to be used to post textual information. Our experts will create visually appealing text based images.
- UGC or user generated content. This is one of the best method to promote your products. In UGC, a user shares his or her experience with your product by posting it on their personal account, it may be a picture of a dress that you sell or shoes or books. Then you can share their post, with their permission, on your Instagram account.
These were some of the content types that we use to promote your products.
