Are you ready to launch an instagram account? You may think you already know the answer to this question, since you are taking this course, but if you take the time to think it through, you may discover that Instagram is not the platform for you. Believe it or not, there are some very good reasons why you may want to invest your time and money elsewhere instead of leaping into to launch your instagram account right now.
– Do you have the time to dedicate to Instagram? Unlike Facebook and Twitter which can be scheduled and auto-posted, while Instagram posts can be scheduled, the engagement should be done must in real time, not to mention shadow banning, which means no more copying and pasting the same hashtags over and over. Instagram is the most time consuming of any social platform, so be sure you have the time to dedicate before you sign yourself up.
– Do you have the skill to represent yourself on Instagram? Gone are the days when any old photo will do. Instagram has become highly curated, and in order to represent yourself well you need to a) have a product/service/brand that can be represented will in images and video, and b) have the tools and skills to capture and edit them beautifully.
– Is your target market on Instagram? Even though you’ve decided you have the time and skills to manage your Instagram account, none of that matters if the people you want to talk to aren’t on Instagram. only 11% of 50-64 year olds are on Instagram, so if this makes up your entire demographic, Instagram may not be the platform for you.
