How To Set Up An Instagram Profile From Scratch: Pro Tips To Boost Your Brand's Traffic In A Month – Design School

How To Set Up An Instagram Profile From Scratch: Pro Tips To Boost Your Brand's Traffic In A Month – Design School | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it
But one platform that is often overlooked, yet packs a powerful punch, is Instagram.

On the surface, it makes sense to brush it off. After all it’s:

Mobile only
Based around images
Confusing
Which doesn’t exactly sound like something you’d learn to take advantage of in Business-101. But here’s the thing…

Your customers are always on their phones (the average person checks their cell phone 110 times a day)
They’re crying out for images
It’s not as confusing as you’d think
And to top it all off, it’s one of the most subscribed social media platforms in the world, with 75 million daily users.

These tech tools offer the teacher a wide array of options that can serve a multitude of purposes.
