By gaining these statistics, you will be able to produce a clear Instagram strategy for yourself moving forward.

2. Take A Look At Your Page Overview

First impressions count and your page overview is the easiest way to express your branding. Ensure you add a profile picture, cover pictures for your Highlights and a clear and concise summary of what your business does. Perhaps try using emoji’s as bullet points for easy reading.

3. Use Instagram Stories To Your Advantage

Think of Instagram Stories as another way to express what your business is all about. From branded graphics to behind the scenes shots, you really can create something interesting for your viewers!
