WHY INSTAGRAM ADS?
While organic social media strategies might seem cost-effective at first, they’re time consuming, rely on a lot of trial and error, and can only get you so far when you’re up against ever-changing social media algorithms.
This is why it’s so important to focus on a social media strategy that incorporates both organic and paid tactics.
Instagram is essentially a visual platform meaning text ads are not why people come to use this service. So you either must produce compelling photo posts or video posts, or a combination of the two in story or carousel post formats.
