Instagram Ads Management Services

Our Instagram Ads management services are our fastest-growing sector. While Facebook and Google are still the top two places to see advertising success (learn more here), Instagram continues to grow in adoption every day.

Our campaign strategies are entirely designed to meet the needs of our clients based on your industry marketplace. Companies that sell products, especially to those ages 15 to 35, can do extremely well advertising on the platform. We manage each of our clients’ accounts daily and regularly monitor bid prices and budget to make sure we are maximizing return on ad spend.

Benefits of Advertising on Instagram

Reach new potential customers (beyond your followers).

Bring in new website visitors, grow online sales, get the phones ringing, or keep customers coming back for more. With over 1 billion users, an almost equal gender split, and all age ranges getting involved (70% are under 35 years, but even if that isn’t your demographic, that still leaves A BIG audience to capture), getting started with Instagram Ads is a no-brainer.

Share your story.

If you have a good backstory to your business, this is the place where we would emphasize that background. Either way, video “story” ads are awesome because they show up to a user before the user even realizing they’re viewing an ad. According to the platform, stories make “full use of the mobile screen, offering businesses an immersive, distraction-less canvas.” We can help you get a piece of this very lucrative pie.

Compete with the big players in your industry.

According to Instagram, 84% of people on the platform are more likely to shop from a small business. These users aren’t searching for your product or service specifically, so there isn’t a big brand that can outrank you here. We make sure that your spend is maximized by serving your ads to the right audience, and with a space as big as Instagram there is plenty of room to get involved and be seen when you have the right strategy in place.

Drive awareness.

Unlike Google Ads, those on Instagram aren’t searching for a product or service like yours specifically. This makes the leads you capture on Instagram those at the top of your sales funnel, so your first step is getting the right people, based on demographic information, familiar with your brand. We can help you get started, but also expand your audience based on the data we start to see come through the platform.

Create lookalike audiences.

Expanding on the the story above, another benefit is the ability to create lookalike audiences. In other words, we can take your target audience’s demographic information (including location, household income, and more), and then create a lookalike audience where we will then serve your ads and hopefully capture new customers and expand brand awareness.

A great compliment to Facebook.

To get started with advertising, you have to have a Facebook Page for your business. We typically recommend having us manage both Facebook and Instagram because they both utilize the same Ads Manager tool, meaning you can see your metrics for both platforms side-by-side. This helps us play off each platform to eventually hone in on what ads work for which audience and maximize your spend (remember, Instagram is owned by Facebook!).

A clear ROI.

The platform gathers a huge amount of data for you surrounding your ads, including cost per click, position, impressions, and more. When you know how to slice and dice these metrics, you can clearly understand your return on investment.

Our Instagram Ads Management Style

Almost all of our clients come to us for one of two main reasons:

  • They’ve advertised on Instagram before, but never with Instagram stories.
  • They don’t think that Instagram is really their target audience, but they’re doing well with Facebook advertising so they’re curious

It can be difficult to create an engaging video, but 50% of users say they have visited a website because of seeing it in their stories, so you can’t afford to not get involved. It’s easy to get caught up in trying to increase follower numbers and focus on that group of people only, but advertising is a huge part of how you get to that point.

In other words, we believe advertising to a new and relevant audience should come first before spending thousands on beautiful imagery for your page. Instagram advertising is all about brand awareness and capturing new people to engage with your brand. As your ads continue to run, we’ll identify trends for you throughout the week and help you make the changes needed for maximum Instagram ROI.

Our Instagram Ads Philosophy

As you may have realized while reading above, managing your Facebook and Instagram Ad campaigns in tandem will yield you the best results . We are happy to manage just your Instagram Ads, but always recommend we have some sort of management in place for Facebook Ads as well to truly maximize spend and create a full picture of your sales funnel.

Keep in mind: Even if you don’t feel like your business is a prime candidate to be marketing on Instagram, it’s important to do some testing and have a presence to determine for sure. We surprise our clients all the time when it comes to success on the platform.
