It’s amazing how some of the simplest concepts can become icons of marketing genius on the Internet. Instagram is like that. What could be more simple than taking a photo and instantly sharing it with the world with a short comment and location? You see, the founders of Instagram recognized a basic human trait and ran with it. People love to share, especially when they see things they like. How many of us like to take a trip to the Grand Canyon alone? It’s always more fun with family or friends. However, even alone, Instagram puts our visual experiences out there for immediate sharing and commenting by others.
OK, but aren’t we all overwhelmed with yet another new techie online service that we now have to set up, use, tie into our other techie online services, and try to use to make money? It’s easy to get overwhelmed, but the facts are clear. Instagram is a player, which is why Facebook bought them. It grew virally on mobile, and this made it very valuable. How is it valuable to us, the Internet marketers who seek profits from the Web?
In any marketing endeavor where images are of value, Instagram has value. If we’re selling products, we take photos of products. If we’re selling in a niche as an affiliate marketer, such as sporting goods, we take photos not only of the products but people using them in sports. Or, it could be nature and scenery for travel or vacation related products or services. Images incite emotion in people, and Instagram makes it easy to take a photo and have it up for the world to see in seconds; including the location of the shot if we want.
