Be Creative

Marketing is more art than science and you can see that in how we formulate Instagram ads. Effective advertising isn’t just sending information to a target demographic, it’s about creating interesting and beautiful content that makes users want to learn more about your company and inspire them to seek out your products or services.

Optimize Your Content

Optimizing an ad is the process of making it effective and refined without sacrificing intent. What that looks like is using the right images, choosing the right words that elicit emotion without exceeding the limits of the medium, and scaling the media to maintain quality while covering as much of the visual spectrum as possible.

Set Your Budget

Before the return comes the investment. Since Instagram uses the same advertising tools as Facebook, we can set ad budgets at either daily increments or lifetime advertising totals. Although daily budgets tend to be more economical, lifetime budgets give more flexibility in scheduling your ad delivery.

Keep Track of the Numbers

We are obsessed with metrics and analytics We want our campaigns to be successful, so we keep track of the minutia to see how our approach is working. Analyzing click-through rates, cost per clicks, and testing different ad methods help us, and by extension you, get a better idea of how to formulate ads for maximum effect.
