Are you finding more people are telling you that you need to be on Instagram? Have you been wondering if there could potentially be an ROI with Instagram for business use?
There comes a time when a movement makes so much noise that you can’t help but pay attention to what’s going on. That point where you realize…this thing isn’t going away. I believe we’ve hit that point with Instagram and there are a few compelling stats to back it up.
Though Twitter isn’t too far behind, Instagram has taken a lead. Twitter has been struggling to keep up with Instagram’s growth since late last year and with IG passing the 300 million active user mark first, Twitter has a lot to be concerned about.
Instagram’s engagement is incredible. Some of the highest stats I’ve seen in engagement show up to 22 times the amount of engagement on Facebook and Twitter.
The example below shows the same image posted to Oreo’s Twitter and Instagram account with Instagram demolishing in engagement numbers…with less than half the amount of followers.
