With almost half a billion active users today what makes a lot of sense for your business to maintain an Instagram presence and have access to this huge number of Instagram users. It's not as simple as it looks though.
To be successful in promoting a product or service in this social media platform requires thorough analysis of demographics data to come up with the right marketing campaign for any specific product or service. This means that the demographics determine how the content should be written, how the images should be presented. Even how emojis should be used.
The amount of attention that any of your post potentially gets depends on how many followers you have. For example, to get at least 100 likes each time you post, your account should have more than 2,000 followers.
Here are more useful Instagram statistics.
