Infographic: 10 Myths about Instagram for Business

Those who work in social media marketing know that the field can be very stressful. For example, a failure of a single marketing strategy can make or break the business because it may undermine the reputation of the company. Social media game is constantly changing, so if you don’t follow the latest trends, you could be outperformed by your competitors very quickly.

In some cases, panic is another important factor. For example, if the number of likes and followers is reducing, it is easy to believe all those myths floating around how the developers of Instagram changed algorithms and how it will reduce the effectiveness of your social media strategy. Sure, a change in the algorithm may slightly affect your performance, but that doesn’t mean that the sky is falling.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths out there, and some of them may seem legit. For example, one of them suggests that you should use the “follow for follow” strategy on Instagram. That is, you should follow others to be followed by them and build your audience this way.

However, as described in the infographic created by Proessaywriting below, not a lot of Instagram users tend to return the favor and ignore follow requests. The reason is very simple: the amount of these requests can be overwhelming, so who wants to deal with every business trying to become your follower?

Besides, this strategy, even if effective, will not create a quality audience. Those who agree to follow a business may do it because they want to increase their followership as well. As the result, you may have a thousand of followers who are not interested in your product at all. In this case, quantity does not play any appreciable role.

According to the infographic, a much better strategy is to avoid “follow for follow” and focus on creating quality content that can genuinely attract people. This way, you’ll build an audience that is truly interested in what you’re doing.

However, if you would stick with the “follow for follow” strategy, you’ll be going pretty much nowhere. All because of a myth. Clearly, you need to know what’s true and false, to make sure that you’re going in the right direction.

We present you the infographic ’10 Myths About Instagram for Business’ to move beyond those myths and gain more followers immediately. It has a list of ten popular urban legends that can impact your business.
