The Complete Guide to Advertising on Instagram [Infographic] | Social Media Today​Instagram advertising is the hot ticket in social media marketing at the moment. The Facebook-owned visual platform has launched a range of new ad options this year, and some analysts have predicted that Instagram could be generating as much as 10% of Facebooks overall ad revenue within two years, such is the size of the opportunity on the platform. Currently the fastest growing social network in the world, there’s no doubting there’s a lot of potential in Instagram ads – but there are some concerns that an influx of promoted content could dampen enthusiasm for the platform and turn regular users away.
