Why You Should Be Using Instagram for Your Business!



Instagram is great, it might be up for debate that Instagram is quickly surpassing Facebook in popularity status! In my opinion, 4 Reasons why YOU should use Instagram for your Businessevery business should be using Instagram to their advantage. All in all, it’s in my opinion that EVERY business should be using EVERY social media outlet that exists! Why wouldn’t you?!

So, here’s the deal – these are the 4 reasons why YOU should jump on the digital bandwagon of INSTAGRAM!

1. Instagram has no news feed algorithm

Think about Facebook; they are constantly changing and switching things around. One day all of your fans can see your fanpage post, the next day you’re getting half the interaction you did prior. AND NOW, Facebook made it so only 1-2% of your actual Facebook fans can see your post without spending money (this is commonly referred to as edgerank or algorithms)! Unbelievable!

Well, guess what!? Instagram has NO edgerank or algorithm. Every single image that you share to your Instagram feed is seen in the news feeds of your fans. So, what does this mean for your business? THIS MEANS THAT it is much easier to get more engagement and user interactions. However, don’t post images that nobody cares about – post images that are eye grabbers and draws people’s attention.

2. Humans are VISUAL

DID YOU KNOW: 93% of our communications with others is non-verbal?
IMAGES convey emotional responses to our audience. What we visually SEE has a significant effect on what we DO, who we are and how we feel. Since Instagram is all ‘image-based’ your business has an opportunity to convey a message in a unique way. Tip: Think before you post! Be thoughtful in what images you want representing your business.

 3. Instagram Offers a Personal Touch

Not only are the various kinds of photo edits unique, but Instagram gives us the opportunity to give a personal touch to our business. It’s not uncommon to post ‘behind the scenes’ type photos on Instagram. People like to see WHO makes up the business, what goes on behind closed doors, etc. I would strongly advise against posting advertisement after advertisement – you will get nowhere and people WILL NOT follow you! Would you want to follow someone that was constantly in your face trying to sell you something? NO!

Make Instagram a home where customers can come to view interesting operations of your business, have a laugh and learn some valuable information!

 4. Enter a New Market

As I mentioned earlier, Instagram is becoming QUITE popular; especially among the younger generations. Your business needs to be where YOUR customers are – and that is on Instagram (and all social media in general)! Ask yourself: who is your target demographic? You most likely have a clear vision of that type of person. BUT, what if you could open your market to a whole new set of demographical data? What if your business is missing out on sales because of the rise of social media and outlets such as Instagram? My advice: jump on board and see what all the fuss is about; you might be pleasantly surprised. After all, what do you have to lose?

Wal-Mart’s New Cheap Organic Foods?



Intrigued by Wal-Mart’s NEW CHEAP Organic foods? Well we were so we did a little research! Wal-Mart recently released a statement saying they would be partnering with Wild Oats (a former brand of Whole Foods), and that the food was going to be 25% less than all other Organic foods found elsewhere.

“We’re removing the premium associated with organic groceries,” said Jack L. Sinclair, executive vice president of Wal-Mart U.S.’s grocery division. The Wild Oats organic products will be priced the same as similar non-organic brand-name goods.”              -NEW YORK TIMES

The New York Times also suggests that Wal-Marts move towards organic might push the price of Organic in the long run since they would supply such a large supply. Mark Smallwood stated “The issue is that there aren’t the subsidies available to organic farmers that there are [for conventional farmers.] So there’s a question in my mind about how Wal-Mart is going to pull this off and be able to make profit,” Smallwood said. “And for them to even come out and make that statement before they’ve started is a huge question mark. Somebody’s going to have to pay, and my hope is that it’s not the organic farmer.” Smallwood also is concerned with the mass Organic Operation and what it could do to all the Organic fields. “Will a large agricultural operation come in and buy up tens of small family farms and put them all under one name, and then create that slash-and-burn model?” Smallwood said. “That’s what I’m afraid of. That’s the [possible] downside.”

I don’t want to be a downer, and I know its possible this could end up working in everyones favor so for now I guess we are just going to have to see how it all plays out, and hope for the best!!! What are your thoughts on what will happen?
