Do you have an Instagram Shop?
This is why you need to set up a shop. There are 1 billion active monthly users on Instagram worldwide and 80% of those users follow a business on Instagram. Using shopping tags, you can make it easy for your customers to see a product and be able to buy it without wasting time searching your website.
🛒 What is an Instagram Shop?
An Instagram Shop lets you integrate your product catalogue with your Instagram profile. This allows you to promote your products directly to Instagram users through your posts, Stories, in the Explore tab, and in the Shop tab on your profile.
🛍 Why use it?
Shopping on Instagram allows your customers a new way to engage and shop with your brand. It lets your Instagram page turn into a visual storefront, where Instagram users can browse your product range without leaving the platform.
