Our Instagram Advertising approach

Our proven Instagram Ads Audit & Management service includes:

Instagram Advertising Consultancy

We then advise and guide you through every step of either auditing or setting up your Instagram Advertising account.

Instagram Custom Audiences Creation

The best way to increase brand awareness and increase conversions is to start by finding people who already know you on Instagram. We do this by using your email address data to find matches with Instagram user profiles and create Custom Audiences.

Instagram Audience Targeting Strategy

Once we have segmented your existing customers, general email subscribers and Instagram followers, we overlay your Instagram Custom Audiences with audience targeting data. Instagram Advertising targeting options include location, hobbies, job titles, age and professions so you can reach your ideal audience.

Instagram Advertising Strategy

Depending on your Instagram media spend and business goals, we will set up your Instagram Advertising Strategy to maximise your visibility, clicks and return on investment and create a plan for rolling out campaigns. Within the first month of working together we will present our recommended Instagram Ad Campaign Strategy, along with various ad creatives and priority campaign activities for your approval.

Instagram Remarketing Campaigns

Once your Instagram Advertising campaigns are live, another Instagram Advertising technique that can be very effective in driving eCommerce sales and direct response, is Instagram Remarketing. You can use sequential messaging to different Instagram users depending on whether they’ve previously purchased, viewed, clicked or engaged with your ads. For example, an effective way to grow repeat purchases is to promote a new pair of trainers to previous customers who previously bought from the same brand in the past.

Instagram Ads Management

Our Instagram Ad Agency Professionals manage your campaigns on a daily basis to get ongoing performance gains. Instagram management activities include directing your Instagram Ads Strategy, analysing account performance, refining bids, testing new ad creative and deploying new campaign targeting such as location based sales promotions when customers are near your physical stores or venues.

Instagram Ads Reporting

As ecommerce and lead generation specialists, our Instagram Advertising reports track brand impressions, engagements, clicks, cost, sales performance, return on ad spend and cost per acquisition as standard. All our Instagram Advertising reporting is bespoke, tailored to your goals with actionable insights and what we will be doing next to enhance performance.

Award winners

We’re proud to have won the CIM Marketing Excellence Award for Best Use of Digital Marketing for the last two years in a row. We’re also the winners of the Chartered Institute of Marketing Award for Best Marketing Performance Measurement.
