How to use Facebook and Instagram for business

How many times have you wished that you knew “How to” do something? Well, at iCrossing we are here to help with How to guides covering all different areas of the digital marketing landscape. This is How to Facebook and Instagram ads.

Facebook is the most popular social media platform in the world. With over 2.5 billion active users every month, people use Facebook to stay in touch with their friends and family, get entertainment and news updates, as well as following their favourite brands and companies. Instagram (which is owned by Facebook) currently boasts around 1 billion monthly active users and caters to an overall slightly younger demographic than the Facebook platform. It is also the second most logged in social media site for daily use after Facebook.

With such a vast number of active users covering a broad audience demographic, it makes sense for any marketer to want in on the advertising game with these two platforms.
