No matter what your business is, it’s likely that you’ve considered implementing a social media strategy. Whether your company is B2B or B2C, it’s essential to consider connecting with your customers in the digital space — especially when you consider that there are 2.77 billion social media users around the world.

Once you know you need a strategy, where do you start? For many small business owners Instagram seems like the obvious choice, given the way the platform lends itself to brand building.

Optimizing these three elements of your Instagram profile will help you build a social media strategy that truly benefits your business.
