Instagram Stories: a new way to reach audiences through videos

Social networks entered our lives as a tool that allows us to connect from anywhere. For users, Facebook and Instagram are social media. For advertiser, these are marketing platforms where companies can interact with their existing and potential clients.

Recently, Instagram launched a new feature: Instagram Stories, a feature that quickly changed digital marketing. When Facebook launched it, it stated that it looked to increase its digital ad revenues. Today, there are around 150 million of active users per year, and in the past 6 months, the time a person spends watching the videos increased by 40%.

In the case of Instagram, Instagram Stories inspired large companies to publish, on a daily basis, innovative contents and share them with their followers.

MAC
MAC Cosmetics was a pioneer in using Instagram Stories. Users can see daily tutorials or tips on how to better use MAC products.

 Forbes

When you hear Forbes, the first thing you may think about is a magazine specialized in the financial world. However, Forbes creates daily appealing content related to their core activity, where animation and explanatory videos are the major attraction.

THE FORGOTTEN IMPORTANCE OF BRANDING IN DIGITAL ADVERTISTING
