With a platform like Instagram, promoting a business has become easier than ever. Business owners are now leaving out the idea of a website and focusing on using Instagram for promotion.
The platform has made it possible to showcase your works to potential customers. With Instagram, all that’s needed is finding that perfect business idea, and increasing your followership and engagement with attention-grabbing posts.
If you’re probably thinking of a productive line of business to begin, how to go about promoting it and getting your message out there, here are 5 Instagram-friendly businesses you can go into:
Events happen in Nigeria on a daily basis, and organisers definitely use caterers. From food to pastries and cakes, caterers of all kinds have joined the Instagram chain, making the business look classier than ever.
If you’re a skilled caterer, you can begin to display your works on the platform, provide your services for events or simply set up a catering service that delivers meals to clients at their location. If this is done well, a mention on Instagram can get you a referral that’ll turn your business around.
Whether you’re into fashion designing or you simply would love to go into sales of fashion items for male, female or both genders, Instagram can come as a great source of promotion.
Through the platform, you can post those beautiful outfits and designs while you work on growing your followership. In the short term, it’ll catch the attention of those who’ll love to see themselves wear a number of fashion items on your page.
The photography business is currently making waves on Instagram. It’s also very lucrative, and you can have jobs that cover weddings, family, school, church events and many more. To begin, you have to master the art of photography, kick-off with free photo sessions with family and friends, then you can begin to show people what you do via Instagram.
Although, with a large number of photographers on the platform, you’ll have to be doing something unique with photographs you’re posting in order for our voice to be heard.
This is one line of business that is dominating the platform. Upcoming and well-known make-up artistes post diverse pictures daily, showing their handiwork on the faces of clients. From makeup for brides to models covering magazine covers or hitting the runway and that of regular clients just going for events, make-up artists get jobs daily. By promoting yourself well, you can join the league of those up in the ladder.
Delving into this line of business requires that you have gathered the skills over the years, then you can begin with friends and family members, uploading photos of works, and in turn attracting customers. A single mention from a happy customer on Instagram may be all you need for your business to blossom.
5. Event Management
The event management industry is growing rapidly and looking really appealing. One thing that has made this possible is Instagram.
With a mention from happy clients, pictures of the beautiful hall of events you has just organised to happy attendees having fun, you can create a lot of engaging and appealing posts on Instagram, enabling potential customers to see what you do and engage your services.
